You really enjoy making doom and gloom threads don't you? All this time making threads could maybe be better spent finding how to play your class better and organizing guild runs with good groups. Healing is not broken, merely the way you are playing is.
This. I am enjoying healing. Have I gone OOM? No. Close? Yes. Am I ok with that? You bet. I actually have to use the tools in my priest "toolbox." No matter what class you are, Blizzard has given you tools to get through encounters.
Sometimes you have to power heal thru it, sometimes you need think outside the box
. See what works. This is a new game, and a new healing paradigm. I ran TotT once with Inner Fire up (group: DK tank/Me/Mage/Lock/Warrior) and once with Inner Will up. (Same DK/Me/Mage/Lock/Enh Shaman) I can see the merits to both now.
Research your spec.
My spec isn't the best atm. My glyph choices aren't the best, and spending 20 minutes this morning looking through blogs I am going to change things up a bit. I also learned that I should save my PI for myself. Who knew?
It's exhilarating to save people from near death, and the triage aspect gets me excited. But have people died on my watch? Yup. It's ok, it's gonna happen. Admit when you make the mistake, but realize that chances are it's their fault. For example...TotT last night. A tank who pulled to much. You know what I did? Told the tank to mark a kill order. A mage who couldn't move out of the acid in TotT. You know what I did? I told the DPS to watch where they stood.
They listened, we got it down.
TLDR: Don't crap on healing thats five days old. Adapt. Think outside the box. Experiment. Research. Accept that dumb DPS is gonna die, grow a thicker skin, and tell them what they
need to do to help you
