Why not Sanctified Wrath for PvP?

Paladin
I hardly ever use Avenging Wrath in pvp anymore.

Most people will just CC/Kite me, making it 100% useless. I'll generally get more damage output through SW because I'll be able to use Hammer while being kited, and you have a longer open to not have the CD wasted with the increased duration.

It's also worth noting that Hammer of Wrath hits really hard, and in some cases harder than Templar's Verdict. Generally plate targets will take very minimal damage from TV when Hammer would do nearly double the damage.

Not sure if serious? A 20% damage/healing increase is ALWAYS useful if you use it correctly and at the right time. If you run up to an enemy and pop it immediately, yes, you will get CC'd. Your fault for not playing smarter.

If you're THAT concerned about CC during cooldowns you're still better off using AW than not. For example, use it to bait CC because it's so visible. Once you've built up some diminishing returns, unload Holy Avenger/GoAK.


I think he meant holy avenger not avenging wrath.
