What do you mean it doesn't proc as often? It doesn't "proc" at all, it generates a new shield every time it ticks, which is dependent on your spell haste and hasn't changed at all since 5.3.
Also, the reason that it's on the gcd is because it'd be just plain stupid if it wasn't. If it wasn't on the gcd then you'd be able to just macro it into every single other ability you have and ensure that it's always up with zero thought and zero effort, and at that point it might as well just be a passive ability that is always on and doesn't require any refreshing.
people havin to wait on RNG to get there peices just for it too work should not be intended either
They don't have to wait for their tier for it to work. EF is superior to SS even without the set bonus, the bonus just makes it even better than it already is.
I don't even know what you're trying to say with the rest of your post. It almost sounds like you're saying that prot paladins are underpowered or being shafted because you think they have to go out of their way for their healing, in which case, no. There's nothing "underpowered" about prot paladins in any way shape or form.
