The key argument here for giving resto druids a defensive cooldown is that we do not have ANY abilities, talents, glyphs, etc. that can reduce the damage a target is taking. E.g. Inspiration and its Resto Shaman equivalent.Resto druids have their burst heal Swiftmend, which is comparable to Holy Word: Serenity and Riptide/Holy Shock (if the cooldown was scaled up, the healing would be as well). We also have Tree of Life, but that does nothing to reduce damage or reduce our mana consumption (it in fact murders our mana; if you take the route of LB spam and Regrowth on OoC, it doesn't increase your healing).So yes, resto druids would benefit from having a defensive cooldown that reduces damage; I personally hope that it won't change barkskin as that is an important spell for us but I would take the trade-off.
