Gift of the Earthmother math

Posted in Theorycrafting on March 24, 2009 by therason

Gift of the Earthmother, a deep resto talent that decreases the GCD of your Lifebloom, Rejuv, and Wild Growth spell by up to 20%.

On the surface it seems like an amazing talent but looking deeper it’s usefulness is debateable.

Over a 5 minute period assuming chain casting of only hots you save 11.7 seconds due to GoTEM. Now those seconds can be put to great use but the cost of this talent is very high. Now the more geared you get the less you need GoTEM.

To GCD cap your HoTs you need x haste in relation to GoTEM, and only stack haste until you GCD cap your hots after that…it’s incredibly weak.
