    Sorry bro, in this you're being a silly goose. Greater wisdom him then regular might yourself. You are glyphed for it right? If it's such a huge issue, greater kings both of you. Kings is awesome, no one hates it.

    Or, you know, he could have used his own blessings to also bless the party. I don't think that's too much to have asked for. Point being, he's a healer who wasn't using beneficial spells OR REZZING.

    Right, but him being a miserable healer doesn't mean you have to stick him with might. For the same amount of reagents and a negligible amount of mana you could have given him an actual benefical buff, like Kings or Wis, while still having your might.

    Gotta comment on @samphis here as I know him RL and play w/him. He's a DPS Pally, pure retadin. He's running 3.4-4k in 4pc t9 in heroics w/me. Meanwhile I'm running 1.8-2.2k in 1pc naxx the rest crafted and random. He may not well know the ways of the healadin and is focusing on what he knows and and assuming that the guy flagged healer knows what to do as well. We haven't wiped yet so it hasn't been that bad and sometimes he makes me laugh on TS.

    you can right click the name and ignore that way.

    If typing it in it's something like "sillygoose-realmname" where "sillygoose" is the playername, a dash, then the realm they're from.

    I'm not dissing his ability to play ret, or commenting on his knowledge of holy. He knows enough to tell the healer that Greater Blessing of Might isn't going to help him. So why cast it?

    I cast it because I wanted it on myself. I also cast Kings on the rest of the party. I don't see why I should have to manage another Paladins blessings and dance around his lack of doing anything useful.

    We could have had Kings/Might or Kings/Wisdom on everyone in the party. Instead we had someone who queued as a healer who acted like anything but. Hell, I even had to do a large portion of the healing.

    Yes, I realize that I could have given him a useful blessing. But really, I just came in here to vent. You know, since it's the Hate thread.

    I've been using the Kings one because I do a lot of Battlegrounds and like to conserve mana more than I like to conserve reagents.

    There really aren't a lot of good options for Paladin minor glyphs, but since a good 60% of the enemies in this expansion are undead, Glyph of Sense Undead is worth taking up a spot on there.

    Heck, 1% more damage seems like something that should cost a talent point, not a minor glyph slot.

    As much effort as people put into gemming, enchanting, and spreadsheeting to eek out extra damage, this seems like a no-brainer.

    It's not really "grinding" Wintergrasp. You can get 40 shards from quests if your side wins (once).

    You have to get down the ret tree, and there's really nothing else to take. Assuming your raid has a ret paladin (admittedly ours does not but usually you do), you only put one point in heart of the crusader, and then fill out faster judgements and improved might. Then you are in jolly old critland.

    You could change out faster judgements with heart of the crusader, because they're not important at all, but the improved might is just too useful to pass up.

    Raid buffing. Holy pallies can do Imp Might and Imp Wis that way, if they go for the extra crit in Ret.

    See there's a fundamental disconnect here, my standard healing build is Holy/Prot for the raid damage reduction. Admittedly I'm debating going back to a Holy/Ret build but both are viable.

    I would boggle at the concept, but then I'm in a guild with no priest mains of any spec.

    But that's less of a "as a holy pally you should take it" and more of a "if you don't have ret pallies you should take it." Since having no holy pallies seems even more plausible than having no ret. Everybody wants to smack shit.

    and it's also really useful for 10s and heroics. There are plenty of times where I've had a pally tank, but no ret paladin, and we're able to might and wis and kings the whole raid (or five man).

    It just makes everything better if you have a holy paladin who can imp wisdom and imp might.

    On top of that, if you have ret paladins wouldn't they also take heart of the crusader?

    Either way I'm doubling up on a ret buff.

    edit: and as holy I can drop it from much farther away than a ret pally would, which i often do immediately upon pull so it's up there for the tanks a good 5 seconds before the melee reaches the mob. I also put it on dudes ranged are hitting. And it lasts 10 seconds longer than a ret pallies thanks to T9 2pc.
