although I've known for 3 months that the chance of my contract getting renewed was <10%, I'm still shattered now the final word is out. I'm out of a job at the end of this month :(

And just like that, we lost 3 people in our raid, maybe a fourth one... guess why? because of daily burnout... they hate they have the vp but cannot spend it because the gear they need in order to squeeze something extra out of their character is behind a reputation lock...

my poor raid lead is gonna try his hardest to plug the holes somehow...

I thought this happened with spells by default - i.e. that pressing alt and clicking the spell casts it on yourself - or is that just certain spells?

Depends on what you have set as your self-cast key in the options (Interface->Combat). I have mine set to shift, for example.

It's sort of stupid to have to respec for trash and then re-respec for bosses.

Well, I blame it on our AoE threat, or lack thereof.

Maybe I'm wrong but it seems to me that over 2 min HP does pretty similar damage than ES if used on CD every 20 sec (at least according to tooltips). So I don't really see the need for respec for bosses.

Holy Prism is awesome. I use it all the time when tanking 5 mans these days. It also has its uses on some boss fights (Sha of Fear, Empress...)

Current guild I'm trialing in just had a GM change. I'm watching as all the new GM's friends are promoted to officer and I wonder if my trial days are numbered considering the new GM did not want to trial me to begin with.

1) You're wrong. Or rather, you'd be right if we had lots of empty GCDs to play with, but if you're playing properly you don't, so the actual damage of HP over that period is reduced by the opportunity cost of extra Cons/HW casts. ES is the solid winner in the DPS category against single targets (HPr would win for 3-5 targets, I think).
2) I wasn't talking about ES. LH is extremely valuable as a raid cooldown. HPr is relatively weak for that since it's limited to 5 targets. LH is also better for AoE above 5 targets for the same reason.

So, I'm a Boss raid-survival oriented tank by choosing LH.

That's my story, and i'm sticking to it!

That's generally why I take it. I also like the fact that it's a 1-minute cooldown instead of 20 seconds. Holy Prism's niche is really 5-mans, where snap aggro is important at fairly regular intervals. There are only one or two bosses where that comes into play at all.
