For a single target fight, the 4-set seems quite awful... Do you think this was a device to make paladins especially helpful for fights with adds? I suppose there have been quite a few multi-target fights in tier-15, at least. I think six? (assuming you're in the nest group on Ji-Kun) But I find this a little detrimental compared to the tier-15's 4-set bonus. I don't really know what to make of the dev's intentions with this. They obviously chose DS for a reason.
Thank you for clearing that up for me. I'm surprised that they're focusing more on animations than class performance, which is what raiders are looking for - in which the tier pieces are ONLY obtained by raiders. I love the animation too, but it doesn't make sense swirling around if you're facing one target... But if they're oh-so fond of the animation, the least they can do is buff the damage to match a Templar's verdict - or make a damn glyph that makes Templar's verdict look like divine storm or something. This is just like "chance on hit that shaman casts a free earthquake!"... wtf, mate? Anyway, enough ranting since there's no point, especially considering you most likely agree with me.
I just never understand the desire/demand for spell effects over substance. I mean...if you want flash/sparkle/glitter/shine, go play Hello Kitty Island Adventure or something. As you said, most raiders or serious players give 2 shits about spell effects (or even dislike them), but Blizz panders to the sub's that pay the bills, which sadly seem to love the shiniest of shinies.
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?"
What I don't understand, is if this is supposed to help our cleave why is it something we get so late in the raid? I mean 4pc are usually rather late in raids and cleave fights have been rather early lately. Idk I could be wrong with lfr and such but I find it silly.
