I've recently swapped to a resto druid main to play on an alt server. The guild I have been gearing up with was having a lot of trouble on Garrosh tonight, and although I unfortunately do not have logs, I was hoping that some of you might be able to tear my character apart to give me some advice to better at least myself.

I am working on secrets to get my cloak (and super excited about the increased drop rate of the legendary quest items), so I know that I am missing that. As far as gear and stats, I understand that the haste BP to shoot for is 13136, and I'm only hovering around 11k. I've read some mixed reviews of - go for haste and always haste, others of if you can't hit the BP, don't bother. I'm sort of confused and trying to really make sure I hit it, without sacrificing mana and throughput. Should I be reforging to mastery if I can't get the 13136 haste? Or is it okay to be under?
I've been playing around with talents a lot - usually defaulting to Force of Nature because it was comfortable. However, I'm finding that with Garrosh, it just doesn't work. Tonight I tried Soul of the Forest, and seemed to be hitting the right times to use it - popping it so that I can WG the first few seconds of whirling corruption, just before annihilate hits, etc. Incarnation seemed to completely destroy my mana bar, so I avoided using that. I AM 2 healing (disc priest is healing partner) and 1 tanking (with a rather... squishy druid tank). Was using Heart of the Wild for most of the night, but swapped to Nature's Vigil to try to get an extra healing cool down in. We also have a shaman in our group that I am using for Spiritwalker's Grace. I seem to be keeping up fairly well with our priest, who has slightly more gear and his cloak. But still, I was only averaging 90k heals (between 75k and 100k).
If there's anything else you could tell me, I'd be really appreciative. I had no problem healing Proving Grounds and Challenge Modes, but Garrosh is harder for some reason? Used to my Paladin, which was very much the opposite.
