Utter neglect on blizzards part towards Resto

Druid
- Swiftmend interface glitch STILL EXISTS after DOZENS of hotfixes and TWO major patches
- By far the weakest healing class+spec apart from Holy Priests, but they're fine because Disc is good
- Wild Mushrooms totally useless and not worth the GCD, but is one of the "main gimmicks" of our spec... that no one uses

I've played this game since vanilla and as long as I can remember I've never seen the class development team continually neglect a class+spec for this long, ESPECIALLY when it comes to awkward UI bugs pertaining to our most important ability.

Have there been any official statements on the status of resto druids? If not, well, I'd certainly like to hear one.
Yea I feel like resto has been totally neglected--zero changes in 5.1 (unless you cant symbiosis boost to tanks that has no impact on our play). No responses to our beyond lackluster performance in 25 mans. No response to our unique inability to heal with priests or paladins due to hot sniping.

And holy priests rock now with divine star, our hpriest is putting out over 100k hps on fights where we can stack since they buffed it.
I was not aware that druid heals are pretty weak. I thought we were pretty strong. Oh, I guess I just ran out of weed.

Looking at your toon I can completely understand your opinion on this class.
Blizzard is probably deathly afraid of giving a class with so much maneuverability in pvp a buff to healing. Resto druids aren't the top dogs of PvP right now but they are certainly good. If you gave them a throughput buff, they would be OP.

the "use 1" at the end of the macro fixed the issue for me - at least with Swiftmend. PW:S still has problems even with it in the macro.

Hope this helps...

Hey just throwing this out there but since this patch, I've noticed it has started to happen with Rebirth.... Anyone else notice this? I use a mouseover macro for mine, just as I do for SM, so if you test this make sure you've got that going :P
