I posted this on the official forums, but I wanted to get the Tankspot community's opinion on it also:
For anyone interested, there was a discussion over on the Elitist Jerks forum about Holy Paladins and the aura they should be using. This point came up:
Q u o t e:Does anyone else like this idea as much as I do?
...swap the effects for Improved Concentration and Improved Devotion Aura--that would make the most sense to free up some of the "wasted" holy/prot points. If Improved Concentration Aura gave 6% healing, Holy paladins would love to use it. Conversely, if Improved Devotion Aura gave reduced Silence/Interrupt effect, it would be a boon to the many tankadins who have trouble on Silencing fights.
Having played a Prot Paladin for years, I always hated the fact that silence nerfed our threat output (especially if it happened early in a fight). By switching the effects of Improved Devo Aura and Improved Conc Aura, each tree would have a "signature" aura that they actually want to run with.
I understand that Prot Paladins love Improved Devo like it is now. What tank wouldn't like a built in "6% healing boost"? But what about Holy? Pushback is not really much of an issue right now, and the silence duration reduction from Improved Conc Aura is situational at best. So much so, that most Holy Paladins don't spec into it. That should be the first red flag for Blizzard (If a talent is not being used, there is probably a reason).
Now I'm sure I'm gonna get some flames (who doesn't on the official forums?), but I'm just curious.....Am I alone in thinking that this would be a good change?
