Jul 23rd 2011 7:12PM that is more a function of the other team failing than anything else, seeing an eq cast in pvp is a big bright interupt me sign, magma totem does that job much better with no cast time and no cooldown

Patch 4.2: Changes made to tier 12 set bonuses {WoW}

May 13th 2011 12:06PM This so much. Were already weak for non-stacked aoe healing and incredibly strong when stacked, in what way is it a good idea to increase the discrepency. I haven't been happy the raid format my friends chose,and therefore I am raiding feels like it gimps me, but to have a 4 piece that reinforces that seperation, do not want.

Totem Talk: Totems and heroics in Cataclysm {WoW}

Sep 28th 2010 4:39PM I think you are correct about MT and the very low actual returns in combat. Don't forget you need to re-drop your water totem afterwords as well, which even further decreases the functional return. Looking at the pic and squinting it seems he has 66k mana, which makes it around a 4.5% return on mana every 3 minutes, or 7.5% every 5 minutes to directly compare it to MT on live. This is clearly a significant nerf, and unless other healers regen mechanics are changes to spirit instead of % mana this could be debilitating for balancing healer longevity in early raid tiers. Factor in a totem redrop ~1k mana iirc and it changes to 3% every 3 minutes or 5% every 5 minutes.

to be fair resto shaman longevity does seem to be better than any of the other healers on beta right now, so if nothing changes it will probably be fine, but if other healers base efficiency is brought up to shaman levels and keeps their mana return cooldowns, which GC claims encounters will be balanced around using on ones self, this could prove problematic.
