Conversation from last night:
D: So, how do I know whether or not I can heal a heroic?
Me: You can heal a heroic.
D: But how do I know I'm ready? I just dinged 80.
Me: When you're ready, you know it.
D: Okay, where can I find out what minimum stats I need to be able to pull it off?
Me: Why not just jump in there and find out?
I'm not normally obtuse or intentionally un-helpful… the above responses from me translate loosely into: I have no clue. And I'm surprised that I have no clue. So, while I eventually told D to start with Matticus (knowing that he'd see the link to Plus Heal and jump on it), I'd still like to know for myself. The mechanics have changed so much with Wrath, and I've never been a serious healer on my Priest. So, who's got some advice for healing 80 heroics on a Shaman? Specific talents to pick up, mechanics to perfect, preferred minimum stats… Lay it on me.
