I just played around with healing beta-side.Between narrowed casting times and the respective benefits of Infusion of Light, Flash of Light and Holy Light have clear roles. Flash works best as an instant followup (for a second target) to a critical Holy Shock; while Holy Light becomes the mainstay unless a player doesn't have an extra three-tenths of a second. I like that.The Glyph of Holy Light has been removed (currently listed as "broken.") Healing Hands aside, I think holy paladins badly need a long-range multi-target spell. Before Divine Light's announcement, I suggested a talent-based group heal for Holy Light (http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?sid=1&topicId=25399922276&postId=254795761938).Since, as Chase argues, Divine Light doesn't necessarily justify its own talent point, I think a couple of the 5-step talents in the Holy tree could be compressed to make way for something similar. Or, if Holy Light will become as exploited and problematic as Chase worries it will, it could be the subject for division for multiple targets.

I think Divine Light was made a talent to keep it out of the hands of Ret and Prot paladins. The whole, "Ret and Prot get too much healing baseline" deal.That said, when the mana cost is that high, and with a 3 second cast time, it sounds like it would be fairly prohibitive for them to cast it anyway. Especially when they can just eschew some damage for a Holy Shock on themselves.An interesting activated ability, another heal (group or no) that adds thought and extra mechanics, or even letting you center Healing Hands on a target would be amazing.
