Hi guys -
I was reading the resto guide, and while 99% of it was awesome, I feel you are *seriously* making a mistake in suggesting the Gyph of Rejuvenation as a primary glyph of Gyph of Regrowth.
Glyph of Rejuvenation: When you have Rejuvenation active on three or more targets, the cast time of your Nourish spell is reduced by 30%.
-- If youre raiding healing (Esp a 25m), it's perfectly logical that you'll have 3 Rejuvs running, but the likelihood you'll be using Nourish in that situation is diminished - if youre running that many Rejuvs, youre probably raid healing. If youre tank healing, while youre using Nourish a lot more, youre probably not running all those Rejuvs cause it is a moderately expensive spell. Also, if youre raid healing, youre probably not doing Nourish all that much (except, of course, to keep Harmony active). [This is based on my personal experience of healing 5ms, 10ms, and LFR 25ms)
Glyph of Regrowth: Increases the critical strike chance of your Regrowth by 40%, but removes the periodic component of the spell.
-- Since Regrowth has an inherent 60% chance to crit, this bumps youre crit chance to 100%, and crits give you an automation +250% heal. Thats *huge*. Most druids (every single one that Ive ever met) use druids as out fast big/emergency heal.
I stood in Org and regrowth'd myself for about 10 mins. This is based on my level 85 toon with about 30% 10m DS gear and 70% LFR gear (ilvl 398, 13% inherent crit chance.
My Regrowths unglyphed hit for about 22k with 3 tics of 1685. Lets call it a total heal of 50k.
My crit Regrowths hit for about 45k + 3 tics of 3471. Lets call it 55k overall.
HOWEVER - I had trinkets procing and sometimes the Regrowth wouldnt crit at the same time. With it glyphed, I was consistently doing 45k heals, about 30% of the time doing 50-55k heals, and twice did a 70k heal.
So in exchange for giving up 5-10k heals in a spell that more than likely we will want in an emergency as a always-ready emergency heal (Healing Touch was also doing 45k (uncrit) but as an emergency heal you're going to have to have Nature's Swiftness up, and since it wont auto crit, you cant be assured you'll get the advantage of any procs you may have active)
I didnt mean to go on for this post so long
My point is, in the overwhelming majority of situations, I feel Glyph of Regrowth will consistently give you more bang for your buck than Rejuv. Thanks for reading!
