As far as I'm concerned, all healers should shoot for 100% uptime, unless they're close to being oom. This doesn't mean hots on people that don't need it. It doesn't mean bubbles for the hell of it. It does, however, mean that you should at least be casting your basic, mana-efficient heal, if nothing else. If somebody is damaged or about the get damaged, even if it's only a little, there's no reason you can't cast heal. It's dirt-cheap and your regen outpaces it. In my mind, this keeps you sharp and preps you for the times when there is massive incoming damage. You just swap your small heals out for your big heals and keep on rollin'.If you're a healer that's truly opposed to this type of gameplay, we disc priests are lucky in that we still have an easy 100% uptime tactic to keep us busy: Smite healing. I'm not saying this is the best method of healing, but if the alternative is doing nothing, you should be smiting. A little dps on the boss, a little smart healing here and there, and a not-so-little 15% healing buff that you can activate if/when you need it. A discipline priest that stands around waiting for action is making a mistake and could add so much more to their raid if they put their mind to it.
