Have you had a chance to do any testing in a 10 man environment. Also, should we reforge some gear around to boost up our mastery? I'm just very worried about my Shaman. I love playing him as a main, but I just don't know where he stands right now. I sort of feel like if I moved over to my priest I will be helping out my guild out by being able to heal that much more.

Yes, I think the bigger discrepancy is in the 10 man environment, and stem from being unable to use our less powerful AE heals as often (either due to spot healing more, given healer availability, or just due to target range conflicting with spell range).

10's are a bit trickier right now, but from the beginning it has been a challenge to work CH into the rotations on 10's. Same room size, less raider essentially. That said if you can coordinate with your group you can achieve similar results and numbers. The trick in 10s is really communicating what you need people to do, like when to group up. I've been using healing rain as my marker having people collapse to the blue circle. They'll usually get close enough that I can let chain heal do its thing and go from there. From a healing perspective 10s are indeed harder, but with some simple communication it isn't as bad as it could be, and we can still take advantage of our recent tweaks.

It's hard to say whether you should reforge into mastery without seeing your other stats and your healing results to date. So far, the passive mastery gained just through normal gearing has been pretty effective. The problem with our mastery is it really requires targets to be low on health before it really counts. It's sort of like an inverse buff. The lower the health, the greater the healing, but our job is to bring their health totals up, so the effectiveness is limited. I would honestly say not reforging for it and just passively gaining it should be enough until you start getting into fights were everyone is constantly at lower health totals for basically the entire fight.

Like Chimaeron?I'm not a healer but just a passing reader so feel free to vote me down if I say something stupid, but it seems to me Shaman mastery is great for that fight. Actually it looks very good for progression fights in general.
