@ManatankThe reason so many people view it as a Paladin healing weapon is because of the nature of the proc. When the proc goes off, all of your heals *including overhealing* shield the tank with a *stacking* damage shield. So any healer who has it, when the proc occurs, is going to want to turn and spam the crap out of the tank to create the largest possible damage shield. Paladins are good at spamming the crap out of things, and they're probably already on the tank anyway. They're certainly capable of creating the largest amount of shielding during the proc's uptime. Since it's no upgrade over hard mode weapons in any sense other than the proc, it's logical to give the weapon to a tank healer who's going to be throwing big heals if your main goal is to improve the effectiveness of your overall raid. Thus, it's a Paladin weapon *if* improving the raid is your primary consideration.
