Divine Plea sucks a lot less, Warriors and Druids get a ranged taunt, and shamans had many nerfs undone. And don't let the 100 yard range on Glyph of Holy Light trick you - it's a tooltip bug.

Prot pallies can also cheer (again), since the great crab has delivered mitigation news:

"Shield of the Templar now also reduces all damage taken by 1/2/3%."

PWNSAUCE.

One of the best new shaman spells is Hex. We can now turn a humanoid or beast into a frog for 30 seconds.

It's payback time for those trolls that frogged me in the Sunken Temple!

I can see it now.

"Holyssa: Ok, sheep the one marked moon."

Shaman: ....

Holyssa: Uh...sheep the moon?

Shaman: ....

Holyssa: FFS, someone sheep the fu--*notices there's no mage*...sigh. Ok, frog the moon.

Shaman: Kek."

The divine plea change is nice, but I'm still on the fence about which character I'm going to level up first. Maybe I need to take more time off of work and level them both.

Wait... no. I wanna preserve what little of my sanity I have left.

The ranged taunt change to warriors and druids are nice as well, especially considering the changes to Blessing (now hand) of Salvation. Makes the threat mitigation slightly better, IMO.

Blizzard is teasing you, just like how God teased Moses in the desert! Why? Lookie:

Righteous Defense -- cooldown lowered to 8 sec. It had been 10 sec recently and is 15 sec on live.

Infusion of Light -- now affects Flash of Light or Holy Light. Flash of Light is reduced to 0 cast time with 2 ranks, meaning that if you're running around and get a Holy Shock crit, you can also Flash without stopping.

Judgements of the Pure -- haste benefit now up to 15% with 5 ranks (was 10%).

Enlightened Judgements -- range benefit is now 30 yards with 2 ranks (was 20). This means you can judge or heal from the same range without having to run around so much.

Bacon of Light -- no change here, but I can never miss an opportunity to call it Bacon.

Shorter taunt cooldown? Me like. Bacon of Light? *nom-nom-nom-nom-nom-nom-nom~*

Yeah, I just saw that on the pally boards. I'm glad to see that prot got their taunt change, and that ret didn't get any nerfs.

I'm still confused by where they're going with those holy changes, though. The range increase to 30 yards for EJ makes it much less of a PITA, but our heals are 40 yard range, not 30. Even Elemental shaman, who are currently restricted to 30 yards, will be able to stand farther back than that with their new talents. The much bigger issue, and what will cause it to not be used much in PVE is the bleeding mana issues. If we can't keep up with our mana, 15% haste is useless. I had to REDUCE a lot of my haste when we got to BT for that reason.

The best route for Holy in WotLK, like TBC, is not haste, but to become a crit monster as illustrated by the IoL change. But, Blizzard seems to be discouraging that pretty much across the board, so I really don't get it. Someone help me understand! *bangs head on desk*
