Blizzard Developer Chat on Twitter 4/16

Blizzard is chatty again

Q: Will healing hands be a paladin-centered tranquility, or something we have to run around to keep people in range of?
A: The idea is that it matters where the paladin is, so it won’t be raid-wide like Tranquility will be in Cataclysm. We will make sure the magnitude of the heal is sufficient that it’s a button the paladin wants to use. The cooldown and duration aren’t set in stone either.

I’m sure this will be a heal we’ll use but Blizzard worries me when they want the heal to be “sufficient”. I’m expecting a long cooldown (1min), a short duration (8-10sec) and low to semi-moderate heals.

Q: Now that paladin’s Holy Shock is baseline is there any plans to change the Art of War talent?
A: We like Art of War, so we don’t expect it will go away. We understand the concern that Holy Shock might compete with Art of War a little bit in terms of role (an instant damage spell) and that’s something we’re going to have to address.

I’m interested in seeing what they do here.

Q. What information/ideas can you share on PvP utility in the Retribution tree? Mandatory gap closer/interrupt question. Not having a cleanse will hurt. :\
A. Retribution paladins will be getting an interrupt.

I am curious to know if protection paladins can utilize this interrupt as well. Knowing Blizzard they will probably link the spell to Repentance which is too far for a tank to get.

    They better buff up HH to make it a button worth pressing!

    I really hope they fix it so that Ret is NOT a better healing tree than Holy. It should not even BE viable as a healing tree imo.
