What's Your Spec?

Here's mine. I had to grab Guardian's Favor because I can't live without it. It's just so damn good.

I just love tanking, and Imp Concentration Aura was easier to grab then spending 10 points in holy to get spiritual focus.

I went 40 into Holy then grabbed Seal of Command. I really wanted to have Guardians favor but in the past i have found it difficult to do damage without Command.

It almost makes me cry when I think about how the evil Blizzardians promised Protection talents bliss, only to give Protection talents piss. It's like they actually want Paladins to be angry.

On a gigantic sidenote, I would love to see Deflection moved to tier 1. Why not ffs... warriors have it there, why force us (prot palas) to waste 5 pts in either imp BoM (arguably useless) or Benediction (arguably useless now)?

As a tank, I do not want more AP from a blessing I will never ever use... ok given it has a certain raid utility but let's face it, the rogies will probably prefer BoS or maybe BoK or even BoSanc, the last 2 exclusively obtained from Prot talents.
Benediction, mm nice less mana cost on Seals/Judgement. But I'm a tank you see? I don't seal/judge enough to make it useful, and if you heal me, you give me mana. 15% mana reduction... for shame! It might as well be 15% increased mana cost, still wouldn't matter. As a retrib pala, I love the talent! But then again I'm spamming Judgements and such as retrib...

I had planned to post a spec link but I can't make up my mind about what I'll do without the 'good' prot talents. Guess I'll go take some pills now and sleep until BC, maybe Prot will be what they said it would be by then.

Our Builds are very Similar, but mine is soley for PVP and Grinding Power, My last 2 weeks have been debating that very thing, Gaurdians Favor vs Imp Judgement.


I went with Imp Judgement, dont get me wrong though, I love healing in PVP and keeping people alive, but until Im 70, Im going to stick with Imp Judgement. When BC comes Im going 44/17/0

I just wanted the extra Ooomph

I really miss Improved Judgement and Benediction.

I agree with Anonymous above also. They should move Deflection to Tier 1 Retribution and move Improved Retribution Aura to Tier 2. That way a Prot Pally can spec in to Ret and grab plenty of points that will be very beneficiary.

I tried out Crusader Strike 10/0/41 to be exact. It is so extremely cool atm. with decent you can easily manage to dish out 4k-6k dmg within 3sec.
I know it will be nerfed, but until then, I'd really recommend you to enjoy it a bit.
Without any crits and even a stun resist I managed to defeat a rank 14 warrior in a duel without healing me and with 40% life left, several times.

Check the HOLY GUIDANCE bug guys, +35% of our total intellect is indeed added to spell dmg/heal but if u
check melee stats u will see in weapon DMG a nice boost, it will show something like xxx - xxx + X, where X is
the 35% of your total intellect. Needless to say that when ig ot like 400 intel, i get +139 dmg bonus and
get to see ~560 crits with Lok'Amir!!!
Funny thing is Blizzard is f**king with us, this bug was known at least since October 30th and was allowed
to go live, just as with vengeance+crusader strike nerfs. It's like "hey paladins, u liked the DMG? blizzard
LOLs @ you, that was the demo, go get TBC now and forget it".
Improved Seal of Righteousness doesnt do anything and SoR does not benefit from holy guidance. Tested and
verified with 2 paladins, full tier 2 only and blade of eternal justice. My friend had no talents spent at
all, i had all talents in place, 5/5 improved SoR, 5/5 holy guidance and my SoR did like +5-7 more dmg.
+5-7 more dmg per hit I get when using brilliant wizard oil.
Everything is bugged and it's Blizzard lol-ing at us.

With this spec i beat rogue, warrior and druid. Hunter 50/50. But don't have chance with casters.

I've gone with a 40/0/11 build. My guild, Order of the Raven, is top on my server in progression & all we run is Naxx now (just have 4h, Sapphiron, and Kel'Thuzad left, then we're done). That said, my spec is 90% for raiding with tier 3 and PvP with tier 2.


The 11 points in ret also help with the Loatheb fight, which I can honestly say has become a lot easier with the new talents all around.
