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 :)

Montrealien3048d ago (Edited 3048d ago )

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.

DeeBee3048d ago (Edited 3048d ago )

Love the sarcasm ;) I'm talking about a dedicated AOE heal. Holy Light requires a glyph to do fairly limit AOE healing.

Montrealien3048d ago (Edited 3048d ago )

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

DeeBee3048d ago

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.
