Wait, does it even matter? 5 minutes is long enough. Heaven forbid you get a timer or something to keep track of Beacon to refresh it when it falls off.
30 SECONDS SEALS WERENT LONG ENOUGH, SO THEY BUFFED IT TO 2 MINUTES. BUT 2 MINUTE SEALS WEREN'T LONG ENOUGH EITHER SO NOW THEY'RE 30 MINUTES, WHY CANT THEY BE INFINITE TOO I MEAN ITS NOT LIKE 30 MINUTES IS ENOUGH TIME GOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD CHZBRGR
wtb seal swapping again. =(
The inherent problem with that line of thinking, though, is that paladins are not who they started out to be. We were intended to be a defensive buffing class, so constant blessings were all we did and it made sense. Since we are now tanks, healers and (once again lame) DPS, we are being asked to keep buffs up while performing another role. Do you think for a minute that mages would love it if they needed to deal damage and buff AI every 2 minutes? Or pally tanks, for that matter, needing to buff themselves with RF every two mins? Doubt it. All Im saying is that Cataclysm is adding a lot more chance for error, which is fine. But, lets do away with the trivial items that make healing harder than it has to be.
