    Paladin tanking

    Nowadays, i see alot of paly tanks investing their talent points in Seal of Command and Crusade. I understand the extra dmg and threat on the multi-mobs, but i personlly dont think its a huge boost from my current talent, which is...

    I think my build is somewhat easy for MTing raids, but i seldom get whispers from other tanks criticizing my specs and somewhat laughing at me for it.... So im just wondering what change i should possibly make and looking for some detailed explanation of the advantage of some of the talents....

    Ps. The link up there is my pvp gear/spec, so ignore the other stuff
    Also, my tanking gear is 3100+ Wowheroes GS... if it helps to determine which talent to use...??..

    Seal of command is for trash is ICC its not a threat on boss thing they will only use that seal on trash.

    The problem with your build is the lack of the real threat talents Heart of crusader, Vengance and conviction.
    Your 2 points missing from judgements of the just means you are totally relying on others to provide attack speed slows and you have 5 points wasted in divinity to get 5% extra healing and 3 in stoicism to reduce stuns .. are you PVP'ing or tanking ICC????

    Second time today had to provide the link .. this is full discussion on pally threat
    http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.c...rb_v=viewtopic

    In that discussion best threat generic live/undead build looks like
    http://www.wowarmory.com/talent-calc...00000000000000

    However as they discuss the there is wiggle room in the last few points in ret tree and 1 option is to move 1 one point from conviction to seal of command.

    The 53 points in the prot tree are pretty standard some add an extra to fill spiritual attunement so 53/18 or 54/17 are the most common specs but very different to your 53/18 setup

    Spec into http://www.wowhead.com/spell=53696 and http://www.wowhead.com/spell=26016. These are essential tanking talents, and it's not wise to assume someone else will always bring them.

    Also pick up http://www.wowhead.com/item=43368. It's another threat bump in ICC.
