    Default Chloro raid healing question with 4 piece raid crystal

    What's more important, keeping vile spores and its DoT up, or getting the 3rd stack of the crystal? I'm having a little bit of a hard time keeping withering vines and vile spores, and using NT, ruin and corrosive spores on cooldown AND using void life enough to keep the buff... and forget about radiant spores!

    Buy the harbinger raid crystal. It offers 200sp (assuming you have a weapon buff in your spec) instead of 225, but gives 100% uptime. Unless you are tank healing, dont use the chloro crystal. Sure losing chloro 2 piece is lame, but its kinda negligible.

    The dot from vile spores only gives a heal on it's first tick, see log below.

    Pretty much this. A 200 HOT tick on Bloom? lol. Losing your flexibility to keep up the Chloro crystal is stupid when you can have 100% uptime with the Harbinger crystal.

    Agreed, harb crystal is the easy choice.

    They should change it to void life and vile spores. Thus it would work for tank healing and raid healing, accept that'd put the bonus too low in the tree probably.

    Must keep thinking...

    I am not so sure using ruin on cool down ("cd") is a great idea for raid healing (although I use it for tank healing). Personally, I find using corrosive spores on cd and spamming vile spores more effective. I also keep NT handy for burst healing (situationally when I know big damage is incoming or after/during a movement). I rarely put up withering vines on boss fights unless I am bored and everyone is mostly topped off.

    Just my thoughts from the Dark Side!!!

    It should proc off of Vile Spores. After all, the harbinger one gives its 4pc buff off a 0 point passive.

    You have a very good point.
