The (original) cast time for flash heal is 1.5seconds. The (original) cast time for greater heal is 2.5seconds. I say original meaning before your haste rating. Those use to be the two main(non-aoe) heals of priests. Now blizz wants us to start using "Heal" again, which is fine. The only problem i have with it is that the cast time is the same as greater heal. Now i realize if you lower it too much then it become another mana cheap flash heal. But if you took the cast time of heal from 2.5seconds down to 2.0 seconds then it would be a lot more effective for healers and it would make sense.
Flash Heal- 1.5 Seconds
Heal- 2 Seconds
Greater Heal- 2.5 Seconds
It just seems to make sense to me. Also the tanks are taking a HUGE amount of damage at a time so by time i can even get one heal off the tank is down under 50% and if i start trying to cast a second heal instead of a flash heal or great heal the tank dies but then if i start using flash heal or greater heal i go OOM almost instantly.
I dont want to waste time turning this into a petition because that just gets annoying to blues and i dont think they ever work anyway, however if some one could read this and take it into serious consideration i would greatly appreciate it.
