WOW...Blizz...sounds too good to be true....but I really miss the big buff Kings gives me right now. Will I ever use it at 2%.???

Well you have most paladins now going 11 points into protection for 10% kings now.In Wrath, you will only have to go 5 points to get 10%.So blizz is saving you 6 points to put somewhere else. The only reason they are making it 2% with improved kings going to 10%, is that they don't want you spending 1 point to get a 10% kings on tier 1.

Obviously no one will use the 2% version. Get the improvement talents and buff it back up to 10%.

I think the idea here, from what ghostcrawler said about it previously, is to offer BoK not as a baseline talent or so deep in the protection tree. It's a nice alternative, and as a tank, I like the idea that most paladins will probably talent for it, so that I can have the BoK and the BoSanc up in a run. 5 talent points isnt that bad when you dont have to spend any to get it. Remember the other trees were spending 10 10 points just to get to BoK, and now they can do in 5 what they previously did with 11.

It actually saves Holy 6 talent points, and Ret 1 talent point, to get the new Kings. Along with that, it gives Prot paladins the option not to take it at all, which can be called a lateral move instead of a buff or a nerf to Prot... since Prot will be rocking with BoSanc.It has to cost more, because it's at the very top tier. Talents are budgeted based on where they sit on the tree, and if that buff was at the very top, it would be pretty OP. Don't forget that BoKings used to be the 31 point talent for Ret...Overall, I'd call it a buff to Kings, because it's still the best scaling and overall most desirable buff in the game. We were spoiled by it being only 1 talent point, because it's just so great, but 5 points is pretty realistic, especially since it's so easily reached by any spec that wants it, without having to grab anything they don't want.
