This is a great fight to be a holy priest. As someone already mentioned, one PoH can get a whole group taken care of during the massacre phase, and we're excellent raid heals during feud... It's a lot of PoH spam on rotating groups (I also raid in 25s). I stay in PoH chakra, keep PoM and CoH on CD as usual, keep Renew on the tank, and throw out Renew as needed for cleanup on folks not in my assigned group.PW:S with BnS is pretty awesome during the last burn phase too. It doesn't protect for as much as a disco shield, but it helps the aggroed raid member kite for a few more seconds. When they're in range, you can always hit them with a lifegrip too. The goal for me in this fight is to minimize my healing. Idle time during massacre? You're healing it right. It'll give time for your mana to regen as well. One of our resto shamans also recommended showing the "Low Health" debuff on our raid frames. It goes away as soon as a raid member is back at 10K+ health, so you can tell who needs heals, and who is safe.

As a druid healer (Lazydragon@Frostmane), we've downed heroic Chimeron with using a druid as a group healer (we use the group assign strat at this point, although considering switching). Generally we have two druids, one of which is on the tanks and one is assigned a raid group for caustics.First off, many druids will want to respec/glyph a little for this fight. Strongly consider taking http://www.wowhead.com/item=40912 , and one or more points in http://www.wowhead.com/spell=17076 . The trick here is to abuse your mastery by ensuring a hot is constantly running on all five of your group members without draining your mana. Do this by applying a regrowth to everyone and keeping them BELOW 50%. I tend to apply these using clearcast procs when we're first setting up. Run your usual 3 stack of lifeblooms on yourself as well for CC procs and to remove yourself from the healing equation (LBx3 will heal 10k in 4 seconds).- So if you get hit with one caustic, do w/e you want.- Two caustics, regrowth one (mastery = +20% strength, with Nature's Bounty it'll have a large crit chance, but even w/o it should tick to over 10k within 4sec) and possible proc http://www.wowhead.com/spell=61346 as a bonus. Then nourish the other (saves mana & does the job when time not as pressing)- Three caustics, regrowth on first, regrowth on second, swiftmend third.- Four caustics - pick your least favourite person to die.It's a rather un-druidlike way to heal, but unfortunately hots are just too slow for this demand. I tend to do the above while keeping rejuvs on each tank as well, occasionally letting them fall when I get stressed w/ multi-caustics.Note this is all from a 25m raiding environment perspective.

Agree with droch on tacs for druids in this fight, glyph of regrowth helps a lot more than the lifebloom one would do, particularly in increasing the number of targets that can be swiftmendable by having the regrowth dot continually ticking between feud phases. Definately stack haste for this fight I would suggest (if you are raid healing), even if you cant get over 2004 (although this helps).On 10man, I would suggest you cover the first feud with tranq, 2nd with ToL. This should mean that your tranq will be off cd to help heal the raid up before P2, and then your ToL should be back in P2 as well so you can help add extra dps with wrath.NS/HT can help get a quick tank heal off during feud phases and allow you to get back to healing the raid.
