    Default Chloro Raid Healing - A few questions

    Hey all, im just after some advice to a handful of questions i have in regards to raid healing as a Chloromancer.

    Ive tried searching through the forums, but either the questions i have, i haven seen an answer for, or have seen contradicting answers on.

    1. Ive been running Chlor/Lock/Ele 51/10/5 to now, but im told that i should look into Chloro/Lock/Archon 36/30/0 as its better in both dmg and raid healing output, both consistent and spike, any advice on which to use (im able to have both specs in my setup, just after which would be more beneficial)

    2. My current Healing trinket that i use is 'Lost Favor', which is basically a flat 75sp boost for the entire fight. Should i look into getting 'Sacred Heirloom of Eth' - Chance to heal 3 allies for 600-700 instead?

    3. In my current Healing Sigil, im using Crystal Vine (750 HoT/8secs) and Frozen Deep One Tear (564 Shield). Ive picked up Hailstone Tideshard (686 Shield) as well. Do the shielding essences stack, and if so, should i be using double shielding essences instead of the HoT essence? (ive seen conflicting info on this one).

    Many thanks in advance to any help ppl are able to provide.

    51 chloro is best for tank healing (lifebound veil). 36 chloro/30 lock is best for strictly AoE healing, and being unable to change in the middle of a fight. 36/30 will do about 10% more HPS and about 20% more DPS for AoE healing.

    Lost Favor is better than the Heirloom for raids. For 5 mans, Heirloom can SOMETIMES be better, but you usually can't even get it to bounce to the tank, so Lost Favor is usually going to be best.

    Yes, they stack. Frozen Deep One Tear and Hailstone Tideshard is the best combination.

    Healing-wise, the hybrid build will be able to output more numbers. However, in exchange, you sacrifice your ability to support the tank in cases of emergency. Which spec is best really depends on your teammates and how reliable they are. In many cases when I've raided, one of our two cleric healers have a tendency to bite the dust close to the end of a fight. So I enjoy the ability to switch over to Lifebound and resign myself to an inevitable death.

    I personally prefer Lost Favor. I dislike SHoE for a couple of reasons. 1) It's positioning based and often times I'm not placed somewhere where it can be taken advantage of. 2) It's healing may not be useful where at Lost Favor at least adds DPS. 3) It will always heal a non-combat pet if you have one out, and I almost always do.

    Hailstone Tideshard and Frozen Deep One Tear stack, and they're a wonderful combination. I upgraded from what you had to what you're debating about.

    Have 2 roles... one 51/10/5 chloro / lock / ele or 51 / 15 / 0 chloro / lock / archon for tank healing and a 36 / 30 chlorolock for support healing. That's what do and I chose my role depending on situation.
