OP: The language you use is the same language everyone uses to argue against Lightwell, and Blizzard has already responded to it. They do not intend to implement the ToC Lightwell, as they want to keep the character interaction as an aspect to it. Therefore ToC's lightwell is not a fix. If it doesn't involve player interaction, it's not Lightwell. That's why when I wrote my lightwell proposals in the older article I linked - I talked about making Lightwell something you wanted to click. Why does lightwell have to heal, I asked? Why can't it buff or res a player or players? But again, those are proposals I wrote that still stand alongside my feelings that lightwell is good in the hands of the right people. My raid team is always able to find uses for it if they know I have it.The "boring talents no one likes" you refer to were not made to reference spells like Lightwell, but rather spells that buff damage or healing by x percentage. I talk about my thoughts on that in the disc post.Lightwell may find a home in Cata, as Blizzard has said they want the new game to be slower and reward players for how good they are at strategy. There are a lot of area oriented talents in all the class previews, and I think Lightwell will fit in nicely with that.Finally, my dedication to writing this article has no connection to my opinion on Lightwell, other than you recently forcing the ideas together into an illogical conclusion in your comment. It's logic is comparable to this statement: "She likes George Orwell, therefore she didn't take this report on the Spainish Revolution seriously." To this I will politely "hmph!" and tip toe back to my alabaster pedestal.Eturyu: I could definitely make a poll like that, though I don't really need a poll to know I am in the minority on this one. Not to mention, it's hard to use lightwell if you're not specced into it, so the numbers wouldn't be very accurate. That's why I support Blizzard having us take it - if we always have it we'll find places to play with it since we might as well use it if we have it.I could answer C though =) the fight where we used it most was HM General Vezax, followed by Malygos. Soakers used it on ToGC twins. ICC I have been disc the whole time, so I can't offer more recent places to use it. It has a lot of PvP utility too, since you can click it while incapacitated/feared/ etc.I have held back on doing a Lightwell article for sometime now, but perhaps it is about time.
