THe thing is though, druids rarely if ever use anything but 3 of those heals.In an average raid fight, my top three healing abilities in order are: Rejuv, Wild Growth, Swiftmend.Nourish, Regrowth and Lifebloom are great for tank healing, but be honest, how often does a druid ever get set to tank heal? Healing Touch is absolutely worthless nowadays thanks to Nourish being faster, more efficient, and healing for the same/more with all hots up. The ONLY time I use HT is with my NS+HT macro if you need that heal NOW. And of course, there's Antiquit--- er, Tranquility, which heals the party and is on a long cooldown.I think, before they give druids new heals, they need to make sure we actively use all the heals we HAVE. In today's environment, they could conceivably give Holy Pallies five more nice heals. They'd still only ever use Holy Light.While a Chain Heal type ability would be undoubtedly nice, that's the Shaman's signature ability. I don't see any class ever being given something too similar to that... I think our Holy Light splash is the best we're gonna see.Something I'd really like to see is Paladins being given a hot. I know, I know, there's the FoL lol-hot, but I mean a real hot we can cast at will. Make it weak, make it expensive, give it a cast time, I don't care... just give us a damned hot already. It's the one thing we're mising from our healing arsenal that every other healing class has.The way I see it, in Cataclysm, heals are being broken down like this:Small, quick heal.Medium, all-purpose heal.Big, expensive heal.Group heal.Hot.Instant/emergency healClass-specific/ "flavor" heal.Paladins are the only class missing a hot. Even shamans got a hot last expansion. Sure it's deep in their resto tree and it has a cooldown, but so what? They got it. It's time. It's time paladins were given a castable hot.
