It doesn't give you symbiosis it gives you what the druid would have given. Also like the other guy said l2read it's only usable in the outside world in pandaria. You're still the special snowflake in anything that matters.
Whoooooo hoooooo an item that gives a lock rejuv.... by the way most ferals depending on the fight if it has any swapping will symb a lock...
So for all Non-druid classes, it is exactly that - it does give you the Symbiosys spell? The one that you have in your spellbook. Tell me how is that different from "a druid giving you symbiosys". For every class that can use this item, it actually *does* give them the druid symbiosys spell that's in their spellbook.
Secondly, outside world of pandaria *does* matter. That's where the bulk of my playing is spent right now, and for the most part, for a lot of other people too.
As for a lock getting Rejuv - perhaps you don't get that much benefit out of it as other classes. But that's still ONE self heal that you don't get from any other way. Other notable spells that other classes get: Cyclone, Stampeding Shout, Healing Touch, Dash, Solar Beam.... You're telling me those are pointless too I'm sure?
As someone has pointed out, this would not be so problematic if symbiosys was Cata's ability or this item was introduced next expansion.
Everyone but the druid gets new spells - however situational - without any tradeoff whatsoever. And some spells more powerful than others. If this was a vanity item, give it a proper CD, or make it a trinket at the very least like Golden Fleece or the Archy vanity items.

Which is why it angsts even more... That item allows you to remove the 2nd person out of the 2-person requirement. As for Vanity - read above about CD.
