1.11 PTR is UP - Pallies get ZIP

See the full notes here.

The pertinent bit (complete with my caustic comments):
Paladins
- Benediction: This talent will no longer incorrectly provide a double discount to Seal of Justice.
- Blessing of Light: It is no longer possible for a target to appear to have multiple ranks of Blessing of Light. These multiple auras had no beneficial effect, merely causing confusion. Problems with targeting the spell when the caster has Blessing of Light effect on them have also been fixed. Weren't they supposed to fix this in the last patch?
- Divine Favor: It is no longer possible to cast this immediately after a healing spell and "retroactively" make it a critical hit. Never knew you could do this. Don't have the latency to pull it off anyway. Won't matter now.
- Illumination: When several critical effect healing spells are cast very quickly, you will now receive the correct mana refund for each one.
- Judgement of Command: Now consumes a charge of the Zandalarian Hero Charm. In addition, when this spell is resisted it will no longer erroneously still do damage. Great - so not only can it be blocked/dodged/parried/sidestepped/point-laughed-at, it can now also be resisted.
- Judgement of Righteousness: Now consumes a charge of the Zandalarian Hero Charm.
- Seal of Command: Clarified tooltip.
- Vengeance: Seal of Command critical hits can now trigger this ability. I thought they were supposed to. In fact, I thought they were already.
- Vindication: This effect will no longer be absorbed by Grounding Totem.

On the bright side, it appears the PvP sets are getting buffed/upgraded.
Other cool things - ZG class-specific armor rewards are now much easier to get, requiring only the Primal Hakkari drop and the necessary rep level. If I'm reading the notes correctly, it also indicates that they've all been upgraded to epic quality.

You shoul check out the druid swiftmend talent. It's even more overpowered than innervate. Its makes your rejuv or regrowth an instant cast heal. Remember hots get 100% of the +damage bonus. Druids reporting 1.9k instant heals. THe cooldown on the spell is *15* seconds. Yeh holy shock what? Morelike holy SUCK harharhar.
