This is rather random, but has anyone else noticed/thought of the following implications: Moonkin form states that it cannot cast healing spells in moonkin form. There is no such restriction stated on either Cat or Bear from, thus far. The balance tree shares the same 400% passive mana increase as the restoration tree. There is no other way, supposedly, to increase the size of your mana pool--therefore Bears and Cats are limited in healing output by mana pool size. Other than resto, every tree is limited to rejuvenation and healing touch and whichever healing talent you choose out of Tier 2. Also noted is the possibility that Guardians will be able to access Consecration through Symbiosis which would be almost worthless if you had to leave Bear form to cast it. Is it too much to hope for that we may be able to cast some of these spells while we are in Cat and Bear form?

The way I understood the explanation of symbiosis is similar to Dark Intent/Focus Magic in that you cast it on your target prior to entering combat, then you don't really have to leave your combat form to do the ability. Just the bear will consecrate, the moonkin will have mirror image moonkins, etc.

@ TanyaSorry, I tend to write vaguely at times :-( I read how the spell is intended to work thus far, I got the information about Consecration from that blue post also. Plain and simple without trying to lead with the aforementioned stuff... Moonkin seems like they won't be able to cast healing spells in form because they have the mana, regen w/ eclipse and whatnot to make it overpowered. Cats and Bears are limited by mana pool size. If a Bear can cast Consecrate and in form; why would they not be able to cast rejuv and HT in form and gain the same benefits that the other hybrid classes exhibit... ie being able to hardcast healing spells in which ever spec (form for us) they are in? I'm just wondering if anyone else thinks this is viable based on the information/lack of information provided by the description of the newly posted druid forms thus far.
