With the direct nerf to Eternal Flame healing, removing mastery absorbs from EF and Ex Sentance, It's going to hit Holy Paladin hard, Especially in pvp.
We are already hands down the weakest arena healer due to lack of mobility and how easily we are cc'd, and now direct healing nerfs.
It's not that we can't CC, it's that we are too reliant on being in close range to be effective with them which is easily countered.
Druid stealths in catform, stun, into clone x 3. animal form on repents or fears. Cant escape.
Priest Guise into fear into DM, avoidable with speed of light, but still, they usally get it off easily. (esp with speed buffs of their own)
Holy will guise, into chastise, into dm into fear into dm again which is even worse.
Hpal gets Rebirth from symbio. (completely useless in pvp) What does priest get? Cyclone. Freakin Cyclone. Dont get me started on all their other tricks and pvp advantages.
SO now that we all agree holy paladin is the weakest pvp healer, why nerf them? They say Eternal flame is being used by the vast majority of Holy pallies, but instead of buffing the other talents, they simply nerf Eflame. Ive been playing Hpally since beginning of wrath and have been trying to progressivly get better at it as times goes by. I suppose I could reroll a druid or priest but I really dont want to/nor do I think it's fair to start at square 1 again.
