This is an interesting point. I haven't tried re-gearing my Sage healer for no alacrity so I can't comment on it's effectiveness in ops. Currently in my 61 gear (haven't done HM TfB yet) I have about 9% cast time increase from alacrity with the rest in crit/surge. I modeled my gear targets based on the 1.3 BiS for a dps telekinetic sage with a few changes based on personal preference. This has done very well for me as an end-game healer.

On the other hand, I've been leveling a Sorcerer healer in my spare time (currently at level 47) and my skill tree is almost complete. Because mix/maxing prior to 50 is sort of pointless, I have no alarity on this toon at the moment. I have to say that the longer cast times really get on my nerves.

I suppose this is just a case of what I'm used to, but when I do reach 50 I plan on adding alacrity for my sorc healer to match what I have on my sage healer.

P.S. Off topic, sorry, but I deparately miss the 30m stun when fighting elite mobs 3 levels higher than me ...
