I'm still afraid to use my CDs when I raid. I know, I know, "Gripnsip, shamans have great utility and awesome cds to save the raid! Why wouldn't you use them?" I just...I don't know. I'm afraid that I'll waste them at the wrong time, then everyone will die, and my RL will yell at me. It seems so stupid, and I do use them, just not as much as I should. How can I get over my fear of popping my CDs on cooldown or more often? I do use them all, but only when prompted or when I know big damage is coming, but other than that, I'm afraid to blow HTT or Ascendance and I know it isn't doing me or my raid any favors.
I can't get past this mental block. Any advice? Right now my healing rain up-time is abysmal because people in my raid like to be lone wolves in the ranged, same with my old guild, so I just learned to never bother dropping it because people would move out of it or not bother moving in. I'm still getting used to having HTT and Ascendance, and never using chain heal in Cata as opposed to spamming it like it was my religion in WotLK still has me conditioned to use single-target heals instead.
