I don't play a Holy Pally, I play Ret/Prot, I like these buffs. However, I feel for my fellow paladins, but I don't think Holy/Prot is still the only possibility, is it? You lose Sheathe of Light access, yeah. But what about Conviction? Coupled with Holy Power, you're STILL getting +10% spellcrit. Benediction's change in the Ret tree reduces all Instant cast spells' mana cost by 10%. So. Holy Shock Crits (for 90% of the base mana cost), you get an instant Holy Light (for 90% of the base mana cost). Toss in Divine Favor for an insta-crit Holy Light (macros ftw?) and you'll get back a huge amount of mana, have done a monstrous amount of healing to boot, and STILL can go 5 points in Prot (instead of 11?) to get BoK. I'm not in the Beta, this is all conjecture, but it looks to me like despite those changes--unless you're arena-ing--there's still quite a bit of synergy between Ret and Holy trees.http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?talent=sxA0gMzhVuMxRtaZVf0x is the build I am referencing.
