I just want to mention that the use of ‘stat weights’ instead of ‘stat priority’ can cause some confusion. A lot of guys come looking for weights to put into their addon (Pawn), and I don’t think ‘weights’ describe the conversation you two are having.
If you chain heal, then crit seems to be rather important. Sure you don’t neglect mastery, but I’ve seen a lot of intellect > crit > mastery builds for people that focus on chain heal. Personally, I think the initial focus on crit allowed people to spam chain heal (in the first few weeks). Obviously, they want some basic mastery too. The lack of total available stats hurts us here, and as we move towards the 880-890 gear (I think) we’ll be more comfortable.
