First, I feel like there's not much to heal a lot of the time. NOt sure if smart heals are bouncing around or what.
Secondly, I am not sure how healers keep straight what part of the raid they focus on healing, or does everybody just kind of wing it and heal whatever looks like it needs it?
As a tank and player of every class since vanilla, I've just never gotten into raid healing on a serious level and want to try it, but I feel like my shaman and Mistweaver just can't reach very quickly to not have heals sniped, or I'm just picking the wrong targets and running OOM a lot. 5-mans are incredibly easy for me though.
The reason I ask, is that I am considering that maybe I just don't like shaman/mistweaver and might try my disc priest. The disc priest I played a lot in cata as my first healer and did mostly 5mans, and I enjoyed it. Also, I've got a druid at about level 82 that I really enjoyed that I could play.
It's possible that I just don't like raid healing, too, so I'm curious if healing in a 10man setting in a non-LFR raid feels different/more engaging than 25man as well.
