Huzzah! The 3.2 PTR Patch notes are here and what do we find??? Some upgrades, some nerfs, and all and all, good ol' Blizzardary.
Im gona tear apart the little Resto Druid Section in the Notes (Found here 3.2 PTR Patch Notes )
Druids(Ive only included what is relivant for resto)
Innervate: Duration reduced to 10 seconds, and cooldown reduced to 3 minutes. This means each use of Innervate will give half as much mana as before, but it will be available twice as often.
So, Not a HUGE nerf, Nor an Upgrade. As far as Innervate goes, I usually would only use it during a very very long encounter (meaning more that 8 minutes) and I would usually use it when im down to 3-5k mana. With my MP5 While casting is at 301 (Unbuffed) Not a nerf/buff to really be concerned about as resto. As long as your MP5 is looking good, you should never go below 10k mana during a normal encounter (assuming your mana Pool is about 22k Buffed.)
Lifebloom: The final heal that occurs when this spell blooms has been reduced by 20% on the base and on the spell power coefficient.
/Sigh Havent you done enough to Lifebloom? Im Really enjoying my Lifebloom x3 critting for 20k....This one really sucks....way to chop the Druid Tree down....
Empowered Touch: Now also increases the amount of bonus healing effects for Nourish by 10/20%.
/blankstare Alright so in my previous entry i went over not putting talents into this becaue we don't use healing touch....well Now its effecting Nourish....so effectivly this means finding two extra points lying around to put this into, or at least one point....so what im going to do is:
Take One point out of Natures Splendor, so that would decrese the time ticking on my Lifebloom, Regrowth, and Rejuv. Not a big deal. Next i would take out one point from Gift of the Earthmother, Reducing my Global cooldown from 20% to 16%....Again not a huge bomb. But this now enables me to add the 2 points into Empowered Touch, to get that 20% Bonus for Nourish!
Here is a sample Build on how my 3.2 Talent will look
3.2 Resto Druid Sample Tree
Thats about it for now as far as 3.2 is concerned about Resto druids.....of course there are many things in the patch i cant wait for such as:
Mana Regeneration: All items that provide "X mana per five seconds" have had the amount of mana they regenerate increased by approximately 25%.
This makes up for the innervate loss for those Druids who havent stacked up on MP5 yet.
Values on Northrend ring enchants increased.
This is just Personally exciting XD
And Well of course the Emblem changes and the new Heroic instance is exciting as well...But untill the next patch comes out, just tryin to progress through Uld, and farm Heroics!
