You stick to the tank-healing side of the fence, and we'll stick to the raid-healing side of the fence./raspberry

Convenient, isn't it, that that will no longer be an issue with 4.3?

All right, what smartass taught the paladins around here to read and write?Just kidding! Love you guys. Don't let me die.

We were forced to learn so we had some way to complain about lack of AoE heals ^^And @Boobah, yeah I'm damn well looking forward to HR redesign. Let's see if I can convince the shammys to tank heal ;)

Paladins, shaman, & priests are all getting buffs to their healing abilities in a patch where druids are getting nerfed. So, you all can just sit in your corner and wait for your 4.3 buffs.In addition, if your class was getting the SAME nerf in 4.3 that you had received in 4.0 (and was reversed 3 months after due to the fact it made your class get benched when people started raids), you'd really want Blizzard to come up with other ways to address the problem. We had a weaker WG with a 10 second cooldown before. It didn't work. Doing the same thing twice and expecting a different result the second time is stupid at best.

Also, druids don't have great tank healing tools (my tank healing on Rag is a liability with having to spend 3 GCD's re-applying lifebloom after every tank swap). We don't have any on-demand multi-target spell. All of the druid multi-target heals have cooldowns. We supplement that with a single-target HOT, but if you think about it: druids & paladins have both had to rely on single-target spells for raid healing with medium to long cooldowns on our AOE heals that limit how often we can cast them. While you get your on-demand AOE heal with no cooldown, you should be asking yourself: WHY did Blizzard need to give you one, and why don't druids need one, too?

Lissanna: "my tank healing on Rag is a liability with having to spend 3 GCD's re-applying lifebloom after every tank swap" Then don't do that! There's nothing important about having all three stacks up any more. I find there's plenty of time to manage Lifebloom if I don't stress about how many stacks are up. I also tend to move lifebloom over to the next tank every sulfuras smash (tanks don't take damage then) rather than every tank swap.
