First thing Matt you need to get recount.Second get a great Retadin, and have your Holy Paladins sync with him (yes that means paying attention to your JoL and JoW to make sure they get re-judged if they fall off.The mana, and especially health regen is amazing. Your raid should rarely have to heal your rogues, enhancement shamans, hunters, and fury warriors again. You provide similar mana regen to the entire raid rather than to one group as well.At the end of a fight have your DPS check it's recount. And you'll see how much JoL healed for and how much mana JoW gave back.Then crunch all the numbers and force your DPS to pay you a discount for pots they didn't have to use. : )As for the namby pamby healer comment... get a life or grow up. Healers make raids possible and this idea that you are some limp wrist if you heal is stupid, and perpetuates stupid ideologies that keep people from healing.Truth of the matter is that Paladins are the least mamby pamby healers out there. We have high STM and wear plate.

"As for the namby pamby healer comment... get a life or grow up.

It's still namby pamby. We're wearing plate, for the love of Uther. And when we spec Holy/healing, the melee aspect of the class goes to waste. Seals go to waste (if we don't have a Retribution Pally with us).I never said healing is stupid. Get your facts straight. But healing as a Paladin is counter-intuitive. You're a melee class in plate and you ignore all that when you start healing. Sure, it helps when you get hit, but the point is that Blizzard could've made it so that Paladins worked on a different healing mechanic that relied on Seals and Paladins being in combat. I'm not even referring to DPS here. It's just a design opportunity gone to waste.You like healing? Great. I like healing, too. You enjoy being in the back of the raid wearing all that heavy armor and badass shield? I don't. It doesn't make any sense. Healers are great. Healers make groups work. But a Paladin healer is still namby pamby.
