I use something similar to this.
When raiding, you'll find that you use Shamanistic Rage a lot. Lets face it, you're planting and re-planting totems, using Stormstrike, Flame Shock, and Earth Shock as much as you can. Naturally, at some point you'll run out of mana. And while the 2.3 change to Water Shield may change this, for now we have to make due (even after 2.3, I'd still say pick up SR). And Shamanistic Rage is a major help.
On average, I earn about 250 mana per proc. If my mana bar is empty, I can pop SR, keep up my DPS rotation list, and still earn back about 70% of my mana.
Think of it like this, its like a free mana pot every two minutes, which means you can save your pot cooldown for an emergency.
Also, Shamans convert Strength to Attack Power at a 2:1 ratio. So for every point of Str you have, you get 2 AP. So if ya can, go for pieces with Strength. You'll also want about 135 hit rating or so, I think, though I'm not sure for certain. Other than that, go for roughly 25% chance to crit, and two slow weapons. Preferably 2.4-2.6 speed. The Runic Hammer
and High Warlord's Cleaver
are both good, and fairly easy to get.
Anyway, ultimately its up to you. ( :

i use a talent build for lvling similar to your enhance/resto builds, its just easier solo'ing like that especially with the heal pushback talent and extended totems.....anyways
