Paladin Tanking and Sacred Shield
After a long hiatus i'm starting to move more into tanking. Coming from a holy spec I've become quite neurotic about having Sacred Shield up on my healing targets at all time. This has lead to some annoyance when I see Ret and Prot paladins not using it. To help remedy this (and to help remedy my lower than desired average gear level) I refresh my shield every three to four rotations.
My question is: Are there paladin tanks that refresh their Sacred Shield at some infrequent point in their rotation or is it just a waste of time and mana?
