And who says it's the best way to help your raid? The meters? Someone here? I honestly want to know how you got that impression. Are people really that bent on keeping their shield spamming habits even if it means switching specs to do it?? Do people actually look at the meters? Do they realize all this does is shift effective HPS from other healers to the one doing the shield spamming? Do you think the other healers on your raid team can't heal well enough and that's why you need to spam shields?? I'm just curious as to why some people seem so intent on maintaining the ability to spam shields regardless of spec.
