The new changes on the Superior Rune of Altruism are not healthy.
The 6th bonus on this rune used to give fury to allies: "When you use a healing skill, grant Fury to nearby allies for 8s. (Cooldown: 10s)". Now it simply gives healing power and transfers 1 condition from 5 allies to you after using an elite. This seems like a useless bonus for many PvE situations, such as most of the raid and fractal bosses.
This rune used to give many alternative healers, such as firebrand, renegade and scrapper, access to grant fury and keep a 100% uptime on it. Fury is an important boon to many damage dealers, and not all of them can self-generate it. This change makes druid even more of a must-have in fractals and raids now, which is not a healthy change. Arguably a chrono can provide the 100% fury uptime with chaos traitline, but this is not the case with fractal parties that wish to run with just a healer. The changes also made this rune less competitive against the runes of Water and Monk, which is also not a good change.
Therefore, I hope that this thread gets some attention, and hopefully there is a chance to get our old rune of Altruism back for the sake of diversity.
