Yeah i know Reith, just putting out there some wishful thinking; "channeling that positive energy hopping to hit GC"
I said nothing of 10+ targets. 4-5 is what I'd want myself, a bit more than you'd do by target switching today anyway (Wind Lord).
As for damage tuning ... of course it's OP with it's current damage. That would have to be adjusted. That however would weaken single target, so ... wicked circle - I leave damage tuning to other people. Probably best not to mess with Seals at all and do the AoE damage over buffs to Divine Storm, but that just seems so ... bland. One could just buff SoR more, but again, bland as hell. Whatever, I don't expect much from GC anymore.
Might be the best to leave it alone, yes, and search for buffs elsewhere. I'd be happy if there was an increase, in whatever way, to lackluster Ret-AoE. Just couldn't come up with a better idea ad hoc.I think Censure is fine as is, which is why all these changes regarding it may not happen, the risk of making Censure worse prob too big.
The problem with increasing the amount of targets that get hit with censure will only throw off Blizzard's whole, "Make every Paladin Seal viable" crusade. They WANT us to use Righteousness in AoE situations with the 4-5+ mobs like you are describing.
I think different seal idea currently is dumb as it is. Should just make SoT ret only and have seal choices for different effects such as phys dmg reduction / faster movement / resists/spelldmg reduction.
And yes, main pve concern is: ret AoE capability and tbh w-o some sort of a passive buffer most/all other classes have we will never be in the good spot for obvious reasons being a melee role/class.
Put in a Int 2h mace? Awesome, lets not forget that doesn't fufill our 2h quota heh.

Anyone else is having a (terrible) feeling that they have finished adjusting our AoE damage too through the sol change?
Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.
Seals should be off the GCD, IMO.
I think that was more in regards to the change in Cata where it only affected auto attacks, rather than all physical damage as it was previously, and they then reversed it for MoP. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Well they just said they didn't like the old savage roar because it was a mechanic that punished the people for mismanaging it/not managing it perfectly instead of rewarding them for using the ability well, which is basically always what inq has been. That is, inq is the former like the old savage roar was.
