Hammer of the righteous

Paladin
Hammer of the righteous this is mainly used for tanking but the damage it dose can barely even keep aggro what happened?
You combine it with avenger's shield, consecration, and holy wrath to hold aggro. Never use it alone.

That said prot really does need a damage boost, even compared to other tanks our damage is very low.

Its not mainly a tanking ability anymore. And its drop dead last in our aoe rotation. You mainly use it to keep the debuff up or when your other aoe abilities are on cd.

World of Logs disagrees with you. Strongly disagrees.
I haven't had any issues with Hammer of the Righteous. Sure it's not the damage of Crusader Strike, but it's not proving to be any less effective for aggro.
Once they allowed ret to use this ability it they figured they would nerf the ability to the ground where for rets its a questionable dps gain on like 8 targets meanwhile every other dps spec 1-2keys instant ae for 5x the damage.
