So recently I've been thinking about how I want to change my specc a bit soon.
Currently I'm specced like this:
Now, once I get my T11-4pc (which I still don't have because those shoulders just don't want to drop >_>), I decided I would specc out of Veiled Shadows, but then I started thinking about all the other talent points I spend, and even currently can't really take advantage of.
The whole thing starts with Inspiration. A talent that revolves around tankheal and crit in a specc that can't really take advantage of crit and is probably the worst tank heal there is atm. But I can't really specc out of it, and it's at least somewhat beneficial.
Then, there is Tome of Light. Considering Serenity is our best Holy Word, but I'm always in Sanctuary anyways, I guess I could drop this talent easily. Especially because there usually isn't really a reason to use HW: Sanctuary anyways.
That's why I came to the next conclusion: Revelations is useless. HW: Sanctuary just isn't a good spell by any means. It can improve your HPS, ofc, but it just doesn't do too much (except sparkle), so it probably wouldn't be missed.
So in total, I have 7 talent points free now, but where to spend them? 1 ofc is going to max out Mental Agility. Leaves 6 - that I can't really spend in any "good" talents, can I? I mean rapid renewal wouldn't be too bad for sure, but Spirit of Redemption, a skill that is ONLY good in a bad situation (either you're helplessly oom - which as holy I find is not that big of an issue really, because you regen rather fast from spirit anyways, and by the time you are that oom, the boss should be near dead anyways - OR - you simply just died from some mechanic you shouldn't die to). Also SoR has the issue of being immobile, so often you'd find yourself in a situation where you just couldn't make any use of it anyways. State of Mind is right now, completely useless. There's no reason to spend points in it, because you shouldn't be switching Chakra that often anyways, especially considering Sanctuary is the stronger Chakra on pretty much any enounter there is. This leaves me with... Blessed Resilience, which seems to me like an okay talent. Nothing too grand, but I can certainly use it for PvE, as most enounters do have AoE skills, most of which can hit for 10% of your health easily (unless AoE abilities don't procc it).
But that's just 3 points, that I put into situational talents, and still 3 left, that I can't really put into anything that would just be a straight "good" talent - why is that?
