Just wanted to say that I personally feel WoG is way overpowered as a prot paladin. Maybe it scales poorly from 80-85 so it's not as ridiculous, but I kind of doubt it. Anyway, since I feel like this skill is going to get nerfed into the ground at some point (rightfully so), I wanted to suggest some ways to change/de-emphasize it for prot and still give them something cool in later tier talents.
My suggestion is two things:
1) Add this to Sacred Duty: A 50/100% cast time reduction on the next Exorcism after you use Judgement
2) Add this to Guarded by the Light: 50/100% increased critical strike damage on Exorcism (unless I'm mistaken and it now crits for 200%, unlike all other hybrid caster's spells), and a % damage bonus to Exorcism. You could also make this so it only applies when you have Holy Shield active, but I think being tied to Judgement's cooldown (practically speaking at least) is enough of a restriction.
What I think this would do is a few things:
- Get away from WoG for Prot, which seems pretty ridiculously OP now
Give Prot paladins another button for single target tanking (I personally feel like this is still missing just one thing in its rotation, while AOE tanking is great)
Give good Prot players another way to keep their threat up on boss fights
Give Prot paladins a way to do their own version of "tab-Sunder" in a situation where they might need a quick threat boost on a second mob being tanked, but can't/shouldn't do the full AOE tank rotation
I'm sure you are coming up with your own solutions internally, but personally I feel like the nerf hammer's going to drop on WoG sooner rather than later, so I might as well throw out a suggestion that I think would let you take Prot paladins in a new direction instead of nerfing a spell that's not overpowered for the other two trees. This is also why my current tank spec doesn't have WoG talents (aside from GBTL).
I also want to say that GBTL makes WoG a win button in pvp for me. Not that I pvp that often, but it just straight up ruins almost any class's hope of killing me because I can and will survive long enough for 3 holy power and a WoG. This is probably incredibly obvious, though.
