Natural Balance, Pally AoE heal, party full HP. Yup, "weak" heal.
Pointing towards an exception rather than a norm isn't appropriate.
This Natural Balance doesn't appear to be in my ruby grid or my talent tree.
Requiring a reincarnation skill to be "decent" at off-healing or self-healing should be an indication that there's an issue with the Paladin class itself.
Paladin off-heals is an oxymoron.
Compare that to the Warden's off-healing.
Paladins can AoE heal once a minute-ish, 20 yard range, or double healing for 10 seconds within 20 yards.
Wardens can balance HP with 40 yd? range and make 50% HP heal pots with unlimited range.
Remove reincarnation skills, and you have a party heal, a self killvamp, and a die-hard skill which is inferior to the warrior's die-hard.
I would place my wariness of any Paladin far below my wariness of Warriors like Bubbakeg.
