And then your guild tries Vezax hard mode and your healers who haven't learned the art of conserving mana, overheals like crazy and run oom at 60%
Meh Vezax hard mode, I would probably exlusively be sitting in melee range, and wanding the boss, up until the add came out lol. Holy isn't exactly the most efficient class for most situations, but for AoE healing, we're unmatched. Even with doing 0 healing for first 60%, the priests/druids would probably still top the meter's.

This is why programs like Rawr are preferred to walls of text crits. Rawr is probably about as accurate, as the job role you select for it.
Improper usage of Surge of Light, could easily lead to just as much variation, as 1 priest using a PoM tracker, and 1 who doesn't.
For me, Surge of Light = 95% effective healing, but I also always take 2/2 of the talent.
With 33% raid buffed crit (like 1-2% high for me), thats exactly 1 proc every CoH (excluding RNG fails, which is common lol). Instant and free 5-6k heal > casted anything (i think we proved Instant cast > all, when CoH didn't have a cd lol)
