I am so glad to see this change for shaman, and I am perhaps even more excited that the devs are acknowledging our throughput cooldown deficiency.I can't tell you how often I pound my Nature's Swiftness + Greater Healing Wave macro on a tank that is nearly flat-lining only to see one of two ugly situations unfold:(1) The heal fails to go through because I was just barely too late. Despite hitting my button while the tank was still alive according to my client, the slightest bit of latency (~100 ms) causes the command to be received just too late, and the tank dies. This is really my own fault, but the horrible part is that my NS cd was blown anyway, and I'm simply out of luck.(2) My heal is successful, yet despite having nearly 4700 Intellect and stacking Mastery rating, I barely see my tank's health bar budge. Perhaps incoming damage canceled out my heal and the tank was saved by my cd after all, but contrast this to Lay on Hands. I'll take a 10 minute (7 min with glyph) cd with that kind of power over my 2 minute cd any day.

Druids have the exact same issue. NS barely hits for anything. Swiftmend is nice but hardly a show-stopper, but its short CD means that it is intended to be used alot.
