Been looking at various builds for Holy, and it keeps coming down to having 1 point to spend on "quality of life" talents in the Holy tree.

The other thing I notice is there is nothing in Holy or Prot trees that a raiding paladin would forgo spending 10 points in Ret to take.

As to the first concern, this can be resolved by changing one of our 3/3 talents to 2/2, the two likely candidates I see are Illumination and Tower of Radiance. Either could easily be 2/2 (moving Illum to 15% per point or moving ToR to 50% per point). This would then allow us to fill out one of the five optional 2/2 talents (Last Word, Enlightened Judgements, Denounce, Imp. Conc, Blessed Life).

As to the second concern, tackle it on two fronts. First change a talent in the first tier of Prot so that Holy desires, and then tweak/replace/add so that we have a deep holy talent we desire (beyond what we currently consider mandatory). Then we have some real decisions to make, 31/0/10, 33/2/6, 31/2/8, etc.. I really like the concept that placing a couple of talent points differently can make a paladin shine versus the spec 31/0/10 and one point in Holy is flexible (leaving all paladins identical).

Edit - correct grammar and fat fingers

We removed the prereq chain from Divine Illumination to Aura Mastery and Light of Dawn. We had the prerq in there to make sure paladins didn't skip over a powerful group utility talent in a perhaps selfish attempt to enhance their personal healing per second, but we do acknowledge that it is far less useful in say 5-player dungeons.
