    Default Why do Shaman and Druid heals require restrictions?

    Last time I checked, neither one of them were worth a damn. (the trees and the heals in them)

    Druid is not better than Jolt n Bolt, and I wouldn't call it better than 51 Shaman either.

    Whats the Druid healing restriction? a 15s CD? Not really a restriction just prevents druids being being to OP plus you can have your Faerie out if you want some more heals

    I used to be a shaman fan, but druid is too fun not to play with after being junk for about 7 patches. Makes for a fun pvp build too with the faerie and heal debuff. It would be nice to get some kind of passive avoidance/mitigation but heals might be asking too much.

    LOL it heals for less than 50% of a MoL's healing breath.

    Either nerf healing breath or buff balm of the woods.

    Not all classes get heals and not all of them are equal. Druid is a very viable class and the little heal it gets is a perk

    If you go by just the dps meter nothing is better than BnJ, but the fact you have to be in the bosses *** the whole fight or it has a huge drop off in dps makes not that great for all fights. I don't know how good shaman is because I don't have the crystal for it, but druid seems to be better for me at least.

    It's not even good as a panic button as healing breath heals for more even with MoA up. The shaman one requires you to get critically hit first which is just lol but at least you don't waste a skill point on it.

    Then don't waste a point on it. Then again, you'll be losing out on the two 51 pt abilities and the extra 17% modifier for your pets....
