Forgive me for being stupid but I'm a little confused by Divine Storm right now. Doesn't it share a cooldown with Crusader Strike? Plus it no longer uses Holy Power, right? So when do you use it, since you'll want to use CS as much as possible to get your HP to max so you can use TV. Am I wrong?

Divine Storm shares a cooldown with crusader's strike. You choose divine storm when there's a lot of mobs. The only downside is, it doesn't generate any holy power. Therefore you are making a clear choice between AoE damage and building up to your next templar's verdict. I usually don't use it, if there's a proc I may, when there's a lot of mobs, other than that you wanna keep the crusader strikes coming because in the end a nice crit with templar's verdict will be more useful.

According to EJ, you need 5 targets for you DS to be a dps gain over CS, given seals of righteousness and seals of command.

I've been weening myself off Divine Storm while leveling to 85. IMO Blizz have made it basically useless. The shared CD with (I believe) Exorcism, the trend away from AoE in Cata dungeons, the lack of holy power it generates, the relative lack of damage it does on less than 5 mobs... it's just not worth the bother for me. Shame, as it used to be so cool. Ah well, onward and upward.
