I think you may be underestimating the use we got out of Soothe in Cata. I recall using it in a ton of dungeons (though at this point it's been a while so I can't recall which), including the new ZA where it can really help weak tanks survive nomming bears. And maybe my memory's just hazy, but isn't it also usable on Ozruk, one of the most initially infamous bosses of the expansion?Since it seems you don't PvP I guess you would devalue it, but for a while at least we were pretty nasty in PvP, and Soothe was one of the reasons why. Completely neutering Fury (I think? Like I said been a while) Warriors in a single cheap, instant cast while running circles around them (how I miss you instant roots) was great fun.

Yep, Ozruk, Lockmaw, misc trash mobs in a variety of dungeons, including MANY, MANY trash mobs in Stonecore. During the first couple months I spent more time spamming sooth on those mobs than actually healing, because it was more mana efficient to dispel the enrage off the 3+ mobs going crazy than try to heal through that kind of damage. I think people forget how absolutely invaluable these kinds of abilities, like sooth and hibernate, were at the beginning of this expansion. Having a druid and a shaman in your Grim Batol group literally cut down the amount of time it took by like 50%, because you could CC 90% of the mobs that actually hurt in there.
