In it's current incarnation, divine storm is our AoE attack for when there are five or more mobs in melée range (four or less and crusader strike with seal of righteousness remains preferable). So DS has a niche, just a very small one. Whether or not you think it is worth speccing into an ability that is only useful on trash is your call. I kept it on my pve spec, mostly for soloing, but ditched it off my pvp spec. It's in a sad state for an iconic ability, so it'll probably be changed again.
I don't mind the changes to DS too much. It makes sense that it doesn't give one holy power because you aren't using DS for single target. If it gives you a HP from divine purpose proc then that's nice, but it isn't necessary to 100% of the time generate a HP.
What I want to know is why they changed the sound of DS. To me it just doesn't seem as cool as it did before and now sounds like a wimpy ability. Maybe it's just me, I always liked using DS cause it sounded cool and made it a more fun talent to use.
only useful on trash.
Well I'm probably just responding to a troll, but please, by all means enlighten us. Explain the many, many boss encounters where you would use the current incarnation of DS.
Let's see...in ICC...there's none.
Wait, I know. The whelps in Onyxia. Thank god we have an ability that will give us a small DPS boost in the whelps phase of Onyxia.
Just think of it as Fan of Knives.
if a rogue is in a aoe situation where it is beneficial to use FoK then he most certainly wouldnt be using SS at all.
