Amazing article.Playing a Prot Warrior, I'd like to point every healer I meet to this article, even those silly Random Dungeon Disco Priests that heal me with nothing but Shield, Renew and Penance. -.-(sad day, sad, sad day.)Anyway, great read.

To be fair, that's all you need. If you think that's too little, just wait until you random in with me on my shammy. I'll earth shield you, /follow and go make a sandwich. ;)

It would've been fine if it wasn't Utgarde Keep and the priest wasn't in all level 60 gear.And he still refused to use Only shield, renew and Penance.I get down-ranked for sharing personal experience.Awesome, at least now I know better.

"I get down-ranked for sharing personal experience.Awesome, at least now I know better."Wrong. you get downranked for sharing personal experience that looks an awful lot like a blanket statement on all disc priests. I don't care if this was intentional or not, don't get all butthurt about being downranked when you're the one making inflammatory comments.On topic, This is an awesome article, a healer truly does need to understand the other players in a raid more than any other role, tanks being the cornerstone of the raid means that you should always have at least a basic understanding of what your current tank is capable of, when you get into a random the first thing you do is check the tank's health, but it's also good to observe gear, class, and spec If you want to have a good idea of the kind of healing you're going to be doing in the run.And thus we prevent wipes =)

Wait a minute .. in heroics the only thing I end up healing with most of the time is Holy Nova from my "run in and spam it on the mobs so I can dps and heal at the same time because this is too easy" tactic. :pBut yes, in reality like others have said, most times a bubble, renew, or prayer of mending is all that's needed for a typical heroic setup. Penance and flash heals are reserved for badly geared tanks, or one of the ICC heroics.
