wings 2 min sa all the way
There are much better glyphs for pvp than AW one.
Besides I dont think anything tops HA+AW burst in pvp. If necessary they can be used sepereatly every minute with trinket. For me HA wins.
Sanctified Wrath, I just love this talent as retri. I think the randomness of Divine Purpose is more of a Protection thing because it works well with Unbreakable spirit for even shorter divine protection cooldown but Sanctified wrath is just part of my dps now, I can't do without it, when I blow my cds I wanna feel like I throw a hammer of wrath every other ability.
Furthermore, HA for Prot is an amazing defensive cooldown, with some extra offense laced in. I'm sure GIDfly will chime in about the benefits of SW for Prot too, if you ask nicely. While I don't use SW personally as Prot, I would definitely use it long before I used DivPurp.

This new buff to Sword of Light is making Holy Avenger a solid contender to Sanctified Wrath now, in my opinion... Will have to see what the simulations look like between the two. But I did vote for Sanctified Wrath before the change :P

Exorcising Undead in the name of the Silver Hand!
Yes sometimes rng is a bitch, but it always is regardless of what you happen to choose to pick up. The average buff uptime is quite substantial between the two.
Holy Avenger all the way, especially with wings down to 2 mins.
Reason for is im doing alot of PvP, and i simply love the burst this is giving me, not many can survive it when im pwning ppl with my sis feral drood
In PvE, its not bad either, and always gives me the lead on DPS meter, though dropping alot after that, i hope the new set bonus and the SoL buff will close the gap between me and other melee's.
the only problem with HA and SW is that you will probably be CC'ed soon as you pop wings and HA, making you wait another 3 mins (2 mins in 5.2) before you can put out any decent pressure. I do use HA in arenas (2's) because of the burst required. in BG's i use DP, because although it RNG, its passive and most of the time i get 2-4 back-to-back procs and can use those procs to heal and dps pretty decently
I find HA to be more fun for those burst moments and watching 1000k's of hp melt away in seconds, i haven't tried the others not counting my time with DP in cata, SW sounds boring to me even if many consider it the best i'll never go it.
Haven't decided quite yet, but right now I am leaning toward SW. HA is still nice, but maybe after I have more time to test both out a little more, I can decide for sure.
All-around I think Holy Avenger is the winner. Sanc Wrath requires too much uninterrupted uptime on the same or nearby target, which is hardly a luxury in this tier, and Divine Purpose is just weak. Plus for those situations where you have to do a LOT of AoE damage, LIKERIGHTNOW, you just can't beat HA.
OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."
And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"
-First of all they dont happen too often.
-Second you cant ensure uptime for consecutive TVs, your trinket/freedom/stun might be on cooldown and there is enemy cooldowns too.
-Third you cant rely on DP for survival.
-Fourth even if you get the uptime and procs the damage is still nowhere near the amount of HA+SW.
I too did random BGs with DP but after 5.2 i dont see any reason to go back to DP ever again.
TV does far less damage than harsh word at low lvl. alot less on top of melee range restriction =(
