I saw two preists in a high end raiding guild chatting in /say and one said 'sp+haste gems generate 4 more hps per gem than sp'. I just lauged thinking 'What error bars are there on that?' Theorycrafting for specific changes has to work off a certain rotation and a certain gear setup, there are assumptions to make the calculations. Now these assumptions will differ player to player and raid to raid. The errors could be greater than the increase in healing you calculate, there is always a chance you are reducing your HPS by following the theorycraft.But aside from that, is the change you are theorycrafting going to help save lives in a raid? More specifically, is it going to help YOU keep people alive? Your own healing quirks and those of whatever raid you are in matter. My point is that once you have questioned the numbers from the theorycraft, question their relevance. For instance, is that DA doing anything? Is it hanging around not getting absorbed, (just for relevance, it probably is, but hypothetically, if it wasn't, then calculations based off it are not helping).
