Latest Paladin WotLK Beta Changes.

These changes keep taking place daily and these are the latest notes as of today. At some point you get overloaded with WotLK Beta changes even though its exciting to see the direction the Devs are making to the class as a whole. So far its exciting many the changes the class is getting. Cross fingers many these changes make it officially live into WotLK when its all said and done or we sure will all be disappointed. I’m already getting tired of reading WotLK stuff, with brain overload. But if it matters to you this is what’s new. Only thing worst that reading Beta Notes is not being in it.

  • * All Seals have been reduced to 1 rank and now cost 14% of base mana. The duration has been increased to 2 minutes and are no longer consumed when a Judgement spell is cast. <>The effects can be triggered from all weapon based special abilities.<>Am I misreading this? The implication is that Crusader Strike, Divine Storm and Hammer of Righteousness can all proc Seal effects. I <>really<> don’t see that staying in (apart from with HoR perhaps, that has some interesting synergy potential with SoV), the burst damage potential would be insane.

  • Welcome back to the action bar Divine Protection. The NEW on-use Shield wall on a 5 minute cooldown that lasts 12 seconds. Albeit, it only reduces the damage by 50%, but it’s only on 5 minutes cooldown.
