As far as PvE Mistweaver ranged healing goes (not melee healing), which is considered to be better of the two talents and why?
Power Strikes: Every 20 sec, you gain Power Strikes, causing your next Jab, Soothing Mist, or Crackling Jade Lightning to generate 1 additional Chi.
Ascension: Increases your maximum Chi by 1, your maximum mana by 15%, and your energy regen by 15%.
While PS gives more Chi for casting more spells and thus creating more Mana Tea charges, Ascension directly gives more mana and causes each Mana Tea stack to return more mana due to the bigger mana pool.
