As promised Tuesday, here are the changes for paladins in CataBuild 12644. There aren’t many changes made for the paladin with this release so I will simply quote the notes and say that the only major tree change is with Improved Lay on Hands.
- Speed of Light now increases your movement speed for 4 sec. Down from 10 sec.
- Improved Lay on Hands is gone.
- Last Word (Tier 2) *New* – Gives your Word of Glory a 30/60% increased critical chance when used on targets with 35% or less health.
- Sanctified Light is now named Arbiter of the Light – Increases the critical effect chance of your Judgement, Holy Light and Templar’s Verdict by 6/12%.
Since the 12644 there have been some minor changes made in 12694 that only effects Consecration for Holy, so no healing adjustments from the notes (I am not in Beta mind you), but there was a small adjustment made to the Retribution tree that effects our healing support:
- Rule of Law is now a 2 rank talents. Down from 3.
This change brings the critical effect down 5% from 15% to 10% with 2 ranks.
As a side note, as of 12694, Reforging is available to swap the stats in your gear. This was mentioned at Blizzcon but word until now has been silent.
Until we meet again good friends, I bid you ado.
