The final class preview for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is now available. The developers outline the changes planned for Paladins. The update reveals a new pet for the holy knights, an area of effect healing spell and the new mastery bonuses.
Looking good, very excited. The blinding shield looks retarded, cant wait! Cataclysm could not come any sooner, it will be huge!
This is the expansion I have been waiting for, TBC was mediocre, WOTLK is average. Hopefully this time blizz up the game big time!
I love every expac, they all blew me away, this one will be no different imho.
Finally Holy Paladins get an AOE heal :)
did you ever throw a holy light in the middle of a melee groups? Little green numbers appear everywhere. Not the best AoE, but its there.
Love the sarcasm ;) I'm talking about a dedicated AOE heal. Holy Light requires a glyph to do fairly limit AOE healing.
Glyph of Holy light accounts for about 15-20% of my raid healing, and in a raid, it is far from limiting. Thats not counting the HoT I dropped on the tank with my sacred shield, which I actually spread around during a fight and my beacon which basicly lets me heal to targets at once. And oh yeah, my judgemt of light, which heals everyone that hits the target I judged. We don`t have a dedicated AoE heal, but we have the tools to heal many people. I have had this argument many times, I don`t think I need an AoE heal, and we are getting one basicly because baddies don`t know how to heal as a paladin and they complained about the lack AoE. But I will not say no to an AoE heal. ;P
I actually agree with you Montralien, I'm doing fine healing 25man ICC without a dedicated AOE heal. BUT the addition of one would give us a little more flexibility and remove the idea the pallies are single target healers. I'm sure you've seen it yourself, people requesting Priest healers and turning down pally healers.
thats ridiculous paladins are OP and blizzard always give them more interesting spells I mean come on AOE heal?and Blinding Shield??
yeah, paladins are OP...you have no idea what you are talking about, just repeating what you read on forums.
