Penance – Burst heal, should be used on tank or low health group member

Prayer of Mending – Heal that bounces multiple times before it runs out and Heals on damage taken

Flash Heal – Most used Raw Heal as it’s affected by talents

Binding Heal - Heals you and your target, heavy mana cost though

Prayer of Healing – Only actual Raid Heal, useful when 3 people in group take damage
