-None.

Will there be any? At all? I think honestly this is the one spell that has received the least attention when it requires the most. This could be a staple in Holy Healing, and I want it to be, but it just doesn't work. On paper it does, in practice it doesn't.

Will it be looked at? Or will another expansion go by with it being left in a corner?

Q u o t e:
How to make lightwell work:
- Change clicking range to 15y
- Make clicking it not change target


As I have said previously, this is the plan. We just haven't been able to test it yet, and the talent has enough baggage that it's hard to get players to even try it.

While any kind of feedback is helpful to a degree, we are much more interested in the feedback of players who have tried Lightwell in the most recent beta builds than those who just never cared for the talent. We are actively making changes to the spell to see how it plays, so it's important for us to know if the changes are noticeable and fun without that feedback getting buried under the cruft of bad reputation that Lightwell has built up over time. If it's still not cutting it, we're prepared to try something different, but we need a chance to see if that is in fact the case.

Q u o t e:
Most people aren't even willing to click a healthstone, what makes you think they'd go out of their way for lightwell? I can't count the number of times I've thrown down the soul well on my warlock, had a wipe, and nobody needs a new healthstone the next time around.


Healthstones are good and good players use them. If bad players continue to ignore Lightwell, we can live with that. If it becomes as useful as a Healthstone, perfect.

Also note that ignoring a Healthstone (or Lightwell) will be essentially like casting a mana drain on your healer, which is not the case today.
