the powerful heals this article talk about is only 13k health. when you have over a 100k health, and only 25 to 30k mana on a enhance shaman, the heals are useless...since you have to take a beating up close, while your trying to get off those 3 to 5 heals, which do no good, since there almost beaten out of you while you heal. shamans use to be able to take over for the healer if they went down, now, shaman heals on a enhance are not worth the mana and time it takes to cast them. here is fact from my shaman and stats: 1.4 sec cast for 8300 health at a cost of 6326 mana. wow, i can get a whole 5 of them off, which would heal me for little over 32k. at that point, out of mana, health still low, and i die.
gift of the naaru, great heal, but once again. over 15 sec??? dead again.
healing rain. wonderful for a group. not good by your self, takes 1.87 sec cast, for 1054 health every 1.87 sec over 10 sec, at a mana cost of 10777. wow, i can get two, maybe 3 of them off...once again, dead. can someone tell me how heals on enhance would be more helpful. even if i didnt run out of mana, the heals are only about as strong as the hits i take.
