Lifebloom is still a very useful healing spell for people who used it back in the day. A lot of resto druids on my server use it as their main spell, and get a ton of mana back with it. However, the main reason we don't see it in raids, in my opinion, is because HoTs don't work well when healing with other classes. After awhile I realized that if I wanted to be an efficient healer, I couldn't use Lifebloom for raid healing, and started using Regrowth for raid healing. I don't use anymore mana than I need to just the same, and everyone gets healed. It's hard to do HoT raid healing with priests, shamans, etc just because they use flash heal/chain heal spells to heal the raid up...and that's wasted mana for all those HotS you just casted. So I use Lifebloom and Rejuvenation mostly for tank healing, usually letting Lifebloom time out on longer fights for mana back. And like I said, Regrowth is useful for raid healing, and the glyph of Regrowth is godly as well as you boost that Regrowth spam amount. In conclusion, Lifebloom isn't complicated or less than it was just because of the mana cost increase. Lifebloom isn't really a good raid healer anyways. The best use is stacking it on the tank, then letting it boom for mana back. It takes about 1.5 seconds if you're specced into Gift of the Earthmother to stack Lifebloom back up to full anyways. I can practically solo heal Patchwerk in mostly T7 with this method, and my mana doesn't go below 50%, as I can stop casting at times and my mana regenerates.
