Mages also have Heroism (Timewarp/Bloodlust). In a 25-man raid, Resto shaman usually only need 1-2 totems, as other classes now bring identical or better buffs. Besides Mana Tide Totem, nothing else is Resto shaman specific.A Druid's Battle Rez is not a defensive CD, and non-Resto Druids bring this to the raid as well. When a fight goes as planned, you shouldn't need to use it at all. This point is invalid as you could just bring boomkin or feral druids if you wanted a Battle Rez and stack Priest/Pally healers because of CDs.The point of this post (and the blue post) is to point out that for guilds doing hard mode encounters, Priest and Pally healers are currently valued above Druid/Shaman healers. This isn't examining class differences, but healing differences between the classes.For most hard mode raid encounters, stacking Priest/Pally healers makes the fights SIGNIFICANTLY easier. 10-man raids only make the difference between healer classes more profound.
