I've heard a lot of mixed opinions on Divine Light. I want to keep results on this, so in your post answer this question: Do you use Divine Light? (Y/N) - If yes, do you think it's a good skill or do you still believe it needs a change?
The reason I want to do this is if the results show most Holy Pally's feel its useless or don't even use it, maybe blizz will acknowledge that a change should be made.
Yes I use it and like it: 0
No I don't use it: 2
Yes - but think it still needs a change: 0
If you want to elaborate more please do, give reasons why you use it or why you dont. Some ideas to go off of:
Do you like it? Is it useless? Does it need a change?
I took a look at some things to draw my opinion:
I did a little test:
With 22.5k of mana starting at full,
I could cast 26 FoL straight until oom
I could cast 22 DL straight until oom
So in terms of mana use their actually pretty close in this test at least. Though you can say that 4 heals can make a big difference in a fight.
Now lets look at some other stats:
2 FoL basically = 1 Divine Light (not counting crits)
Divine Light On average for me with my gear heals 17k each time
Flash of Light on average for me with my gear heals 10-11k each time.
Flash of Light - Fast cast time semi-big heal
Divine Light - slow but big heal
I never use Divine Light honestly. With 2 FoL healing for the same amount as Divine Light i just don't see the use especially with the longer cast time. I don't know about anyone else but if my tanks below half health and he's still losing it fast I can't afford to wait for a Divine Light, I'd have more luck using FoL, a HS and WoG if its up to heal the tank then waiting on Divine Light.
The amount it heals is useful and nice but the slow cast time really is the deal breaker for me, but of course this is just my opinion.
I just find myself going to FoL rather then Divine Light each time.
So my Answer is : No.
