keeping tabs on Holy since HoF and I can say we have not come far nmbers wise in PVE. PVP numbers are way way up so that is good. In pve we still suffer and that is no mystery, SoO is no place for Holy priest, why is that?
mastery is 90% overhealing
Prayer of healing is group based while damage is not.
Circle of healing heals 5 targets for 5% of thier heal give or take with a cool down
Chakra has a long cool down
and our spells are only par if in the right chakra, if we are not it's more of a nerf than a buff.
