Judgment Durations Increased to 20 Seconds

The latest round of player-generated screenshots and Thottbot information has revealed that our duration on judgments that place debuffs has increased from 10 seconds to 20 seconds - presumably to make up for the loss of the Lasting Judgment talent.

Seal of Light


Seal of Wisdom

Seal of the Crusader


The forums are down for maintenance presently, so I've been unable to locate any threads that had links to screenshots to back this up. Above, I've given the thottbot links.

Awesome. I can't describe how annoying it is to lose a Judgement because you missed twice in a row, or the mob dodged then you threw off a heal etc etc.

Personally, I think 15 seconds would have been enough...but thats just me. Enough to encourage the Crusader striking paladins, but not enough that rejudging constantly isnt a pain.

Other than that...the increase was a good idea, glad they did it.

Nice they kind of brought back the old judgment durations. I remember they used to be 30 secs before 1.9.

Yes, this will help quite a bit in PvP. Now they should increase the duration on the SoV debuffs... to increase PvP viability. Even perhaps to 120 over 15s. Sure, it decreases DPS slightly, but it would help in PvP. I anticipate using SoV quite often in the BGs.

I'm not sure why, but 600 damage over 12 seconds + a 600 damage judgement every 8 seconds (both with +spellpower applied) seems lovely. Especially with two Paladins doing this, you're almost guaranteed to keep that debuff up there.

Glorious.
