Great article and you know since healers care soooo much we are going to come out of the woodwork to "correct" you. LOLShaman actually can be great single target healers (as in MTs) in some situations where layering of heals is going on. With Healing Way talented and use of Healing Wave, we can downrank and heal until the cows come home. Likewise, in situations where you have melee in with a tank, I will also use healing wave-healing wave-chain heal-healing wave-healing wave...style rotations.I take issue with this:"CoH Priests: Don't start respec'ing to CoH unless you completely fulfill the following requirements:1) You're working on Vashj and healing the melee in the middle or are in MH/BT"I whole heartedly disagree. Before I switched to raiding on my shaman I was a CoH priest, and had been since Kara. If you are reasonably Kara geared CoH begins to have utility as early as Aran. Beyond Kara, provided you have an intelligent raid leader stacking groups appropriately, CoH rocks. It only improves as you progress, so no reason to tell people not to spec for CoH early.If you can't get a resto shaman, you must have CoH priests as soon as you can get them. To say they don't become useful until BT/MH is inaccurate. Resto shaman are still hard to come by Alliance side on some servers, so we have learned how to use CoH priests in their place.CoH priests can and do deliver long before BT/MH--they become OP in BT/MH. Another important reason to spec for CoH earlier rather than later in the content: priests need to learn how to use CoH without becoming an agro bomb. The pre BT/MH content provides both safer and easier opportunities to do that. Do not wait until you are in T6 content to spec for CoH.
