On my last Feng the Accursed kill, I gained 50820 mana from price of progress over a 7:30 min. encounter which meant this trinket was giving me 564,6 mp5. On my last Elegon kill I gained 60984 mana on a 9:37 min. encounter which should be 528,5 mp5.
Empty Fruit Barrel has a passive 847 spirit. Since 1 spirit = 0,56435 mp5 (according to Icy Veins), then Empty Fruit Barrel should provide you with 478 mp5.
As you can see, despite the difference in mp5 from both encounters this proc from Price of Progress should result in a greater mana regen than the passive spirit from Empty Fruit Barrel. However, several sources claim that the ICD on the Empty Fruit Barrel is of a mere 20 secs, I have personally tested this and it seemed to be true, which should make the Barrel a better throughput trinket.
The only reason why I don't use this trinket is because I don't like random throughput boost procs as a healer since they might proc in phases where you aren't healing much and thus it feels like the proc is going to waste.
Is the shadopan trinket worth buying? I'll be revered this week. I don't have enough gold to buy the DMC, so I most likely won't have that one
I plan on revamping the gear lists fairly soon to reflect that of BIS lists as I would imagine most Mistweavers should be 90 and already diving into raids!
War-Z testing this week so I'm gonna be quite busy but I promise to get it up as soon as possible.

Is anyone using Chi Torpedo in raids? Or is it better to use Rushing Jade Wind to buff your SCK? I'm only just starting raiding with poor gear still, I prefer not to use SCK much since it drains my mana so quickly. The torpedo feels fun and nice to use, free of mana. I'm using Celerity and when raid is bunched up i sometime just do three torpedo-rolls through the raid back and forth. Or is is my time better spent doing something else?
Can you comfortably use SCK to heal without running out of too much mana?
Why are you stacking, are you able to use Chi torpedo without dying?
Is mobility required?
Personally for AoE healing I prefer RJW as Chi torpedo is alot of unnecessary movement to heal. Being a Australian player I have noticed a slight lag can make my roll 20 yards longer than it should be which can be rather risky in PvE.

It's absolutely not worth sacrificing mobility for the incredibly sub par healing Chi Torpedo does.
Yeah, there are times where I've found torpedo useful. On Elegon it was nice to torpedo in and out from the boss.
Another thing that I noticed last night was that my dps is far worse than I thought it'd be. I'm really hoping it's because my gear still sucks. Both me and my raid leader thought, cool.. we could use the monk dps and healing. But in the end my healing was great and dps hardly noticable. Our discpriest (albeit with better gear) was doing far far far better dps than me. Autoattack, jab and blackout kick.. all felt really weak.
It's working as intended or will it get better, at least on par with a discpriest or better?
Chi Torpedo is mana-free healing. I'm not clear on why people think it's bad.
Well, there are lots of reasons to move. Feng in particular I was glad to have Chi Torpedo, as I'd sit in with the melee and then flit out and back, healing both ways. My experience also has been that it's an uncapped aoe heal, which may or may not be accurate, but if it is then the total healing could be quite substantial.
Sure, flinging your ass over to the middle of nowhere may not be tactically sound, but pairing it with another return trip means that you don't give up a whole lot of time. As with pretty much everything monk, knowing what's going on around you is key to the class. Your friends, the boss, positioning, everything. What I like best about monk healing is that I am paying attention to the raid, not just the raidframes.

I just had a few tips I'd like to share.
1. Use expel harm on CD, very cheap free chi
2. Use diffuse magic. In MV there are more big explosions you could mitigate that just some passive healing. This can be changed dependant on the fight but I feel too many monks pick elixirs then don't change it.
3. Use Xuen on fights with DPS checks, I know most already do this but again some people just pick RJW then don't swap it.
4. Tiger's Lust > All. This talent is amazing, it gets you farther than an extra charge of roll while being an external too. Great for putting on melee on Elegon when they have to reset stacks. (Downside 1 chi cost)
5. Hopefully most are doing this but on Gara'jal glyph uplift, most fun fight in there. When in spirit realm, use ReM then spam uplift, easy topping everyone off while keeping the buff high.
6. USE EXPEL HARM ON CD. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. Free chi dammit!
Hope this helps
Hey affinity, was just watching Blood Legions Emperor kill, was wondering what you were using as your chi dumper. I think its uplift but was just wanted to make sure, only saw a few EvM so I'm pretty sure it was uplift.
