I'm an old school prot warrior who has recently converted his old holy pally to tankadin. A lot of what there is about pallies these days is new to me, and I was hoping to throw a few question to those more learned than myself.
I've been 80 for about a week now and, as impatient as I can be, am chomping at the bit to get into some MT raiding roles. I'm constantly comparing myself to my warrior and definately feel a lot more squishy than he. In fact, several times during a heroic I've had healers ask me if i was def capped.
Is there anything I am particularly missing as far as gem/chant/gear selection goes? Should I be focusing more on Block than I am, and if so, how do I do this without sacrificing stam?
Sacred Shield's usually up, but to be honest, it does slip away from me from time to time. I personally never thought a shield that absorbed 500dmg was really that valuable, so it has never really been a priority. Am I underestimating it? Or just not understanding it?
I would say your gear is quite fine, a got place to hunt for better leg armor would be sartha 10. That is y I actually asked you if you kept up holy shield, because I didn't see a problem with your gear.
One thing about your chest enchant, people might disagree on it but, you could swap it for the defense enchant to further increase your avoidance.
Obs it is. Hopefully I can persuade my guild to stoop back to that level.
I went for the stam enchant because, once I hit the def cap, it was imperative for me to get my HP up as high as possible. My server seems a little paranoid when it comes to tanks, and people have a tendency to get their hackles up when they don't see big numbers upon starting a PUG.
I could use a better weapon enchant as well, but until i get a decent weapon, I'm sticking with the cheap chains.
Oh, and yeah, Holy Shield usually goes up as soon as i pull, and stays up.
