OK i like holy power but the issue is when i think of rotations... i see no actual use for Divine Storm with the exception of multiple mobs. I see no use of using 90% damage ability when u can use a 225% ability. Perhaps it would be better to take Divine Storm off Holy power then i could actually incorporate it in a rotation on a single boss.

im not sure but i believe that like whirlwind divine storm is meant for AOE only fights now

Yes, it looks like it's meant purely for AOE fights, so you won't want to use it in fights with just one boss, or trash that's dangerous enough to need CC.
"Perhaps it would be better to take Divine Storm off Holy power then i could actually incorporate it in a rotation on a single boss."The whole point is that you aren't supposed to be doing that anymore. Blizz has stated as much. Currently, on fights like Saurfang, you're forced to not use half of the abilities in your rotation because of AoE damage. Hopefully Ret will finally have a decent single target rotation and an alternate AoE rotation like many other DPS classes.

i liked aoe though and once u get the rotation down u can use it just fine on the saurfang fight. I love DS with a passion but if it doesnt do damage even comparable with another spell (and both spells practically require holypower) then i wont be able to make it useable. Actually thinking about it with the "seals of command" talent i wont even really need it in multiple mob fights

Here's how I see it:For 1-2 mobs/bosses, you will use Templar's Verdict.For 3+, you will use Divine Storm.It's really no different than a rogue doing his normal rotation or casting Fan of Knives on an aoe pack as it is now (in other words, divine storm will only be worth it in AoE situations).

doesnt the up to 90% split up between the number of mobs though? if so then its still probally more damage to finish off 1 move to next?
