So, our little jaunt to Karazhan lead to me acquiring this little lovely:
Except...well...I'm deep resto. And deep resto means Tree of Life. And Tree of Life means no Healing Touch.
This seems like a very strange choice of Idol for an early Epic drop in Karazhan. It's clearly for healing druids, so why not provide something that benefits all healing druids, most of the time? Instead, this is going to end up as something I equip in very specific situations: encounters when putting out large dump heals quickly is the priority and HoTs are just not going to cut it - against certain heroic bosses, for example*.
It seems a shame that my first Epic Idol turns out to be an only-for-best performer.
*Not that I've yet set foot inside an Heroic But, y'know, it sounds about right.
