5.2 PvP notes

Balance, Feral, Windwalker, Retribution, Shadow, Enhancement and Elemental now gain 25% of the bonus healing provided by PvP Power (was 0%). Dedicated healers will continue to gain 50% of the bonus healing provided by PvP Power and 0% damage from PvP Power.

Do you think this will help Ret be viable / be more viable or is the change lackluster?

Well, right now on the PTR the change is almost unoticable unfortunately
My gear isnt that great, but i'm running about 48% pvp power (stacking resil, am sure it would be different otherwise) and it gives about a 12% increase in heals (obvious math)

So instead of a 33k heal, i get a 36k heal

Doesnt feel that amazing, unless you are a class that can stack PvP power :S

Fortunately (since this is the ret forums) Sword of Light is going to increase our Flash of Light heal by 100%, instead of 30%

And combining the two, makes our heal (doing rough math here since SoL change isnt on PTR yet) around 52k, which is a much needed increase

Ultimately, will it make us viable? A bit moreso in arena, since there is alot of nerfs going around, but in rbgs, unless you are good caller or friends with an rbg leader, gl trying to find a group, because we still don't have the level of consistent dmg/cc needed, and it looks like GC has no plans on changing that this patch :S

BS we should get 25% to damage

Hmm sounds like a step toward making our heals viable again. I don't expect anything like Cata's x3 word of glory anymore but this will help.

From what Ghostcrawler has been saying we only recieved a 20% ish nerf to our healing before the 5.1 patch. If thats actually the case then we should actually be viable again seeing as how thats when I went from I love PvPing as Ret to Ret is f'ing broken

They said they're planning on not giving Shadow this buff. Or at least not much of it.

Flash of Healing now heals for 100% up from 30% for Ret through Sword of Light.

Not so nerfed, except for Prot (who usually doesn't care about this talent and if they do, has a ton of Vengeance to power their Flash of Light) and Holy (who have strong heals anyway - and now Holy Shock affects Selfless Healer).

The Selfless Healer change is more than offset by the Sword of Light change; 160% of 200% is more than 205% of 130%. PvP power is gravy on top of that.

I believe the quote was that they intend to offset the change for Shadow in other ways. As in, "we're buffing PvP power in general, but nerfing Shadow healing specifically". Haven't been following priest notes, so I'm not sure if they've followed through on that.

Looks like they did. Flash Heal is nerfed for Shadow, but provides more healing if you're Disc or Holy through a Passive.
