Resto druid already has the ultimate tank-save ability. It's called battle rez. I'd like to see Blizz resist the temptation to give every healing class more or less the same abilities. It adds to the fun of the game to have the kind of class diversity that result in sometimes radically different approaches to accomplish the same task (e.g., raid healing) .

By the time you battle res the tank, the mage and rogue bit the dust and the mob just turned towards you...At level 85 its a split-second decision: if the tank dies it means I'm furiously healing the rest of the group - probably going oom- and looking for the 2 second window where I can stop healing in order to cast Rebirth. Most of the time it ends in a wipe, unless the dps are really good and can kite/evasion/offtank.By the way: aren't DKs rumoured to receive a battle res ability?

Yeah, getting the tank back on his/her feet after DYING is, by its very definition, NOT a tank-SAVING ability. It's not an "oh-&$(#" button, it's a "post-&*#$" button. Who wants to bring that to a raid, when you can avoid the &%($ in the first place?If your tank bites it, rezzing, rebuffing, and topping off said tank and getting the tank back on the boss/adds (assuming taunting is possible), is HARDLY a desirable option.

Also Soul stone, and Shaman rez are inevitably going to get turned into battle rez.I run kitty/bear hybrid spec so if the tank dies I am normally too busy tanking the boss to battle rez.
