Why not make a talent in resto that makes barkskin castsable on friendly targets and increases damage reduction depending on how many HoTs you have on the target?

Unfortunately, Blizzard has to take PVP into account for all of these great ideas.

because they can't give cats & moonkin a tank damage reduction cooldown or you could just bring a boomkin/cat instead of a resto druid.

What if for balancing it for PvP it came at the cost of being dispellable again?

@ Lis. If its a resto talent.... your point is mute.

It's been a long day. >.>I have objections to the many versions of "we'll give up barkskin for our new toy" concessions that people are doing. If blizzard wants to give us a NEW ability, we shouldn't have to trade something for it, we should get it in addition to what we have. Tieing a damage reduction to something like Nature's Swiftness would be an improvement, whereas having to give up the current version of barkskin to get a weaker version we could put on other people makes me /sadface (because it would never be able to go live as strong as it is and on as short of a cooldown if it could be used on other people).

I think that's the beauty of making it provide more damage reduction depending on the number of HoT's on the target. For maximum effect you'd have to use a lot of mana over the duration of the spell to provide any heavy sort damage reduction. Rujuv, LB, Regrowth, and WG all added up are a significant chunk of mana. Essentially what it would do is let you bring a tanks health up from a low level without the fear of him dying before your HoT's can really ramp up.
