By and large, things haven't changed too much. You're still a very strong raid healer with Rejuv and Wild Growth and a capable tank healer with Rejuv/Lifebloom/Healing Touch.

As for stats, intellect is now the absolute #1 top stat, period. It outpaces every other stat by at least 2:1 value with one exception, that being if you're near a major haste breakpoint. After that, what stats you stack depends largely on the state of your gear. If you can get to 2005 haste (Extra WG tick) with your gear, then that is very much worth going for. Otherwise getting to 915 haste (Extra Rejuv tick) and then focusing on spirit and/or mastery is a better choice. Every point spent on haste between major breakpoints is almost entirely a waste, there is little benefit to it. Mastery is fairly clumsy right now but is getting much better in 4.2. Spirit isn't neccessarily that awesome either, but more mana is always welcome.

Biggest change you'll notice is that your mana will go a lot faster than it did in Wrath. Making the absolute best of what mana you do have is extremely important now, and that will take a bit of practice. You cannot simply spam Rejuv on everyone anymore, it'll take a bit more thought than that nowadays.

If you have any more specific resto questions or questions relating to certain fights, feel free to ask. ;)
