Usually I don't post much about specific talent builds in the game. I am a middle of the road player and leave the heavyweight discussions on whats hot in the talent builds to people like Keeva over at http://treebarkjacket.com/2011/02/26/ptr-efflorescence-smart-heal/ or Beruthiel at http://fallingleavesandwings.wordpress.com/ who do some great stuff on builds/ theory crafting.
However at the moment on thing that has left me in a quandary is dear old Efflorescence. I currently have it in this build http://www.wowhead.com/talent#0hbhZMZMfzIbcruoko. As you can see I have fully talented into Efflorescence and do use it quite a lot during raiding but I am beginning to question if it is worth it or not.
Our raid composition for healers is generally me, a pally and a holy priest with sometimes (if the pally is tanking) two holy priests (on this point Tessy from http://www.reflectionsfromthepond.com/ should on no account going forward let her son anywhere near her router near raid nights!) so I generally find myself tank healing on a lot of fights to a greater or lesser extent. With the fact we always have a holy priest in the raid as a raid healer I am questioning if it is worth keeping Efflorescence in the build anymore.
I think Efflorescence should be a lot cooler than it is and at the moment it doesn't feel like its competing with Circle of Healing or Healing Rain. I kind of want to hang on it as I feel almost I should as a nod to my raid healing past but I am wondering if a build like http://www.wowhead.com/talent#0hbhZMZrfzIbcrzodo would be more beneficially to the type of healing I am doing?
Has anyone else out there tried out dropping Efflorescence from their build and how has it worked out? I think I may try it for the next raid and see how it pans out though I think I will miss out on seeing green puddles all the time.
