Well that's always a possibility, although in my opinion it's a bit cheap workaround and only leads to another problem. Setting up AOE abilities to single-target rotation will only cause problems further down the road. I think a lot of Paladins complained about having AOE abilities (DS and Consec) in single target rotation previously, and at least I got the impression that Blizzard agreed this being bad desing. Now taking DS off from shared cooldown would only drive us towards that direction again.The way I see it, DS should be holy power generator for AOE situations, sharing CD with CS just like now. Holy Wrath should be then made (via talents) a proper AOE finisher as for now it's extremely bad "filler" with it's meteor-effect, high mana cost, long CD and low dmg.Removing HW from single target rotation would definitely open a "gap" that somehow needs be filled. For that I'd like to see a low/medium damage melee ability that would also refresh/extend Inquisition duration.I know that talking about new abilities at this point is totally unrealistic, I don't for a second believe we'll go down that road with upcoming patch... probably not even with the next one. If something happens, it will probably be fine tuning existing abilities/talents.Really, there are multiple very well thought solution models out there. The Ret community, it's most "talented" members from both PvP and PvE have offered Blizzard numerous routes to solve the burning problems (aoe, boring rotations, low survivability, mobility, you name it...) that have been raised since the beta days. So it's not that community wouldn't have submitted, it's either that Blizzard don't agree on the actual problems, they just don't have time/means to make fixes or then all the good ideas have drowned into the river of tear on the official forums.But like always, we'll just keep waiting.

Sorry, a reply mistake from my part... with cheap solution I meant taking CS off from shared CD with CS.
