Any idea how pvp power will be different from spell power for healers?

In a sense, they're the same while in PVP situations; both increase the power of your heals, but PVP Power would be free on gear. (Takes up no itemization points.) Outside of PVP, however, like in raids, PVP Power isn't helpful at all, so you have to use spellpower.

It will only affect your healing on players during PvP situations. So, PvP power will not help you heal more in a dungeon or raid.Wondering, then, why this stat is useful if it only works in PvP while Spell Power works everywhere? Well, it's not included in the stat budget. So, while a PvP piece might have a tiny bit less "spell power" than a PvE piece...it ALSO has a good amount of completely free "PvP Power."So, a PvP healing piece will heal for slightly less than a PvE piece if you use it in a raid. But when you use it in an arena, it will heal for much more than the PvE piece because of all that extra PvP Power.

It does raise an interesting question. When does pvp power for healing kick in? When you are in a BG or arena only, making you gimped for world pvp? When your target is pvp flagged, regardless if they are attacking a player or NPC? Only when your target is actually in combat with an enemy player?
