[Disclaimer: I am aware that nothing is certain yet and that I really do not know shit.]
When I heal a encounter, I like the fact that I need to be 100% focused all the time.
Not that I *need* to spam'a'lam - But I like when the fight goes tough and its the little extra that gives us that kill.
But when I read blue posts about how Cataclysm will affect healing - so that healing will not increase the same way stamina will and that it should not be needed to have people at either 100 % or 20 % and that mana regen would become a much larger concern for healers. (The mana regen suits me fine, I am looking forward to harnest my experience as holy priest - when other classes did not have to be as mana concerning.)
Well first off all, as a healer I have this syndrom - People with lower than 100 % health need healing, in ICC or AH it does not matter. My eyes hurt when grid is not pretty. It is not like I spam heal everybody
(my raid assignment is Topper/mender and burst - So I useally Wack'A'mole when I am not bursthealing to mend my eyes)
So when I read the blue about people not needing to be at 100% I thought - Well are we supposed to stand there until they take further damage and need some healing, because in my opinion that sounds plain boring.
They mention that they want you to use the best spell as possible instead of just using one. Well as priest that is all I/we do ; With all our tools, we constantly use different spells to maximize our utility. ( and how would they make a holy Pally choose between FoH/HL/HS more than they do already ... Oh wait.. But I think you get the point) or are we going to spam the raid/ah until it is topped up, though the idea of spamming is flawed on beforehand because of blue mana_regen_warnings.
Am I the only one thinking this ? and what do you think about the Lesser healing more stamina idea.
