After Blizzard implemented various changes to the Holy Power mechanics of the paladins during the Alpha of WoW: Shadowlands in July 2020, the developers are now rowing back again. The team said the changes were not worthwhile enough.
It is part of every beta phase of World of Warcraft that Blizzard introduces new mechanics or changes existing systems, only to then undo these changes. WoW: Shadowlands is no exception: How Wowhead reported the developers the adjustments to the Holy Power for paladins from early July 2020 withdrawn from the alpha phase with the latest beta build.
The team writes about it in one official bluepostwhat that means in detail:
- The changes to the Paladins' Holy Power no longer apply because the developers feel that after the adjustments, the creation of Holy Power did not have as positive an effect as hoped: Judgment feels better when it generates Holy Power Blizzard.
- The total amount of Holy Power generated should be higher than before with the latest beta build.
- Some degree of harm mitigation changes from shield of the righteous to consecration. This will improve mitigation when Shield of the Righteous is inactive and will make damage taken more evenly.
- The developers have replaced the spell Radiant Light with Bastion of Glory. This mechanic works similarly to Shield of the Righteous in Warlords of Draenor, with Shield of the Righteous granting a stackable self-healing buff on Word of Glory. This should enable players to better use Word of Glory.
