So shaman got that 20% bump across the board to all their healing spells. Still they were low man on the totempole for Throne.
As it stands now on PTR, shaman are insanely overpowered. OP to the point that Elemental shaman can toss a healing rain down and outheal normal healers. To the point where every healer goes oom at the end of a fight, but shaman are full mana. To the point where shaman's spell use is comprised of mostly 2 spells: Healing Rain and Chain Heal which make up 40% or more of their healing alone.
Is this how Bliz is balancing out shaman in the next raiding tier? Not to mention Prot Paladins still do some insane healing. I am hoping since its still early on in the ptr these healing issues can be examined more indepth and balanced out.
Shaman are an overall great healing class and bring alot to a raid overall. Overbuffing them to the extent they are now on the ptr to make up for 1 bad raiding tier for them seems nutty!
Apart from shaman, the other healers all seem more in line with each other finally. Some differences in healing styles then what some may be used to now, but same mana use, same closeness in numbers, etc.
Does anyone have any ptr logs right now from fights?
