Coaching, Spirit Link totem? and alts

So my personal big news for the day was how the elementary school wrestling team I coach preformed in the feeder tournament last night (the feeder tourney is to find the top 3 at each weight, for them to go to the city tournament representing the highschool they feed into.  Aka the feeder tourney).  We had 13 kids place top 3 to get to advance to city including 4 champions!  2 of our champions won in overtime, and 1 was down by 5 with 10 seconds left and pinned his opponent!  All in all I am extemely proud of the team and am really excited to see them preform at city!

On interesting wow news for today, I have been informed that shamans new totem has been put on the ptr:

Spirit Link Totem (new talent) reduces damage taken by all party and raid members within 10 yards by 10%. This lasts 6 seconds, and every second it is active the health of all affected players is redistributed among them, such that each player ends up with the same percentage of their maximum health. This counts as an Air totem and has a 3-minute cooldown.

This is pretty interesting design, I expect it to be changed slightly (maybe even scraped).  The 10 yard radius really limits its uses though, but it also makes it less likely to be in range of people standing in the bad.  I expect the most effective uses of this to involve focusing on healing a single target and using the totem to spread the healing to the others within range.  Effective example would be on chimaeron when everyones grouped up, have all healers focus on 1 target (using wild growth, circle of healing, and dawn of radiance as their instant though) to raise everyone very quickly without having to use tons of mana on aoe healing (also 10% dr has potential uses as a tank+offtank+shaman combo).  I'd love to hear some shamans opionons on this

So I have to admit something...  My name is tamek and I'm an altaholic.... Just kidding I actually hate leveling I'm just usually working on alts because I don't have time to do anything substantial on priest ;p.  Anyway my latest alt is my druid and I honestly think I could take him all the way to 85 (maybe even become main) because I am loving him!  I love hots so I started wondering why I never went druid before and I feel stupid for not rolling one earlier.  I am loving my druid wether its healing, or rooting ele shamans in place then darkflight travelforming away to cap the node in Arathi basin then watching a rogue kill himself off thorns, so if you can't tell I'm really enjoying my druid.  I just wish lifebloom was at a lower level (seriously you get revitalize in the 30s and malfurions gift in the 40s (i think its the 40s) but you don't get lifebloom til 64?  WTB low level life bloom qq.
