Healing in WotLK v. Cataclysm

So today I was running a H-Oculus on this character, my disc priest, with a goal:

To only cast Prayer of Healing the entire dungeon.

I figured this would be the most inefficient way to heal a dungeon. I was the only person above 4.5k GS in the dungeon.

I didn't drop below 85% mana the entire dungeon.

I can only hope that in Cataclysm, the promises for more difficult healing and more Vanilla-like strategy for healing will come true!

It's nice sometimes to go on auto-pilot, but playing this game for the challenge, and the feeling of actually controlling a situation through my healing is what is actually fun. Thoughts?

I used to only heal heroics with lifebloom.

I can't do that now though D:

You can't do it in Cata dungeons.

the item level difference between healing wrath heroics in heroics gear and healing wrath heroics in current icc gear is actually pretty similar to the item level difference between decent level 70 gear and entry level wrath heroic gear.

seriously imagine for a moment, healing a BC heroic with a full set of naxx 10 gear and try to convince yourself of a reasonable expectation to be challenged.

I doubt spamming PoH would work in cata.

I'm getting used to healing by bubbling the tank and dpsing with archangel and evangelism, and tossing in a few heals and penances here and there; but even with doing that I rarely ever drop below 95% mana.

I used to run WotLK heroics using nothing but Holy Nova. It's the sort of thing you can do with excessive gear for the content.

I wasn't expecting it to be hard right out of the gate, obviously most people are gear inflated right now as it's the end of an expansion. I'm saying when I hit level 85 after replacing all my gear, I better get a challenge!
