Actually, I can see that. It's difficult to believe, but I can.Plasma Foil has +2 Int, +46 Spirit, -1 crit rating, -52 haste and [assuming epic gems] -86 spell power.I can see [at certain levels of gearing, and depending on spec] where the +46 Spirit would be useful.Including Fel Armor (+46*.3) the foil will be only 73 spellpower under the blade. [please note, I am assuming destruction spec.]I don't have hard math in front of me, but 1.59% haste + 73 spell power would be probably around 2% DPS increase.At that rate, the 46 spirit would allow a decrease of 1 LT out of every 6.I haven't played my lock in a while [pre-3.2], but to stay topped off IIRC I was tapping pretty much every 10 casts, so 10% of the time.10%*5/6 > 2%.As I said, this is for a certain gear level and spec. In a raid, buffs will allow you to maintain mana efficiency to a much higher degree; I suggest checking those settings.
