Topic Nerf Confirmed

INC QQ from paladins that thought they were good.
Sadly its the pallys who can take more than one hit that keep you alive and gold in your pocket.
I believe their intention was to nerf the ability to gain holy power so quickly by healing the beacon target and use LoD. Through that nerf it also messed up WoG. They should make LoD use mana again/ reduce the healing/ put a cd on it once again the way it was before so there isn't any abuse like there was before the hotfix. By doing that, being able to use WoG wont be messed up due to the nerfs on ToR. Thats just what I have been thinking.

It's apparent after looking at the new T11 armor that 3 year olds are in charge of the art department for blizzard so now its safe to see that timmay from south park is in charge of figuring out raids and healing for blizzard also
You, sir, are forbidden from critiquing anything related to artwork ever again. The rendered armor doesn't do the concept art justice. It is amazing and their standards for artists are just as high as they are for their programmers. Being a Blizzard artist is a dream job among artists. The style the game is rendered in makes almost everything look a bit silly, but I assure you: the concept art is badass.
Respect creatives. Our creativity spans over into revenge as well.

Also, I forget to judge quite often. I still come out with a lot more mana than other healers. This is also why I forget to judge. Nerfing mana returns from insight wouldn't have resolved this so-called issue.
Hey paladins, welcome to the crappy world that is healing right now. Begging and scrapping for mana is really not fun, but at least we're all here together now.
TBH though, you guys still don't really have it so bad.
I currently have 70k mana. If I desperately need that Word of Glory or Light of Dawn, and I have no holy power, the fastest way to get it is to cast holy shock, and then two flashes of light. That's around 12,000 mana down the drain, just so I can get an AoE heal or a big heal out. I could also just use Divine Radiance to AoE heal, or use Divine Light, and be more efficient mana wise and probably do a better job of healing.
That's really not so bad. As a holy priest I spend 12k mana on 2 flashes of light by themselves and for my investment I get a 10% reduction in the mana cost for my next big heal or AOE heal. 12k for 2 flashes, an instant, and a FREE big heal or AOE heal? Man I wish!
So while you're feeling so sorry for yourself, just think it could be worse - you could have hated the terrible holy power generation mechanic so bad that you decided to play your priest in cataclysm instead of your paladin.... =/
