Retool mastery! I hate that it is most efficient when my target is nearly dead. With 200% crits now, from my experience it feels like stacking crit is a better route than mastery.

Well go ahead and stack crit or quit chasing green bars and concentrate more on keeping people alive.

I keep people alive just fine. It's stupid that my mastery stat is situational at best, and pointless when people aren't dying. How about commenting to my comment with something constructive and not about my perceived lack of ability to heal?

Hi Cat,I think our mastery is actually better than other healing classes- because of how it inflates and it happens *when* you need it.When people are low in health, it's nice to have our spells be super strong. If they are at 70%+, it's not really essential. I bring that up because other classes have an across the board feel to it, whereas we truly benefit when we need it. (at the expense of it doing nothing when we don't)In a way, it's like the way a troll's berserk used to be (more at lower hp). Also, I wanted to share with you a perspective you may or may not engage in - PvP.MASTERY IS SOOOOOOOOO COOL FOR SHAMANS IN PVP! When I'm taking a beating, I'm actually stronger, and harder to kill. And with it affecting the healing stream totem AND earth shield, it's awesome. *granted all it takes is a warrior or one of many classes to lock me out of nature spells grrr but thats a different story*Shaman Mastery is like an Air Bag. But I compare it to other classes padded seats. Sure, it might be an easier ride with nice upholstry, but push comes to shove, we shine.
