I dont remember liking Funnel Essence on my AM either. though that may just be due to how often my AM was put int he position of literally just an AoE Heal Spambot with furious usage of Cleansing Light.

Insta Dead in SC's though ;p

Why would you not use the best single target / panic healing tool you have access to?

Edit: I have no idea what kind of playstyle you do based on your mastery points, you favor points in the DPS tree instead of points in the right tree to scale your bubble and damage based HoT. You also again prioritize those points over m4 and funnel essence. It just sounds like a really bad playstyle.

I just can't fathom why any heal spec AM would ever in a million years decide that a single mastery point in asuryan tree will somehow be more beneficial than funnel essence. Let alone why asuryan and not vaul?

Funnel Essence is awesome for heal burst and reactive healing and there is zero reason not to take it for a heal am. Wild healing is OP and has basically 100% uptime which means you never run out of ap.

I use Magical Infusion as a panic heal. On live I tried FE in T4 and I had 2 problems with it:
a) It was very AP heavy, and the way I play (constant spam esp HoTs) I just drained out the last AP's I had withouth even finishing the 3s channel.
b) Even when I had the AP it wasn't enough too keep someone alive, at leasy not the way I used it (Maybe I'm just doing it wrong?)

The big advantage MI has over FE is that MI is cast on the run and is an instant that with Desperation gives you crazy amounts of HP, ofc the obvious drawback is the CD but it just works for me.

As I said, FE is good, I just don't liek to use it that's why I wrote the extra info in the OP.

Yea I agree esp in T4 when you have even more healcrit.
But for now I'm using Restorative Burst and I have enough AP.
I'm prob gona respec Wild Healing just to see the difference.

Why should I pick a spell I know I will end up not using? Points in Asuryan are there not for #demcrazydeeps but solely because of Cleansing Flare.

If I could I would put more points in Isha. But I can't. Cuz it's maxed out.

Aisha so pro they renamed a tree just for her. :P

And Min >>> most of people posting in this thread (regarding heal AM). Maybe her spec does not work for you but it does for her.

Maybe she should have posted the cookie-cutter specs to begin with.

bloostering boon is not core tactic but it is usefull at certain situation and why not pick it instead putting one point somewhere else

Well, I believe the level 40 build is pretty standard? Minus the lack of FE which started the whole thing? ^^
Full Isha spec, Wild Healing is on there too... As to Solar Flare/Storm of Cronos those are both used as far as I know.

But yea I messed up a bit, will be clearer next time I hope!
