Is there any way for us to compete with Paladins, Druids and Priests when it comes to healing? I'm well aware that healing is a collaboration and not a race, but right now I often feel like my guild would be better off bringing a Priest or Druid instead of me. Right now the healing team (10-man) is generally a Holy Paladin, myself and either a Resto Druid or a Disc/Holy Priest. The Priest I can somewhat keep up with, but the other two are just a lot more effective than I am, it seems. Aside from a few phases during boss fights in Firelands where the raid has to stack up, I feel like I'm squandering my full potential because Chain Heal doesn't bounce far enough, Healing Rain isn't efficient without enough people in it, and SLT totem isn't something people will group up for because no one will ever notice it. Would it unbalance the game if SLT had a more noticable effect (like PW: Barrier has) or if SLT/Chain Heal/Healing Rain had a bigger range? Or if the Tidal Waves buff from casting Riptide/CH gave us three stacks instead of two so that we would be very competitive when it comes to tank healing? I just want... something to return us to being competitive. Right now it just feels like, at similar skill levels, Shaman healers just fall behind.
