Each day that the coefficient of plus healing for Lifebloom remains reduced on the Public Test Realms it seems more likely that the nerf will end up going live in patch 2.4. I am not looking forward to some future Tuesday when I will get home and fire up WoW only to be met with the Patch Loading screen, meaning that my viability in raids will be significantly reduced.
I enjoy my current style of healing and feel that I am fairly proficient at it. I do not just cast LB on everything as some non-Druids think. I keep my stacks rolling on the tank/tanks then heal the raid with a combination of Rejuvenation, Regrowth, Swiftmend, and when available Nature’s Swiftness and Healing Touch. I’m not just a one trick pony. I do not have the best healing gear in my guild, not even close in fact, fully buffed I’m around 1750. With focus and a lot of effort I manage to pull my weight in Serpentshire Cavern.
It saddens me that Blizzard asked for our feedback about our class, sat politely, then unhearing handed down a nerf withdrawing to a place of silent unresponsiveness.

I sang praises when as the Tank I could do more damage than the DPS, when the nerf to bear form damage came I was still feral but I did not hold it against the Dev Team. Anyone could see that my abilities were outside of the design of my class.
Recently, my sentiment has been changed. When Zul’Aman went live and offered essentially nothing that would help me to fulfill my role, I was a bit cheesed. The fact the there were so few upgrades available to me through Heroic Badges, had me a little discouraged. The most recent news has me downright pissed. Read the rest of this entry »
Periodically while reading Druid blogs all around the interweb I have little epiphanies. I remember the overwhelming sense of awe (and duh) I felt when I learned that Lifebloom could be rolled on a target to prevent it blooming…

I was speced Feral from 60-70 and started raiding Karazhan as an OT so I never bothered to figure out what that new healing spell I got at lvl 64 had was capable of. When soloing I would stack LBs on myself before starting a tough pull but when in Bearform I couldn’t exactly reapply. Read the rest of this entry »
