HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Good News for Trees of Life

Ancient of War in Zangamarsh: The new Tree of Life?

OK it creeps me out a teeny bit when I write a post about how I personally envision things changing… and then I read a short paragraph from Blizzard that sounds eerily familiar.

Q. Why are Restoration druids the only spec in the game not receiving a new spell?

A. Restoration druids are actually getting a fair bit. For one, Tree of Life is getting a whole new model (think Ancients of War) and will also “morph” some of your spells to do crazy things while in the form, such as cause Regrowth to be instant, or Lifebloom to apply two applications at once.

Tranquility will be raid-wide. We’re also touching nearly every Restoration druid spell to make sure each has a niche and feels good. In general, playing a Restoration druid should feel a lot different (better!) in Cataclysm than it does today.

Now all I need it my “Rampaging Tree Bash” spell and I’ll be a happy Elf.

ps. This is the third time (1 & 2) something we’ve suggested at HoTs and DoTs has become an official change – how freaky is that?!

    You could say it’s great anticipation, or that you should be game designers! How fun would that job be.

    Did you see the bit about them making healing touch a more attractive option? Like it may end up refreshing lifeblooms. I can’t wait for beta to start to get some real info happening!
