This matches my experience playing as a holy priest as well. This early, a lot of people are re-learning their class, toying with new abilities, and don't have access to a lot of the addons they're used to running. As a result, party-wide damage is a lot more common now than it will be after a few months once everyone gets more settled into their individual roles. A few times I've had to simply shield up and let a random non-elite add keep hitting me until the tank and DPS could figure out what to do about it. Low-level normal instances are fairly forgiving like that. The Death Knights tank just fine, but as noted they do require a bit more attention due to being a bit behind on the gear curve. For the fun of it, at 70 I did a Guardian build, forsaking Meditation in order to reach it: It was doable with t4 gear. Required drinking between fights, and I've never been so happy for an innervate in my life. But perfectly doable for the 70-74 instances. (and if it's not - blame the DPS for not killing stuff faster)One piece of advice I'd like to give for healing in early Wrath: Don't be afraid to use your cooldowns during trash, even if you don't strictly need them at that point. A lot of things have changed for healers, and getting familiarity with what you can do, while under reasonably comfortable and controlled conditions, is invaluable for when things get harder later on.
