View Full Version : Paladin Glyphing for bosses and trash

07-29-2010, 10:46 AM
I have tried out both healing and ret and I really don't enjoy either one as much as prot. So, I've decided to respec and have 2 prot trees: one for trash/heroics and one for single target bosses.


The tree with RD is the one for bosses and the tree with HotR is for trash. I have Holy Wrath in there since the majority of the trash in ICC is undead.

My questions:
1. Is there a better way to glyph?
2. Any improvements to my talent trees?

Any suggestions so that I could better utilize having two protection trees?

http://www.wowhead.com/talent#sZV0tAbuMusIufdxfMzbc:pG <--- Cookie cutter raiding spec, this grabs all the utility talents - even though Seal of Command is not required for raid bosses, it's still useful in a few situations (lootship adds, Dreamwalker) so I'd value it higher than 1% crit.

Insert third glyph of your choice (Salvation, RD, Judgement, etc.).

http://www.wowhead.com/talent#sZV0xA0uGusIufdxf0dbc:pGN <--- Spec I'd use for powering through trash or 5-mans. All you really do is get rid of Divine Sac (amazing talent for raiding, but skippable for trash or 5-mans) and Vindication (same thing), and use the HotR glyph. Maybe you could take another point from JotJ to get another 1% crit (I forget exactly how the JotJ mechanic works but I believe its application does generate some threat - of course I might be completely wrong about this), or replace the DP glyph with Holy Wrath (although I could never bear to part with another 3% mitigation, even if my survival is not in much danger).

Either way, get rid of that ShoR glyph. If you're having mana issues in 5-mans, sit down and drink for a second or two - if you're having mana issues in raids, you probably forgot to BoSanc yourself or something.

Also, do you have a slow DPS weapon? Getting a 2.6 speed weapon is the difference between beating the DPS in a 5-man, and beating them and sending them home crying to their mommas.
