Quickie – lay on hands

November 4, 2009 at 5:29 am (Uncategorized)

Just a short top-of-the-mind post on the proposed changes to lay on hands.  Basically, LoH now gives the target forbearance – and consequently can’t be used when you have forbearance.

Be aware, I cannot see this going live the way its proposed – but then I said that about beacon too.

Its only slightly less ridiculous than the previous idea (can’t cast it on yourself).  Ironically it won’t effect holy pallies really at all because they already use beacon to “double” LoH.  Its just a straight needless nerf to a very situational ability to prot pallies.  However, it will make progression tanking harder with prot pally tanks because your healers shouldn’t be able to lock tank cooldowns out.  Prot pallies being able to buy a few seconds is a massive bonus in some progression fights (Anub especially).

I simply don’t understand why this ability is a problem.  I understand (but don’t agree with) the constant stream of nerfs for arena but nerfing prot pallies because of low level pvp?  Are you fucking serious??
