5.4 PTR Possible PvP nerf to Selfless Healer?

Just got off of MMO Champion and read this:

Selfless Healer (Protection, Retribution) no longer generate a charge of Holy Power from successful Judgments.

Perhaps this is common knowledge by now and I have just missed the train, but this feels like a huge nerf for Ret PvP. Basically, if we choose to go with Selfless Healer for the added healing support, we lose out on a) much of our damage from not being able to get out Templar's Verdict as fast or b) Less overall healing via less Word of Glorys.

Am I reading this info wrong?

It wasn't a real change. Selfless Healer never generated Holy Power for Prot or Ret. However when they added it to the tooltip for Holy they mistakenly added it to Prot and Ret's versions as well. This change was just a tooltip fix.

Yes, because we don't get holy power because of selfless healer. Only Holy does.

Ret gains Holy power from judgments because of the skill "Judgments of the bold" not selfless healer.

Yup, got it now. Ret still has HoPo generation from Judgment in 5.4, regardless of taking Selfless Healer or not.

Oy. I should comprehend my spellbook better.

It was legitimately confusing. Lots of people asked if prot/ret were going to get two HoPos from each Judgement.
