Enchant Weapon - Jade Spirit: Permanently enchants a melee weapon to sometimes increase your Intellect by 1,650 when healing or [b]dealing damage[/b] with spells. If less than 25% of your mana remains when the effect is triggered, your [b]Spirit[/b] will also increase by 750. Requires a level 384 or higher item.Does this suggest Spirit will once again be useful for dps classes? If not then it's just for Discipline and I think Monk Healers I guess.

Spirit will still be useless for DPS (except classes that can be healers for spirit > hit), but I don't see why it wouldn't be useful for all the healing classes. The only reason the Spirit buff is on it is to make it more attractive to healers. Both Windsong and Jade Spirit will be good for healers.

I would imagine it's so that healers who dual-spec into DPS have an enchant that gives them more regeneration for healing. If you're a holy/shadow priest who would prefer Heartsong for the regen, that enchant's very much sub-par for shadow spec, so you currently have the choice of Power Torrent on one weapon for both specs, or putting expensive enchantments on two weapons. I imagine Blizzard has noticed that Heartsong goes for a lot less on the AH and a lot of healers are picking Power Torrent anyway. Windsong currently gives a bonus when your spells deal damage, no mention of healing, but it's very early days yet.
