Earth Shield healing done by Restoration shaman has been reduced by 20%.:|18% Nature's Blessing is just fine though.

That change to Earth Shield makes this Resto shaman sad... 1st blizz buffs us since we "are not in line with other healers" then they nerf the spell that makes us resto...

Considering ES now benefits from our mastery on the PTR, I think this is more of a balancing act than a real nerf. It may have just been too powerful of a passive heal when the tank/target is low on health.

I barely noticed the nerf because im dreaming of even higher GHW crits.

As far as I can tell with changes to healing across the board, Blizzard are trying to make all the healing specs exactly the same.Three heals that are usable - One quick, inefficient heal, one medium heal, and one slow massive heal.And then a bunch of spec-defining spells that they've turned into gimmicks.This clearly makes healing more interesting and appealing.

Earth Shield is pretty overpowered in PvP at the moment, as an instant cast 10 stack of auto-heal. This is why it has been changed, o raiders.

@Magicjamie: No, it was changed because it benefits from Resto Mastery now. If it had mastery + the extra 20% healing, it would be OP.My lowbie ele shaman rejoices! Now I can queue as a healer as an actual healing spec and not be bored to frikin death because I only need to refresh ES. Now I have to occasionally cast Healing Surge as well :rolleyes:
