Problem with Paladin AoE DPS

Paladin
Rotation:

Consecrate, Divine Storm, Judgement, wait 3 seconds, Divine Storm, Judgement, repeat.

Did you see it? Three seconds of nothing to do. The problem with Paladin AoE DPS is that we're stuck with just sitting there waiting on a cooldown while our DPS goes down during that three seconds.

Here's what I'm thinking: Give Divine Storm a greater chance to give us one Holy Power. Make it a separate talent, change the mechanic, I don't really care. My DPS is fine as is but that wait is painful.
3 seconds?

zero haste?
no other fillers?

forgot you had Inquisition?
We're not an aoe class anymore. The sooner you accept that, the happier you will be.
paladin aoe?
what is this you speak of?
(and you forgot holy wrath not that it does crap anymore)
That's exactly my point. Blizzard has basically changed them to strictly boss-DPS/Tank. It really isn't fair that our DPS is #!@% during trash mobs and a lot of our stronger abilities are only very powerful against Undead and Demons.

Why does it matter? Blizz is doing away with the "Lets just AoE everything down" idea.
/facepalm i'm to sleepy to deal with stupid right now. I'm napping until cata comes out.

This is the extent of my aoe dps.

HoW > Exo > TV > CS > Judge > HW

Yeah thats right. There is no aoe rotation. Ill replace CS with DS if there is 7+ mobs otherwise I just stick to this.


This is actually a pretty accurate post.
