    why fear a holy pally in arena?

    i cant think of anything, can you?

    why is it that every other healing class must be los because of their offensive threats, but yet the plate paladin remains to be los chump? any thoughts.

    I dont fear holy paladins, but that might be because i am a shaman and i can interupt holy paladins. (where i cant do that to druids or priests, works for shamans but then again he can interupt me aswell then)

    ooo ive got a good holy talent.

    Sheild Cower: the paladin goes into a defensive sheild cower and waits out the end of the a$$ kicking.

    should put it deep holy tree tho, you know, so prot and rets dont go for it ^^^^^

    the way you have worded your sentence is weird, are you saying pallies are not feared coz they can't mana burn/shock/throw out alot of cc's like prot-healers can?? yes i would agree, but one thing i do fear about pallies , is almost running oom on my 15k mana pool while their 17-18k mana pool barely moves an inch.

    You can easily OOM a Holy by not staying in Melee range and Purging Divine Plea.

    Beacon of Light now summons a pillar so we can run around it at Ring of Valor when all LoS is gone and there is a frost mage and elemental shamman targeting you.

    sadly this is probably true. Its the problem with the paladin and shaman classes, shaman have almost all offensive utility & paladins have almost all defensive utility both of which = crap atm. Kinda wish they would give us both a stacking weak dispelable MS effect like frost mages, maybe then healers healers would feel some pressure or spend a GCD dispelling instead of just spam healing & laughing at us.
    The way balancing for WOW PVP works is allot like American politics.
    1: Be lazy & ignore problems till the yelling is so loud your cant concentrate.
    2: Refuse to do the things you have Said need to be done, then make up reasons why they cannot be done.
    3: Lay the blame for problems on someone else even when it's your fault because you did all of the above.

    Mana burn? When did I get that talent? I better look it up.

    Secondly, prot healing sucks balls, NO HOLY SHOCK, no haste, long casts interrupted constantly, no beacon......etc

    No wonder there is only one prot healer on the top 45 teams worldwide. Yet some how it a problem worth nerfing when it sucks to begin with and very few actually use it top end.

    Thus why i don't fear a holy paladin.

    I don't fear prot-holy either, i just find it really really annoying.
