The Wrath of the Lich King Talent trees been changed up pretty dramatically. Between new talents, balance changes to old ones and position shifting, many of the trees are only vaguely recognizable from their Burning Crusade incantations. In this article Byron "Messiah" Mudry looks at the Druids Restoration talent tree, where even the Tree of Life form gets a shakeup.

Probably the most important change here is the changes to Tree of Life form. It now allows you to cast all restoration spells and barkskin spells. This is a change from the old HoTs only version and allows you to remove poison in tree form instead of switching back and forth. It also allows you to cast your big heal if required. The reduced mana cost remains for just HoTs though. Also removed from the Tree form is the movement penalty.

These two changes will make Tree of Life even more useful than it is previously. There is now almost no reason to not have Tree form as a healer, especially since the 51 point talent, Flourish, requires it.
