View Full Version : Paladin Paladin tank threat issues.

08-06-2010, 06:58 AM
Hey guys i've been away for a while and i recently got back into tanking. I'm finding i have some issues with threat gen and what not, I'm not to sure if its down to hit rating expertise or whatever. single target threat seems to be the worst i'm having some issues gaining a decent amount of threat on a single boss. AoE threat seems to be ok besides the slight mob pulling away from the pack etc.

Any advise?


Many thanks

IMO your spec could be fiddled with a lil to make it a lil better but again thats just my opinion, I would drop Divinity and put the points to Crusade. You can check out my spec if you want to http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Bladefist&cn=Ultimaspike&gn=Soldiers+of+God

I know you arent a tank noob, hell you are almost geared better than I am, but are you using the correct roataion? Depending on what classes I am running with sometimes hunters can give me problems with threat if I miss an attack or he starts to hit the mob too soon he can get aggro but it doesnt happen very often.

The rotation im running is JoL/HoR/Consc/SoR/HS seems to be normal enough no problems with it but the main thing i have trouble with is locks, Their dots kill my threat lol i'll have a look at your spec now and drop it in my os. To give it a try

http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Runetotem&cn=Shieldie try out my spec. I guarantee you will have an easier time with threat, Your rotation sounds correct but I reccomend JoW instead of light, unless you have another paladin using jow ofcourse. Taking seal of command will help keep mobs from straying off you during aoe, plus will increase your dps, and even allow you to switch out glyph of hammer of the righteous without worrying about its extra aoe.

You dont need 2 spiritual attunement, divine plea, JoW, and BoSanc, with the extra mana from 1/2 SA is more than enough to keep a full mana bar while raiding.

Another note...when you reach the end of the rotation you listed, what's next? A common mistake is to start over at the beginning but that isnnot correct. Your next one after thenrotation you listed should be another 6 then 9 then 6 etc.
