Where are they coming from with these nerfs on holy paladin in 5.2?
There may be more but so far I've seen this

The absorb effect of sacred shield can now be dispelled. Okay, so now even more of our abilities we rely on can be dispelled. Making us more vulnerable and forcing us to have to straight heal more.

And Blinding Light being a 1.8 cast time for holy only, but not prot or ret. Firstly, does this even make sense? And second, again, more of our abilities we use instead of healing become useless. When getting low when healing isn't totally an option, this was a great tool. Now it's a cast time so we can get locked out with every single other paladin ability we have.
The absorb effect of SS can be dispelled right now. :/
Well just the 30 second sacred shield can, the 5 second actual damage absorb buff can't
No, the actual 6 second absorb can't. The 30s SS buff cannot be dispelled, it doesn't have "Magic" on the buff.

They need more monk healers, and don't want monks to be a badly implemented class.
Major buffs to Monks next patch for FotM status.

Tons of pallys. If they can frustrate you into rerolling it helps their numbers.

Yes the first part is what I said, the actual absorb effect cannot be dispelled (5.28 seconds for me). But the 30 second SS buff can be dispelled already. What they're doing is making this 5.28 sec damage absorb also dispellable.

If you're frustrated as a Holy Paladin in PvP and are thinking of going Ret to fix that... I have some bad news for you.

Actually they're flipping them: the shield will be dispellable but the 30-second buff will not be.
