As a note - the talents been changed again (see MMOchampion: http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=4678.0)so that the healing done to you in cat form is now +10/20% not modified by attack power (Blue post contradicting the patch notes - how unusual ;). This is probably needed since I run in excess of 4k AP and my gear could still be improved.I also took a quick look at the build you linked and its a bit unfocused. Primal tenacity for eg. is primarily a PvP talent. If your focused on PvP then you should also take brutal impact (hell I take it anyways since the extra second of pounce often means death to clothies). Natural Shapeshifter is also far superior to intensity since you should be shifting alot but rarely casting - I would suggest this build:http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=0zZxGGsfboezioVxhzAs you can see - 2 points left over would fit nuturing instincts if thats what you want, or one of the other talents. Since most are 3 pointers you can take the point out of natures grasp and flesh it out fully - but then I just love the one point there cause that talent has saved me more times than I can count.As for Nuturing instincts being any good - the change is unfocused still, despite their good intentions. There simply isn't enough "splash" damage in PvE that 20% more heals is going to be that much of a game breaker. Healers do little more than renew/rejuv me (or I am in the path of a chain heal spammer) as a cat and if I did take enough damage to warrant a full heal you can be guaranteed I will be shifting out to take a pot or HS (or in my case take advantage of 2piece T5 bonus) making the talent null and void anyways - unless of course they are going to allow me to pot in forms :).This part could be quite useful in PvP but a druid at their full potential doesn't stay in one form for long regardless, making the bonus healing spotty at best.The second part is nice but its not PvE orientated. If your chucking on healing gear to heal a 5man, than this talent won't help since its affected by agility which healing gear lacks. This second part seems more PvP orientated to me. It buffs my healing which increases survivability, but since feral healing is lackluster at best, I am not sure its better than other talent choices presented (namely fear and stun resist).Still - it has changed numerous times since the PTR came up so it shows they are trying to make it work.
