This is my very first post as I thought it was about time to have some input to this mmo community about my beloved druid.
This (hopefully) isnt going to be a QQ thread about how druid healers are lacking behind others because we all know that its true, how ever from personal experience when we are pushing heroic progression fights where the other healers (shaman, disc priest) and when we are duo (disc and myself) I top the meters hands down. However as we start to get these boss's on farm the disc priest just over takes me hands down, cant keep up with him. Even raided with a decent pally the other day to find that even now he is beating me!! Its not even like its close tbh, the disc priest once they know the fight can bubble spirit shell blah blah blah stuff so no one takes any damage, the pally whilst this is going on, is building his own lil bubble up on people using his mastery, may not be a huge one, but that is still a heal
What I have been trying to do is think of ways that druids can compete in farm content with these damage preventer healers, honestly fights are so boring to heal when we have them on farm as i can barely do anything productive apart from throw down some really bad dps
So I was think maybe a change to the way in Living Seed and the mushrooms work, i personally would love to see a bit more burst healing from druids and if possible maybe an absorb somewhere along those lines, I quite like the way in which pallys mastery works in terms of heal and they get a shield, so was wondering maybe living seed could work as an absorb, but it doesnt stack like a pally's would?? Or even to incorporate wild mushroom bloom into living seed, so for example 4 people have had a living seed on them for lets say 25k, we use bloom and those with the living seed bloom and are instantly healed for that 25k.
Thus allowing us to have a bit more burst healing on the raid, and if we combine both so living seed is an absorb and can still bloom it means that a living seedd can either bloom at 25k or it can bloom with 1k, would be quite fun to see how that would work out
what do you lot think? if i have made any sense what so ever
Sorry for the long post
had to get it off my chest
