Protection Paladin, Spike Damage

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

 

I need some help with optimizing my protection paladin, for some reason i'm getting a lot of spiky damage especially at encounters like Jugger/Nazgrim while i still have SotR up.

 

So i was wondering if you guys could take a look at my logs, and maybe point me at some things that i can improve.

 

World of Logs:

- http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-5rw4pmio19dmj8n8/

 

Armory:

- http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ravencrest/Stefenie/simple

 

Besides that i got some troubles holding threat against my OT, even with using Hand of Salvation my OT seems to overtake me quickly ( For the record he's a druid ).

 

Any idea on how to change this or to improve?

 

Thanks a lot in advance!

Sorry for the wait, I've been fairly busy today. I will likely be unable to help you until thursday, but I might take a break during my work load tomorrow to break it down.

Your armory link is broken

As for your problem being threat: I can't tell without armory, since worldoflogs is difficult to analyze, but I'm guessing its the fact that druids are amazing at damage and paladins are the worst.

 

Looking at your logs, you don't seem to be taking any avoidable damage, but your SotR uptime is really low. Having inconsistent and low uptimes will cause your healers tons of stress and make them have to bounce around a lot on what they want to heal, even entice raid healers to heal you when they shouldnt. Focus more on keeping yourself with higher uptimes. As a comparison, I have a 54% uptime to your 38% uptime, and we both use the stay-out strat. I recommend Holy Avenger for that reason, since theres a fair amount of time where you're not tanking/doing nothing, Holy Avenger becomes your best talent since it'll be active only when you want it.

 

Nazgrim has the same problem, your 37% to my 58%.

 

I recommend you fix up your rotation to generate more holy power, then use it correctly instead of waste it away by capping. The rotation never really changes from the rotation listed in the Prot Paladin guide on this website, and I recommend you touch up on it, and make sure to maximize your shield usage.

Armory link is broken due to Ravencrest servers still being down, i can't check any of my characters on that server right now.

Probably still maintenance.

 

Now for Holy Avenger, i will try that talent out and see how it goes.

Got another raid tomorrow is it ok to post my logs again?

Sounds good :)

 

I really recommend getting one of the amp trinkets (even if its a caster one) over that rooks talisman. I use two amps and it's just amazing. The vial is great too though, so dont sub it out on progression, or fights that are CD based.

Fouton just wondering what SoO fights you use Holy Avenger on?

I can see the benefit of it in fights where there are significant spike phases like Malkorak Blood rage.

I never specced into it because I'm not progression raiding and couldn't be bothered to add another cooldown :P

Yeah normally i use the amp one from Thok, but i don't have it equipped right now due to solo tanking Malkorok 25 man HC needed that trinket for it.

I use it on every fight. It's theoretically worse, but almost every fight in SoO you aren't tanking 100% of the time, or could benefit from additional cooldowns. I personally think it's just better due to it's real usage, rather than it's simmed value. Exceptions where I could argue DP can be better but I'm too lazy to switch: immerseus, FP, galakras (ground tank only), spoils and paragons

      So, as you know, Execution Sentence was reduced by 15% in the last hotfix as seen here https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/20478238/hotfixes-january-18
      With that, I am curious to see if execution sentence is still worth taking over Final Verdict (without legendary cloak).
      Thoughts?

      Hello,
      the gods of rng decided to reward me today with a  Draught of Souls titanforged from the timewalking chest. My question is, do I use it when I have max stacks of crusade or just use it on cd? Say for a fight that lasts 6 mins.
      Thanks!

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello everyone
      My guild and I raided EN last sunday and cleared normal mode easy enough and because we still had time, we started a heroic run aswell. For HC, I started a log that includes the boss kills Nythendra, Il'gynoth and Dragons of Nightmare.
      I am able to extract quite a bit of information for healers and DDs, but it seems that I don't really know what to look for, when trying to determine MY performance as a Blood DK (Yovana). I'm sure the information is there, but when it comes to Tanks in general, I'm struggling a little bit.
      In general, I think I'm doing ok because I don't get complaints from the healers and I don't really die, but if someone could point out obvious mistakes or inefficiencies, that would be very helpful.
      What catches my eye is the rather high amount of overheal of DS with 40%. I know that this is not really good, but then again, if I'm not taking any substantial amount of dmg, I'm not gonna sit on my runes and instead deal dmg with DS. So that explains the overheal a bit.
      Note that we had to top off our group with random players (1 random healer and several random DDs).
      Log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/K6pPWQz2jGCrX9aM#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=summary
      Thank you all for any help in this matter and have a nice day
      Xantrias
