said by Archivis:Arch is correct on the double ticks. i have done this and going with the int, spirit gear and staying in heals mode. i can heal any instance so far and be2nd or 3rd in dps really easy with doing the only heals.
Discovered a bug with the channeled healing stream. You can get double ticks per channel if you spam the healing stream. Even though it is channeled, it triggers a GCD. If you can spam the heal every time the GCD is up, you get double heals every tick.
Been using it to make myself invulnerable in PVP. At the lower levels, CC is hard to come by, so it's just spamming channeled heals all day long, staying at 100% mana and laughing as 3 players can't burst you down all day.
I've also found that mistweave DPS is pretty good as well in dungeons. I'm sure it'll suck later on. Stack int/spirit gear. It converts Spirit into hit/expertise and int into spellpower which converts into attack power. Jab x4, Blackout Kick x2, repeat. No energy to manage. Never go oom. Heals the party like mad. I've been topping DPS and healing meters simultaneously in most of my runs. Because of this, leveling as mistweave spec is better for me than leveling as a DPS or tank spec. Same or better damage with a massive amount of self/party heal through your damage.
