Holy prism and Sacred shield buff

Because I said so!

I'm wanting sacred shield to renew every five seconds instead of six (Thats if you have no haste) and to have a baseline absorb of around 10k at 90 instead of the 695 that it gives me. (With my gear on I'd expect it to be a 22.5k absorb)

I think Holy Prism should have a ten second cooldown, it would help make up for the down time we have when you have to wait for Crusader Strike because you don't want it to crash with Judgment. Perhaps the healing portion could be increased as well, I like the support heals ret has to offer.

I never have felt like I have much waiting as ret. If anything, I find it hard to squeeze in Holy Prism as it is.

Perhaps its because you have more haste, I would really like the utility of being able to help support my healers, maybe seal of insight could cause Judgment of light on targets again for ten seconds, a chance to heal players for 0.75% of their displayed maximum health and limit it to 180 procs per minute or something?

I wouldn't mind doing less dps if my off healing was a little larger.

Prism doesn't need a tweak, you just need more gear - and I don't mean that to be rude or anything. Prism still has its place as Ret, even at higher gear levels. I prefer it for dailies, scenarios, grinding, and 5-mans.

SS needs to apply its absorb on cast, not six seconds later though - who the hell thought that one up?

Blizzard changed it because of all the people casting it to force procs between when it normally would. :/

Now that the 30-second buff is undispellable they could probably push the cooldown up to 20 seconds or so and make the first absorb immediate though.

A CD is a silly idea, especially one that long, in case you need to change its host.

All they need to do is put an ICD on the shield proccing. That means repeated casting won't put up the shield each time, but it can still be immediate on cast.

That would be a fantastic change.

Yeah, I wasn't considering switching it to other targets. A longer cooldown would certainly hurt that.
