Never considered this to be a bug. Can't remember the last time when this was an issue, either. Not sure what to think of it.

Inq is the reason I stopped playing Paladin full time. It would be a far less lame and cheesy mechanic if there was a refresh like a rogue's S&D. But there's not. It's a quick fix to make Ret more "complicated." It's shallow and has no place with the Paladin class.

Finally made an account...
Now that inquisition gives us 10% crit, I'd be angry if Blizzard took it away. Even if they did bake the damage into our spec, you KNOW they wouldn't compensate for that 10% crit. We have pretty much the highest crit rating of any class with it up (and raid buffed with extra %5). My fury warrior stacks crit, he GEMS crit, and he's still only about 18% (without 5%). My pally avoids crit and still has about 22% (with Inq, without 5%). GLOWING HANDS.
They should increase the duration back to 36 seconds like it was in Cata. It didn't feel nearly as annoying at 36 seconds. Or at least add an intresting mechanic to add time. Maybe Templar's Verdict increases it by 2 seconds, max of 6 seconds, kinda like feral with rip.
Some kind of medium range AoE would be amazing. Ret Paladins already complain about our Burst AoE damage, considering we have to build three holy power, use inquisition, build three more, than finally use a Divine Storm. That's 7 full globals before you can use our signature AoE. My priest Alt just lolmind sears the tank and does insane damage. Inquisition doing an AoE between the damage of HoR and DS would help fix that slugish AoE ramp up while also making refreshes feel less taxing. Hell, take 5% damage from something else, don't care.
I've always been against Inq mainly due to the fact that it's a lost global every 30 seconds. I know it is intended to give us a ramp up time, but how about instead we get it as a CD similar to a DK's Outbreak where we get a 3 stack of personal(full buff) of Inq on use. However we can also choose to ramp up by gaining a stack per special attack(CS,J,Exo) making the CD(10sec) refresh on the attack. The CD allows us the be more sustainable through long periods where we can't attack, ie phase transitions or in pvp, or choose the ramp up of 3 damaging globals without needing the wasted 4th currently.
