I have to ask... what is up with this??"Focused Insight (5 ranks available) - After casting any shock spell, your next heal's mana cost is reduced by 15/30/45/60/75% of the cost of the shock spell, and its healing effectiveness is increased by 5/10/15/20/25%."Suggesting that all healers should be throwing dps in their rotations akin to Paladin judgements?

It's not so much to make you DPS...the damage done by a holy paladin's judgments are negligible. It's just to give you another button to push when you're healing.Basically I hate judging on my paladin. It's stupid. I wish they would kill this dumb mechanic, not foist it upon more classes.

I'm in the camp that this can be a lot of fun - like building combo points for better heals. I'm hopeful it makes for a bit more inovative play that has us considering what moves go in front of other moves. Think about it, currently we we have to balance not only keeping people alive and not going oom over the long term of a fight and the very short term of not letting anyone die one cast at a time. It would be kind of cool to have some more tactics and interplay between healing spells cast next to each other. Like, my elemental shaman casts flame shock, then lava burst to assure a crit - casting x spell to make y spell better is fun for healing too I think. Now, I'm not sure those building moves have to be damaging moves, but it sure will make leveling in a healing build better.

If you have to cast two dps spells to ensure a crit on a healing spell, you just used 2/3 of you casts to dps.
