I play a Resto shaman in PvE only (I dislike pvp) and I am extremely sad to see cleansing totem go. I don't think dispelling is fun and I don't see why blizzard thinks that it will be. Call me crazy but without many HOTs, I always get annoyed that I have to stop casting heals for dispels. Especially since I seem to have a hard time (especially in the default UI) seeing those curses, diseases, and such. One of the things I likes about the Shaman was that I had a totem to help me with this sort of thing.RIP Cleansing Totem. I think this "make healing fun" is only going to hurt people who enjoy healing now.

I think the point to remove fire and forget dispelling as well as situations which make fire and forget so necessary. Think less mass debuffs and more targeted debuffs that require diagnosis and dispelling. Something more like a single player or small group of players taking some sort of massive damage or cause a massive problem unless the debuff is removed.

your right the default UI is so bad at displaying diseases etc on players in your Raid etc but i can recomend addons like Decurse there was a reason for thoes addons to be created in first places.i mean whats the odds i know what players got a Curse on them or not in a 40man raid? i just wish Blizzard could take a look at some of the addons for decursing and showing it the same way on the default screen (IE) if you can cure the debuff the player frame goes purple or greenish that way you whould know.

The changes are going to make it so that any leveling group will require a paladin healer to get rid of the poison and diseases - the most common afflictions faced with leveling. So much for finding groups as a shaman healer in the future. Purge = extremely situational, used maybe once per 5 dungeon runs. Remove curse = Mage conflict brewing... better to let them remove it anyway and keep healing. Golly went from useful to useless....
