"The druid resto mastery is a bit self defeating though. The time when your HOT does the most healing (i.e. when the target is closest to death) is the time when a HOT is least desirable and you're more likely to go with a direct heal."Yes... if it only applies to new HoTs. If it applies to HoTs that are already ticking away on the target, on the other hand, it is very cool. Suppose you have a Rejuvenation on someone and he's at 100 percent health. Then he misses a cooldown or stands in the fire too long or something and gets hit for a full half his HP. Then the next tick of your Rejuvenation would heal for 150 percent of the usual value (or whatever the coefficient is). That's as soon as the next tick, without even waiting precious centiseconds for a global cooldown to be up. Now consider the same thing with three HoTs ticking away on that same person, or with an attack that brought him down even lower in life. This rewards a Cataclysm resto druid even more than we already are for keeping everyone HOTted up (forces you, basically).I have no idea if this mastery will work like that, but if it does, it doesn't look that bad at all.
