I've been playing wow for over 6 years now and I did hardcore healing heroic raiding in wrath and haven't healed since. Since monk came out I thought I would give it a shot as an alt after leveling and gearing my main.
I have to say, after doing some research and actually trying to memorize and heal via mistweaver....I had no clue what I was doing. I tried, I really did, I could not for the life of me understand the mana/chi thing. Back in my healing days of wrath we had one thing as a resto shaman...mana.
I'm not dissing monk healers or anything but man I had have the utmost respect for those monk healers out there. I think I'll just stick to dps for all my alts lol my healing days are over.
