Thank you so much for this article, I was feeling very discouraged for a while about the changes in Cata, but that Glyph of Chain Heal looks awesome! The Healing Stream Totem also looks super cool, I am still stoked to be a shaman healer!Unglyphed total 217.6% (100+60+36+21.6) I assume the:Glyphed total 238% (85+70+49+34.30)My first target getting 100% of the healing my chain heal hits by is usually overkill, so I am really looking forward to this glyph.PS:MeriannaI can tell you that this whole tank heal/raid heal thing is not something I take into account as a healer. By the time you are wearing tier 10 and are using trinkets from Ruby Sanctum or ICC, a shaman can heal tanks or raid or even both at a time. I have just about every healer class but a Paladin and I can say the same for all healing classes.I don't get the way people pigeon-hole certain healers for certain tasks. I can tell you that most great healers can do both, and that doing only one tasks or being pigeon-holed by raid leaders who are not familiar with the strength and weaknesses of all healer classes makes healing boring and restrictive. This is why most people hate healing...By promoting shaman to strictly raid heal, you are missing out on their damage mitigating properties and ability to heal multiple targets with the press of one button. It is also reinforcing a culture of misinformed players who believe the whole tank or raid healer idea and to mindlessly force it on healers.
