Feb 10th 2011 6:28AM ... point is that we can't keep a tank topped off... no-one can! However, we are surely the best in getting the tank back to acceptable health level - fast. If you try and keep your tank topped off, you are burning off your mana faster than you should. With Mastery talent we can live life a little more dangerous since we know that Mastery talent will help us when the Tank is getting seriously low on health. Unleash Elements + Riptide + Greater Healing Wave is a seriously big heal now and quite fast to cast for the output it gives.
Our raid heals however are still very poor compared to druids and priests. What we can do effective is this area is keeping the melee group up with healing Rain and Chain Heal. This hasn't changed since... forever.
Feb 9th 2011 8:34AM It's funny you say this, 'cause I totally hate being set to do raid healing. Both druids and priests have better tools to do raid healing than us Shamans, while we together with pallys, and maybe disc priests, have better tools for tank healing.
If there's one thing the Mastery talent together with how Riptide works, tells me it is that Blizzard wants us to be Tanks specific healers more than Raid healers.
