Having recently made my off-spec Holy, I knew this after 10 minutes.I watched the bubbles change number, never stack, and the numbers were laughable.Why the devs can't figure this out with an entire beta, and months into the expansion is beyond me. Making the bubble stack would at least put it close to on par with haste.Have it stack whenever you have a crit and it might even make all the secondary stats decent.As it stands, the tier shoulders are worse than the shoulders in Heroic Throne of Tides. Something is wrong when you look at a 359 and think "meh."

The tier shoulders have crit - not mastery, which can be reforged into haste. The intellect gain over the heroic blues is 100% worth it due to Intellect being the most important stat by a landslide. The tier shoulders also have a red socket. Crit may not be our most desirable stat, but you're going to want more than a couple % spell crit to keep Conviction up. Now for something relevant to the article, the change to 15s would be helpful if we start raid healing. I doubt the holy priest wants to switch jobs though.

Yea, I mixed up mastery and crit in that comparison. Of course, the fact that tier shoulders have THE worst stat all over them seems kind of counter productive. Come to think of it, as Chase has already mentioned "Where's the effing Haste on Holydin tier?!"Losing 30 int for that insane amount of haste isn't actually a bad thing though, especially with it having all that crit.The 15 second thing, for raid healing? Not so much. If you have no disc priest, maybe it is nicer than nothing, but really it isn't going to matter. Our raid heals are "Holy Light, which isn't going to make a bubble that matters much at all, divine radiance (see article over how bad that is with our mastery) and "pop a 3 minute CD and watch our buddy emulate 4 heals."Those bubbles are not going to help much at all for raid healing.
