I think the biggest deal to me is the Mortal Strike buff. Healing in PVP is extraordinarily good. I PVP as both a healer and mage, and when I'm healing I feel unstoppable. I can routinely handle 3-4 attackers with ease. As a mage, if there's a single healer in the bunch, it is virtually impossible to kill anyone there. 10% to 25% is a pretty big jump, though. Hopefully they don't make healing feel useless.

I certainly hope they don't make healers "feel useless". But thankfully Blizzard is giving the healing debuff some of it's teeth back. Healers OWN PvP in this expansion. Granted, healers have always played a large role in successful PvP, but in Cata they are the bottom line. I've seen good healers effectively tank 3 or 4 people. In my opinion, healing has scaled extremely well and as a result has become slightly overpowered, particularly in non-organized pvp settings. Giving some bite back to MS, wound poison, etc, is a good move.

Personally, I feel that healing is fairly balanced in an organized pvp environment.I will admit to tanking and healing through far more people than is reasonable in a random bg. However, I can also pretty much assume until proven otherwise: that I will not be cc'd, that I will not be interrupted, that not everyone is focusing on me, and that at least half the people are at least partly in blues.Now swap to organized PVP where people make use of interrupts, stuns, cc, smokebombs, healing debuffs, focused cd's, and are in full gear... it becomes a completely different game.
