On a more serious note.Raid Healing balance still needs to be thought through, when organizing even 25 man Naxx.You can PUG any 5-6 healers into an OS/Vault runBut, just between you, me and the FBI (they're everywhere man!), You can't take 5 resto shammy into a patchwerk fight and expect anything but pain.Resto Shammies big heal = too slow. Chain heal = to slow. Small Heal = To little, to late.And for the record telling the boomkin and the shadow priest to help heal patch just means everyone dies a little later than otherwise....Oh, and btw, Make sure you cocky, loudmouthed pally tank actually has on his TANKING GEAR or all you're going to have is a pally smear at patchworks feet.But I'm not bitter.

You might have terrible shamans... I've actually two healed 25 man vault with another resto shaman.Also 2 healed 10 man patchwerk with another resto shaman. Its really pretty simple - keep up earthshield on both tanks (thats 3000/5000 hp when it procs without casting anything), and just spam lesser healing wave.When tidal wave kicks in (and it has a 100% chance to - if you have actually specced resto) healing wave and lesser healing wave are pretty fast actually. 30% haste is almost like having heroism up almost all the time.Honestly watching other shamans in pugs - are pretty terrible. They don't drop proper totems for the pull or boss in question, they are terrible at keeping earthshield up on the correct target etc.

Verit:/agree only the offtank I was healing on patch-25 had his earth sheild up. but when patch was hitting for 20k+, 2k procs are not worth mentioning.Problem with 2 of the resto shammys was gear. One was ignorance. Me, I have never had a problem on patch before. But they gave me the DK offtank to heal, so your mileage may very. I think the other resto shammys were attempting to throw chain/healing wave.But it could just have been gear.And an idiot pally. did I mention the idiot pally?????
