Paladin Beta Changes

Via MMO-Champion:

Paladin (Skills List / Talent Calc. (9014))
Skills - Holy
Divine Plea changed to : You gain 25% of your total mana over 15 sec (Old - 10 sec), but the amount healed by your spells is reduced by 100%. (Old - 50%)

Talents - Holy
Judgements of the Pure now lasts 1 minute. (Up from 30 seconds)
Infusion of the Light now reduces the cast time of your next Holy Light spell by 0.5/1sec. (Down from 1.25/2.5 sec)

Glyph of Flash of Light - Your Flash of Light heals for 50% less initially, but also heals for 140% (down from 200%) of its inital effect over 15 sec.
Glyph of the Wise - Reduces the mana cost of your Seal of Wisdom spell by 50%.

I'm not sure these were the changes most healadins were expecting. Without seeing all of the raid fights, it's hard to say whether Divine Plea will be useful. In the current game setting, it would not be. If I'm in a situation where I need mana, it's because I've been healing my brains out and need to continue to do just that. This takes the 5SR from Priests/Druids and puts it at a whole new level. Sad.

Instant Lights are gone. I'm not really surprised. They've basically just put the T5 bonus back into the game, but on a limited basis.

Just a couple of quick additions:

1) Sacred Shield now has a coefficient. It is 75% of Spell Damage on each proc (though not affected by Sheath of Light, a bug perhaps?).

2) Judgement of Wisdom now has a raid-wide internal cooldown of 4 seconds. This means it can only proc once every 4 seconds for any member of the raid, rather than once every 4 seconds for each individual. Hopefully this is a bug.

(sorry, needed to correct my previous comment)
