I raided ICC10 last night as a holy pally and I can confirm some of the things you posted. Firstly, Resto druids are very effective at the moment. Our resto druid was doing 2-3 times more healing than me, with no mana problems. It helped that our dps was extraordinarily good (we 9-manned fester, rot, and PP with a group that hasn't killed LK yet, 1 wipe for all three bosses). I am having issues with holy pally healing. I did a little more than 3k hps, which in itself isn't very good. But I also just felt useless. Maybe its because I am so used to casting 20k holy lights, but my heals just felt like they didnt do anything. Even a 3-HP word of glory on a tank would disappear with the next boss melee swing. I am going to continue to adjust my spell usage (especially since I used Flash of Light too much--its hard not to when you never run out of mana) but I would love to hear some other holy pally thoughts on healing. And now they are taking away speed of light from HL, FoL, and DL...I'm not sure why the nerf is coming to us. So anyways, healing went fine, but it was not because of my holy pally heals. Restro druids are imba right now, and RDPS is absurd. We are going to try to continue tonight, but to be honest I am more concerned about Valithria than I am for BPC or BQ.

I was in an ICC10 healing as a Holy Paladin with a Holy Priest last night, and actually I felt mostly the opposite. While Holy Light itself was nowhere near enough to maintain any sort of respectable HPS on our tanks and raid, frequent use of Holy Shock (especially on Daybreak procs) and replacing Holy Light with Divine Light on tank heals when they're taking substantial damage brought my personal healing up to a pretty satisfying level. It'll definitely take some getting used to all the new heals and seeing such a reduction in the amount healed by Holy Light, but I'm liking the direction it's heading. And that may or may not be mostly attributed to how fun Disco Heal (that is, Light of Dawn) is when your raid actually stacks to allow it to work to full potential.

"And now they are taking away speed of light from HL, FoL, and DL...I'm not sure why the nerf is coming to us. "I wasn't aware of this :( Do you have a link to post?It makes some sense though, as haste has rapidly devalued for us; I've reforged most of my haste to mastery.
