Paladin Tank question

Postby Harina » Sat Dec 08, 2007 7:22 pm

I started 4 days ago and now i'm level 43. I was wondering if I should start a fight with SoR Judgement or SoC Judgement. Since I have no AS, pulling is kinda tricky :P

You should start a fight with Judgement of the Crusader or Wisdom, and then use SoR.

We use a paladin to tank all of the "easy" trash in Hyjal, simply because their AE aggro is far superior to that of the other tanking classes (Druids/Warriors).

If you're Horde, Seal of Blood may also become an option once you're high enough. It depends on how much spell damage is on your gear. If you have a good amount, Righteousness is the way to go.

You shouldn't even have SOC..
JoCrusader, SoR/SoV after that.

kologer0s, do you even play this game?

I thought of that too, but it's possible he's specced Ret and gets asked to tank sometimes.

judge righteousness first, you need the initial threat generation to get ahead of everyone else (people tend to get a bit ancy and not wait for you to build threat)

Lies, it's not being ancy, it's maximizing DPS! And good tanks can hold aggro even if you start 1-2 seconds after they do, and really good ones can hold it if you start at the same time!

thats not a problem for good warriors, but for pallies, its a bit harder :o .... unless the target is undead, then its no problem what so ever

however, avenger shield allows people to attack right at the start, unless theres a sapped target and you can't use it, inwhich case i just let people die a few times for being stupid -> wtb threat metre imo

true. i have a lvl 60 bloodelf pally, i use to be prot but i changed to retri. it is easy to kill a mob speced retri how ever once u in spec prof you lose the ability to hold lots of mobs. yes concecration can help however with not shield you will be overwhelmed.
For the horde!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As for Judging right off the bat... it does nothing for multiple mobs. It does work for a boss or single target but I would rather see a consecrate blow off. SoR/Judge is great for the extra bump in threat though!

When a pally tanks and you have a good healer... who needs cc? Face pull and fart/holy shield means game over!

As stated above maintankadin is a great resource. and i would start with JOR if you need the initial threat. if you are becoming mana starved tell the dps to wait or die and start with JOW... actually the safe bet is to tell the dps to wait or die, and if they wont listen DI the healer and let em get their face eaten
