View Full Version : New Build: Tell Me What You Think (Also, what do you think of my gemming?)

11-25-2009, 03:57 PM
I spent countless hours over the last few days working on the build that I felt would be most beneficial for Pally MTing; after those hours, this is what I came up with... it's not standard, but I wanted to know what others think.

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/talent-calc.xml?cid=2&tal=0500200000000000000000000005305035003132311333 31232150030000000000000000000000)

I'm also curious if anyone has advice on my gemming/gearing

Thank you in advance :D

Hey Mate,

Over all its a good start to a spec but there is defiantly some wasted points and some key talents you are missing.

Firstly Stoicism and Unyielding Faith really are PvP orientated talents. Although they read like they would do good things for an MT you don't get stunned or feared as much as you think you would. Further more when you do (like on Ony) there should be someone else covering for this either through a fear ward or a tremor totem. Having a priest or Shammy cast those is much better then spending 5 points for a lesser effect.

Now that you have freed up those 5 points you really need to put one point into improved judgments to maintain a good Pally tank rotation. Jere has a great write up on the rotation here:

with the rest of the points i would recommend going for Vindication first. It is a great survivability talent that will reduce your incoming damage from bosses a fair bit.

Finally SotP is best threat talent if you are not fighting Humanoid, Undead or demons. IF you are fighting those types then Crusade is a better talent so it is worth pushing further down the ret tree.

Hope that helps.
