Just a head's up...

Saw one of your posts on http://wow.consolenewsblog.com/ without any mention of credit, or a link back to your blog.

Thought you might like to know they're taking your content.

(I found them when I followed a link to their site from http://www.aeigelus.com/ after an entry there had mentioned that their content was being stolen by that site as well, and happened to recognize one of your entries...)

Haha!

You know, I'm enjoying tanking nowadays, but I don't enjoy having my Warrior friend have 2k+ more hitpoints than me when he's in his tanking gear. =C

I mean, I still had nearly 9k HP overall on a Mana Tombs run with a Priest with Fort and a Lock with his Imp (improved, somehow, +87 sta) and Kings.

On a slightly different topic - anyone else notice that Mana Tombs sucks to tank as a Paladin? Pandemonius is bad enough (they wouldn't even let me try to tank him because we had a Warrior), but the whole Darkcaster-Mana Burn thing is nuts, and "Curse of Impotence really does reduce my Holy Damage output to Nil. I only have some 115 spelldamage in my tanking gear, and that Curse reduces my threat output tremendously. Coupled with "inferior" mitigation and hitpoints, I worry.

Anyway... Heh, I love PA. I do wish, however, that I had never rolled a Paladin as my first character 2 years ago. I mean, he's fun, and I enjoy tanking, but... I think I would have enjoyed a Pure class more - or at least one that can put out the whupass at a slightly greater intensity than a Protection Paladin.

Another side note:

Seal of Blood procs Reckoning? =C I enjoy Seal of Vengeance, though it's a bit spotty, but if I could offensively/proactively proc Reckoning in PvP, that'd be pretty epic. Oh well. I suppose SoV really is a "tanking" seal (though it has helped my questing quite a bit) while SoB is quite the small-group PvP seal.

That's all.

This is my biggest concern also

With 41pts (min) in Prot + 12pts in Ret. I can't really do much else than Tank.

Having 2k health less than a warrior & less effective moves for damage avoidance makes me wonder whether we have just bought into Blizzard's concept of Paladin's being a comptetitive choice for MT rather than the reality of a warrior almosts always being the best choice.

P.S When a waarior isn't the best choice a Bear Tank will be.

This makes me a sad Panda.
