View Full Version : Tanking New to 4.0 Prot Pally Talents/Rotation

03-10-2011, 11:53 AM
Hey, I need some help with my talents/rotation for pally tanking in cata. I'm only 81 currently, but I'd like to start tanking randoms and then heroics when I get to them.


Should I respec and take out consecrate and seals of the pure points? If so, where should I put the remainder? Improved Judg/Rule of Law? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, what's the general rotation look like these days? I read some threads and there seemed to be a couple different ideas, especially for AoE vs. single. Also, I don't really expect a full guide, but what are the big differences between WotLK tanking and Cata/what new spells are good for pally tanking?

Sorry if this should be posted elsewhere/I ask stupid questions, didn't see much in the FAQ.

single target: CS>Judge>CS>X>CS>ShotR

Multi Target: HotR>X>HotR>X>HotR>Inquisition

Where X is Avenger's shield > holy Wrath >Consercration

You will still need to work Judgement into your AoE rotation just to keep mana up, and ideally you should open a fight with a DP> holy power dump to get Holy shield up and frontload some threat.
