re Thorns: as a balance druid who's buffed tanks of all classes from MC to Sunwell (and took brambles to maximise its weak return) your focus is a bit 'narrow' when having to "depend on someone else to refresh it constantly" seeing as three out of four tanks have never had an alternative option. With the bloating in Balance talent tree I've had to drop brambles and the recipients spellpower being the deciding factor on its damage I'd effectively stopped giving thorns to anyone in Naxx (just wasn't worth the cast) this change means even untalented I can go back to my 10 minute refreshing of it on any tank- and of course the constant complaining about its short duration compared to other buffs :).Thorns has always been a balance buff *for* tanks in PVE, with ferals self buffing as the weaker option. 3.1 just fixes an anomaly that came into being at the beinging of WOTLK when Blizz got the spellpower the 'wrong' way round and made a feral self buff as good/bad/indifferent for tanks as the balance one
