That's my armory.
Basically here's the thing, I know my role is more of a support healer and I'm ok with that. I just cant shake the feeling that I should be performing better than I am right now. I know my gear doesn't completely fit into the spectrum of the ideal holy setup, but nonetheless I'm confident I'm pretty ridiculously geared. Some pieces are in place because of the occasional disc I would swap to on certain fights which is no longer needed. I recently replaced sp/int gems with sp/haste. Main reason, my crit is stupid high right now, somewhere around 32% give or take self buffed. My haste is a little low, around 12.5% self buffed. Thus why I gemmed haste. Dropped my mana pool by about 3k and yet I have absolutely ZERO mana issues. I couldn't run low on mana if I tried, and believe me I try. I am just over 4k sp raid buffed, so any amount more mixed with my crit and I'm feeling like it would be wasted on overheal.
So here's the thing. Pulling 4-5k hps is common in icc if I step it up, but more frequently is 3.5-4k. For the record on fights like blood queen and fester I can push over 7k hps. I know part of that is the skill of my raid members avoiding damage and there just not being a need for me to heal. But overall and on most boss fights, two much less geared resto druids and one of our holy pally's(also less geared) can out heal the crap outta me. Even our less geared resto shaman can top me every once in awhile. In both hps and overall healing done. Yes I usually have less overhealing, but it isn't by much, especially with the somewhat sudden rise in my crit %. So I've come to the conclusion that I'm doing something wrong. Can you guys point me in the right direction of proper healing techniques or if anything, ease my mind on this whole thing? I am currently geared the 4th ranked holy priest on one of the most populated server's Mal'Ganis, but don't feel even close to the type of performer I feel I should be. I don't know it all, but I've done A LOT of research and dedicated a lot of time to trying different spec's, different healing styles and any other form of experimentation, not to mention successfully raided the past 6 months straight. So I'd like to say I have a handle on what I'm doing, at least to the point of not being a complete window licker. This is driving me nuts, please help!!!
Thanks in advance.
