Noob question: Are the 7% weapon damage from Seals of Command and the 16% weapon damage from Seal of Truth after 5 stacks Normalized, non-Normalized, or completely unaffected by attack power?Also does our Two-Handed Weapon Specialization mean that all spells based on weapon damage are calculated as (weapon damage X 1.1) or does it only apply to auto-attacks?

Two-Handed specialization affects every ability that is either a weapon strike or uses weapon damage in its calculation. It doesn't double-dip, by the way; if an ability is based of weapon damage, it doesn't get a second +10% boost. Admittedly, I'm not aware of any abilities that a Ret Paladin has that fits only the first criteria, but Arms Warriors also have Two-Handed Specialization, and their Executes get the bonus.Seals are not normalized; they all do more damage the slower the weapon is, even when procced by instant attacks, and they're all affected by your AP (if they do damage at all); when something does x% of weapon damage, that's after AP is applied to the weapon's damage. (whether that AP is normalized or no.)The only advantage to a fast weapon is that it allows you to fully stack Seal of Truth faster, but with it stacking from all your single-target instant attacks, that's a very minor bonus.
