I also have lots of concerns about trees in Cataclysm. With all the druid info available it is strange that I'm not excited about any aspect. I was a bit excited with the way ToL could enhance some of our healing spells but reading your perspective to it just made me more depressed because I really don't see how the advantages it brings will compensate its shortcomings.

Nah, I wouldn't be depressed over it; we really have no idea how this will all work in Cataclysm raids. I'm just interested to see how Blizzard handles the cooldown. In the past I would've assumed that a lot of encounters would be *planned* around when you'd pop your Tree cooldown, but right now that runs straight into the whole 10-man/25-man raid mess where they can't assume a specific healer is even in the raid at all. So the ultimate question is really how the cooldown is going to fit into a raiding scene where, at best, it *has* to be considered optional.Either way, we've healed perfectly well without a huge throughput cooldown for a long time now. HoTs with haste and crit actually scare me the hell of a lot more with their potential to be hugely overpowered.
