We are going to fix the specific scenario where a PvP paladin with a Prot build but spell power gear can heal for more than a Holy build in the same gear. We want to do this without messing up the Prot paladin trying to tank in PvE.

We will probably not make this change before the end of the current Arena season, but you can be thinking about your teams for season 7 with this change in mind.

How pointless rofl.

Prot healing is the most worthless spec ever for a healer in 3vs3 or 5vs5, and thats what season 7 is gonna be all about.

Hurray for an other fail.

err.. yes it is.
protholy/healer/dps is as op as protholy/x in 2's... but it's not the healing output that makes it op :/
it's the 30sec cd silence. 20sec cd stun. unable to be instagibbed...

I've played against prot/dk/war teams at 2600 and the paladin had no trouble healing. I definitely welcome this long needed change. I would have welcomed it 6 months ago though ;P

That's two seasons in a row paladins were GIVEN gladiator.

The problem isn't that Prot is good. The main issue is that Holy doesn't offer much offensive power or alternative win vs opponent's healer. (Out lasting mana isn't a win)

Priest Mana burn
Druids Cyclone
Shamans Wind Shear
Paladin S5 repentance. S6 HoJ and silence S7?

No one is sad except paladins, sorry.

The 20 sec hammer is so retarded - and it has an influence on 2 healer setups in 3s.

These changes should be hotfixed in while 2v2 still matters, even though I agree they are ridiculous in the right 3's and 5's setups too.

^ Played a prothealer/disc/DK on my alt RLS and it was absolutely retarded, 3 specs who are all extremely resilient on their own, add them all together and we couldn't get anyone under 40%(as RLS!).

So totally ironic coming from someone who brags about playing hybrid specs to glad in their sig.

Should I say if cyclone were deleted from the game nobody would be sad except druids and the retards they've been carrying to glad?
