Well I've been resto for awhile now and I enjoy it alot, But I was in ToC a few nights ago and a staff droped (off 10 man twins I think (Horde)) and someone said to take it and try it out. I like it and I seemd to improve a bit. But last night I got called a idiot shaman for useing a staff and not a 1h and shield. I know this would effect me in something like pvp where more armor/res I could get with a shield is better but am I missing something in pve?
So question is, Does it matter if you heal (or dps for that matter) in pve with a staff?

If Staff > 1h + offhand + 25 int then yeah who cares?
No it doesn't. The 1h/shield combination is usually preferred if it offers the same stats as a staff since there are a few situations in which it might be handy (small adds on anub for example) and you can enchant your shield but generally: If the staff beats your 1h+shield (with enchants) in stats then you should be using a staff.
Its true that armour does have SOME small use for a healer, sometimes... i've heard that Faction Champions prioritise lower armour people in order to parallel a PvP environment better.
I play a resto shaman as my main and have been since pre bc. I have also wondered if a staff might do the same job as a 1h and shield. the fact is if the staff gives you a bigger upgrade than the shield and 1h then use it. don't listen to some one who thinks they know it all. what ever helps you do your job better is what you should use.
if the staff is superior than your 1 hand and shield with chants etc, take the staff until you can get a shield and weapon of same status as staff and also better with chants on them etc.
It is okey to use staff, but remember that a shield and one-hander will be better then you get the upgrades over that you had:)
