It's pretty clear that shamans are the best healer right now, but while playing arena on all of my characters, I've never really cared which healer we play against. Definitely not enough of a problem to whine on forums about.
<-- plays with shaman
Basically this. Even when I play terrible scleave on my paladin I would rather play against a resto shaman than any other healer. Shamans cant do anything but shock and try to hex, against priest teams I have to run from the priest all game in a futile attempt to not get feared on cd, and against druid teams I have to always be losing the druid chasing me with cyclones. Certain comps are just incredibly strong with resto shamans, but thats mostly because of the control they bring along with every class having too much instant cc, those comps also tend to work with other healers just fine.
The simplest thing they could do to fix shaman healing is revert the 15% healing buff or make it only function in pve, and nerf cleansing waters. Not adding spirit link totem in its ridiculous broken state would be cool too but that isnt likely knowing blizzard.
