If my job was to parrot the ideas and conventions of the majority, then what good would I be? What good would I be if all I did was speak to the choir of priests and reaffirm beliefs. If my dedication to writing a single section of the entire article offends you, then I can't help that, but honestly I'm appalled that you think it is my duty to not challenge convention. What would be the point of reading my articles be if I told you things you already thought for yourself?Blizzard has said again and again they do not want Lightwell to become a passive ability. That means the ToC ability is out completely, so why keep suggesting it? And, what constructive good is it for me to just cry about it like everyone else? Say "oh Oh OH Blizzard! How dare you make us take this talent!" I would rather work with what I have, and honestly, from an experimental standpoint, I am very excited to see what happens when holy priests are all suddenly armed with Lightwell. People will have it, play with it, and like I said in the article, what comes out of that could be great, horrid, or much of the same. But we can't know until then because we have not given it a chance. Not in mass. There are priests who tell me "I never took it ever because I was told it was bad." They just sat on the opinion of some priest, or guide, or something. What do I say? Try it out, even if everyone hates it, and give it an honest chance. You might start to see it the way I do. But if you think I'm wrong then by all means.As for elite players... It's quite a poor point to bring up, as where Lightwell would help most in the average fight (a point in the encounter where healers are strained and need extra help) is a strain most elite guilds do not have. Elite players are only going to respec from their "this is my spec for this raid" if there is a fight that is hard enough to demand it. And when that happened, if Lightwell had a beneficial support to bring to the strategy then I'm sure they would use it. I am not the only player in the upper rungs who believes Lightwell is a strong spell, and an option to be utilized if the right situation arises. But the ideas of elite players and the ideas of average players often butt heads. You can read many threads on the official priests forums about this, where players will say "WHY DID THIS GOOD PLAYER TAKE THIS AWFUL TALENT?!" Obviously, because they had a use for it. Lightwell is a talent like that, waiting to be tapped into by anyone who has the drive to do so.That said, I wrote up a lengthy article on lightwell and explain how I see it being used. You may want to look into it.
