When Ghostcrawler said he was nerfing Paladins to the ground, he was not joking. Once again paladins get another nerf in the retribution tree. This time it affected Avenging Wrath and Divine Shield. They will be mutually exclusive through Forbearance. (its live now)
While I am extremely getting disappointed with the nerfs, this change doesn’t really hurt the overall DPS/heals. You just have to be mindful in when to use Avenging Wrath or Divine Shield. Luckily this does not really affect my gameplay since I mostly use Divine Shield as an “oh crap” button while I use Avenging Wrath to help my DPS/healing.
But among the smoke and fire I see a small dimmer light, a hope, which will help the paladins in PVP:
might need other tools to be viable in PvP
I truly hope a type of intercept will be given and I have an idea. Blizzard should change Pursuit of Justice by removing the 15% increase movement and add a type of intercept. This is similar to the warrior’s intercept.
This will be the long waited spell which will close the gap with the kiting issue.
