Wow, uh, to be honest I thought Inquisition was one of those obvious targets for hate, like lawyers, tax inspectors and syphilis. I had no idea anybody ever actually liked it. Ever since I learned it, I've always said it's less an exciting new ability and more a burdensome obligation.I don't know about anybody else, but I'll never have enough spare holy power going around that I'll feel happy about pissing it away on an anticlimactic buff to try and maintain a level of DPS that other classes get as baseline (even if our numbers were comparable to other classes lately), rather than turning it into a big exciting Templar's Verdict crit.

Combat Rogues and slice and dice say hi!

My eyes have been opened to Inquisition since I started leveling a Rogue - it's really similar to Slice and Dice. The difference is that my output goes to the MOON when I pop Slice and Dice, where Inquisition doesn't really feel like it has that much of an effect. I'm not sure what they could change on it to keep it from being a perfect analog to SnD, but I bet that's the feel they're going for and if they upped it just a little I'd be more excited about it.

Ferals with Rend, Savage Roar, Rip, Mangle botting and praying for clearcasts to make that Bite not screw your rotation send a hello as well!

It's nice that it adds a bit of complexity to our rotation. Like the author mentions, would it really be fun using TV for every finisher? It's also a (minor) skill gate: refreshing the buff optimally adds to your DPS.

For those of you who are defending Holy Power and comparing it to a rogue or feral druid, I will give you this quote by a good friend who was a ret through-and-through until cataclysm:"If I wanted to play a rogue, I'd play a rogue."And I have a really hard time arguing against that position./salute to Kolyarut and every other ret paladin who speaks up against paladins being rogues.

"If I wanted to play a rogue, I'd play a rogue."What exactly is a ret paladin? Before cata it was a faceroll spec that got no respect because it was a faceroll spec. So when you say things like this I take it to mean "I want to go back to facerolling."

As an assassination rogue i have to keep up slice and dice and also rupture on the target to have viable dps. While poison procs from rupture give a nice boost on boss fights, in dungeons the combo points are wasted since mobs will die fast. So much harder to keep up a good dps.
