My feeling about LtC vs. HoH since Rohan is that the Improved Valiant Strike puts HoH massively ahead.
Previously, LtC and HoH got close to equal (though HoH always healed more, it's just that LtC healed almost as much with much more DPS) because LtC was generating so many more defeat events for Rallying Cry. RC still has the bigger initial heal of the two skills, but VS always had a bigger HoT. The real difference was the cooldown. RC has a 15 or 6 second cooldown, VS used to have a 1:30 cooldown in HoH.
This is where the improved version comes in. Before, if you used VS every time, you could maintain only a ~33% "duty cycle" on the HoT. With the improved version, you can maintain a 50% duty cycle. Or, if you have Hytbold Healer armour and expect to have at least one defeat event per 30 seconds (not unreasonable at all), you can have an almost 100% duty cycle on the VS HoT. 300 Morale per second, every second, is nothing to sneeze at.
Keep in mind, too, that HoH is by far going to put out more single-target healing as well. HoH Words of Courage has close to a 1k initial heal. And also keep in mind that the defeat events you do get will pump out a stronger version of Rallying Cry.
For Inferno, until everybody is fully geared, I'd definitely trait HoH and not think twice about it. It's not a DPS race, and you do need that extra healing at the end.
For just about everything else, though, LtC is at least as good, if not a little better.
