So there has been a lot of people that are concerned about the nerf to the amount of healing that is provided by the Tier 2 healing talents (Chi Wave, Chi Burst, and Zen Sphere). However, something that I haven't seen people talking about is Healing Sphere. Healing Sphere now costs 40 energy, down from 60 and the base healing was increased by 20%. With Ascension I can pretty much spam Healing Sphere until I'm healed up and it seems to be doing a decent amount of healing per sphere. I haven't had time to solo anything yet to see how useful it really is but it's looking pretty strong compared to our Tier 2 talents from the little bit I've played around with it. Has anyone else had a chance to test this out further? Is it a viable alternative?
