So the Pally preview was today for all those that didn't know. Blizzard always leaves paladins to last since I think it is more than 30% of characters in WoW are paladins. So they have to get the QQ and short bus preped and warmed up. Getting ready to read the changes I almost expected something completely ridiculous, and I wasn't disappointed.
Guardian of Ancient Kings (level 85): Summons a temporary guardian that looks like a winged creature of light armed with a sword. The visual is similar to that of the Resurrection spell used by the paladin in Warcraft III. The guardian has a different effect depending on the talent spec of the paladin. For Holy paladins, the guardian heals the most wounded ally in the area. For Protection paladins, the guardian absorbs some incoming damage. For Retribution paladins, it damages an enemy, similar to the death knight Gargoyle or the Nibelung staff. 3-minute cooldown. 30-second duration.
Now think about all the previews we have read about. Done? Now read that again. Now does this sound as insane as I am thinking it does? Maybe it is my eternal hatred for paladins or maybe it's not. I would love to have a spell or ability that works differently depending on what spec I was at the time. This would be like army of the dead healing a target, or something less stupid as Whirlwind knocking down a target when spec'd prot. Now that sounds insane and completely Overpowered. Now go back and read the cooldown and how long it lasts, now it sounds even more ridiculous.
At least this guy is happy
