So there goes the bring the player, not the class claim. "A mix of healers...." Their making it near impossible not to oom even in a ten man with geared players. They messed with spirit they messed with mana regen, and now blessing of wisdom stacking with mana stream. There seems to be a boast in healing done, but th effect is bad on PTR. This seems to be the most experimental PTR, testing some crazy concepts.

/sigh. Bring the class and gear not the player. Thanks blizz, appreciate you screwing up 10s for average guilds.

I get the concern about mana (I play a healing druid), but I don't get the "So there goes the bring the player, not the class claim" comment. Why do so many people seem to expect that this meant that 2 prot warriors, 6 resto druids and 17 affliction warlocks was supposed to be a viable raiding group?

Seriously, this issue has been addressed so many times before. http://www.wowinsider.com/2009/03/04/what-they-really-meant-by-bring-the-player-not-the-class/You'll still need a good mix of classes but nowhere near the point of BC's stacking will be needed.

The 'bring the player not the class' change was never meant to mean that you wouldn't have to think about raid composition at all, just that we wouldn't go back to shammy/spriest stacking like in Sunwell. And if you look at it, that's been mostly achieved for 25 mans. not having a resto shammy no longer means you're unable to raid-heal, but it does mean you can't go into raids with 5 holy pallies. Conversely, not having a holy pally in the raid doesn't mean your tank-healing is impossible. As a healer I'm fine with this.The main problem I'd have is this damn replenishment. It just doesn't seem to make sense to balance everything around one overpowered buff, and blizz's blue posts on the subject have not given (imo) a satisfactory answer. With the incoming regen nerf, I really wish they'd take another look at the way they've implemented this, emphasising a handful of specs and the intellect stat for no good reason.
