I believe the WoL numbers that Allie used up there are effective heals. Recount also does this natively, when you look at the healing meters, they produce effective heals, not total heals (which would include overhealing).I hear what you are saying though. Another difference in healing is raid healing versus tank healing. Generally speaking, raid healers are going to have higher HPS than tank healers. I would gander that the pallies topping those meters are getting a lot of use out of Light of Dawn and Holy Radiance. Let me go check those logs a sec... And indeed, virtually all of the paladins that I sampled on those top 10 leaderboards had Holy Radiance as their top healing spell. So there you go. If shaman are being used as tank healers more than raid healers, you aren't going to see them on those top 10s as much. In fact I see healing rain as the top spell for virtually all the shaman on that healing list too.Anyway that would explain it. I don't know which classes make the best tank healers (I don't heal, ever), but I do know a bit about the mechanics of throughput and HPS, and AOE healing, similar to AOE dps, is always going to be higher than single-target, generally speaking.
