I think you're onto something there! You could have started with this sentence and left the rest out, but since you went through all that trouble, allow me to respond in kind:
Tier 1: Mobility is great for tanks.
Tier 2: Having a reliable ranged CC/stun/slow is certainly useful.
Tier 3: Sacred Shield increases the crit chance of Word of Glory, which is a serious part of our toolkit again.
Tier 4: Cooldown reduction seems pretty great.
Tier 5: With no cooldown on WoG, and the stacking nature of Bastion of Defense, Holy Avenger seems like it would be great for burst healing. I will probably take Divine Purpose though, since it spices up the rotation.
Tier 6: Damage is Healing! Healing is Damage!
You guys seem to always argue the same conflicting things:
If any one talent/tier is obviously true tank/healer/dps related, then that talent is the obvious pick for your spec, and everyone complains that there isn't really a choice.
If all talents are more ambiguous, general usage talents, everyone complains that the choice doesn't matter.
