I copied a pre-made level 80 Paladin to the Beta PVP server. I wanted to get a feel for the “completely redesigned class”.
In the live environment, at level 70, in PVE healing gear Tatia is seeing 330 dps. (Recount of dailies on the Isle)
In the Wrath Beta, at level 80, in PVP healing gear Tatia is seeing 400 dps. (Recount of mob-kills in Howling Fjord)
I desperately hope I’m doing it wrong.
Pre-fight: Retribution Aura, Blessing of Kings(maybe I should use might), Seal of Righteousness (2 min duration)
Fight: Judgement of Wisdom (as good a choice as any)**, Holy Shock. Re-apply each as cooldowns are up.
I didn’t really find any other cool buttons to push. I was fighting single mobs.. so I didn’t use consecration (seemed wasteful of mana). I suppose I could slam them with my shield.. but that seems more of a tanking thing. Re-application of the Judgement of XXX caused ~600-1k damage. Holy Shock was hitting for 1.5k-3k.
There was still a lot of standing around, waiting for cooldowns.
I ended the fight at 98% health/mana.. but I’m also fighting level 71/72 mobs.
I mean, I don’t expect to be a machine of mad dps.. but 400 is ALOT lower than I expected.
**Judgement choice: Judgement of Wisdom returns mana. Judgement of Light returns health. Judgement of Justice prevents runners. None of them seem to add to my DPS. So for this testing, one is as good a choice as any.
