    Definitely try it. I know I would. It was either that or echo. Haven't tried both, but then I'd have to use healing surge more often to not waste the tidal waves. Will try it tonight.

    In dungeon I find this earthern shield talent useless. Except maybe against bosses. You'll constantly be moving. With echo, I've a lot of riptide cast and since they're instant heal + talent that provides a 10% increased health, it's a win-win situation for me.

    Like I said, most totems are useless for me. I tried really hard to find its use and then went with echo. Life went wayyy easier with this talent. I definitely prefer this target healing over very slow AoE heals against unpredictable damage. Cloudburst fits more for Raid imo.

    I can perfectly understand that. This is my own opinion, but I dislike long CDs in dungeons. It's impossible to predict how much damage the group will take. I like to use this talent when I don't have any riptide left. It's a nice way to wait for another riptide stack, and with graceful spirit you can use it pretty much every 2/3 trashpack. After that I like to use Healing Stream Totem with Ancestral guidance.

    Just try echo. And get intellect trinket + relics. 780 is a very low one. Look for WQs relics, and use them asap because the ilvl will go up aswell for the next time you'll do the same WQ. I don't know how exactly WQs rewards works, but the higher ilvl you are, the higher the reward is up to a certain point where it stalls.

    It's shame to admit that I have not gotten around to much WQ, been focusing on my artifact and order hall questline in the very limited play time I can manage. But I did a dungeon, heroic, and healing felt smoother and easier (or maybe ended up with a very reasonable tank). Yes, can't cure stupid but still felt better compared to heroic dungeon before the talent change. I do agree that in dungeons the long CD are pain in the ..... . Cause when you waste it on a trash pack and have nothing for the boss when needed then you're in trouble. Thanks for the ideas and discussion.

    Hi, I've been a healer most of my playtime in wow, but never healed with a shaman. Wondering what the state of the restoration shaman
    is at the moment. The thing I do know is that they're good when players are close/stacked but shamans lose some effectiveness when
    players are scattered. Is this still the case? In terms of cooldowns, are they strong? I've experience with Discipline priest, Holy priest, Holy
    Paladin and Mistweaver.
