Well, I'm pretty excited for what we are getting.1. An improved crusader strike. That's good, and I like the idea of a more complicated rotation. Plus, we don't know what the improvement will be. Sure, it could be lame, but I'm betting it will be sweet.2. An angel of something awesome (I hope). That's super duper good. But I agree that forbearance with it would be bad. Forbearance is just a bad mechanic anyway. I predict it will be gone altogether, or almost altogether.3. Holy Shock. What's not to like?4. Radiating heals while in combat. Situational, if we even get it, but cool and class appropriate.5. Sacred Shield being somewhat useful. Not a big deal, but it ain't a bad thing.Also, I want to respectfully point out that at the start of Wrath we were the best class this side of DKs. And just *before* the start of Wrath we were so titanically awesome (for about 3 weeks) that the other classes still haven't gotten over it.Now, it sounds like we will still have some weaknesses, but every class has weaknesses. Ours, as I see it currently, are:1. Simple rotation. This is apparently being addressed.2. Too much defence nerfs our offence. Also being addressed. And this is where the nerf to bubble comes from; you gotta give something to get something, in this case.3. Lack of mobility. Okay, this is a problem now and looks set to get MUCH worse with the proposed changes. Not so big a deal for pve, but I would like to see this addressed for pvp.4. Too much AoE, not enough single target dps. Well, we are getting more instant attacks, it seems, but what we really need is a better mechanic than seal of corruption/vengeance for our go-to single target seal. It doesn't work well with 2 handed weapons.So far, they seem to have directly addressed two of our weaknesses. Let's see what happens with the others.Cheers!
