- Retribution now does 50% extra healing with Flash Heal. The Selfless Healer talent has been reduced to 20/40/60% bonus healing.
This should be a buff to self healing... and perhaps a slight buff to off healing for Retribution Selfless Healer. The mechanic should see Retribution gain better self-survival kit coupled with the added healing benefit from PVP power. I am guessing it was buffed to compete with Eternal Flame's self-healing. This is, however, a nerf to Holy... and which ever prot paladins take this.
General QoL change
- Sacred Shield's absorb effect is now dispellable, but the periodic effect is not.
A quality of life change. While I am not sure, I think it means that the sacred shield casted effect should be undispellable, while the absorption shields it periodically generates is. Basically means that we don't have to keep casting the spell, and Mages gain less benefit from it when they use Spell Steal.
- 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.
Straight up holy Nerf. While it nerfs Holy, it does actually go a bit of a way to making Ret more appealing in rated PVP.
