Wouldn't a more balanced way of dealing with holy radiance be to bring it in line with the other AoE heals you mentioned? Give it a target cap like WG, Chain Heal, and PoH/PoM, with similar mana costs. That and/or give it a short cooldown like WG.(Also Chase, while I agree about people taking more damage is bad in raids, I don't think you can attribute WoL results to more raiders standing in a fire. There are 3 other healing classes, one would expect the worlds top healers from those classes to be competitive with Paladins in that exact same scenario - I wouldn't imagine every single high-damage taking raid was filled with 5 holy paladins.)

I'm not defending the holy paladin parses on WOL by saying that all of the top parsing holy paladins had their raids stand in fire, but that when raid damage is the highest, holy paladins are tops. We're very well-suited for Dragon Soul (as I mentioned), and so the other healers don't get the opportunity to shine. I've seen a disc priest do some amazing tank healing, but we'll never see that in a DS parse.

Eh, I knew I should have kept my mouth shut about that part... what I really wanted to know chase is what you think about making holy radiance more like a chain heal/PoH/WG type of spell. (Or is Light of Dawn supposed to be paladins' PoH?)

To quote myself:"A Chain Heal-style priority system that directs the healing to the most wounded targets within HR's range would help. Holy Radiance could also be changed to only affect one group, like Prayer of Healing."I think that a target cap is the right solution for the spell.

I guess great minds think alike? I swear I read the whole article, I guess that's what I get for wow insidering on a massive hangover :P.
