I think these are sometimes too focused on raids over dungeons, and some are not paying enough attention to what top players are using. Like in talent row 5 for dungeons, incarnation is clearly the worst pick, while top players use both cultivation and soul. So I'm not sure why cultivation is given the red X.

These are not focused on raids over dungeons. Talent section overview shows which talents are the best for either dungeons or raids. Tree is the best talent for raids, so it gets a check mark. SotF is the best talent for dungeons, so it gets the check mark. It really is that simple. This page is an introduction to talents, it even has links to both raid and mythic+ pages. If you followed through the links to my Mythic+ page, you'd see a huge red X on the Tree of Life there. 

 

About "top players". First of all, most of them are not even playing in pre-patch (9 out of top 10 from season 4 are not present on pre-patch leaderboard), so not sure where you got their opinions from. Second, even if we assume those current guys are are what you refer to as "top players", cursory look through the leaderboard shows overwhelming preference towards Soul of the Forest, and it's not even close. I even went ahead and checked the stream of #1 druid. He did 11 dungeons during his last session and played Soul of the Forest in all of them.

Not sure what you wanted to say with this.

In the level 45 talents row, Overgrowth got a fat X, as the author stated it costs too much (30% of base mana) and has 1min cooldown. However, it only costs 600 mana on my 10k mana resto druid, so I'm not sure if it was changed or the page just has wrong information. Does that mean it could be more competitive, or Spring Blossoms and Inner Peace are still stronger options? I'm aware that Overgrowth is a one-target ability, so it might be a strong cooldown for tank healing.

Your base Mana is 5 times lower than Maximum Mana. The 600 cost on lvl 50 is correct. For comparison, Rejuv costs 200, Lifebloom 147, 1/6th of Wild Growth is 73 and 1/3rd of Regrowth (HoT portion) - 113. Total is 533 which is lower than Overgrowth. Obviously, you save a GCD, but that's still not Mana efficient. 

It will be used in PvP, most definitely, but I do not think it will find a lot of use in PvE outside of very niche scenarios. When it will be usable, it will be extremely obvious due to other 2 options providing nothing.

In the easy mode guide, in the Talents sections, it has you choose Typhoon as the level 35 talent. This is not even one of the 3 options.

Yeah, the difference between Night Fae and second best is rather large. There were multiple nerfs to other covenants as well, which didn't help with the gap.

Do you ever use thrash when catweaving?

You do not have thrash with feral affinity, so that would be a no.
