The Least Picked Talents

It's been up for a while, but Gregthegreat has a great list he's assembled of the least picked Pally talents. Check it out. Guess which tree is being looked down upon? Yep - Protection. Humans breathe air and the sky is blue.

Hrm... I wonder why Prot is the least spec'd tree...? ;)

That's a pretty revealing thread by Greg, though it would be nice to see all the data. For example, most/least popular by Tier, which are used as 'filler' talents (by for example looking at which have 3/5 points them rather than 5/5 in order to reach the next higher Tier), and possibly split it by choice of end-game (PvE, PvP or a mixture).

But no matter. What is clear is that Prot is unpopular, and for quite obvious reasons IMO. It needs work, but with Rogues and Warriors screaming for attention, and prepping for Burning Crusade I think we are out of luck before 2.02 (augmented by the obvious fact that Paladin Tanking or support improvement will not be any sort of a priority). Of course, that probably extends to Shaman too.

Yet again, we are reaping the fallout of the debacle of 1.9.

I just wonder how stupid they can be. It never occured to them that moving a 21 point talent to 31 and nerfing it (remember they didn't tell us about the threat buff for a few weeks after it settled down) wouldn't cause a near riot? It's not rocket science and any of the CMs (who's job is PR) should have been able to tell them that.

Protection is simply an inferor tree. The majority of good talents are 20 points or below, and the one shining star of the tree, reckoning is a damage dealing talent. The other great talent, improved conentration aura was put in as filler, and belongs in the casting tree (holy).

Holy shield as it exists is a horrible 31 point talent for pvp. Who needs more damage vs rogues and warriors? If they actually gave us a seal that worked with a 1 hander, was pvp viable, and holy shield also absorbed some magic damage, it would be worthwhile. If it had a decent co-efficent, it might be good also, but that got hit with the nerf bat awhile back.

All I want back is for me to be able to take both reckoning and repentence again. If repentence won't be moved back put reckoning in the ret tree.
