And so it was said by the furious crab..."Druids had it good in PvP healing for 2 seasons. Now they are crap. This is unbalanced. To be truly balanced I must make them completely impotent. Hmmm while I am at it lets make PVE crappier as well. Druids only think they are HOT healers. It is my decree they become pallidans in leather!! We didn't spend that 5 minutes thinking up Nourish that you TRAIN (nb not spec into) for nothing. I thought it up. Goddam you druids will use it.Okies Lifebloom....NERF IT TO THE GROUND BABY"And so it was done.In response to this nerf we got 3 fanbois liking it, 1 attempting (poorly) to justify it sort of, Lissandra I am looking at you, and a class that went fom healing with multiple hots reduced to somehow (if you are terribad) guessing 7-10 seconds in the future that a bloom is needed to warrant casting the spell. Now we will merely cast a few hots to benefit nourish.Completely altered the playstyle overnight. O well what the crab wants he gets. PvP is dead for trees, completely impossible now. PVE lost its flavour.We will survive and do ok but the "fun" is gone for me.And don't get me started on bears. Sigh....homogenisation/balance. I want to feel different not just look it.

While I do disagree with any malicious intent from GC himself, I do mourn the slow change from HoT'er towards a more reactive healer. Since I am playing from over the pond, the HoT's gave me a viability in raids, with ping not playing -such- a big role. But now with those changes it will make it a lot harder on me, which I am, of course, not exactly happy about.Plus, I quite enjoyed HoT casting, not really the Priest/Paladin route they go with us now. :/
