Reading all the recent news and comments about our mushrooms, makes me wonder how the spell is used now, pre 5.2, and perhaps if and how you guys would use it after 5.2 has been released. Am I the only one using them exclusivly on Feng, where I can pre plant them and predict where the raid will stack when they need the healing? And of course the occasional times when bored in town, plant+detonate on friends when waiting for ques etc...
I truly feel that I cannot afford all the GCDs midfight to actually use it somewhat regularly and heal players with it. This issue, or rather clunky mechanic, seems to be the same in 5.2 aswell, therefor I feel like I wont be using them in 5.2 either. And i dont think the overhealing buff makes any diffrence at all. Since they need to be pre planted and built up with rejuv overhealing, casting them on the raid where they are a few mins into the fight, doesnt mean the raid is still standing on the same spot once they are buffed (therefor making them useless). I think there will be very few fights where we know where the raid will stack exactly, when they need the burst healing. Worst case is that the raid starts moving due to some unexpected pool of death&fire before all mushrooms are even planted, having us waste a few GCDs instead of healing the raid with the much needed burst healing.
My issue with this spell was never how much they healed, it was the fact that they are way to clunky to use. Buffing the healing doesnt make them useful in my oppinion. If im going to spend so much time and GCDs into a heal, I want it to hit, but in 9 fights out of 10 i cannot predict where the raid will be stacking once they need the burst healing. But perhaps its just me who cant use them.
-Are there any resto druids out there that is actually using this spell on a regular basis? (if so, please tell me where and how you do it)
-Do you guys think you will be using them in 5.2?
-Am I the only one who feels like they missed the point regarding what was broken with this spell?
Please let me know how you use them today, and how you think you will use them in 5.2!
Thank you in advance! / Naelwen
