The best way to conserve mana is to lean heavily on Holy Light and your Shock and holy power spells. The more you cast Flash/Divine Light or use Holy Radiance, the worse your mana pool will look. I try to heal with HL exclusively, and I only swap to DL when it's absolutely necessary. A lot of us are still in the "Wrath mindset" of "heal everyone to full immediately". I'll often cast a ton of Holy Lights just to bring everyone up, taking a ton of time, but saving a lot of mana. As long as nobody dies, you're fine using a slower, cheaper heal.Against massive group damage, I try to have a 3-stack of Holy Power available, use LoD, Holy Radiance, etc. For example, on Chimaeron, I stop healing if people are above 50% with one Feud tick left. He's going to Feud -> Massacre anyway, and knowing when you can safely stop healing is key. Keeping everyone at 100% all the time costs a lot of mana, and so learning who needs heals and how urgently becomes key in maintaining mana.Reforging order: Haste > Spirit > Crit > Mastery. If a piece has crit/mastery, I'll reforge the mastery to haste, etc. If you're having mana issues, you can try swapping your reforges to spirit. You can never have "enough" spirit, and stacking more is never a bad thing to do. Just remember that it's more economical to gem Intellect than it is to gem Spirit, etc. Intellect still gives us tons of mana at the start of the fight and still affects several of our regeneration mechanics.I personally don't like mastery at all. I see it as a simple boost to healing, x mastery means you do x more healing. Unfortunately, it's not guaranteed as we don't know who will get hit and it's easy to waste. Even worse, if my target has low life, I'm certainly not relying on a small bubble to keep them alive, so it doesn't save me much in the way of actual healing done either. I treat mastery as my lowest value stat.
