Diplomacy is just war by other means.
I have come to notice that blooming your mushrooms more often in 10 man provides a lot more healing seeing as there are less targets to keep the concentrated efflo blooming away on. On Galakras bloom was my top heal. And I'm not using Rejuv less or incorrectly.
Speaking of, how effective is blooming the mushroom with the legendary cloak proc? I only just got my cloak a couple of days ago and am yet to raid with it, but it seems like if we bloom one someone while procced, it should effectively full health an entire 10 man raid.
So when are you guys going to drop the previous heroic 4 set for the new set (or something else)?
Currently I only got 1 normal token so Its not a quite in range for me yet. Also I feel the the old 4 set is a beast with the general higher healing requirements on this tier.
I'm just a little nooblette but how do you guys tell when mushroom is at full power?
The Bloom hotkey should light up by default
I (And quite a few druids I speak to) have a WeakAura for the mushroom charge. It's extremely handy and I recommend downloading WeakAuras2 to try it out.
Here's the string for WeakAuras to import: pastebin DOT com/CDCEb4qM (Can't actually post links atm :X )

So I see alot of other Resto Druids taking Force of Nature. I have been swapping between ToL and SotF depending on the fight. Is FoN better than those in a situation I am not aware of.
Really, I think it all depends on the player. Each talent can fit a healing comp in different ways, and can fit healing styles in different ways.
However, mathematically, I don't think FoN can produce the same level of pure throughput (which even though that isn't always what matters, it's the easiest thing to measure) assuming SotF and Inc are used correctly.
a) the output isn't that hard and I can slack a little
b) if everyone is stacked up often (their efflo's actually do a decent amount of healing)
c) Fights where the smart heal comes in handy (i.e. thok)
It may be less theoretical throughput but I've found their smart heals to be incredibly efficient in certain situations.
That said I use sotf and incarn regularly as well.
TLR each talent serves a purpose. Use them all on different fights.
If you are specced in glyph of effloresence (which causes your mushroom to give efflo, instead of swiftmend), do the treants using swiftmend still provide effloresence or not?
That said, I'm not a fan of Incarnation. It's too weak to really be a cooldown on its own, and has too long of a cooldown for me to bother lining it up with anything else (though it's a good match to use with every other NV). I like the idea of FoN, but the numbers are a bit too weak. The treants look like they're doing a lot of AoE healing, but the numbers don't add up to much. SotF is a bit dull and prevents you from really using Swiftmend as anything but a buffing tool, but it's magnificently effective and kind of fun to play with. Besides, Swiftmend isn't good for much anyway once you've got the Efflorescence glyph (and you should have it), as a <100k heal every 15 seconds doesn't amount to much.

That's nothing new.....
I appreciate Aoroc maintaining it and working hard to update it, but it being a composite of the best Druid sources has been the basis of the MMO resto guide for many years, if not always...
And frankly the EJ thread is a composite of its own, and not as unique as it used to be (when Hamlet maintained it), though it is still the premeire source. The discussions within either thread is where important and "leading edge" TC occurs anyway, they just provide the material and place to do so...
The heart of the wild information on the front page//guide is incorrect. It lasts for 45 seconds, not 30. It's also not stated, but the healing bonus is +25%... for the full 45 second duration.
For 25man raiding and needing 1 supertranq (or two depending on fight length) this is extremely broke.
