I too am tempted, if there were a swell in signatures it'd be impossible to tell who is who as well... In fact, as our characters aren't tied to our names, no one from wow would know. I'll assume people from Real Life wouldn't care that we played wow either...

I can't decide if I'm serious or joking. I think both.

Well, there is that old statement, "What do we have to lose?" Can it really hurt to sign that thing?

Here's what I want for shaman:
CH double range, no CD, cast while moving, reverse order of bounce or baseline riptide buff.

I want CH to still be this iconic heal that it used to be, it just needs to be updated. Reversing the order has two effects 1) it makes it less desireable to spam when it might only hit 2 targets, 2) the large hit hitting the riptide target means that target is topped, wasting any further first target advantage on them. Downside is it makes the heal smarter (more needy targets getting the biggest heals). Heck make it so unleash elements allows you to do the move while casting CH for 10s so the spell is useful most of the time!

This fixes the spread healing issue (to some extent - resto will still probably be the weakest spread healers even with this) and gives some mobility to healing a raid that is spread. With additional buffs should keep the 'stacked niche'.

Another PTR update with no improvements.

Sigh.

Eh, I think i'd prefer SLT switched HTT in the talent tree, HTT buffed like tranq was, and maybe a 30sec-1min debuff after SLT use to prevent stacking. All of this has been suggested by other people, and I definitely want to sign on to this change. The talent tier would have more flavor (conductivity would still need to be reworked, it went from terrible to more terrible in the latest ptr patch), and offer 2 or 3 real choices, and having AG as a spread bandaid seems acceptable for the rest of the xpac. Tired of glyph changes, or chainheal/healing rain buffs.

My apologies, as I understand it threads cap out at #500? I didn't want us to just bam hit it without some new thread to continue to voice concerns.
