Supposedly has a 1.8 second cast time and you have to be standing still? Thanks Ghostcralwer for the nerf

If you had actually bothered to read the blue post displayed on MMO you would see that they did.

But you just rushed here as fast as you could to have something else to scream about didn't you?

Ret is only getting buffs next patch, just a few healing buffs but still buffs none the less.

They probably tied the cast time removal to Sword of Light/Guarded by the Light, but since the 50% buff to Flash of Light isn't in yet, they obviously haven't been updated.

No. They added a cast time for holy paladins because they felt holy paladins had too much CC.

And this in regards to the original the world is ending post;

Its a nerf to holy only, and they say it is a nerf to our cc chain ability, but it is actually only a nerf against healer defense.

Holy will not be able to use this when being trained by melee. However, I will still use it in cc chains. If someone takes full HoJ and repentance, I will definitely cast BL on them as well because that spell serves no other purpose once the defense use has been removed. The CD will be available.

What Keten means is, they haven't added the cast time for Holy and the cast time removal for Ret/Prot, but the way they're probably going to implement it is through Sword of Light's passive for Ret (and possibly Guarded by the Light for Prot). He didn't say they weren't going through with it.

And obviously, PTR hasn't updated to reflect any of this yet.

Actually, I read the latest post on MMO which said:

Paladin:
"Blinding Light Emits a dazzling light in all directions, blinding enemies within 10 yards, causing them to wander disoriented for 6 sec. 8% of Base Mana. Instant. 2 min cooldown. 1.8 sec cast. 2 min cooldown."

They didn't differeinetae and last I looked Rets are Paladins

- Blinding Light has a 1.8 sec cast for Holy only. We think Holy's CC chains are too strong at the moment, but we don't think Ret or Prot need the nerf.

Look at it this way, it gives ret a utility for RBGs that holy doesn't have </sarcasm>

As far as I'm concerned Ret only really needs healing buffs.

Our burst is absolutely insane and requires no setup short of a button press. We're not fishing for burst like some classes.

Could our sustained DPS be better? Definitely, but I don't think it needs to be when you factor in that we aren't a Warrior/DK/Feral/Rogue; we're Paladins.

We have burst when we need it, utility when others need it, and (soon enough) heals when we need them.

I thought the same thing.
