f that. Regrowth is boss. If you're not some hybrid melee cupcake you will want it.

Regrowth has better HPS, but will cost you 20 more trains in total if you plan on getting Prayer of Mending. However, Regrowth is easier to stun then BM and has less of a chance of a low end heal.

Long story short, I'd never take Regrowth over Blessed Mending. Nor would I go less then 100-120% into resto on any character. Regrowth isn't worth sitting there and randomly getting a decent heal for 700+ when you can get constant 350+ (400ish on my healers on average) from BM in less time.

For PLing/PvE, regrowth. Otherwise, BM will win everytime just in the sense of you aren't waiting for that one big heal that can also kill you because of a lowend heal.

Blessed Mending is superior in pretty much every way.

But yeah, either way if you're only taking Resto to 50% you might as well just train the Rune Caster heal if you have 120 int or better.

I would also concur with more restoration if you are doing a caster druid. Survivability = More Dmg.

It's a matter of personal preference. I play on a centaur, so I prefer regrowth because it hits so much harder. I'd have to get about 3 blessed mendings off to equal 1 regrowth, that means I can take more damage before I have to back off and start healing. In the end it's more efficient.

True it's easier to stun, but if you know how to play it really shouldn't be a problem.

Anyway to the op, I would never go less than 100 resto. A druid needs to have good heals to be effective.

Except when you get a low end regrowth and end up screwing yourself with all that time wasted where you could have easily taken BM and healed for more ;) In the end BM is superior

Regarding the low end of regrowth, I'd say realistically it's around 400-450 whereas a low end BM is around 230-250. A 230-250 heal isn't gonna do much when someone is hitting you for 500+ while mixing in Stun's, PB's, etc. etc., or when you're coming out of a 9 sec wizard stun with a quarter of your life left. I'd much rather have regrowth.

I really wish I had taken a screenshot of me spamming regrowth and blessed mending on myself during the preview. Just arguing here seems pointless, would be nice to see some actual figures.

If you are coming out of a stun there is no better heal than the % heal, as for the low end BM.. it really comes down to how much int/resto and gear you are running, my lowest BM tends to hit for 320ish

healing = important on casting healer classes....which is the majority 0.0. I would never dip on restoration...i wuv it. BM w/ 120restoration has saved my [fluffy bunnies] so many times its not funny,

Mana wise but.... if it's a full afk macro regrowth or group heal is more ideal

That low and I would say to hell with BM and Regrowth and take the rune caster heal. With the O stance power buff it will hit as hard.

Also I was always a BM fan over regrowth until I saw a friend who was really good at pulling away from an attacker and dropping them. If you can make the space regrowth is better if you can't BM is comes down to your skill set.
