I have mixed feelings about this change:As a Protection Paladin, I'd use JoW almost exclusively, because being a mana-tank sucks when you're out of mana. More mana conservation = more HotR/SoR spamming = more WIN.The healer is responsible of keeping my green bar full, not me.As a Retribution Paladin, I only use JoW, so I don't care.As a Holy Paladin, I prefer to use JoW to keep my mana up at all times so I can keep the tank alive, but I'm sure some healadins would use JoL instead to boost their healing, and they surely will appreciate this change.quote:Puck: "Seems like the perfect solution should be "causes no threat unless Righteous Fury is active", much like Ret's threat-reduction talent"/agree 100%

Not very high level on this alt but I've never seen a pally that can't keep threat, hence why I'm interested in trying it out.

@SchadowI think you're the disillusioned one here. For one, I never have mana issues offtanking, as I simply use Seal of Wisdom, and if anything, it keeps me from pulling aggro off of the main tank on fights like Patchwerk, that require "meaningful" threat. Even if you didn't want to use SoW full time, you should treat it like hunters treat Aspect of the Viper...Use Vengeance/Corruption until your mana bar is at 10%, then fill up again with some SoW procs...it works even better if you have the minor glyph that cuts the cost of the Seal in half. We don't have threat issues and we don't have mana issues...we're fine...we don't need JoL...Of course, I'm biased, because I'm Tippocabra (though I did get a sex change and changed back to my original name of Tippo) from Medivh...so I cause this ruckus :P

@d503I'll take your word for it - maybe it's a gear thing for me. Seal-swapping may be the answer until I gear up a bit. Thanks for the constructive comment.
