I used holy wrath for the stun and consecrate to grab mobs and break stealth all the time. I'd love to see these abilities returned to us, if they are not considered balance issues.
@Tiraslin, I knew exactly what you meant when you said you leveled holy from level 1. Although technically we didn't choose a spec until level 10, I healed my questing partner from the time I got my very first healing spell, which was level 1 or 2 back then, I believe. I didn't even try ret or prot out until I reached max level, and decided I hadn't missed out on anything. I'm happy to level holy even though it means killing a little slower, my only gripe is the current lack of aoe.
