If you stack mastery as a resto shaman like you should be then this patch was awesome, but if you stack crit (seriously, its a waste with the crit to actual % ratio right now), then you probably won't like it so much.Remember mastery > crit in any situation as a resto shaman.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

As Joe points out, Resto Mastery is inverse benefit, as in if you are doing your job as a healer and healing, the value of mastery decreases as your target gets to higher health. Currently, Chim is the only raid boss that our mastery really shines.

Mastery: If target has to be kept at high percent of life, not great. Anyone healing your target also devalues your mastery.Crit, if you crit and overheal, oh no! Oh wait....Improved water shield does what? Oh, on a crit it gives you mana.Ancestral healing reduces the damage they take, oh after a crit.Ancestral Awakening, oh hey, it needs a crit to get a free heal.In the worst case scenario where you crit, someone still gets a heal, you get mana and the person takes less damage.In the worst case for mastery, it just plain does jack all.I am still surprised they didn't make mastery be "The lower percentage the target is in health, the higher your crit chance."
