One of the things I've noticed while healing (I do play a resto shaman, but I see this with all the healers I run with) is that one day, things just click. People go from, "Oh my god, where's my mana?" panic mode to, "Hey, this is difficult, but I think I'm getting it."For any resto shaman (or other healer) out there who is feeling distraught, I think the best advice anyone can give is to just stick with it. Don't give up if you have a bad run or two. Find a tank or a few DPS willing to go through the content with you. Get into runs where you trust the other players.If you truly want to heal, you'll figure it out.

It's also important to keep in mind that the rest of the group is extremely important to healing successfully now. When I started with my Pally in heroics I was pretty spoiled, getting some pugs that knew how to CC, get out of the fire and wait on mana before charging. I wondered what everyone was complaining about. Later I got a few of the infamous groups that make healers want to die and understood the complaints better.I feel like things are getting better overall as people are learning but we have to keep in mind we can't correct for everyone's laziness anymore like we used to. the rest of the group doing their duty is just as important to our success as we are to theirs.

Exactly, I had some problems when I first started healing, but I eventually worked out the major problems I was having. I am actually very much enjoying resto now, I keep everybody alive usually :) and my mana stays mostly above 50% unless we are in a heavy damage phase or the tank still has wrath syndrome. I went from LHW/CH/RT spam during wrath, to now having to explore all the tools I have avliable.
