Don't double post, edit your first post. I merged them.
5 Healers? Is the idea there that your boosted raid dps means fewer marks anyway? I think the spiky tank damage on swaps (while predictable) might be down to tanks slacking on taunts and eating a marked swing or two.
Also- aye, I'm primarily conserving mana big time at the till the first mark, but after that I end up having to really up my throughput for the rest of the encounter since the amount of help I get on the mark will swiftly thin out. It's mostly just beacon and the odd HoT or incidental chain heal etc.
