@Dukenukemx - See? That wasn't hard to do, was it? Civil dialog is as easy as... spamming Flash of Light.I think Blizzard is smart enough to not fall into that trap, honestly. Every step they've taken, incrementally, has been to make Retribution more and more viable for raiding (and, thank God, PvP). They're not quite there yet, but they show signs of knowing what to do. 2.3 was a big step and the proposed change to Seal of the Crusader means they KNOW nobody uses it as a seal. They're smart, and I'm confident they're moving in the right direction.If judgements refreshed on ALL attacks, this is good for the class overall. I don't think Retribution is in jeopardy... remember that Judgements stay for 20 seconds and Holy Shock is on a 15 second timer. I'm sorry that I have Seal of Blood as my experience in raid DPS... I can only imagine the instability of SoC.Retribution can and should be brought in for the same reason you mention Enhancement Shamans are -- increasing raid DPS. If anything, the buffs to Retribution should be geared towards THAT, instead of refusing to make Seals/Judgements as part of a healer's spell cycle. I'm looking at buffing the class overall.IMO, the recommendation to have Judgements refresh on any Paladin attack (e.g. including Avenger's Shield) can only mean good things for the class as a whole. It should, in theory, even free up Crusader Strike for a different raid-wide buff.
