"And realistically, other than shield spam, when do you really need a shield for more than 15 seconds in PvE?"It's nice when you're preparing to take down a Big Bad solo. Cast PW:S, wait 10 seconds, and then pull the Big Bad. Then it breaks your shield but you can just reapply it and not die in the next few seconds. After 4.1 goes live (assuming this change stays in) then many of the Big Bads for dailies (ahem, Tank) will just rip through priests before Weakened Soul expires.

Eh, I usually sit around and wait for someone else to pull, then slap a dot on it. Not like I'm waiting long, even at the odd times that I'm usually doing my dailies.

Yeah, that's the problem, and the PW:S change is quite significant nerf for soloing (and is totally not called for, IMHO). Better solution is to have the shield still last 30 sec when cast on itself - that way it solves the problem with shield spam in raids and does not hurt solo priests.
