"The second HoT we received came from the interaction between Infusion of Light and Sacred Shield, which would put a HoT on our SS target when we used FoL on him. While more powerful than the last iteration, it was still far too weak to make any difference, and its limitation of a single target really made it untenable."All I can say is, you were doing it wrong.I healed all the way trough regular LK with my 4 pc T9 bonus for that very HoT. That "weak" HoT allowed me to often outheal raid healers if there were 2-3 sacred shields active on the raid.Again, you were doing it wrong if you think that HoT was weak or not worth keeping up.

I never said it wasn't worth keeping up, as we were using Flash of Light during downtime anyway. What I said was that it wasn't an interesting mechanic, it was limited to only our Sacred Shield targets so it was worthless for raid-wide healing, and it wasn't strong enough to keep someone up if we were stunned or incapacitated. Its healing was mostly opportunistic- heals that would've been grabbed by another HoT anyway. It didn't add any real throughput to our tank healing, and even HoT'd targets still needed more heals during AoE.

I'm surprised you could get a ret paladin or a prot paladin to Sacred Shield themselves or anyone else for that matter. I spent months trying to convince them the rets to SS the warrior tank and even made the prot paladin get buff watching mods to monitor his SS uptime. So really, the only HoT from SS I was getting was from my own on one of the tanks.

@ToxicYour protadin wouldn't SS himself? When there was a talent to make it have a huge uptime in the prot tree?? Weird.

@chokkaanot everyone picked up that talent, IIRC it was tied to the raid shield wall, which had situational use at best. And wasn't in most of cookie cutter builds.also as a protadin, holding aggro and going through my rotation was hard enough as is, adding another button (SS) wasn't going to make my life any easier.
