Usefull for rank but it should be hard to convince your raidlead to wait you one minute before each pull to cast your 8 flash of light by managing your mana !

I'm not asking how to track the buff when it procced. Asking how someone can claim it is easier to track than Spark, when there are no buffs to count or ICD to react to.

That is my Weak Aura (I use WA2 now so some people with WA1 might not get it to work) And I can track exactly how and when to use ES with the Feather stacking. It's not an issue to use it on pull what so ever. Also there is a buff it's a stacking STR proc I use another WA to track current AP and as it builds up with each stack of Feather the current AP scales accordingly as well. When feather is at 9 stacks I make sure I have an open GCD so I can hit ES once Feather hits 10 stacks a second later. Not it's not always perfect but it does work and it's show to give better results then spark even with the stacking buff you get. You just have to know how to track the stacks of Feather which my WA does perfectly.
I'd like to make a simple progress bar (out of combat) that shows the 30 second duration you have while staying at 5 holy power, or until your holy power is diminished by 1. I think it requires a custom trigger that monitors the duration of a status??? Please help - Thanks!
There is, at least in clcinfo r296 and 297:
Otherwise I kindly ask you to read the last 3 posts where I tried to explain to 5 different people now that I know how to track the Feather buff once it procs, but I am saying you can't know when it will proc vs. Spark (since it stacks a charge of Zandalari, 2 stacks, 3 stacks and you know when it will hit 10 and proc - meaning if you have ES off cd, you have 8 stacks you can wait 10 seconds and fire off ES with your Spark, you can't predict when Feather will start stacking, you feel me?). Is it so hard to understand?
As for understanding I've understood everything you have said in "theory" spark should be better but in practice Feather blows it out of the water even after the changes. Why wait for Spark when it can not remotely match the AP stack I can and do get with feather combined with another trinket when both of my current trinkets line up together far better then feather+spark ever did. Do you or can you atleast understand that?

What to use with Thok's trinket? HC Feather or normal Skeer's?
I think it's easier to use ES with Feather because it procs more reliably during times you might need it. Spark has crappy timing and sometimes can stack very slowly. It's also more Strength. I'm not sure your argument makes a lot of sense. Yeah, you can see the Spark proc WAY ahead of time and it gives you a longer time to get it right, but with practice lining up your ES with Feather proc is pretty easy. Especially, if you have a good weak aura to show it proc and it counting up to 10. I have absolutely no issue with using it like this. I don't ever have to delay ES very long since the change in 5.4 for Feather. It procs quite frequently. Feather also will proc off the pull being able to use it with your CD, prepot, etc. Spark is always delayed.
To me, it's personal preference. You can keep trying to shove it down people's throats though. Just don't get it twisted for new folks. The proc on the Feather IS better.
A counter on the number of stacks you have for spark doesn't mean you can predict when you'll get that last stack any better than you can predict when feather will proc. I don't want to get in another argument about the trinkets, but your logic there is lacking as to why one is easier to use for ES than another (since random is random, and there's absolutely nothing you can do about it for either one).
