Wheres the nerf for shaman regen?

With all the hue and crying over the nerf to discipline priests, which I agree, a tweek to their setup was definately needed, there is no single complaint or outcry over the unlimited mana shaman seem to bring to a raid. Ive watched shaman truck through healing without any concern to spell choices and their mana goes nowhere. The only healer ending a fight with tons of mana. Prior to Discipline priests getting bump with Spirit Shell, shaman were dominating the meters and will almost definately be back after the priest nerf.

Yet again, the nearly unlimited mana they bring is acceptable?

With regards to discipline mana, you realize the rapture nerf is the equivalent of 1 potion right? Of course your playstyle is changing completely (in a nutshell, power word shielding more for the pre-shields over DA buildup through overhealing), but you brought up mana so... that is what you will see.

So if you wanna nerf shaman mana regen by 1 potion, then.... go ahead?

To be fair, I do think they need to nerf glyph of totemic recall.

Already its a mandatory glyph as it gives us a good chunk of mana which we wouldn't have access to in any other way.

of course if you spec PE (which a lot of us do) you will find yourself unable to do it as much, but... yeah.

should nerf the glyph so that the mana return depends on how much duration is left on the totem instead of just giving us full mana.

Glyphs shouldn't be mandatory. This is.

But I would probably expect some sort of buff to resurgence (maybe not complete compensation, but there should be something) if that was the case, especially since next tier feels like we will go back to using a lot more single targets.

But ya I shoulda realized this guy was a troll

I like to think Im just good at knowing what spells to use in order to conserve mana the whole fight, and only use mana tide or lightning bolt when I have some kind of healing going out. Its called being smart, not OP.

Don't get me nerfed bro...

A smart healer knows how to manage their mana.

Maybe they're using the firelands (?) 2 set bonus and blanketing riptide ! Except that would gimp their stats and I don't think the return even covers the cost of the riptides... So probably just trolling.

Actually...that is an interesting thought...a 2 piece isn't a huge nerf. On average, every Riptide would restore 3.6% of your mana, and Riptide only costs 3.2%...

Didn't they nerf all the Fireland bonuses that returned mana % some time ago? I recall the priest one getting nerfed as people were taking it for the buff mana from PoM.
