in my raid, there is an Elemental Shaman who uses his Healing Tide Totem to support us Healers.
I wondered, if using Ancestral Guidance while doing Damage wouldn't be a greater benefit.
Heres what i calculated:
Spellpower: 21.000, DPS about 54.000
Healing Tide Totem
4932 + 10.164 (48,4% of 21.000) = 15.096 x 5 People x 6 Ticks (according to Hastetables) = 452.880 Total Heal
54.000 DPS x 40% = 21.600 x 10 sec x 3 People = 648.000 Total Heal
If this Calculation is right, you just need to make about 38.000 DPS to be more effective using Ancestral Guidance over the Healing Tide Totem.
Edit: Not to forget the shorter Cooldown
Edit 2: And he could use Ascendeance
Now you are alowed to rip my poor math appart. ;-)
