Losing a key member (or any member in some cases) of your raid group mid combat has almost always been cause for a wipe in challenging content.Lose a holy paladin in ICC? Might as well wipe it now. Lose any healer going into a healer intensive phase in ICC (sindy/PP P3) then your probably going to wipe. Lose a strong AE dps going into magmaw/maloriak/cho'gall, your screwed.Having a raids reliance on one person (specific, or anyone) not die is nothing new.Towards the people who suggested that if the shaman didn't show, your screwed. In theory the same already applies to raiders. You only want enough mana/regen to be able to survive between mana tide totems, with mana tide + OP valor trinket bringing you back up/close to full mana, as such you stack less regen.Perhaps I'll write up a longer post, backed up with more maths beyond just the basic concept at some stage.
