First off, I want to point out - IT HAS BEGUN:
Paladins are now 2nd to last (poor resto shammies) in 25m heroic.
I looked at our raid's though-put tonight and here's the breakdown in our heals:
Druid: 35% rejuv; 21.5% tranq (oh, and on Jin'Rokh it was Wild Mushroom: 41.7% heals)
Holy Priest: 21.6 Echo of Light; 18.2% Divine Hymn
RShammie: Healing Rain 22.7%; Healing Stream Totem 17.0%; Healing Tide 12.5%
Monk (an alt, so not the best example): Renewing Mist: 30.8%; Uplift 23.4%; Revivial 9.9%

If you look at some boss kills, their CDs were their #1 heal. No joke.
Here's what kills me: Every healer but the holy paladin has a throughput spell. One cast.
Now I know disc doesn't - but their class does if they went holy (they're on top by far anyway).
Here's what kills me:
What do we get? AM. I know we have other CDs but our main raid CD is AM. Don't get me wrong - AM is amazing...but I'm sorry - I also think we need a raid thoughput CD.
Here's why: I work my ass off all raid, and I see a one button click from another healer ROCKET their HPS past mine.
I know...I know - HPS isn't everything. Well, some of us really enjoy being competitive in a HPS format.
These new CDs have me really depressed. Not liking 5.3 that much
