Okay, you think it's enough, but then why in the hell would you create a legendary utility that heals you while the barrier is up if it can't even stay long enough to heal you for even 2%, redesign this retardism. I say give us instead a sin's ability Deflection. I mean c'mon, sorcs are a butter. For those who will brag L2P, yes, I know things aren't that bad, I can survive and have a somewhat decent PvP, but I really dislike this design.... Thanks for reading and may the force serve you well
I don't think Static Barrier is useless at all. Also, it has a really short cooldown and can be applied to other players - something like that obviously shouldn't be as powerful as Deflection (You do have your god bubble, after all). If a utility isn't working for you, don't try to bend the game to fit your choice of utility; spec into something else.

As a PvE player: I find the healing effects to be minuscule and so choose to spec into something else; when I'm tanking, I find Static Barrier making a good difference; so when I'm healing, I try to refresh the tank's Static Barrier as often as possible. Plus a perk of the Corruption spec means that the player gets healed after Static Barrier ends.
