What are your biggest quality-of-life issues?
AI on our elementals, sometimes they attack, sometimes they don't it can be bothersome to be fighting a boss, look over across the room, and see my ele just standing there.
And more so, Totems, don't get me wrong here, I love my totems, and being resto i do get longer totems, but still, during a moving fight it is extremely rare that the full groups is getting the benefit of the totems. During a healing intensive fight i will let my totems expire just because i need to conserve the mana, on top of that, alot of the totems really dont do anything anymore considering the buffs was streamed-lined, in a 25 man raid there is a very high chance your totem will get overwritten due another classes buff that does the exact same thing. so even though your dropping 4 totems, it feels like im only really dropping 2 or 3 totems, but paying mana for 4 totems.
What makes playing your class more fun?
Chain Heal and healing raid works out well if the timeing is write and watching strings of crits go off and the raid staying full is very fun.
What makes playing your class less fun?
lack of more diverse healing spells/Cooldowns and fights that require intensive tanking healing, my heals are not fast compared to other classes, and on certain fights the tank dies mid cast. the lack of having more than one main healing CD makes me feel limited when compared to the other healing classes.
How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
The healing spells i have work, but it feels a bunch of times i will overheal because i dont have any other heal that can fill the need at that moment.
What’s on your wish list for your class?
More raid/tank saving CD's abilites that can lower casting or cause instant casts on healing spells for damage intensive fights (like malestom weapon)
complete overhaul of totems
What spells do you use the least?
The Shaman class is tech working like bliss has said but compared to the other healing classes it does feel rather underpar. Granted the grass is always greener on the other side, but the class does need a couple things at least it feels like it to me, to make the resto be able to do the jobs as competent as the other classes can
