Hot prot spec for 3.3
What is the best spec for 3.3? I'm thinking of going back to 0/53/18, but I'm not so sure about putting three points in Divine Sacrifice/Guardian. What do you guys think?
The 1 minute up time on sacred shield and the 20% absorb increase is pretty rocking if you dont have a holy pali spec'd into it. I'm loving the 0/53/18 build, the increased dps and tps in ICC is just revoltingly sick. I'm often in the top 3 dps while doing trash pulls and sometimes first in damage done overall.

Get ready to stop your rotation when it comes time to swap on DBS a second or 2 early and to stay out of the fight for a few more seconds if using the tank swap method.
53/18 with Divine Sac/Guardian and Vindication.
Divine Sac makes for a nice cooldown (you likely won't want to actually transfer the damage in a raid setting, so make a macro to immediately cancel the aura, that way your raid gets the buff from Divine Guardian and you don't get instagibbed). Vindication is a huge amount of damage reduction. Crusade, of course, is an amazing threat talent.
can any one link the 53/18 spec... and is it the premiere spec for icc as of now..
This is the cookie cutter build, with the third major glyph slot being Judgement, Avenger's Shield or Righteous Defense - or Hammer of the Righteous for trash.
It's the "best" build for everything except heroic LK, where people my favour an Aura Mastery-containing spec which is heavy on defensive cooldowns as a trade-off for losing a ton of threat talents.
