I am a holy pally. My guild is 4/5 Hyjal and 3/9 BT. I regularly rank between 2-5 in healing most nights. THe nights that we bring 4 priests though I am always 5th. On fights like Naj in BT I hold my own, but am relegated to MT heal duty. I throw heals around after his bubble bursts, but mainly I spam the tank with Flash of Light and the occasional Holy Light. As we progress in BT I need to start picking up some spell haste gear or I am am going to be completely gimped. I know I can heal with the best healers in my guild or even my server, but there are areas where being a pally cripples me. Pallies need a POM/Circle type heal. I am not saying it needs to be as effective as the Priest spells, but added utility would be great. Holy shock needs to be able to be specced into the holy tree for improvements. Also, change the mechanic of having to face the person being healed...not damaged, but healed. Talents for extending it's range, lessening the CD or the mana cost would go a long way to making it a viable instant cast heal. With range being the first priority. I rarely use Holy Shock to heal during a raid but when I do it is pretty useful. I can rip off a 2.5 - 3k Holy Shock then immediately follow it with a 3k Flash of light that's almost 6k heals in a matter of less than 2 seconds. Which at times has saved wipes.One more thing I'd like to see for pallies is that when you judge a mob that any damage refreshes the judgment. For long boss fights that would be fantastic, but I digress. (AOE Judgments would be rad as well).So, pallies are not gimped...especially if you know how to play your class, but we definitely need some healing love.Also, our main tank is a prot pally and a very excellent one at that. My 2 cents
