I feel my healing as resto has been buffed. The nerf on lifebloom is minimal now that my bonus healing is been buffed by a lot. Before the patch, I had 2203 healing. Now, I have 1319 healing buffed (which at the .532 modifier of pre-patch, would sit at around 2479ish). Also, since like many other restos, stacking all that spirit was not for nil. Yes, lifebloom and mana efficiency may be lower, however before I felt unstoppable in terms of speed due to the fact Id regen my lifeblooms with two seconds in casting. That said, yes, I may actually get lower then 70% mana now on fights but typically I can still share my innervate (cant wait for the glyph!). I used to be top 3 in raids such as SSC/Tk and Hyjal. Now, ive been seeing top 3 still. Nothing for me has changed. Now, go into 10 man raids and im the only raid healer along with OT, I typically hit first by far. Ive actually ran with two other healers in places like ZA/Kara multiple times now and ive been getting about 45% every time with the other two both combined to the same percentages (now, healing meters are off imo, but numbers that far cant be that off). Wild Growth is amazing (casting them on multiple targets creates a huge effect, like casting them on several different casters and melee to provide almost entire raid healing in seconds), along with the glyph of rejuv and in the future lifebloom stacking. In the end, I have high hopes for level 80 raiding. It looks like spellpower will be hitting into 2k and most gear will have a ton of spirit and haste. 10 second lifeblooms in the future does have good raid healing potential, however I have in the past counted on them blooming without restacks (ie rolling them on people on ZA's Hex Lord before spirit bolts).
