Can you explain why Blood Rites promotes the use of heart strike?

I belive it's because the death runes can be used to crank out lots of heart strikes.

What is the point of converting the runes used by death strike to death runes if you don't use them for something else. On live, that something else is heart strikes but if you do that on ptr you go with out your bubble from using death strike for extended periods of time hurting your survivability.

...and on live it means less healing, hurting survivability. This isn't new. Heart Strike comes out on top when damage is more important than the shield/heals, especially AoE damage with its new three target cleave, and Death Strike is more important when you need to hunker down and do the most to stay alive. If you find you never use those Death Runes for anything but Death Strikes, then I guess you've just saved yourself some talent points; there certainly seemed to be more that I could've picked up on the PTR, even without venturing into the second tier of Frost or Unholy.
