Every buff we've gotten in 3.0 is being removed one by one. Now we're back to relying on Sprititual Attunement for mana, meaning other healers have to give us special attention, thus reducing our desirability in raids.To those of you who approve of these nerfs: everything here except the Art of War and Righteous Vengeance changes is a PvE nerf, and no one with half a brain ever thought our sustained DPS was OP, at least not at 80. Even GC himself said our PvE DPS is fine, then they turn around and slay us in a whirlwind of nerfs less than 2 weeks after 3.0, despite a "working as intended" at Blizzcon, after over 2 months of beta testing.They claim they're being surgical. Nerfing every seal, killing our mana regen, AND completely reworking two other talents all in one build is NOT surgical.They claim they're not nerfing people due to QQs. They hotfix our 51 pt talent 2 days after it goes live, without testing it on beta or PTR first, and after the tree had been extensively tested in beta for over 2 months and claiming the class was reasonably well balanced at 80.In the process of Blizzard's zealous overnerfing of Ret, Holy has lost badly needed DPS for soloing and Prot has lost badly needed threat gen.If these new changes go live, every Paladin will have been completely betrayed and lied to by Blizzard & Ghostcrawler. Thanks Blizz!
