Light of Dawn + Relic of Chi Ji = rage

Am I the only Holy Paladin who is giving serious consideration to NOT using this trinket on any fight where I need to use LoD and there's some sort of ground effect or movement mechanic? (Which, to say, is most of the tier.)

Last night I made the mistake of keeping it equipped on Blade Lord progression... p2 didn't go so well, there was much screaming on vent when everything went white while we were trying to get through the initial group of tornadoes.

Good thing I had Empty Fruit Barrel in my bags, I suppose. Theoretically I could create a cancelaura macro for the trinket proc, but to be honest, I feel that a minimalist UI is necessary for me to keep my head in the fight rather than being distracted by numerous trinket procs and stuff. Asking me to heal, dodge tornadoes, AND be prepared to cancel a trinket proc on a moment's notice is not going to end all that well, or at the very least will take a lot of practice.

I'm just not very pleased with not being able to use one of my BiS trinkets because of a graphical bug/feature that Blizzard has not seen fit to fix. It's an easy fix - change the graphic to not be a screenblocking, eye-blinding, fire-hiding monstrosity.

So now that I've ranted, back to the original question - am I crazy for not even wanting to use the trinket whenever it's a fight that I need to LoD fairly frequently? Which is a lot of them on 25... I just feel that, even though it's an absurdly good trinket, anything that has a detrimental impact on the raid's situational awareness is not going to be worth using.

Its is annoying but it in no way prohibits others from executing the tornado phase. Unequiping the best trinket available to you just because its an annoyance to some seems a bit extreme.

I am sure they will fix this "soon". Seems no one is really a big fan.

So what exactly does this do? I'm going to be picking up the trinket on the weekend and I'd prefer to warn my raid or something.

Basically the trinket, when it procs gives you and your spells a celestial visual effect. This means the LOD looks like a very bright white ray of light.

It's also pretty annoying with Spinning Crane Kick, which I am using in p2 to heal people as we're moving.

The horrendous white graphic needs to go. The trinket should just have glowy sparks around my character, not around my spell effects.

That's a good point, Pallies and Monks both really have a hard time with this trinket.

You're right, Irial, unequipping the trinket totally is probably an overreaction, but I really am tired of flinching and being unable to see in front of my toon whenever I need to AoE heal.

Side note... I hate Ook and that fruit barrel. I have been in there at least once or more a day since I was able to do heroics and have yet to see that damn trinket drop. If I see another sword, chest piece, boots or bracers drop from him I am going to go postal.

Oh that is a shame. IT is a DAMNED good trinket and I'll actually be replacing this weekend with this BiS Trinket now that I have my cards! But it's a GOOD SOLID trinket - keep running !!!

The real question is why are you not casting Eternal Flame?

It's so obnoxious, really it is.

Yeah I agree Tail (well, you know I do!). I basically didn't use SCK in that phase for the same reason. Also, it makes Elegon transitions (where there are those puddles on the ground) annoying, and when my trinket procs I basically have to run out of the raid because I don't want to distract people from what they're supposed to be avoiding.

As far as I've seen, Light of Dawn and Spinning Crane Kick are the only major offenders with that trinket. Usually it's not a big deal, but yeah if your raid is having to dance around stuff constantly (like on the first two bosses of HoF) it definitely seems potentially detrimental.

I equipped my H HoU that I still have for some reason. I got yelled at for using LoD in the last phase of Blade Lord, but it's not really one of the heals you want to avoid using right there :(

That phase basically required me using LoD. At the same time, I'm making an explosion of light that completely obstructs at least my view, and the view of anyone near me. And it lasts for about one whole second, which is plenty of time for a tornado to come up and snag you. I barely managed to dodge when I first realized my folly.

Swaggle:

I feel like SCK wouldn't be nearly as destructive in p2, though, until you're right at the spawn point for the tornadoes.

Overall, though, yes, spell effects should not be affected by that darn trinket.

It also makes it impossible for anyone near you to see sonic rings on Zor'lok. It's pretty helpful.

I really like how it affects my divine aegis. Only other priest spell it works on is Holy Nova.

/face palm and now I know why my SCK is a white disc of doom only some of the time... and I need that trinket... I don't have another.

WTB hotfix that removes the visual effect for the trinket proc.

At least you haven't lost it, a couple times, to a pug Mage. :(
