If you play with a mage, a ww monk, or better yet in this patch, a feral, you can afford to go straight mastery because of their crit buff.  The healing output you get from playing with these classes and going full mastery makes them almost a must have as a Resto Shaman this patch, ferals especially.

If you are not playing with any of those classes, that 20% crit is a must to obtain.

So I went all out crit. Reforge, Gems, etc. Up to 22.5% chance so far.

I was originally planning on Int until I realized that when I crit, people get topped off anyways so why not try to increase the chance of that happening instead of increasing overheal. I haven't gotten any serious play, but at 2k-2.2k it's worked really well. The proc we get from crits makes healing through DoTs very easy, and I've been saved having to use CDs many times because I simply got lucky crits.

The only other gemming I'd consider now is resil. 11%+ damage reduction is still pretty big.

I'm gemming full crit, im around 26% unbuffed.
We get 30% more heal from crits to a low hp party member.
Everything scales well with crit for shamans imo.
