If someone's obnoxious on the internet, there's no reason to try to out-obnoxious them.

Using Rejuv (even without the t8.5 set bonus), regrowth, and the occasional Nourish to top them off works much better. Mana efficiency plays a big roll in the major fights in Ulduar now, and LB stacking on multiple targets is no longer mana efficient. Stacking LB on a main tank, however, is still the best way to go.
If you let your lifeblooms bloom... it is MORE mana efficient then it was pre-3.1. And since I clearly stated that I was using 2 stack blooms, that fits the bill. So if anybody is "smoking something", i'd say its you.
How are you going to heal like that? It takes 2 gcds to get a 2-stack on someone. That means 2 seconds between each bloom. At best you're looking at blooming 5 people, since it really doesn't take more than 10 seconds to stablize any raiddamage. I'd rather put RJ on 10 people, with the option to Swiftmend. I use RJ (together with WG) for so many incoming raiddamage: Ignis, XT, Hodir, Mimiron p2, Yogg. All of those fights it seems very effective as it does at least half of my healing. The 4T8 bonus is going to be so overpowered, I can't imagine it won't be nerfed.
If you put two blooms on a person right away maybe, you can get much more then that by giving everyone a 1 stack and then refreshing them all. What I do for frozen blows since its 100% predictable, is start stacking a bloom on multiple people as Flash Freeze is about to be cast. By the time we're free to get out of the safe spot Ive reached my capacity, and start putting the second bloom on people. This usually finishes at or around frozen blows, then I start with the juvs.
It really is quite flawless, and in this particular fight its 100% unbeatable. Especially since you can do it all on the move and keep biting cold off without losing any casttime.
