Even more updates!

Remember the list of blessings who were going to be given a 15-minute version? Eyonix says:
Update: Blessing of Light will now have a fifteen minute raid buff version available.
So there goes the speculations based on that guy who said Blessing of Light would be removed in to the trash... there's a reason I don't post rumors!

that's very surprising to hear, I wonder what this means for the potential for buffing FoL. I'd prefer a higher base FoL to be honest, but if we get both then we'll be laughing!

Want to bet they were going to ditch BoL and give us a better FoL but they took it out after the pve paladins whined about it?

Yep, I just saw it. Came home and I see this lol. The changes don't look all that cool. I'll wait to see the actual numbers of the new righteousness/command before commenting if its good or bad. They made it so they proc more but do less damage and their judgements do *significantly* more damage. The actual damage of these judgments and cooldown of the new judgement will probably determine our new dps. My guess is that both judgements do 500 or so damage and judgment has a 6 second cooldown.

These patch notes were confirmed by Caydiem, but she notes that they're for the PTR and subject to change.

Downloading the PTR patch now.

I'm very intrigued over these Paladin changes. Longer, raid oriented blessings look very nice, and I can see potential for good overall damage boost as well as options for controlled burst damage.

On the healing end: Holy Shock instant cast heal on friendly targets (as well as nuke on enemies)- very cool. Makes the end of the Holy Tree fit with the beginning, improving healing.

Tanking end: Pallies should see dramatic improvement in their aggro-holding and maybe even snap aggro abilities. Righteous Fury in conjunction with Seal/Judgement of Righteousness means sustained aggro building with the option of a burst through Judgement.

Damage dealing: I've yet to see the numbers on these supposedly increased abilities (Judgement of Righteous/Command) but there seems to be good potential here.

Misc: There's actually a reason to use Seal of Justice (and spec in its improved talent) now that it's not crapped on by diminishing returns. Silent Fang + SoJ will now make life much more difficult for casters.

Gratz to Warlocks on FINALLY getting your soul shard bags.

Hunters no longer subject to daze when in AotP/C - if I'm reading this right, nice.

Shamans - good to see Blizzard choosing the "buff Horde" route in relation to the Blessing of Salvation issue (as opposed to the "nerf Alliance" route) with your new Tranquil Air totem.

Warriors - bummer about your Enraged damage bonus. I have a Warrior I'm working on now also. So much give/take with this class. :/

Darkmoon cards 2-8 droprate reduced, ace increased - good news for me. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up an ace and complete my set.
