    Default 2 Greaters or ALL Epic Lessers?

    For chloro which would be more beneficial? Doing the 2 epic greaters, which are frozen deep one tear and crystal vine? Or 2 more epic lessers?

    Not speaking with any authority, but all the chloros that I've seen heal in my guild use two greaters, I believe they are the ones you mentioned, not 100% sure though, and Im talking about both a PvP & PvE perspective.

    Greaters are better for healing.

    thats what I thought, even though it is depressing losing out on 400 mana from the epic lessers and not having 10k mana

    What's more depressing is not having a hot + bubble proc on someone every time corrorion ticks.

    First off.. i dont play a chloro but i do play a cleric (primarily raid healing)
    TBH i think pure stats are better for any class as they benefit you all the time in all occasions.

    Now that said... if you have some realllly nice greaters (raid rift greaters), then by all means...

    Also... if you can afford to build multiple source machines then by all means have several as thats your best option since you can plug and play depending on the situation.

    I have:

    1: A pure stats (all crit lessers) source machine
    2: A pure stats (all SP lessers) source machine
    3: A source machine with all spell power lessers, the hailstone shielding greater from a raid rift, and the 50 inscribed greater from the planar vendor that increases my shielding (in purifier).
    4: Currently building a Water resist source machine

    They do. Running the two shields is better than using crystal vine, if you can get your hands on the shield from the water raid rift.

    Crystal Vines is very nice for solo and small groups, but is pretty lack luster for raids. I still keep mine because it's fun to see it ticking away and I feel I should be using them. However, the last time I checked it on a Greenscale kill, it did about 5000 healing during the whole fight. Much of that has to do with the nature of HoTs becoming mostly over-heal in raid fights where there is a ton of group healing constantly topping everyone off. I'm pretty sure the newly buffed lesser essences will perform better.

    Crystal Vine is much needed for Chloromancers who suffer from a lack of reliable HoTs. Except Corrosion and Withering Vine, which are entirely gimmicky, we have none. CV helps us cover a bit of that shortcoming, even more since Life Veils proc AoE healing. Perhaps they aren't needed as much for Clerics (their heals are hax enough without that stuff in the first place ;-; )

    Shield greaters are needed on every healing class, IMO. Raising the effective Health of a player is always efficient whether it's in Raids or PvP.
