As a healer, I can say crushing blows with that name may have been removed from the game, but they snuck right back in as Blizz realized tanks were just not getting hit and (according to Blizz) healers need to be challenged because healing is so easy.And now the only classes/specs who can heal main tanks are paladins and (some) disc priests [for progression, not for fights the MT/OT and healers outgear of course] because anyone else's big heals are just not mana-efficient enough or big enough.

What do you mean by "progression"? Heroic modes?My guild cleared 5/5 TotC-25 and 4/5 TotGC-10 without a single Paladin or Disc priest. Considering we had only managed to kill Hodir in Ulduar we definitely weren't over geared.

With the right spec and glyphs, shammies and to a lesser degree druids can be alright tank healers. However, paladins are still better at that job, and with your level of experience I find it hard to believe that this is news to you.I think what you're really just saying is you have a strong guild that can push through content even with a less-than-ideal group composition. Grats on that, but the man still has a point about certain classes being at a clear disadvantage on tank healing.

My shaman would disagree
