What I don't understand about the shockadin build is where it comes in handy. If you want to main heal or heal in arenas, holy/prot is the best due to shortened BoP cooldown and kings. For pure DPS, nothing is going to beat a well geared ret paladin. And for solo grinding, a prot paladin can take on several mobs at a time and kill them all. Shockadins seem to be trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, blizzard doesn't want paladins as offensive casters. I can maybe see where it might be useful in battlegrounds (not arena because you lack sustainable damage and need to sacrifice too much +healing). But overall the spec seems to be intent on achieving the true hybrid synergy that the paladin should be capable of but failing miserably.
