    Default New 50 mage, a few Q's on Healing.

    1) So I read the stickied guide, and it claimed a need for 51 points in chloro but didn't explain why. I would assume it would naturally be with the 51 point talents, but why are they needed...

    2) this is the spec I'm using atm. Warlock/Chloro/Pyro 10/48/8. Warlock for charge and opportunity, Pyro mostly for burning fury, but Glyphs of power and fast cast is also nice. http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1z...EdIuqAckRR.x0c

    3) Withering Vine, is it needed? I generally don't use it, even on bosses. I pretty much make do off of Natures Touch, Ruin, and Vile Spores for indirect heals. Natures Fury gets use with small AoE, and splendor is used in large AoE.

    You get Void life from 51 chloro. So you should spam that and use Nature's touch when opportunity procs :P

    because if you want to tank heal, void life is the only way to do it.

    Void Life procs extra healing for LBV (Life Bound Veil) on your Synthesis target (the tank).

    I only really use Natural Healing on opp procs when Bloom is on CD, but there have been a couple times when the tank was fine but a dps stood in the stupid a little too long and I could afford the 2.5s cast time (which is really long, should be 1.5s max, imo).

    If you're off healing 36/30 chlorolock is a good choice. And I like chlorodom for PvP and open world solo and group running (not the best solo spec by any means, but I have a lot of fun running it).

    Void Life Void Life Void Life Void Life.

    Natural Splendor is not really a large AoE, it's a nuke heal on cooldown that eats charge and has situational uses.

    When I see people cast Withering Vines in PvE, an angel puppy loses its wings and dies alone and unloved.

    Only once you realize this can you find the secret macro chloros use to heal like crazy.

    51 Chloro is the only way to go if you want to play raid healer. It's horrible in PVP though. As for your spec, I'm not sure I'm a big fan of it..but if you like it that's all that counts.

    Yeah you want the 51 for void life because that's long heal to the Max. I use a chloro/ Pyro build and LOVE it. Get all the healing buffs but you also get glyphs of power for increased damage which= increased damage plus the mana regen increase So I never run out of mana. Oh you also get flicker which is amazing for healers with all the boss stuns/silences

    1) bind every key to void life
    2) put synth on tank
    3) roll your face on your keyboard
    4) you're now a main tank healer approved by chuck norris

    Technically, I play with 4 buttons:
    Nature's Touch
    Void Life
    Bloom
    Flourish

    But that's advanced Chloro play, there!
