    You mean mixing SoR and SoV? I'll do that sometimes depending on mana and cooldowns.

    Is that 20 mins from then or 20 mins from when I logged on 10 mins ago?

    Ok well I rewrote the Holy paragraph, as I stole that one from Munkus. the other ones I had already rewritten. Rewrote the introduction, and put in Sabremau's Retribution spec and my Protection spec. I'm not entirely sure what a good Holy spec is though. I know its supposed to be 41/20, but I can't figure out whether I'm supposed to be taking Blessed Life or something.

    Might want to include the situational (As in, you have enough Paladins in 25-mans) Holy buffbot spec that gets Imp Might

    So, at 49, there is a tankadin on my server who has invested all his points in prot and has neither reckoning, blessing of sanctuary, holy shield nor ardent defender. Oh, I specced ret prematurely (at 49) so that this guy could tank our mara run, since we were both prot. WHOOPS.

    And the worst...IMP DEVO AURA D:

    not having sanctity aura is ok, all your points in prot at level 49 is perfectly understandable as there are almost as many talent points in Prot to take that are nice as there are talent points to SPEND (bloated ass fucking tree). However at level 49, nothing hits hard enough to bypass Ardent Defender and with PuG healers I spent a lot of time below 35%

    Er
    Blessing of sanctuary.

    Oh and yes. Apparently he HAD holy shield, he just never used it!

    I never used it and still don't unless in Hyjal and only then if I can have Kings AND Sanctuary.

    Yes, but it's also the prereq for holy shield D:

    true. and Holy Shield is the meat of your AOE aggro against melee enemies until you get some serious spell damage.

    I always found BoSanc to be useful while leveling. It's not as useful in instances where kings does a better job overall. I think it'd be much better if the mitigation aspect was applied after DR and not before, but when it comes to raiding content that's negligible anyway.

    It tends to shine best when facing dual wielding mobs which hit fairly softly to begin with. I would love to see that blessing get reworked or get some better scaling with the expansion.

    We're going to have the prot paladin tank RoS tonight. He's done most of phase 3 before when the warrior died, but phase 2 without reflected Deadens should be interesting! I'm really hoping that the warrior doesn't manage to get off work after all, I want to see if our DPS can pull it off.

    So your Interruptors are going to kick shocks AND deadens?

    I'd love to hear how that turns out. We missed 2 Deadens last night, and spent about 9seconds at "oom" before Desire died. Have your Inner Focus Dispels/Devour Magics/Lay on Hands ready!

    I've done P3 and it's pretty trivial and might even be better then a Prot Warrior for P3. But our kickers can't seem to manage deaden + spirit shock if they have to do both.

    Yeah, like the theory is that a LOT of us just don't DPS during Deaden, myself (destro lock, I have a high chance of one-shotting myself) and the #1 hunter particularly, he says he just auto-shots during Deaden or he'll die... So without that restriction, full-on DPS the whole time, we're curious to see if it'll make up for the damage bonus from Deaden we'll be missing. The key thing is yeah getting them to kick Deadens instead of ignore them. Have to remind them to turn off those Deaden-hiding addons.

    Just got done tanking kara, it was so much more fun than healing. One of our druid tanks went resto for the run. Now we both wanna trade roles for 25 mans too :p

    Also, it figures that I dont see triptych for about a year straight running kara. I got mag's shield the other night, and guess what was in the chest at chess event :(

    Ahh well

    we have killed Jan'alai every reset for about four months now.

    Our prot warrior wanted the Bulwark of the Amani Empire so badly, and I had the Nightbane one while he had Sha'tar crest so I was happy to pass it to him.

    The one day he can't come to ZA and we bring our feral druid?

    BAM, Shield drops. Mine!

    Normally we bring at least one of our holy paladins to each run, sometimes two. I wonder what drops off him last night?

    BAM, Enamelled Disc of Mojo.

    Go me.

    I found the most fun in the world to be the standard Sanc + Ret Aura + Shield Spike + Holy Shield when facing those monks in SM Armory who hit very lightly and at 100mph. I discovered that I could stand there and have conversations with the mages in /say and periodically /wave at the healer while entire swarms of the little buggers would simply beat themselves to death on me. So much fun! :D

    Also I was told to bring locks n' socks. I have a few to pass out if anyone needs them. Who were we mercilessly beating this time around?
