By paladin's LoD is hitting for about 1400 and change, with WoG being about 3600-3800, all per holy power. So? Well, a 6 target LoD will be ~1400*6= 8,400, transfered through beacon for 4,200...
LoD at its maximum power is still a larger tank heal then maximum power WoG. Way to absolutley fail at design. The Tower change was bad because it devaules HL, and the LoD change was bad because it did nothing except lower maximum raid HPS.
It's also still better to spam the tank (now with divine light) and use light of dawn, then it is to actually target raid members to give them healing.
Since Light of Dawn still transfer to the beacon this is great for tank healing. Guess we will just have to stack mana regen and judge on cooldown to be able to sustain spamming an expensive heal.
I can't believe I actually though Cataclysm was gonna be different than WoTLK.
Some math for those who are interested, note that this might have the wrong stacking of healing mods, I forgot if I updated this part of my spreadsheet.
Pure DL SPAM on beacon, no ToR
DL SPAM off Beacon:
~5,000 HPS Beacon
~10,000 HPS Raid
DL SPAM ToR (note that the reduction of LoD makes using HS in this rotation less HPS for higher HPM)
~10,000 HPS Beacon (
~3,000 HPS Raid
DL+HS SPAM ToR
~8500 HPS Beacon
~4000 HPS Raid
HS+DL Rotation, No ToR
Do you guys see the absurdity of this? Tower of radiance is now a loss of HPS.
For giggles. Renew spam with similar stats is:
~1200 HPS per target

Until they start reading the feedback that says, "Light of Dawn transfers to the beacon target" I'm pretty sure there will be more unannounced changes. Since they apparently don't read feedback from holy paladins, we can only hope they will stumble upon the problem on their own sooner rather than later.
There are so many things wrong with paladins mechanically right now its a joke. I thought they were going to get rid of the "increases X by Y%" talents, and yet we have a massive 30% one that is required to make Holy Shock not terrible...
I doubt it. The LoD -> BoL bug has been reported and talked about on the forums since Beta.
They messed up.
The people at the top saw people complaining
The devs were like theres bugs that need a patch that wont be ready till next week
The top people were like do what you can
That happened to be removal of HL from ToR
grats top level leadership on not letting devs do their job.
