I'm having trouble getting as high up on healing as i'd want to. I started playing a priest about 1 week prior to Cataclysm release and last time i played one was in vanilla up to 60 as shadow, so i believe part of the reason i'm not performing up to par is lacking sheer experience, but that can't be the only reason i'm not doing so well. I have _very_ extensive healing experience on my restoration shaman (bleeding edge raiding throughout entire TBC), but for some reason i'm struggeling performing as well with a priest (No i don't mean meters, i mean generally compared to other players with the same spec)
Below you'll find my armory (EU) link and a link to my guilds' World of Log page. Before you do, these are the things i believe are making me heal a bit worse than i could;
- I Raidlead, so combined with low play experience as a holy priest it is destroying my concentration/focus some times. It's something i need to work on, i know, but if you have any tips i'd appreciate it.
- My latency isn't the best; i'm around 150-200ms generally, i suppose that has a slight impact too?
- My gear might not be completely optimized, but i believe it's very close to (except for the hit boots)
- I've noticed i need to get better on when to use Binding Heal and when to use Prayer of Mending. I generally use the direct heal spells instead of those spell.. So that's a possible Healing efficiency flaw right there.
Also worth noting. I've reforged to haste because i wanted to see how my healing was. I don't know if i've just gotten better since last time we did Halfus or what happened, but my HPS was higher after i reforged more into haste. Do note that my WoL tracker stopped early in our last run without me noticing so the only reliable data is Halfus.

I considered myself a pretty good healer back in the TBC days. And although i've not raided much (and definetely not healed since then) up until the release of Cataclysm, i'm left wondering what it is i'm doing that is fundamentally wrong.
