For anyone not following all the recent blue posts and hotfix notes, I thought I would mention that a couple days ago Purification was buffed from a 10% healing increase to a 25% healing increase, for a net gain of about 13.5%. Also, Blizzard is talking about adding a defensive CD to both Resto Shamans and Resto Druids in the next an upcoming content patch.

For those of us that are totally newbies, can you explain what a defensive cooldown would mean?

Like a priest's Pain Suppression - something to reduce the incoming damage to the tank that you can use during high-damage phases.

That is cool. I sort of wish that instead of that we got a something that slowed the damage coming in, or increased our healing instead. Only reason I feel that way is to differentiate the healing classes. But the downside to that is of course that you end up with one healing type being superior for whatever reason.

Pallies have mostly throughput CDs, stuff that increases healing done by the paladin or healing received by the target. Lay on Hands, GoAKs, Avenging Wrath, Divine Favor. Hand of Sac works like a defensive CD, but you end up taking the extra damage, so you need to be ready to heal yourself.

Priests have more damage-reduction CDs. Guardian Spirit (Holy) increases healing, but also prevents the next killing blow; Pain Suppression and and PW: Barrier are straight damage reduction. There's also Divine Hymn, which is really just a Tranquility clone.

Druids have ToL form, which is kind of an output CD, but doesn't do a lot for single target output. They also have Tranquility.

Out CDs as Resto shamans are Ancestral Swiftness Spiritwalker's Grace (run while casting for 15 sec, neither output nor defensive) and Mana Tide Totem. Each healer already has a mana CD, ours just happens to be raid-wide.

Edit: Yeah, Ancestral Swiftness is the run-speed talent, second tier Enhance.

And by Ancestral Swiftness he means Spiritwalker's Grace, hehe (unless that's different for Horde vs Alliance).

I would love to see a defensive cooldown...or any helpful cooldown, for that matter. I'm glad that it's being noticed that we're not where we should be...I still have a solid spot on my raid team, but they're looking more and more at my pally healer alt as the other healers start to not need mana tide anymore.
