The player base spoke on the issue of hybrids a long time ago: specialize, or GTFO. We told Blizzard we didn't want to pay in DPS for the ability to heal, or healing for the ability to DPS. Well, we've finally hit that endpoint (or at least gotten really, really close.)And not having to give up Silence or Psychic Horror is part of the same thing; just like magi don't do much self healing and depend on instead on utility spells to stay alive, so are hybrids being forced to depend on utility spells instead of a larger healing toolkit.That said, I expect all classes' baseline heals to end up more potent than they are today, since hybrid healing is nerfed quite a bit by losing most of the various heal spells; most of those +x% to all heal abilities that are currently granted by spec choice should just be baked back into the base spell.
