Aye the Focus is Nice but if your a cleric find something else you get a better focus from your Anguish BP. Recommended for DRU, SHM, PAL For a priority. Most Clerics worth thier weight should be able to crit quick heal around 19k. Druids need it due to their crippled CH's their Quick heals are more mana effecient, and Shaman are frequently on offtank heals, Paladins are always grp healing and this works for that. Then again I expect people getting to this place should understand this by Uqua... If you missed GoD well the pre-dragons, and some OoW Mobs should warm you up. Remember as usuall these focus effects only work on Instant Quick heals not Complete Ones.

These are useful for any of the classes listed. I crit CH for 19100. AHL crit with 50% so far is about 14k, highest crit with PR is just over 7k. With CH group you can get 32K crits. I have been waiting for these for a while and I just got them. The mask from Secondborn has a 60% Vampiric Health focus which is the best you can get without being DP or ToB flagged.

Basically any class listed will go in on these shoulders if they need a heal focus. They are even useful to BL b/c they sometimes end up healing on events like this when a spirit wraith takes out their healer. This is especially useful for cleric's b/c once in DP you will start replacing your Anguish armor with Fallen Saint armor.

The healing focus for clerics on their Faithbringer armor (anguish gear set) is off of their greaves NOT their bp...the bp reduces the mana cost of AHL by 25% and has a clickable effect that increases the power of their fast heals for 7 ticks with a 5 minute reuse's a situational tool, not something clerics use all the time...the greaves have a 45% healing focus and is the best focus clerics get out of anguish, which is great to have, but all classes that have direct quick heals (paladins rangers shaman druids and clerics) get the exact same focus (Blessing of Anguish) off of their anguish armor set (beastlords dont have a healing focus on their anguish gear set for some reason)...improved healing focuses benefit all healing classes, not one more than the other...also...Ancient: Hollowed Light is only an 11k crit heal non-focused with max healing adept/gift, but is very very inefficient with the mana without the anguish bp (unless you use when GoM fires)...Pious Remedy is the most mana friendly fast heal clerics get and it's only a 5k crit heal unfocused with max healing adept/gift...the best group heal clerics get is Word of Vivication, and that is only a 9k crit heal unfocused with max healing adept/gift

if anything I would think that beastlords would be drooling over this the most because they dont get a healing focus out of their anguish armor unlike the other classes do that are listed on this piece.

while you're right that beastlords don't get a healing focus, you're wrong that beastlords should be drooling over this. There are many better shoulders out there that have +atk, +accuracy, +strikethrough and similar stats. While with DKP loot is a ffa, I'd honestly be very disappointed to lose this piece to a beastlord.

To correct you, clerics have 19k CH's, not quick heals. With anguish BP and ancient heal, they can get in 18k area, but that is not as often as a CH for 19k.

It is better for a class other than a cleric, but again a 19k crit is from CH more than from quick heals.

Awesome focus effect, seems like the dmg/heal increases from these guys are 50%.
