No, paladin threat isn't low, and no, that isn't a wise decision at all.Also, is Prot Paladin threat low compared to other tanks (after considering vengeance)? He seems to be going massively into hit rating at the sacrifice of avoidance and mastery. Is this a wise decision?
This player doesn't know what they're doing when it comes to reforging. Reforging avoidance stats to Hit rating is a terrible trade-off; healer mana (and hence reducing/smoothing out incoming damage) matters, threat does not. Any Hit or Expertise on an item can be safely reforged to Mastery.Here is a armory link for those interested: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte.../dorr/advanced
Any input regarding his reforging, gemming, enchanting, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I'm not a fan of his talent spec either, as 2/2 Hallowed Ground but no Grand Crusader (even 1/2) and 2/3 Rule of Law is sub-optimal for single target fights. Eternal Glory is also a fantastic talent for progression raiding, given that threat should be a non-issue outside of the first 30 seconds of a fight and Holy Power should, in most cases, be used for Word of Glory heals past that point
I think that player is either uninformed, or looking to maximise personal DPS at the expense of their survivability. Even then, they're not making those trade-offs in a smart way.
