    Mana control in arena.

    IT seems like I run out of mana so fast in arena I can play it slow try not to use much mana but when either me or my partner are taking so much damage I have toshield penance renew pom then spam flash and my mana goes bye bye if I burst I even pop power infusion during a burst so the mana will cost less and if it fails my mana is gone and by that time both the healer and dps get on me so I'll die if I try to offensive dispel or defensive dispel It always goes me getting everything but the thing I want and when there is only that left sometimes it doesn't work I'm spell pen cap'd and hit cap'd can anyone help me?

    Do you just do the games once a week for points with a random person from trade? If so you could always find someone to do them with weekly, that way you don't have to train everybody

    Use shadow fiend and hymn early, that way if its a long fight they'll be up again when you need them, use inner focus a lot, drink whenevr you have the opportunity, try making use of lifegrip to get your dps out of heavy damage situations. But yeah if your partners bad theres not much you can do.

    Gear wise you have too much hit, you only need 4% for pvp, reforge everything you have to spirit, get heart song, enchant everything, try a mana regen trinket like darkmoon card: tsunami or Core of Ripeness.

    I'm trying to find someone for a longer arena partner so we can get high but it seems like anyone decent and everyone else fails to learn or listen.

    Those Enchants result in slightly more throughput and thus better heals, lesser heals needed, more mana in the end. Didnt want to point that out in the first place but it seemed necessary.

    I dunno about you, but if I was looking for someone who was similarly skilled to me who I wouldn't need to carry, and saw them with half their gear unenchanted, I'd straight out say "fuck off". If you aren't going to put the effort into your character to optimize (within reason, I'm not saying get power torrent on a blue weapon), then you can't really criticize others for following by your example.

    On a more specific note - if you are having to spam flash heal on your partner and you're not facing double dps, something is going wrong, and most likely one of these:
    1. Your partner does not have enough pvp gear, and/or like you, has not enchanted/gemmed it
    2. Your partner is not providing enough counter pressure or cc
    3. (Probably most likely) You are not peeling for your partner. This means using Psychic Scream pretty much on cooldown (preferably on both targets). Another way is mana burning the opposing healer, forcing him to either take up a defensive position, or his partner to stop you, thus potentially relieving pressure from your partner. (Don't be stupid about this "someone on the internet said if i mana burn them, you wont die", make sure your partner is topped up and/or in a good position)

    Come back complaining when you are fully gear'd with tsunami, then we can have a talk.

    first off there is no way your carrying anyone with gear like yours. Second its not carrying if your the healer. Your job is to keep the team going. Your spirit is low, your int is low, you have no haste or mastery. All of this leads to you using more mana for using very little heals. fix your stats and you fix your problem.

    I can't stand the people who can't get anywhere and claim it's other people. If you're going through loads of people, and not getting anywhere, you're the constant factor. Stop expecting more from people when you're not willing to work on your own character. I certainly wouldn't play with someone geared like you, or with your attitude.
