@Vlatch:I'll address both your points:a. But they changed their mind so it is a non-issue. The down ranking change might lead to more reliance on expensive pot chugging.b. Changing from the current +healing to spell power has no effect on our desire to stack it. The +healing number will be lower but it's effect will be higher to compensate. No change on this front. A non-issue.In regards to your comments about adapt or die... Obviously. I even stated the options we have to compensate for this. I then stated that for me personally healing with the new mechanics will be less fun. I currently love the way shaman healing is. Incoming damage feels like a puzzle I have to solve with various size heals / global cooldowns. Without down ranking, the number of pieces I get to choose from becomes more limited, and for me less fun (I love the stress and complexity of managing my mana pool).Hope for healers like me isn't lost yet. I just saw a blue post about Blizzard's intention to introduce lower mana cost lesser heals if needed to combat the removal of lesser ranks. As long as I can have a lesser chain heal, I'll have enough puzzle pieces to enjoy healing. With all the buffs to lesser healing wave/healing wave we shamans seem to have more reason to use them now (and hence even more puzzle pieces to choose from).
