As a Diligence Shaman you are a dual purpose character. You are first and foremost a dps class. What this means is you need to be able to slow the mobs, maximize melee dps output, and be prepared to inflict maximum damage on those mobs when and where it is appropriate. If you are getting summoned or having the mob charging after you are going to wipe the raid. Know your aggro and know what and when is too much.

You are also a priest class, that means you are a healer. Your heals are not as powerful as a cleric but they do not fall short in the long run. On raids you will be expected to keep your group alive as well as maximize dps, not just one or the other. In some groups you may be the only healer in the group, you will need to learn how to manage mana efficiently and maintain maximizing dps.

In addition, you are one of the few classes in the game with buffs that are effective on all classes. This means you will get tells for buffs, use tell windows if you must or learn how to use /RT. This will target the last person to send you a tell. But don't be afraid to inform the person sending you a tell that it will be a minute if the person is asking in the middle of a fight.
