Timeless Drops for a Protadin

2 posts in this topic



I have a low ilvl healer paladin alt I'm starting to focus a little bit on.

His offspec is currently retri but I'd like to give a go to tanking as the offspec.


Seeing as Timeless isle tokens are a nice way to get my ilvl close to 500 (yes, his gear is that low) I was wondering if i should put the lootspec Prot or Ret.


Seeing the stat prio for protection consists mainly of "dps stats" I'm wondering if the lootspec is smart enough to give me haste+accuracy items over avoidance items, or should i go with retri lootspec and sell away the crit items i might get?

Hi Ceraius


I believe retribution is the best lootspec because we mainly need DPS stats. Protection lootspec gives dodge/parry items which aren't very useful. The only time I put mine on protection during LFR/Flex, is when that particular boss drops a weapon/shield/trinket. You might get a dodge/parry/... tank item this way, which is usable if the current item in that slot is really bad, but usually I just disenchant it.

      I recently switched from DK Tank to Paladin Tank (Similar stat prios) and I was wondering how much haste should I aim for and is Versatility more important than Haste like AskMrRobot says? 
      I raid twice a week but I mainly do M+ Content and I seem to be stuck at M+7 so if you have any advice there I will gladly take it. 
      Here's a link to my Paladin.
      I am in my raid spec currently and I switch my lvl 100 talent to Last Defender when I do M+.
      Any help is appreciated. :)

      Hi guys,
      I'm trying to use an uncommon build: Crit - mastery - versatility - haste - because I thought to max my dps without lose too much survivality.
      These are my stats atm, with 2 different trinket.
      What do you think? am I doing a huge mistake?
      I'm 4/7 HC without problem, but i can't find a good trinket so i'm thinking that maybe i'm going to a wrong direction.
