We're not that bad guys...............
Fluers, I have seen you repeat this general sentiment in threads like these.
I am just curious what it is based on? Is it personal experience?
Because from what I can tell, you are healing 10-mans with only 2 other classes (saw a pally once), so your understanding of ranking across all specs would be very limited. Also, it seems like you are currently not healing, and dpsing... And when you have healed, you are quite a bit behind your shaman and monk (who appear to be your main healers, big surprise). To be honest, it looks like any fight you did heal you were eventually swapped to DPS for the kill.....
Not to go all sherlock on you, but i had the impression you were actually competitively healing this tier...
I've healed every boss this tier.... Our kills may not have all
of them with me healing, but that's purely because I'm playing the floater of either dpsing or healing. And it's a well-known fact you gear your DPS before your tank/healer.
So, yes, it's from my experience
of doing all the fights that I have done, that resto is not
in nearly as bad of a spot you all are making it out to be.
saying we don't need changes, because we do. I have been saying from day 1 that shrooms need to be worked on. And I also think considering our spell for single-target is also our main raid-heal, we should have some kind of leniency towards mana flexibility. Meaning, give us revitalize back, put a 2 min cd on innervate (or something), decrease cost of rejuv... Something along those lines.
But to say the sky is falling and to cry about it like priests did in the beginning of this tier is just wrong. We are not being sat outside of top tier progression guilds (and that is not something to base balance off of).
