This is the most comprehensive patch I have ever seen.The illumination nerf is massive. I know that End Game Paladins were stacking huge amounts of int and spl crit and were basically running away with healing done but this realy effects the non Hardcore Healadin in an exceptionally sever way. I actually think this is the Biggest Paladin Nerf i've ever seen.Could be bad news for Warlocks too with all damage breaking certain CC effects. The fact that it doesn't mention it specifically in the Warlock / Priest section leads me to believe that this isn't overly significant, but prepare for some serious crying if it is.Another Shadow Priest nerf and Peripheral Healing Priest buff, but nothing of direct effect.Official Forums are going to be interesting this weekend, expect record amounts of crying on Paladin / Warlock + Priest forums. Warrior forums are a sorry sight at the moment anyway, and Hunter forums should be full of jouvenile delight!Bad bad news for Paladins though, just when they were finally starting to really shine at something.Do Blizzard realise how hard it is to get good healers these days? Paladins were really making a big difference to Raids with their huge healing viability. They still of course will be excellent healers, but it's going to be all +Mp5 +Healing now and basically turning into simplified priests.
