DEevolution of healing is here, at 80 u can heal most targets to full using about 1k mana, now 5lvls later 10k mana for 30k hp on a 110k tank, goodbye raid healers, chain heal does 6k to target >4>2>1, when people are 100k+ thats not alot, and why do i have +5k to healing spells and my spells still hit what the tooltip says? doesnt +SP tack on 5k to the tooltip?, 64k mana 1.2k per healing wave, 4 sec cast, only heals for 5k, mobs hit for 20ks, and people tell us to manage our mana, i want to know how to manage my mana when tank pulls and everyone unloads on differant mobs and everyone takes 3/4's of thier HP and expect me to heal them all at once and still have mana left over for the rest of the pull.

with 60k mana this is what i have to work with, and mind you spirt only works wile not casting, so look out mana regen! cuz theres close to nothing

healing wave = 2500 mana ,3 second cast heals for 5-7k crits for 10k
chain heal = 4686 mana ,3 second cast heals, heals for 6>4>2>1
greater healing wave = 7500 mana ,3 second cast heals for 20-30k (crits)
riptied = 2343 mana, instant heal for 7k, another 7k over 15 seconds
earth sheild = 4535 mana, heals about 10k per charge
unleash wep(earthliving) = 1640 mana, heals for 1.5-3k
healing rain = 10777 mana, 2 second cast, 10 sec CD heals for 2k per 2 sec for 10 sec
healing surge = 6326 mana,2 second cast, heals for 7-12k
drop totems = 8434 mana

And yet my guild is flooded with healers atm, we have too many prospective resto shaman and will probably end up sitting one of them. For all the QQ, other than FotMers who thought healing was an easy way to spam up meters most of the people who enjoy the teamwork aspect are sticking with it.

Nobody takes 50k damage per second, because encounters simply aren't designed that way. As for the avoidable effects, you won't be able to heal through poor awareness. It's that simple.

you can't heal through fail. I've yet to see any encounter require more than 7khps to finish successfully. this includes heroics. (with exception to SFK first boss) Hell, some are under 5k hps..

Try keeping ES on the tank, then use riptide, healing wave x2 as your rotation. Your mana pool should stay up. I am finishing up gearing in normal dungeons, so I cannot speak from experience if this is best practice in heroics.

It's not back to vanilla - vanilla healing was fun.


Cancel healing was not fun, only shaman really had big mana issues IIRC.

They've attempted to provide depth to the healing role (needed), while reducing it's power greatly.

Hopefully they get the numbers right, I'm certain there is quite a bit of balancing they will soon intend to do.

Especially since they're getting tons more data then the beta provided.

no but when there is party wide 10k dps (do the uldum dungeon in the phase with the bird that steals souls) its either heal the raid with a 3sec cast for less then the aoe damage itself or use fast ineffeicent heals just to live.

When you know its coming, Prayer of healing isn't your only tool to heal. Holy word, renew, CoH, PoM, and PoH and even lol lightwell. Seriously, if you know its coming just drop holy word, renew everyone, use lightwell for yourself and just heal your ass off. You can't just rely on one spell as a priest.
