Basic healing rotation:
Healing a tank:
Prayer of Mending → Renew → Binding Heal
When you’re at full health and the tank doesn’t get too much incoming damage, instead of using Binding Heal, you can use Flash Heal until you reach 2 stacks of Serendipity
When things get really scary:
Open up with Guardian Spirit and then use the standard tank-healing rotation
