Huh.   I had just mentioned this on these forums last week, that it should go down to 45 from 60 baseline.   Good change

As someone who is looking at Paladin (mainly holy) as a new main in DF...something i would love to see is more melee abilities buffing your healing abilities. The Judgement talent that does what Vanquisher's hammer used to do but on a 30 sec cooldown just seems too much of a nerf for holy paladins...Something more on the lines of "shield of the righteous now costs 5 holy power, and makes your next WoG cast LoD for free at 20% Increased effectiveness". 

Couple of benefits for this change:

1). Would replace a huge spell we had in SL's that kept us quite competitive with other healers, especially in M+

2). Continue that "Melee" healer role and aesthetic that most people now come to know about holy paladins now

3). another spender for our holy power that brings us crucial buffs to situations where we want to pool our HP for moments where we need more healing output/throughput, Considering most Holy paladins rarely use SotR and just spam Light of Dawn or Word of Glory to use up their HP.

 

With some tuning and thought, this could become a very powerful ability. some may think 5 holy power is too much with this, but considering if there is no internal CD, using 5 holy power, then having to build back up to 3 holy power to use WoG to use the buff, it already keeps us toned down a bit, having us to rebuild our HP to use those abilities each time, but still giving us that much needed buff to our spells.

 

Just a thought about this, could be a great implement to the talents!!

      After the Frog Farm nerf, players in MoP Remix have found a new farming spot with Goats!
      In MoP Remix, many players are now farming Goats instead of Frogs. Although the new Goat farm isn’t as profitable, it's become the new go-to spot.

      How Does the New Goat Farm Work?
      To start farming goats, head to the location in Valley of the Four Winds shown below. Screenshot courtesy of NexerdGamer.

      The Goat farm is straightforward: fly around the designated area until you find packs of goats and kill them. There’s always at least one pack available at any time.
      For more details check out the following video by NexerdGamer.

      MoP Remix is the big focus on the retail side of things, as we get many new fixes, in addition to the major changes announced earlier today. We also get some developer notes on those big changes, as well as more class improvements in Cataclysm Classic.

      WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria
      Shirts and tabards can now be purchased from Larah Treebender at any Infinite Bazaar, Mei Steadypaw outside the Shrine of Two Moons and the Shrine of Seven Stars, and Hanchoon Yi at Paw’don Village, Honeydew Village, Shrine of Two Moons, and Shrine of Seven Stars. Fixed a bug preventing Timerunners with a legendary Infinite Cloak of Potential from accessing Ordon Sanctuary as intended. Fixed an issue with the spawning of Voress’thalik which prevented the completion of “Devastation Below”. Fixed an issue preventing players from learning Amber Pterrordax. Fixed a bug causing Gulp Frogs to unintentionally drop Lesser Charms of Good Fortune. Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level. Gear drop-rates have been improved from world rares, rare elites, and quests. This will help players who have had their item levels fall behind as leveling speed increases, especially at higher levels when cloak bonus experience is powered up. Developers’ notes: This will also increase player Bronze and appearance acquisition by increasing the number of items to place into the Unraveling Sands for additional Bronze. The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache. Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly. We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience. We’ve increased the number of prismatic gems dropped from bosses in normal and heroic scenarios and dungeons. Developers’ notes: The increased stamina offered by Legendary Prismatic gems boosts player survivability considerably. We have increased the Bronze granted from all qualities of Bronze Caches by 25%. Developers’ notes: These caches are available from a wide variety of sources, both solo and group. This includes the Minor Bronze Cache, Lesser Bronze Cache, Bronze Cache, and Greater Bronze Cache. Fixed an issue where Sha-Skin Vestment was marked as Cosmetic instead of Cloth armor. Cataclysm Classic
      Players may skip directly to the beginning of Vashj’ir using a portal in their respective cities. “Vashj’ir: Call of Duty” will remain available to players who skipped directly to “Sea Legs”. Hunter Ancient Hysteria from Hunter Core Hound pets has been renamed Primal Rage. The debuff it causes has been renamed from Insanity to Fatigued. Fixed a bug preventing pets from displaying in the Stable as intended. Mage When Combustion gains damage from Ignite, that Ignite damage will not get increased a second time from Fire Mage Mastery Flashburn. It was already increased once by Flashburn when first applied.

      Big changes arrive to the Remix limited time event, as Blizzard address some of the issues players have been having. We see improvements for: higher level enemy scaling, drop rates overall, LFR, dungeon and scenario XP and gem drops, and the earlier Bronze drop from caches.

      We’re making a number of changes to address issues players have been reporting with scaling and improve the overall Remix experience by improving the viability of all content for earning additional experience, bronze, and gear. The following updates have already been made to all realms via hotfix:

      Blizzard just published another short story from the War Within series about Anduin called "The Calling".
      (Source)
      Since leaving the realms of Death, Anduin Wrynn has only sought to keep his hands busy. Plagued by night terrors and grisly flashbacks, the young king finally finds the isolation he seeks in Stormsong Valley, milling flour for a local village. But while Anduin may be able to hide his identity, he cannot escape who he is or the stuff he is made from.
