Resto Druids and 4.1 (as of 28/02/11)
Now that 4.1 is on the horizon (well starting on PTR anyway) we have a few indications of what we may expect in the patch. So far we have;
- Efflorescence has a new spell effect. WOW!!! A new spell effect!! seriously though, buff it already don’t just change the graphics ><
- Lifebloom’s bloom effect has been reduced by 20%. In addition, it now costs 11% of base mana, up from 7%. Meh, not so good, the healing is reduced while cost goes up. However it will still be pretty cheap and usually it ticks rather than blooms anyway for the clearcast procs etc, so maybe not as bad as it seems.
- Gift of Nature (passive) also reduces Tranquility’s cooldown by 2.5/5 minutes. I am seriously hoping this isn’t the proposed change to help give druids some more CDs like paladins and priests, we need something better than this. If this is just a “normal” change and we still get something else later then YAY! we get a good AoE heal without an eight minute CD, if it is the only change we end up getting then 😦 as we could really do with something different and more centred on damage reduction rather than pure healing.
Not much to go on yet, but hopefully things will change and get better 🙂
