Because it won't change Ret from being trained all game. They effectively eliminate you from the fight by rendering you absolutely useless and not being able to fulfill your job as a DPS. I would love for them to rework Divine Shield into something weaker, but on a much shorter cooldown (similar to dispersion maybe?) so we can confidently push into the other team without having to rely for a 5 minute cooldown for reassurance that we won't just drop dead.
Nope.. I'm just saying that warrior already have this kind of "passive" ability with no CD what so ever..
- And all they lose is some rage, it doesn't even require them to equip a shield
And what happened to def stance? It received a significant nerf. Not to mention that if you've ever played a warrior, it reduces your rage generation by a substantial amount to sit in D stance, so. Generally for a kill you swap to Battle Stance while your target is in a shockwave.

It's called Seal of Insight and it just is horribly ineffective. Really, Seal of Insight should be altered to be our "defensive" Seal by making it passively reduce damage or provide a permanent regen effect outside of actually attacking. Considering the huge loss in actual damage by using the Seal, it wouldn't be a bad trade to make it do something that passively keeps us alive better. Perhaps reduced damage taken while unable to control your character?
Why is it so hard to add a passive ability for Retribution that goes like this:
<Insert Awesome name>: While a shield is equipped, all damage taken is reduced by 20%..
How come it's so hard?..
By equipping a shield, our damage done will reduced by A LOT!..
This could add some interesting gameplay to the Retribution Spec. and it's such a simple change.
It wouldn’t be hard.
It would be overpowered.
And before anyone cries about warriors, Defensive Stance was (rightly) nerfed.
I do, however, agree that something needs done about Divine Shield - for me, it's holding the class back. Alas, I doubt anything will be done because the developers consider it such a signature ability.
