A new patch has totally changed the light of dawn mechanics.

Now it costs holy power, heals more, without cooldown, having a max of healing 5 people.

Is this a buff or nerf, what are you first thourghts of the new Light of Dawn ability..?

Personaly I like it, and seing it as a nice option beside having word of glory to spent your holy power on :)

**Oh, remember to thrash your Light of Dawn glyph** ;)

I think light of dawn is for fights where you slay dragons. Not sure why you would use it more than ONCE in an arena match, since Word of Glory heals for more and costs the same thing. In my honest opinion, it is a nerf. Since you have to now have a holy power to use it, you have a lower chance of being able to use it in a CS/Spell lock

Indeed the use of holy power can be considered as a nerf..
But as 3 holypower Light of Dawn now heals around 6k and 9.5k crit..
3x HP Word of glory: 10k - 15k (crit)

Hitting 2 with Light of Dawn = More healing done. So it might be better against dk's diseases and affwlocks .. and also great in BG's as mentioned above.

True but remember that LoD heals in a cone so it's maximum potential will seldom be utilized.

you may use light of dawn if you are locked out of your holy tree and not blanket counterspelled... so, if u are cs'd and it hits ur holy tree, after the silence blanket is over you may use light of dawn. other than that, BGs it would be decent, that is if your withing 30 yards and a frontal cone of at least 2 people. :cool:

I guess not, but we'll see..
Well you don't have to heal 2 other people before it becomes more efficient, just 1 other and always hitting yourself ..

But I agree the short range is quite annoying.

Doesn't work anymore against silence effects tho.

Well if u are schooled, u can still use this ability healing ur partners for about 10k or it would heal urself with protector of teh inocent. so it could be a sort of bauble.

this is why i would use it in pvp

In double melee cleaves LoD will probably be very useful. Targets are on top of each other, plus beacon plus PotI for yourself, spread damage (dots, aoe, cleaves) somewhat nullified.
