Are you people serious? I read this and thought "ok when is he going to say something we haven't all known for months?". The stat ordering is really old news and the only thing remotely new is about the mastery changes, and instead of some theorcrafting or even analysis he just says "when this is live I'll check it out."If you have nothing to say, don't write a column .Ps downrate away - I know it's never ok to say anything negative even if it's the obvious truth.

I was thinking the exact same thing. From day one I was reforging crit to either haste or spirit. If you didn't know all of this information by now, you shouldn't be playing a Holy Paladin unless you just started one after Cataclysm. And who wants to be one when other classes (like Priests) are completely OP right now?

Believe it or not, not everyone has been playing a holy paladin for years. I try to cover topics that are relevant to everyone. I had a lot of people requesting a breakdown of each stat so that they could see why a given stat was better than another. If you have a topic you'd like to see covered, please submit it and I'd be happy to talk about it.If you're an "elite" player that's been playing a holy paladin for years, I have some bad news: I don't have any "secrets" to give you (and neither does anyone else). If you're the type of player that reads up on their class every day, carefully parses patch notes for changes, and is constantly working on improving, then you're already doing everything you can. What are you looking for from this column? Do you want more information on specific boss fights? Do you want more "looking towards the future" discussion about possible improvements? Reader suggestions and requests guide the direction of this column, but just saying "this column sucks" will make me ignore you.

Chase, thanks for the reply and I do apologize if I came off meaner than I intended. My response was meant to be in reply to the couple of "awesome article" posts at the beginning. The article was fine, just didn't have anything new really. To be constructive, I'd suggest that you couldve done a whole article on the mastery changes that would be more thought-provoking -- mastery bubbles are bigger and last longer but still don't stack or transfer to beacon - talk about that and is it still going to be good or still useless (I think the later). Maybe situationally useful? I'd find listening to someones thoughts on that much better than the same stat priority. Your article on the tier bonus is an example of a good one - I thought the conclusion was pretty obvious but I see people ask the question all the time and you covered it well. Anything on pally specific tips for boss fights would be very helpful, as you also did before.
