Hello! I play holy paladin as an alt and need a little bit of advice from SH players who are familiar with gearing for normals. I normally play shadow priest, but I've had to spec disc for progress (including heroic) whenever we were lacking healers in the roster, so healing in general is not new to me.

I recently got my hands on the legendary meta gem and the amplifier trinket, so I swapped out all my spirit gems for mastery gems. So far I'm only doing flex on this character, but I'd like to be able to join a normal pug when the time is right. The output is fine, the mana is fine in flex - but is 12.7k spirit really enough for normals?
I noticed that my mana awareness (with spirit gemming I had close to none) has made it so that I haven't seen a significant increase in HPS with mastery gemming out of fear of running oom, so for now I can't tell if it's just a matter of getting used to it, or if my spirit actually would be too low for normal content. And I'd rather not find out in the middle of a pug.
