"It's now crazy efficient, can be casted while moving..."Past tense of cast is cast. Ugh. It's almost as bad as when people say "more funner" or "pasgetti" instead of spaghetti.That pet peeve out of the way, they really should have kept Holy Shock in the Holy Tree. Non healing specs healing on the move seems counter intuitive. All three specs having access to all three basic heals seems to make infinitely more sense.

The difference is that 'casted' is at least a legitimate mistake due mostly to the fact that the verb 'cast' is not common outside of fishing or fantasy, whereas people who say 'more funner' or 'pasgetti' are doing it on purpose for the tone it creates, similar to leetspeak.As for Holy Shock being available to all three specs, I think that has the potential to go a long way in letting paladins engage their raid awareness. Remembering the damage component, it does for example allow a Ret paladin to make the snap decision: "The tanks just switched on Festergut. If I Shock the boss, no one's going to complain - I'm DPS and I'm doing my job. But should I Shock the tank to help the healers out a little?"Granted, a Holy Shock from a Ret paladin won't do a lot. But every now and then you run into situations where a boss does maybe 10 or 11 overkill and the raid wipes. Tiny little things carry the day in those moments.

And the article was written by someone who should be well acquainted with fantasy by now.So besides instant Exorcism procs Rets need another instant nuke?Also, I've never known an Enhancement shaman to waste a Maelstrom proc on a heal--unless it was for himself.My problem is that healing on the run is *power* and should be reserved for the Paladin's Holy spec. Ret already have a way to cast instant heals, and Prot shouldn't need this ability.If we're to go to a 3 heal system (low, med, high) then they should all have a cast time.
