Once again....AOE ABILITY IS FOR AOE.
First off, DS is not at 80%, according to the patch notes. For whatever reason they seem to have nerfed it back down to 60%. At 80% you needed 5 targets to make it a dps gain, at 60% you need at least 7, once you factor in cleaves, etc, from CS.
Otherwise, your post makes little sense. Obviously AoE abilities are for AoE. The question is why would you ever spec into a 60% DS? If you need at least 7 targets to make it pull ahead of CS, there seems little point in having the talent at all.
So what people are saying, in this very important thread, is that Divine Storm performs poorly. Can we get some comparative math on the Holy Power/Hand of Light Divine Storm versus this lovely version?
I, personally, enjoyed the back to back potential of Divine Storm. When mastery would have been on gear we'd have had a notable increase in procs and a greater aoe potential as opposed to... this...
Could I suggest to completely change it to
Divine storm: 25% base mana, 2 min CD. Increase the paladin's haste of melee attack and casting for 25%, and making the paladin's melee swing, VT and CS now strike 2 additional nearby enemies, dealing 50% damage as the damage dealt on the current target. While the affected by DS, the paladin will heal up to 4 raid/group members, including the paladin him/herself 5% of all damage down by the paladin. Lasting for 20 sec. During this effect, the paladin can not cast Zealotry or AW.
And I really want a great graphic effect for DS

Sometimes Blizzard will miss a very late change (such as this) while compiling a release build. It is possible that the 4.03a released today was compiled before the PTR change to 80% weapon damage took place. Unless Blizzard can clarify, this is what I'll assume is the case.

Out of curiosity, what's the far better/useful talent to put the point into?
