Great article. I like the priority system and the triage that healing is heading toward. It really makes the encounters more fun for healers.

Sadly, it also makes an already stressful job daunting to newer players which hurts the DPS vs. other roles balance. However; I prefer this to healing being boring.

Heading towards? It's been like this for at least 4 years. The only difference cata brought was move mana-management than WotLK.

it's funny, i healed by priorities back when i first rolled my shaman in wrath. i was, by all accounts, jaw-dropping. /ahead of the curve?
twill does have the right notion RE mana management. it's very interesting. you learn to dance a delicate tweaking of gear, output, timing, cooldowns, weaving a web of life.mana management even at the upper levels is the thing that marks the true skill of a healer.

Sadly, mana management is disappearing at this point in the expansion. As we gear up to greater heights, it's becoming possible (required) to heal like it was Wrath again. Hell, my druid is technically undergeared for regular DS, and yet only runs oom on 3 fights in there if I try to heal like it was wrath again.It may be that this is inevitable, and perhaps not wholly horrible for the last tier of content. Hopefully the beginning of MoP puts as back in our place, and I can step back from reaction speed, over-hotting, and OMG the tank is gonna get gibbed! healing, and back to mana and triage.
