How good a talent is Ancestral Resolve and should I take it over Cleansing Waters? Is totemic reach really that important (so our paladins can put other auras than devotion or resistance aura), or can I put 2 talents in ancestral swiftness instead (love it for atramedes!)?I had more questions about stats, but I see it's being covered next week, so i'll just be stacking mastery until 4.1 brings the additional buffing! :)

I'll be covering raiding specs more closely as well in the coming weeks, but to answer the question, Ancestral Resolve is a double edged sword. It's a nice talent, and anything that reduces your damage is usually welcomed. However, in light of something like Cleansing Waters, you should take CW. There are a lot of debuffs we will be removing in raid environments, so getting a free heal off of it and reducing the cost of the cleanse is a big deal. Totemic reach is another one in the same category. It's nice, but not at the cost of throughput talents. This may change with patch 4.1 and Spirit Link Totem though, but again we'll go more in depth about that soon.

Uh I think the only raid encounter that takes a massive amount of debuffs I believe is Baradin Hold. So imo cleansing waters is not worth it whereas Ancestral Resolve is awesome. Who doesn't want reduced damage? Double edged sword wth?
