Tooltip updates require a client side patch. Since it's a hotfix you won't see the tooltip updated until they release an actual patch.
Why not buff other healers? Because lolhealz was for Wrath. Wrath had some cool storylines and quests, but it churned out a whole ton of terrible players. AOEtank + AOEdamage + unlimitedmana = blowing through heroics with no skill. Nobody learned how to play and those that did know how to play got lazy and some even forgot. Remember the joy of strategery!
I'll admit I forgot stuff >.>But it matters not, because Paladins suck now )= (Yes I'm whining about it).
Man, I must be a terrible player...because as a Holy pali I've been running out of mana despite all this "extra healing"
I don't play Holy Paladins, can anyone explain to me how at 3 stacks of holy power, healing even the whole raid for 3369 + some spellpower warranted a nerf? That's a drop in the bucket on 120K+ Health pools
I play a Holy Paladin, and while I too will join in the complaining, Holy Paladins were unarguably too good. By placing Beacon on the tank, spamming three Holy Lights, and then Light of Dawn-ing the raid, it was possible to heal the tank for 3-4 times the amount he would have been healed by a direct Word of Glory, and all for a completely insignificant amount of mana. This being said, the two pronged attack on Holy Paladins is overkill. In my opinion, simply reducing Light of Dawn healing by 40% would have completely solved the problem; Light of Dawn would no longer be the best choice for directly healing the tank, and Word of Glory is not enough on its own, so Paladins would have to resort to using their mana as Blizzard designed.Sometimes, I cannot understand why Blizzard makes certain design choices... Particularly this one after the mana issues of other healing classes are considered.
Surprised nobody has mentioned it, a number of pallys will now be running in to crusader strike the boss to generate Holy Power now.
There was no need to nerf Tower of Radiance in all seriousness. What they needed to do was fix the bug that allowed Beacon of Light to activate from each and every Light of Dawn target and Protector of the Innocent procs. That is why Light of Dawn was spammed so damn much, it is the extra healing from talents proc'ing off each other that made LoD worth it as a tank heal. After running heroic Grim Batol post ninja-nerf, I used LoD only twice. It's complete ass now. I spent most of my time standing in place spamming single target heals and I did not enjoy myself at all. Running around, using HL to build HP as a way to save mana, lining up people for LoD to milk the most healing out of your money's worth is what made the new healing situation interesting. Now, it's back to tank healing and spamming single heals... which if I remember correctly, it was the design intent to avoid this situation in the first place.Character Stats78,597 Mana5416 Spellpower1919 Spirit2146 MP5 unbuffed: 2472 with MightWoG: 1 HP = 4326LoD: 1 HP = 1743-1764 (Game Reports 2753 on Tooltip, Hotfix aka Stealth Nerf didn't fix the tooltips)Naked Holy Paladin These numbers were taken from average heals just now while wearing no gear, but in holy specWoG 1HP = 2853LoD: 1 HP = 852Also, the Seal of Insight glyph does not buff Word of Glory or Light of Dawn. The other heals aren't buffed by 5% like the tooltip says, they are buffed by 4.3% in reality.Edit:
Nerfing a pally is always fun ^^
LoL. As a healadin, i must say.. This sucks. Nerf all you want, but this is bad. I go out of mana toooo soon right now. Plus.. Light of Dawn..? Please.. I've never really even used it in raids. It's too hard to build up for. I prefer Word of Glory as an extra tank heal.
I don't get what's so heroic about going into a heroic and coming out with full mana and hp after an encounter.
I'm really glad no one from the raging paladins work at Blizzard
Ugh, I still play Ret even through the nerfs, and when I look at this, I keep thinking they'll do what they always do each expansion for the next one. Completely change the way Paladins play because they can't balance 'em for ^&*!.This is ridiculous. Sure, it had to be nerfed if indeed it was completely trivializing mana, but LoD was supposed to be our AoE Holy Power heal. Now, I doubt that button will ever be pressed.
paladins have always been the ez-mode class
ROCK LOBSTER and something about matching towels.... GET THAT DAMN SONG OUT OF MY HEAD! also, to pallies: QQ moar
