Okay, so the other day we were fooling around in 2s, and I decided to spec light's hammer for shits and giggles. To my surprise, it actually worked pretty well, making me the god of pillar-kiting and actually helping my warrior buddy score kills by making it ultimately harder for enemy players to pillarhump.  

Granted, it's 2s and only about 1700 rating, but it got me thinking:

- would light's hammer be a preferable option in 3s vs comps like kittycleave, tsg, turbocleave etc.? Wouldn't it make kiting them around pillars ultimately easier, and as such better than holy prism in that particular situation?

- can light's hammer stop node capping in RBGs? Did someone test this? Seems incredibly strong in certain situations, if it works.

- it's sadly not a good option in 3s because the enemy will simply start to counterkite and unleash hell after LH's duration. Standing together as team is also a bad decision most of the time.
- it does stop capping in RBGs. LH is a very powerful talent for them rated battles.

Mmmh, I wonder if it's a good idea to use it as ret on nodes RBGs.

Why do you even play RBGs as ret? O.o

@ glonglon
IMHO for ret, between the AOE seal and divine storm, light's hammer would be overkill when it comes to anti-cap on nodes.

@ Zenton
I was thinking of only using light's hammer against specific comps that tend to train me very hard, like kittycleave or (sometimes) TSG. My instant heals are really lacklustre against those comps (unless I get a lot of divine favor procs), so I was thinking of improving my kiting capabilities as much as possible.

@Gigana,

Are you sure that Seal of righteousness AoE damage can stop capping ? Never tried it, I only use Seal of truth and insight

I think I used it in that way last season and it worked. Again, we can get holy power pretty fast nowadays and spam those divine storms + no serious team is gonna take a retri anyway, so it's sort of a moot point.

Just tested it in random BGs. Sadly, Light's Hammer doesn't interrupt capping. :/
