Where should I put my last two points?

My current build. I'm torn as to where I should spend my last points. Seals of the Pure seems like the obvious choice, but it's pretty lousy. I'm thinking about just taking Pursuit of Justice because a disarmed tank is a panic situation, but I'm not sure how often it happens. And the movement speed would mean I can run flags.

From a purely raid standpoint, what's my best bet?

You should consider dropping points from benediction for other areas like SotP and HotC.

I'd say PoJ, the speed boost is as good as it gets. My personal recommendation is to drop benediction to 1/5, fill Heart of the crusader and PoJ.

I'm thinking about doing exactly as you two say. I suppose the issue really comes down to the makeup of whatever party I raid with is. Your spec is probably the best option when there aren't any other paladins.

Really, I guess I'm just curious about the value of Benediction. I haven't actually specced it yet, aside from a brief stint while leveling as Ret. 10% doesn't really sound like that much given that all mana issues mean is dropping Cons a little less often.

Of course, if I get a dedicated Ret pally, I would drop Kings and HotC for 3/5 SotP, Divine Guardian, and full Benediction. Probably.

Meh, regardless, it's still a ways off. I wish I had more time to play.

Benediction is very bleh. For instance you get more out of this glyph without spending 5 points on it. It also has a very small window of usefulness. If you weren't mana starved before you won't benifit from this talent. If you were, you would need to be only a little mana straved or you will be still short on mana.

Well, it's 1/5 benediction or.. 1/2imp BoM? In any situation where it's extra scaling would matter you're likely to have another paladin with 2/2 in that. Either way it's a toss-up.

Just don't completely diss it just because it's what it is. The effects on stacking reductions and more sa mana can have some funny results. I'm definitely glad i have 5/5 benediction + sa glyph while leveling.
