Pretty cool aticle! I like where you are going with this.There is one misconception that many people have about Druids and HoTs that I would like to address.Often, a Tree Druid gets assigned a single heal target on boss fights. This is not optimal. The thing about a Tree is that they are not the greatest single target healers. This is because their healing strength lies in HoTs, not single target direct heals.Where Trees are amazing is multpile target HoTs. And the Hots stack of course. Imagine 3 tanks and 3 Trees. Each Tree is assigned to a single tank. Their effectiveness is marginal. Instead, if each of the 3 Trees is assigned to keep HoTs on all 3 tanks, the Trees become amazing. 3 triple LifeBloom stacks and 3 Rejuvs... on each of the 3 tanks! Its incredibly powerful.Put another way, single Tree healing a single target: Use another class, its a waste. Multiple Trees healing multiple targets: Amazing!Trees are also incredible for healing up the raid, the non-tanks. A single Tree can top off a whole lot of people in a short time, and do it without burning much mana.Go go Trees!

I think there's a lot of pigeon-holing that goes on with healers, especially since it takes time to learn about the classes you haven't personally played. Next week's article will probably cover common misconceptions that people swear up and down are the truth.
