Vengeance Info + The Ultimate Showdown

Metrokard has some info on the latest change to Seal of Vengeance:
seal of vengence on proc with a one hand only gives one application of the dot, but proc with a 2 hand it gives you two applications of the proc
Seems to me like a good change to make it semi-scale with the kind of weapon used, much like what is now done with Seal of Righteousness. Cool stuff!

Update: He's given me an update stating that it also seems to give double procs with one handers as well, but that it's random. Bug then I guess?

Also Credit to Micah: a 40 Paladin versus 40 Shaman smackdown took place on the Scarlet Crusade server. Who won? Appearantly the forces were so massive that when they clashed together they took down the server (and Chuck Norris almost died). There are videos coming.

Hmm. Two debuffs with a 2hr? That's pretty sweet. Since this is a PPM seal, aren't 2hrs more likely to apply debuffs per hit?

I've heard that, so long as the tanking Paladin adds the first debuffs, all other debuffs added to the stack, including those added by other Paladins, are applied threat-wise to the person who initially placed the stack.

If this is the case:
Tank paladin taps the mob with SoV on a 2hr, then switches to 1h/shield.
DPS paladins (Ret fellows) use their 2hrs to add to the stack.

Result? Full stack in no time, judge for 600+, tank paladin has solid aggro in no time. Just gotta keep him alive for the few seconds that he has the 2hr equipped.

So if 1 handers apply the debuff twice as fast, and you only need 1 to get the stack started, why would you use a 2 hander to start the stack? Basically as long as you get it up there first you would be set for the ret pallies to add to it with their two handers.

Only problem I see is a paladin's best tanking comes from having another paladin do the work for him. Don't ever recall another warrior depending on another player to get their aggro high quickly. Only that the raid hold off for a bit to get the aggro built up first.

A behind the scenes look at the making of paladin BC armor. There are LULZ to be had.
