I have some badges to spend.

Which would be better choice? I was leaning towards the Tears of Heaven, but most have told me Voodoo Shaker

Tears of Heaven

Voodoo Shaker

Aran's Soothing Sapphire

Or stick with... Lower City Prayer Book?

The Prayer Book is a trinket.

I'd probably grab the Voodoo Shaker. The Stamina and Intellect are pretty decent for an offhand, and the spirit would tack up to a about 5 MP5, I think.

It's less +healing than the Tears of Heaven, true, but, imo, the stamina and intellect are a good trade off.

Within the FSR, it generates about 2mp5, outside the FSR it's about 5.56

cool, that's what i was looking for, i think that i was relying too much on +heal

Are you sure? I was going by this (

Seemed reliable to me.

I have tested that and (assuming you have skilled Intensity) 20 spirit give 4 mp5 within the FSR. 25 spirit give 5 mp5.

So it seems as rule of thumb you can take 1 mp5 for every 5 spirit within the FSR, 3 mp5 for every 5 spirit outside of it.

If you dont need the stamina i would go for aran's offhand.
it gives you 2 more INT and 3 more mp5 while casting at the cost of 4 +heal.
So for the pure healing effect and mana-management i would say aran's.
if you lack in STAM its the voodoo shaker.

I'd go for the Voodoo Shaker.

Just a little math here again ^^.

For a 6 minute duration (all of which is within the FSR):
Aran's Soothing Sapphire: 8 mp5
8 mp5 regenerate 576 mana.
No extra mana gained from Innervate.

Voodoo Shaker: 25 sprit
25 spirit (with Intensity and Living Spirit) give 5 mp5 which amounts to 360 mana.
25 spirit with Innervate give 300 mana (15 mp5 * 5 for 20 seconds)

So for a 6 minute cycle 8 mp5 give 576 mana and 25 spirit give 660 mana.
And this assumes that you are inside the FSR all the time. Spirit gets better with every second you are outside it.

Guess, I have to go over my math again.....get back to you guys later >.>

*Edit: Grr...did my math per tick instead of mp5 *sigh*
