I wouldn't say equal value but they certainly have their place on your bars. Flash heal is useful to build up serendipity which can certainly help during burst healing phases. Heal is useful when you have down time in healing and gheal is useful for a tank heal if your tank healer is in a bind and obviously works well if you have serendipity stacks.

Equal? No.
All useful? Absolutely

Ok. Thanks. I haven't messed with Other healers at 80+ yet besides my priest and shaman. I wanted to make sure that I was sort of trying to at least do it kind of right.

No, it's a valid question since spells like Flash of Light and Healing Surge aren't really used that often in the other healing classes.

(I have no idea if the druid's version of it is used. . .swiftmend?!)

I certainly don't abuse Flash Heal as my mana pool can't sustain it but it's definitely useful when I can predict/time a burst AoE healing spree. It all depends on the fight but if you had me put a percentage of usage on those spells it would probably be something like 50/35/15 for Heal/Gheal/Flash Heal. That includes SoL procs as well.

i pretty much only use flash heal to build serendipity stacks and if i get a Surge proc.
heal is a decent filler if you arent casting anything else (and iirc its more mana efficient then renew)

Nourish is what you're thinking of.

I typically use Nourish as a filler, and to keep Harmony (mastery) active.

So Nourish is like Heal?

What's the version of a Flash Heal/Flash of Light for a druid?

My IQ of a resto druid is pretty much the equivalent of the IQ of an empty mayonnaise jar. I'd like to know more about them and I read up on ej.com but the number of HoTs/spells/buffs started to make my eyes glaze over as it's a Friday afternoon. I'll look more at it this weekend.

The closest equivalent is Regrowth. But Regrowth differs in that it also applies a HoT beyond the mastery (I believe FH and HS apply a mastery HoT?).

If anyone could make a dumbed down version resto druid guide, I'd totally give you an internet high five.

Er...I can try, but tbh, I don't know how much time I have to devote to it. How dumb do you want it to be?

Don't worry about it. I'm sure there are guides floating out there in the interwebz. Maybe I'll just post mechanic questions once I get into it.

You mean, at some point I will have to do more than stack lifebloom on the tank, and wild growth AoE heals?

I'm 72, and I don't think I've cast a "cast time" heal yet when I heal.

You know I've looked at logs of Resto druids and Wildgrowth is doing 40% of all the healing and I always think to myself "It can't be thaaattt easy, can it?" I'm sure I'm missing something but I always like to see how the other half lives.

Granted the logs I'm looking at aren't uber guild logs but it always makes me wonder.

WG is more like 33% of their healing done on healing intensive fights.

when healing on my resto druid i always keep lifebloom X3, rejuv, and WG up on the tank at all times. that is usually enough to keep most "good and properly gemmed" tanks at full health in heroics. now with glyphed WG it will usually hit every member plus a pet in a 5 man so that really helps for the heals but also over heals alot. swiftmend is usually tossed in to add a bit of a big heal plus puts the aoe heal on the ground (effloresence?) so i try to use it when we are in one spot so not to waste the aoe. nourish acts like heal for priest and healing wave from shammans. healing touch acts like greater heal for priest and greater healing wave for shammans. regrowth acts like flash heal for priest and healing surge for shammans, the only diff is it does have a very small hot that comes with it (i think 3 sec). the reason that WG makes up for so much of our healing is that i belive its a smart heal, such as in BH when the eyes are out you can cast it on the tank but if he is close to full health it will go on the 6 members with the lowest percentage of HP. so WG with a correctly placed swiftmend will cause a lot of aoe heals. as well as a resto druids mastery is based off of hots on your target of a direct heal, so if you keep rolling WGs up it will boost your direct heals if they start taking damage. so as with the other classes nourish to top ppl off and healing touch for big damage moments and i usually only use regrowth in pvp.
