View Full Version : Tanking spec help?

06-03-2009, 12:41 PM
Alright so I have always been pretty bad at specing my characters and could use some help with my paladin tank,

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-talents.xml?r=Azgalor&n=Igotsahat&group=1)

There is my Armory...

I have seen many people not grab reckoning, but i'm not sure the reasoning behind that, it has always seemed good to me.

But if anyone has advice for a spec feel free to toss it at me!

On another note, I was wondering how I have so little health, I feel like I have really good gear (for the most part) but my health never seems to go up? Although once I get my +111 Stam trinket from Heroic AN and finish my JC to get that trinket, my health might jump up a bit...

Thanks for the help!

first off....max out Divine Strength, more strength = more damage mitigated when blocked

2nd, with spiritual attunement, divine plea and blessing of sanc - u shouldnt be running out of mana, 10% mana reduction is pointless and besides, u gave up 5% parry?? think mitigation!! not mana reduction

3rd, get touched by the light maxed out - u might not have any threat issues now but as ur dps gears up more, u will most likely have threat issues - besides more spell dmg = more dps done on ur part :p

lastly please get ur helm and shoulder enchants, argent crusade revered and start the Sons of Holdir quest chain...sorry pet peeve of mine, unenchanted items bug me

Do The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/talent-calc.xml?cid=2&tal=0000000000000000000000000035005035003102311333 31232151130050000300000000000000)

You can take the 3 in divinity and put them in divine sacrifice/guardian if you prefer.

Put a dodge/stam gem in your shoulders.

Reckoning isn't actively bad it just produces less threat/damage than spending the points in the ret tree.

Bolstered legplates would be slightly better legs for you. Your best bet is actually dragonbrood legguards from H OS. If your guild isn't running that, its easy enough to pug.

Get the shoulder and head enchants.

Switch your glyphs to vengence/divine plea/judgement (major) and add sense undead and lay on hands (minor)
