I think you'd have been better off just giving the standard beta response about not worrying about numbers yet since they're not balanced/aren't necessarily what we'll actually be seeing when cata goes live and so on.
You shouldn't worry about the numbers yet. I thought the poster asked a perfectly reasonable question of whether we wanted as much use of the efficient heal as he was doing. I said no. That either means he wasn't healing as well as he could have been, or more likely in this case, the numbers aren't yet tuned correctly.
I really fail to see why you guys thought it would be good design to introduce the 'auto attack' heal to force healers to be spamming 100% of the time. I enjoy healing because it is reactive/triage oriented -- if I wanted to be predictive/spam a rotation I would play DPS.
We don't want healers to be spamming one heal 100% of the time. I'm not sure how you could be following Cataclysm news and think that. The reactive / triage feel is what we're going for. But that means that there needs to be room for weaker heals that you use when nobody is in immediate danger. That's triage -- "Oh, this guy's not going to die in the next few seconds, so a Heal is all he needs."
