Downranking is just annoying, so I avoid it at all costs. I won't cry over its demise, if in fact it is a demise.

Then you're not a very good healer. (if you play a healing class).

Healing meters from BT and SWP show that downranking your heals as a Restoration Shaman can improve your performance by a factor 2. Those who don't downrank would end up at around 10% raidhealing, those who do downrank around 20%.It's a skill to anticipate and choose the correct spell to cast.Removing said skill will dumb things down, equalizing every healer and DPS. If you ask me, that takes all the challenge and competition out of the game.

You don't have to downrank to be a good healer. Some people think complication = skill. Downranking provides a minor performance boost, but most often causes excessive mana longevity at the expense of healing effectivity, or excessive overhealing (because of the extra mana + overcompensating amounts of heals).This is a good change. I'm sorry you think you're downranking skills are what makes a good healer. Frankly it's a trivial skill that detracts from the role.
