First if you were expecting a shadowfiend buff you clearly haven't been paying attention to anything happening with mana regen since WotLK launched. If you are going OOM try not overhealing as much. Or actually use OO5SR regen once in a while. Just cuz it got nerfed doesn't mean you dont go back to 100% in 20 sec. Our mana regen is fine, in fact it is still too high. Even after the replenishment nerf it will still be too high. Dont forget potions still exist as well. Point is, Priest are right behind druids in mana regen, and we should not be going OOM if everyone is doing the fight even somewhat correctly. Maybe the nerfs will actually encourage people to stop needlessly spamming CoH and PoH and learn to heal.

I would definitely agree with your statement. The mana regen nerf a while ago (the one that nerfed the ridiculously high regen you could get when waiting 5 secs) was one of the best decisions Blizzard has made in a while. The sad thing is, Blizzard didn't really nerf anything- they felt the need to buff in combat regen as well, making the nerf to mp5 pretty much useless. If we went back to pre-bc regen rates, we would FAIL at healing. Absolutely get wrecked. In fact, I would venture to say that most of the raid material we have now would be impossible without the regen that we now have. All these healing buffs, in my opinion (and this is just a theory), are all aimed at turning the focus of boss fights over to strategy and dps. Which is probably what it should be, and I'm not complaining, when there are only two fights in game at the moment (not counting CC yet, lol) that present any conceivable sort of difficulty towards healers, those two being hard mode Mim and General. (One of which where mana regen is entirely blocked, proving my point, the other where the raid is taking a gargantuan amount of damage). Not sure I agree with you in terms of druids having better regen than priests. The difference at most is single-to-low double-digit numbers of mp5, in other words something that one piece of gear would change.
