Preforming good in PVE is not just about gear, it is also important that you choose the right spec, that you are using the best spell rotation and that you gem and enchant your gear correctly.
For talent spec, i recommend looking up at some good specs at wowhead, wowwiki and other sites, but you can't really go so much wrong in resto,
For gems you should be stacking Spell Power gems, forget the socket bonus, just throw in red gems, they will increase your healing the most. For totem you will be using Totem of Forest Growth which can be purchased for 15 Emblems of Heroism.

Thank you for reading and good luck raiding.
