At least we can also confirm now that the 4-pc won't be slow and clunky as most of us had dreaded. This makes me a happy Fenix.
This tier's bonuses are most definitely better than last tier's, no question.
Ya, if the 4pc looks like Drone Weapons from Stargate, I'll approve. Don't care if it's useful.
Also, with the 4pc, is it per tick of penance or is it per cast? Again, looking to get greedy here.
So, if per cast, an extra 100k healing ever ~20secs if penance is used on cooldown. Or 5000HPS or 10% increase, if you are doing around 50k HPS at the moment.
Actually, factor in the fact that you will have at least 4 pieces of T15 gear, you will likely be much higher than 50k HPS. Let's say average of 80k HPS. So a 6% increase in healing assuming the 100k isn't overheal and again, you are casting Penance on cooldown.
Can't complain too much if they are now buffing Penance as you will likely use it on cooldown to stack grace, atonement heal and proc this smart heal.
It's assuming no overhealing with a hps figure that is so low that it's almost certainly going to fully overheal.
We're easily capable of sustaining 100k effective hps with current gear, and even on those fights the set bonus is going to have non-trivial overhealing. I'd be surprised if it turns out to be more than 3-4% of our effective healing on most fights.
