Fellow guildmember Chelsea started a thread on discussing Hammer of Wrath.
I just bought it, and apparently it's classified as a Holy spell. And frankly, that sucks. If only it was Retribution -- Benediction would become so much more useful.
Blessing of Freedom and Sanctuary don't blink anymore. Their animations are fixed. No reports that other blessings have graphics yet.
The test client seems to crash on me quite frequently, have yet to check out that much content yet.
Edit: Specced to 9/31/11 and tried it out. Hated it. I hate Seal of Command.
Edit 2: Funny screenshot of Hammer of Wrath in action. From this thread.
