    Nobody is perfect at this game, nor anywhere in their life. Those who think so are wrong. This post is a great refresh for anyone. Just take what you want, and leave the rest .

    I do know a couple of players in my guild who started in Wrath and are great at Cata.

    Tanks, healers, DPSers. And I know a couple of people who still suck after playing since Vanilla or BC.

    There are good and bad from every "generation". No need to discriminate on players who started in one specific expansion.

    But I do enjoy the OP's post. Quite insightful.
    If you don't mind, I want to steal it (give credit of course to you) and go post it up on my guild's site?

    I would also like to agree with the "Cleanse" portion of your post. Although I'm new to healing (been a mage since late Vanilla and just re-rolled Shaman for heals/enhancement spec - which is more awesome than fire or arcane imo) I have noticed that many other healers don't dispel or decurse debuffs from players. Nor do other players, like DPS, with these abilities as well.

    I always cleanse whenever a magic/curse debuff is put up even when DPSing. But especially when healing. I'd rather get rid of the source of the damage before it does even greater damage, which means more heals, which means more mana wasted on something that could've been removed in the first place.

    Nice post. I came in Wotlk so I will be sure to follow this even though ive got a WAY better understanding so far as cataclysm was released 1-2months ago. Thanks much appreciated :P

    Very awesome post. Educated me on a few things I seriously didn't know.
    There are no WoW killers, only WoW alternatives.

    I really like #7 in the Damage Dealers section. Just last night my wife, running her draenei shaman as enhancement, was in a 5 man when the tank went down and just a few seconds later the healer died as well. Without missing a beat, my wife popped her earth elemental to tank and she picked up heals. They downed the boss.

    This is an extreme example but it proves that one player stepping up can be the difference in a wipe or successful encounter.

    Am new to Healing for Cata Heroics.
    Just got to the ilevel 329 and it can be very difficult. So have been slowly working on getting to 346.
    Mostly since justice points are easy to get now.
    Received a bunch of negativity (people telling me to jump off cliffs for example).
    Just learned about "Set focus" a couple weeks ago, so am always using it on tank.
    Tried out Deadly Boss, and it does give hints on what to do and the CD of abilities.

    Would the 352 blue pvp gear be viable? With it's ability and int boosting.
    The Set Bonuses seem nicer then some of the 346 gear from Justice points, Cata rep and Heroic drops.
    Though the 352 gear isn't on the pre-raid gear list caused some concern.

    Any more Healing hints?
    Hoping to get more confidence in normal before going back to Heroics.

    90% of these problems could be solved with one technique: uninstall your dps meter. If everyone weren't competing for dps, the only remaining measure of success would be... success. DPS would be more willing to CC, interrupt, stun, battle rez, innervate, dispel, not pull aggro, etc. It's amazing how much better the team does when they're working together rather than against each other.

    its so true .. made me play at lot better when i made recount vanish in combat and then show again when the fight was done. cause its good to see how good u are doing dps-wise, but not during combat

    I've noticed that your dps improves when you don't have it running or hidden in combat as well. You are more focused on your rotation and what is going on around you than you are on that stupid meter. Besides who cares if you know that you're pulling the top or not. I'm sure the RL is running meters or wowmeters of some sort so they can bleed out those who are not doing their part.

    for me dmg meter only helps me to increase my dps even more cuz i know how well i am doing every second of the fight and i can see how small changes to my gameplay effects my dps while i am doing it
