In what world and in any sense of logic does this make this spell even remotely worth using? I personally see no reason to even use SotR anymore if I have to waste 3 HP to get such small hits.
"Holy shield no longer increases chance to block. Instead, it increases the amount blocked by an additional 10%, for a total of 40% damage blocked."
So it's become obvious that you guys seriously do hate this class. Someone explain to me how 10% extra damage blocked per hit is better then blocking 30% of the damage of a hit more often? I mean, maybe I failed math or something but this makes no sense to me.
It's become more and more counter-intuitive just to log into a paladin anymore.
