End Game Healing Maces - Which is the Best?

Today I will be taking a look at two of the best current end game healing maces, namely Archon's Gavel and the Crystal Spire of Karabor. Both of these weapons have amazing stats, but are focused in different areas of healing.

The Crystal Spire of Karabor has an insane healing ability, addint between 180 to 220+ healing to your spells if your terget is below 50% health. However many more healers are swinging towards the new Sunwell Platau Raid in patch 2.4 to pick up Archin's Gavel. While it doesnt have the burst of healing below 50% it does have much higher standard + healing, great for keeping a raid topped up, as well as having a good amount 11 Mp5 anda socket for whatever you may desire.

The choice is a difficult one for Priest and Paladins, although Druids would nearly always go for Archon's Gavel. The choice mainly rests on how you play, main tank healers could find the + healing below 50% an invaluable bonus when the tank is taking heavy damage, likewise raid healers who rarely see below 50% health may find the mana regen and constant plus healing of Archons Gavel a great boost to their raid healing skill. If your groups are hardly seeing below 50% health, then The Crystal Spire of Karabor is infact only a minor upgrade over maces like the Light's Justice from Karazhan, especially for Holy Priests where spirit is such a bonus.

So which would you choose?
