But the truth of the matter is that we do. Sure we're nuke healers--we always *have* been. But our beacon only transfers 50 percent of the healing over and our aoe heals are pretty much complete crap.
We're still going oom just as often as other healers (this is intended for those who are doing heroics before being heroically geared, just as a quick fyi). You have aoe heals that heal everyone. We don't, so our holy light is basically the only way we can get people up. And it heals for the same amount as nourish (according to my resto druid buddy).
I'm so sick and tired of people saying "Pallies got the better healing stick" because it's simply not true.
If you've healed with a pally, you know how much has changed with watching procs and stacking holy power.
All I have to say to the other healing classes out there: Stop blaming the pallies and start respeccing and experimenting and using all your cooldowns and consumables until you figure out one that gives you better regen.
Start playing smart and stop qqing about pallies. We have it just as rough but you don't see us complaining as much as the rest of you because we've always had the harder healing job with no good aoe spells in our arsenal and adapt a little more quickly.
