lol, you're going to have such a bad time honestly letting a bunch of !@#$%^s in this thread decide what you play.
I suppose so. Except, we're not deciding for the OP. They asked for a discussion on a variety of healers and it was provided because people here do play all different types of healers at all different types of levels.
We all need to start somewhere.
If you truly are doing 40k heals as a paladin on megaera you're doing it wrong and it's just player skill really switching to another healer isn't going to help you.
Except it might, sometimes people just don't enjoy playing a class for a variety of reasons. And honestly, my cohealer does that much on megaera if we 3 heal is since he's sniped to hell. But on fights where he isn't sniped (2 healing) he does 2x or more of that. So again, it's not a metric to solely rely on when determining player skill. Regardless, that's not very constructive or helpful.
Please go be sour somewhere else.
Whats this holy sever mana issues crap? Honestly no one knows how to manage mana anymore and you actually had to manage mana back in the day. Inner will, 10k spirit, 1 min mindbender CD WHAT !@#$ING MANA PROBLEMS.
When your a holy priest working on progression, you're going to be undergeared and facing a lot of a high damage encounters. Mana does get tight, but this alleviates with gear as already explained. Also, you should probably try playing a Holy priest at the heroic level before actually saying things like this. You might find that Holy's mana management isn't as easy as it seems. Additionally, Inner Will is a healing loss-- one should be in Inner Fire when possible.
Inner Fire has changed, and no longer provides a flat Spellpower increase, but instead scales your spellpower by 10%. This is substantial as it increases its worth as your gear improves. When glyphed with Inner Sanctum, Inner Fire also mitigate 6% of all incoming magic damage
Inner Will only reduces the cost of instant cast spells. With Inner Sanctum, to me, Inner Fire is a better choice pretty much all of the time.
