Holy
Holy Insight now increases the effectiveness of Eternal Flame, Light of Dawn, and Word of Glory by 50%. Effectiveness of other heals are still increased by 25%.
Talents
Eternal Flame periodic heal-over-time effect now heals for 40% more.
Sacred Shield
Holy: Sacred Shield now applies its damage absorption shield immediately, can be active on more than one target at a time, but the talent now costs mana and has 3 charges with a 10-second recharge.
Protection and Retribution: Sacred Shield is 30% less effective.

So I get a 30% revival nerf and pallies get buffed ><

Yes Its a buff, but to put us mid of the healers. We were dead bottom with the original change on the PTR. Don't compare a class being nerfed to a class being buffed. They just had to balance us out a bit.

You have to take into account that they made Eternal Flame not stack our mastery, and -every- hpally used that talent for that reason. That is a pretty big nerf on it's own, regardless of whether GC agrees or not. The Holy Insight buff helps make up for that, and the talent changes aren't really buffs to what we have in 5.3, BUT it will be nice to actually have a choice of talents.

Another note: the divine plea buff is just compensation for the seal of insight nerf.

The original changes included removing the mana return from melee attacks from Seal of Insight, and causing the EF HoT to not refresh/apply the mastery shield. Seriously decreased the potency of mastery as a stat (and therefore throughput in general), as it greatly increased the likelihood of the shield falling off before damage was taken.

Interesting to see the changes being made - 5.4 holy paladin will be something of a different beast compared to 5.0-5.3.

There did seem to be something seriously wrong with my healing in pvp and pve. My healing was so very weak. I have been healing in pve and pvp since classic. This is the worst it has ever been as a holy pally.
