It looks like we won't need critical heals to trigger the health increase:"Ancestral Healing now also causes the shaman's heals to increase the target's maximum health ... does not apply to heals from procs."My question is exactly which heals will apply the effect? Will ticks of riptide to it? It would be too simple if healing stream totem applied it so I'll assume it won't. What about bounces of chain heal? Currently, I think of shaman as stronger tank healers and weaker group healers (when the group isn't stacked) than most healers. This change seems like it will cement the idea that you want the resto shaman in your raid healing your tank.

Haven't played with the PTR yet, but it doesn't grant 10% extra health flat out, that's the ability's cap, although since unlike the rest of the talent it doesn't seem to require a crit one would think it'd be fairly easy to reach that cap and hold it (for tanks anyway), unless it only counts heals in the last (time period) only.
