This. I'm really struck by how much the spec keeps returning to its historic issues. The druid does very well at pumping out a lot of healing, but it has a very small toolbox for this purpose, and one that arguably hasn't changed much since BC. While this makes it easy to buff or nerf the class' output -- turn that thermostat up on Rejuvenation or Wild Growth -- I don't think it addresses the systemic problems. Blizzard wants choice to be a big part of healing, mostly in the form of a player learning to make the best choice for a given situation, but when you've only got one spell to address a situation, there's not much choice involved. What's that old saying about everything looking like a nail when you're a hammer?Raid damage? Blow WG on cooldown. Not much choice. :/ I'm not a fan of changing a spec just because a new expansion's coming up, but I do think there's a lot of merit to the arguments that WG can't be the druid's only realistic option for AOE healing.
