Whilst you 12k HPS is great, it's only possible using a healing style that is totally unviable in 10 mans.I more or less never use Healing Rain, unless it's a fight I can afford to throw mana away like Magmaw, and even then it's not that great because the Holy Pally pops Radiance and the Holy Priest drops Sanctuary and everyone is healed up before half of Rain's duration is up.I know we scale well with the size of the raid and with the difficulty of the fight, but I'd like to be able to do competitive healing on the entry level 10 man raids too.Disc and Resto Druids seem to have gotten a nice buff from 4.0.6 but with the healing style available to me I haven't gone up by more than a couple percent, well within the margin for error.

I'd argue that isn't entirely true. Holy Radiance is an aura spell, with a 1 minute cool down and 10s duration. It's not raid wide and still requires people to be in range. Sanctuary I assume you're talking about Chakra sanctuary, which increases AoE and renew healing by 15% . Sure they get a boost, but it's honestly not that much better than what we can do. I'd argue that 10s is all about coordination. If you can get people to spread out just enough and to still stay withing range, you can still post solid numbers. Also try to keep in mind that the healers job isn't just to top the raid off anymore, but is to stabilize the raid and prevent death. Our tools are uniquely suited to do that better than just about anyone else. But that's a topic of a different post. While I'm sorry to hear your percentages haven't gone up that much, I'd have to ask what type of group you're running with and what your healing team is.
