By reducing the casting time without affecting the amount healed, this talent significantly increases the healing done per second when casting Healing Touch.
This talent has no effect on Healing Touch when it is cast together with Nature's Swiftness.
Tips and tactics
As Healing Touch sees fairly little use in endgame healing, most Restoration druids do not feel that this talent is worth the points at higher levels. It is however a useful talent for a leveling Restoration druid, as it increases damage done in addition to improving your healing, providing a significant bonus even outside of groups. With access to dual talent specializations at higher levels, this becomes less of an issue.
