    Yeah it's confirmed. I almost convinced myself to tank with my paladin instead of my warrior as well. I guess Blizz made up my mind for me.

    I just noticed it while i was in a heroic.. my health was normally not that low, so i checked it out, and bam.. no more than 2 procs at once, perhaps 3 if you are lucky. even if you have 15-20 mobs

    I quess Challenge mode is now totally gone for prot paladins

    Ya...I was gonna start them...now I'll just forget it.

    There is no reason to bring a Protection Paladin for Challange Modes if you can bring a DK.

    I mean, what do we have? Crap self heals, no AoE stun (unless we glyph Blinding Light but it still has a longer CD than all the other tanks), bad mobility, horrible damage.

    Noticed this also. It was fun being able to be at 100% HP while facepulling OS25 3 drakes with all trash up. The healing from seal of insight was crazy, now it seems it only heals from hitting your main target.

    Both holy and ret have been nerfed in PvP in the past week, and now this. This change makes me sadface the most though.

    Maybe it's time to lay down the shields and weapons and just throw some beer around.

    Or grab a large axe and turn to the dark side.

    Seriously though, this nerf is a bit too much, even though the original way it worked was too strong. I think a nerf of 50% or so of the healing of SoI from HotR would have been nice.

    Could have just cap the number of mobs it can proc off, like 4 or so. But no.

    Prot paladin HPS was off the charts with the glyph. Needed change, really.

    Yeah but there were much better ways of dealing with it. Capping off the targets HoTr can hit would be my choice. This change just really neuters us in CM's amongst other things.

    "You are supposed to use Seal of Insight as a Prot Paladin... but we are now going to make it virtually worthless in an AoE situation."

    Guess I am glad I main-spec Ret instead of Prot now...
    Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
    It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
    Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
    These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.

    Soon no reasons to play palas, why do they enjoy nerfing us so much?
    Art is a long and tedious journy, and still so worth it.

    Battle Healer glyph wasn't affected by this... only healing provided by Seal of Insight. On single target encounters it's basically the same.

    I don't really know what to think about this... seems lame, but not many encounters have adds (except for 4th boss in HoF), however tanking Challenge Modes is another thing...
