Holy Shock changes!? Holy CRAP that is awesome.My question is why the Flash of Light / Holy Light switch? Was it really necessary to make FoL the new Holy Light and Holy Light the new FoL?

If they'd simply flipped them around in every respect, yes, that would be pointless, but that's not what they did. Saying "Holy Light is the new FoL" is only true in a very limited sense. It takes the place of FoL in certain ways, but it's definitely not "the new FoL" in most respects.

It just seems strange that they would flip FoL to being the larger heal when for all of WoW's life it has been the small one.

I agree on that respect. Even if performance is not exactly flip-flopped, the fact that Flash of Light is going to be a bigger heal than Holy Light will really throw me off. Not to mention the naming. Shouldn't the full holy light be stronger than a quick flash of it? I guess I am picky but that bothers me. It would be like if Flash Heal was a bigger heal than Greater Heal for priests. It makes me feel all funny inside.

Flash of Light isn't "larger", it's only faster. Holy Light is going to hit harder, it will just have a lower total HPS. I agree that the naming scheme does seem kind of off...

I've been playing with the number displayed on the tooltips at wowhead and Flash of Light has a bigger average heal than Holy Light. I know this doesn't count SP scaling, so you must have more info than me since you did mention SP scaling in the article. Does HL actually scale better than FoL?Wowhead links:http://cata.wowhead.com/spell=19750http://cata.wowhead.com/spell=635
