wowprogress -> Top guilds -> Armory their druids

Good luck finding them in their resto specs.

But if you want a quick opinion:
- Get a real 2nd trinket, Bottled Wishes is terrible.
- Reforge down to 2005 Haste.
- Living Seed is terrible, respec to 8/2/31 (3 Moonglow, 2 Furor, 2/3 Nature's Bounty)
- Your spirit may be a little high with HoU in a 10 man setting.

You may want to remember that healers in the top guilds face different challenges than us hoi polloi. They will often build specs and gear sets to meet a specific challenge on one fight, that would be highly detrimental on another fight, so simply copying whatever spec/gear they have listed may not help you out with what you are doing.

Also, some highly competitive guilds don't like to share secrets, so their raid healers will log out in a feral spec with their fishing pole equipped.

You are much better off reading the stickies in the Druid forum, Elitest Jerks, or various resto blogs. You can also check the armories of some of the regular posters around here to see who is progressing in the fights you are interested in, and seeing how they gear and spec.

He'd have to drop Nature's Cure to pickup the second point in Nature's Bounty, and I'd only recommend doing that if all his raid's dispels are relegated to another healer.

The only other way he can take off some spirit would be on his belt.

Honestly, I would recommend making changes to spirit based on his mana consumption. I run more spirit than usual with HoU, but I tend to play more aggressively, so it evens out.

I agree with your other two points, though.

Remember you want to look at either 10s or 25s to match what you are aiming for because it can affect how people spec and gear. Wow Progress is a good bet. World of Logs may get you some good people but keep in mind that healer rankings are very different than DPS rankings due to the nature of healing.

1/3 Perseverance isn't much better than 1/3 Living Seed.

max mana increased by 10%? it's also useful for using stampeding roar.
you also know that revitalize is affected by furor, because your mana is higher? :)

10% more mana? yea i don't care about mana to be honest i rather just put on rej on a person and their fine cough i love the genesis over stupid 10% more mana but im in a 10man so i guess that changes things from 25man

Furor - better if no mana problems
Moonglow - better if there are mana problems

Also, OP, looking at top ranked players via healing meters/logs isn't going to help you get a better understanding of how to play an rdruid. The real only way to rank now is if you're:
1. First to do the fight and have no competition
2. Your raid takes an abnormal amount of damage from being BAD and not knowing the fight
3. Your other healers let you basically solo-heal in order to get you the rank

Don't look at rankings to figure this out, read blogs/forums/informational sites.

I would change your meta to the 2% mana instead, but everyone likes to argue about which is better. I personally think more mana = more to heal with. Idgaf about crit as an rdruid.

-Neck should be crit > diff stat. Crit is by far our lowest stat.
-You're over the hastecap, no need to keep reforging out of spirit for more. Spirit still DOES give mana regen, whereas haste past 2005 is kind of worthless (unless you're able to break the next point, and we can't)
-Change your haste enchants to mastery, see what that'd bring you down to first.
-And yeah, spec out of LS. It's bad.
