Both of the nerfs to Prot are to balance PVP issues (I hate it when they balance classes around PVP, but I'll save that QQing for elsewhere).Touched by the Light scaling with STR will prevent Prolys in PVP, as tank gear has STR on it, but Holy gear does not, so no more unkillable Prot-spec PVP healers. There is no PVE-related reason to nerfing the CD on HoJ so I can only assume they have done this to nerf the still-limited CC Prot Pallies can put out in PVP. Seems a bit pointless now that Proly's will no longer exist, as the only people playing a tank spec in PVP are flag carriers or sadomasochists.C'mon Blizz, I'm sick of being chain feared/sleeped, give pallies some CC or a closer (JoJ is not a closer -_-).The RF change is, like another commenter said, probably because we'll have more damage output from the TbtL change and won't need the extra 10% threat. In one sense, this is good, as it'll make soloing with Prots a lot easier.
