Pick my tank apart! Protection Paladin
OK new tank (2 weeks old). I have had some conflicting criticisms (and I'm sure to get some more) but I want to get feedback on everything from gear to glyphs.
Here's my armory: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...jaeden&cn=Tyog
I've been told:
Lose both trinkets for stam trinkets. (I'm guessing The Black Heart and Corroded Skeleton Key)
Lose all non pure stamina gems and enchants.
Lose 1 point in spiritual attunement and all 3 from benediction and put them in conviction.
My stamina is 37619 with Blessing of Sanctuary and Flask of Stoneblood. That's still too low?
I'm getting 101.88% avoidance from the unhittable macro WITH Holy Shield up (71.88% without)- but that's going to drop if I change gems, enchants and trinkets for pure Stamina.
/run ChatFrame1:AddMessage(format("Unhittable at 102.4%% - you have %.2f%%", GetDodgeChance() + GetBlockChance() + GetParryChance() + 5 + 1/(0.0625 + 0.956/(GetCombatRating(CR_DEFENSE_SKILL)/4.91850*0.04))))
I'm using the 96969 starting with Shield of Righteousness then Judgement of Wisdom, Hammer of the Righteous, Holy Shield, Shield of Righteousness then Consecration. I skip Consecration if Omen looks good (sometimes using Hand of Reckoning or Holy Wrath in its place). I try not to use Avenger's Shield to pull, usually using Hand of Reckoning followed by Consecration instead. I have not figured out the right time to use Avenging Wrath.
I'm using Ret aura and Seal of Command on trash and Vengeance on bosses. I feel this is important because I have trouble pulling and holding multiple mobs (at 2 weeks of practice).
I'm using Tidy Plates: Threat Plates and Healbot configured for Righteous Defense and assist Hand of Reckoning. I still suck quite a bit and using the dungeon finder I've found most people don't have the patience for a slow going tank in training.
For references I've been using: RAWR, WOW-Heroes, Maintankadin, Paladin Schmaladin, and Elitist Jerks.
I think that's all the pertinent information. If you take the time to comment, please be thorough (translated: idiot proof) and don't clown. I really am trying to learn the tank role.
