And dont forget Shroud of Saints which gives refresh..
Yea I am not new to healing I was a career whm in ffxi.
We also had a bard with refresh.
But I threw three cure3 on the guy and he still died and he blamed me for not keeping up cures on him... He was just getting hit for too much and he was horrible. He never kept the mobs facing away from us so there I am healing up everyone. The guy was fighting with one of the dd's the whole way. ..This last run was a breeze, I did nothing different and most dungeons have been a breeze.
Were you using cure3 to heal the tank? I almost never use cure3 since it is an aoe cure with a Cure Potency of 550. Cure2 is the single target cure with Cure Potency of 650. I usually just Stoneskin, regen, cure1 and use cure2 when it procs or if the tanks health is sneaking low. Divine Seal when I need 30% more healing magic potency and Presence of Mind when I need some fast cures. I toss out Benediction when it would take more more than 2 cure2 to almost top them off. There is a lot of AOE damage in that fight so I usually Medica/Medica II unless cure3 procs.
It's certainly sounds like you may have had a poor tank but there are a lot more tools for a whm than regen and cure3.
