If one can't reach 2030 to acquire the pvp LHW totems what would be the next best option? Totem of the Plains - Item - World of Warcraft or Totem of the Thunderhead - Item - World of Warcraft still worthwhile? Or am I missing something that's hands down better from WoTLk?
owns the if you happen to still have it.

Unless I'm missing something, it's only a 1 spell power difference which isn't really enough to say it "owns" the blue version more shamans are likely to have.

Int is the best all around stat for any shaman healer. You want to gem for int more or less regardless of your playstyle as long as you have any concerns about mana. 100 Int grants (assuming BoK):
- 1815 increase in your mana pool
- 20.4 mp5 from replenishment with a 90% uptime
- 7.25 mp5 from Mana Tide on cooldown (435 mana per tide)
- 36.3 SP to heals
- .726% crit
Overall very good stuff. I am, however, a bit confused at the 100 int = 36.3 SP to heals. Currently the talent (Nature's Blessing I believe) shows 'Increases healing by an amount equal to 15% of your Int", or somesuch. With kings that would be 16.5%. I looked through this thread pretty carefully to see if I'd missed anything, but I am human and therefore make errors. I am not normally resto - but spec into it as needed, and I recall *thinking* it was 33% ... has it changed since this was written, or am I missing something else?

Patch 3.0.2 changed Nature's Blessing from 10/20/30% Bonus Healing to 5/10/15% Spell Power in keeping with the unification of spell damage/healing.
The TTT has it different, and (I think) correct:
1) Ancestral Knowledge (AK) now affects Intellect so each point of Intellect is really 1.1
2) Shaman now have talents that boost crits or proc on crits
3) Nature's Blessing converts up to 15% of your Intellect into Spellpower
4) Mana restored from Mana Tide is based on your maximum mana
5) Replenishment is based on your maximum mana
10 Intellect = 6 mp5 if you have a 5-minute fight with Mana Tide and 100% uptime from Replenishment.
10 Intellect also gives 3.3 crit rating and 1.8 spell power
So, (100 Int * (10% From BoK + 10% from Ancestral Knowledge)) * 15% conversion rate from Nature's Blessing = 18 SP
