You all, including the Author of the column, completely miss the most important point. The article essentially says: Overhealing is not always bad because sometimes it's better to bomb heal and overheal than to not overheal and have somebody die. But there are many many situations where overhealing is actually a good thing:1. A spell may be so efficient that even with substantial overheal it's the best option. For example, Prayer of Healing is the best spell to use to heal 4 people even if it overheals on the 5th. It's better than casting, for example, 4 flash heals. It's not that overheal is a "lesser evil". Overheal is simply not a bad thing at all here.2. Casting an AoE heal may be substantially faster than avoiding overheal. Time is a resource just as much as mana is. Anyway, I've written an article on overheal at:http://spotheal.wordpress.com/2009/06/18/overhealing-and-why-its-not-all-bad/Check it out.
