Build [8970] Paladin Changes.

Build 8970 has just been deployed on the Beta Realm. Apparently 8962 left a number of significant bugs in the DK starter area (such that you couldn't complete the quest to exit the area) and that warranted a quick pre-weekend patch. Thus far the number of Paladin changes are few and far between:

Paladin Changes
* Shield of Righteousness's damage coeff reduced to 100% of Block Value (down from 240%) - [This was actually a hotfix performed today but I thought it was worth sticking in there]

* Beacon of Light now lasts 1 minute. [MMO-Champion lists this as a change, but I've no idea what's going on here; as far as I knew it already lasted 1min]
* Beacon of Light no longer does double the healing when you heal the Beacon directly. [Bugfix or not, this is a pretty significant change]

* Fanaticism critical strike chance of all Judgements capable of a critical hit reduced to 4/8/12/16/20% (Down from 5/10/15/20/25%). [Strange... perhaps to keep Art of War in check?]
* Two-Handed Weapon Specialization now increases your damage with 2H weapons by 1/2/3%. (Down from 2/4/6%) [Very strange this one. It is now a significantly worse talent than Crusade, which is in Tier 4 rather than Tier 5, and also worse than the Warrior equivalent which remains 2/4/6%]

source(lots there for Druids BTW)

It strikes me that this is an internal build snapshot where some eager beaver was playing around with Paladin talents rather than making a concerted pass at them. Anyway, as there's not much in this build I'll instead link the colour-schemes for the 10-man and 25-man versions of Tier 7, sourced from MMO-C:

Hideous, in a trollish sort of way, aren't they.

Yikes! I hope those sets aren't the real thing! If so, I would be looking for the 'Display Armor' check box so I could turn it all off! Just a cloak and underwear would be a better alternative to..... that!
