Remove Holy Power (HP). Period. I don't want to be a rogue and I don't want our abilities stove piped by using HP. Let us use mana again as our only resource. We could seal twist to regen mana as we get low or pop cd's to restore mana.
When Holy Power goes away we could use Exorcism as a self-heal or cast Flash of Light. Let Exo be a mana sink for a health regen trade off. Hitting the target hard, purging his soul and returning health to us on a decent cool down or unless we get an Art of War proc. A minor glyph could be used for PvE Paladins to not have Exorcism self heal.
We could honestly bake a lot of abilities together. Here are some ideas:
- Burden of Guilt glyph changed to reduce censure by 2 stacks but gaining the full use of Seal of Justice without switching seals. PvP
- Consecration returned to all specializations. Bake Light's Hammer with Consecration and Devotion Aura for example. Consecration becomes Light's Hammer if you select it as a talent. Any party/raid member standing in Consecration will be healed, immune to silence/interrupt, 20% damage reduction and enemies take dmg. That would be a huge game changer in PvP and PvE. Same long CD that Light's Hammer is already on.
- Consecration could be used with both Holy Prism and Execution Sentence in a similar way. While standing in Consecration if Holy Prism is used on an enemy, Holy Prism applies a Sacred Shield type absorption effect on friendlies. If Holy Prism is used on self/friendly than it will spread out and amplify consecrate's DoT. Execution Sentence, while standing in consecration, melee haste/mastery(whichever is the greater stat) is increases over time as the hammer falls and it pulses heals out for a percentage of the damage done with the stat buff remaining for a short period (say 10 seconds).
Our Paladin abilities could be used in so much better and fun ways. I want to feel epic and engaging again. I don't want to wait for HP to ramp up to use abilities. Let me worry about short ability CDs and mana again. Other classes should think twice before engaging us in combat. Not turn to us first because they can burn us down the easiest.
Blizz, I want to hit hard outside of CDs. Pretty please with a cherry on top.
