Back in the day, you brought a pally for the tank and shamans raid-healed with totems and chain heal.Pallys still tank heal, but is there a niche for shaman's? If we are raid healing with what? It's not CH, so is it "bring a shaman so they can do a few riptides per minute?" And every tank learns that Healing Rain is the universal symbol for "time to move the boss."

Shamans can do anything and everything. Since Cata and all the patches I have still yet to see another healer heal more than my shaman on the healing charts. It does not matter whether I am healing the raid or the tank. It is so easy to keep the raid healed through Healing Rain and CH. If your haste/mastery/crit are at acceptable levels then your Healing Wave will heal for about 15k+ hp and will be able to rip off one after another. It all depends on the situation and knowing which spell to use. I can heal a tank for days by using Unleash elements, Riptide, Healing wave x2. Healing wave is so powerful if you have your stats to back it up and you do not even have to worry about mana regen because the spell costs hardly any mana. Throw in an occasional GHW and resto shaman are still superior. I laugh when I read or hear people complain about their shaman healing because I know that is just 1 more person who doesnt know how to play their class.
