I still don't have beta access, but as a priest that has run more heroics since the PTR went up last night than I have on live in a month, I am staying away from the dungeon finder when this first goes live.Mana, while it might matter at 85, is infinite at 80, at least in my gear (264/277). The health pools of those I am running with are decidedly NOT however. Mobs hit quite a bit harder, and our aggro-happy dps friends are in for a rude awakening when the heroic mobs they are used to ignoring come two-shot them.From playing with different "rotations" I sincerely hope that we re-think our playstyles before mana begins to matter. In most heroics I can get by with using Heal as both holy and disc, however healing H HoR without CC proved to be impossible until my group started using CC. I could keep up right up until the point that one of the dps pulled aggro and needed actual single-target heals. If that happened with 4 or so mobs still beating on our tank, we were done.Tank threat is low, healing is weaker, mobs hit harder. It will be a learning experience for everyone and I plan to avoid pugs until the first shock wears off!
