Hello guys,

Im new to prot paladin and was bloody since the 5.0 until now, i've looked around for many guides and stuff, but i think my performance is subpar and could be better.

Im leading my raid and my initial thought is that im screwing some rotation or buffs because of calls and stuff..

Anybody can help please?

Thanks!

You seem to be lacking Highly in mastery. Being that a tankadin's main Damage mitigation is from shield of the righteous, Mastery would be the Number one thing to reforge to. I see a few haste reforges that could be mastery instead. It also doesn't help that you have a few DPS pieces.

Try looking through here and seeing what you can do.

I would recommend the Control/Mastery Priority.

Control/Haste I assure you is the standard now.

Look over the rotation part of the guide that EgoReaper posted. Looks like you used hammer of the righteous over your crusader strike too much and didn't prioritize CS as your most important holy power generator. This will help you with holy power generation which in turn will let you get off more Shield of the Righteous.

If you use weak auras addon you might go over to www.Sacredduty.net and download thecks weak auras for prot palys. It helps you with when you should refresh your Sacred Shield (a very important aspect of paly tanking)

take everything that ego said, and completely ignore it. Haste is significantly more effective at smoothing damage curves than mastery, which causes some of the spikiest damage of any tank in the game. basic tips for a prot pally: keep sacred shield up 100% of the time, set up a weak auras icon to monitor its cool down. spam judge and crusader/HoTR all day long and build to 5 holy power if possible. at 5, pop your shield. keep in mind that with a haste build your static mitigation is quite low, so you NEED to have you SoTR active for incoming big hits. from the moment you depress the SoTR key you have mitigation rolling for approx 2.7 seconds, depending on lag. it is for this reason that prot pallies dont have a "rotation", we have necessary spells that must be active at their required times. if you see horridon's triple puncure about to hit you in 4 seconds and you dont have 3 HP ready and waiting, then youre doing something wrong. pally tanking is all about the timing of your shield. another example is jikun: if the cd for talon strike is 3 seconds and you're at 1 HP, youre gonna get your ass handed to you when you take that hit with barely any static mitigation and no fluid mitigation running.

One of the hardest things

take everything that ego said, and completely ignore it. Haste is significantly more effective at smoothing damage curves than mastery, which causes some of the spikiest damage of any tank in the game. basic tips for a prot pally: keep sacred shield up 100% of the time, set up a weak auras icon to monitor its cool down. spam judge and crusader/HoTR all day long and build to 5 holy power if possible. at 5, pop your shield. keep in mind that with a haste build your static mitigation is quite low, so you NEED to have you SoTR active for incoming big hits. from the moment you depress the SoTR key you have mitigation rolling for approx 2.7 seconds, depending on lag. it is for this reason that prot pallies dont have a "rotation", we have necessary spells that must be active at their required times. if you see horridon's triple puncure about to hit you in 4 seconds and you dont have 3 HP ready and waiting, then youre doing something wrong. pally tanking is all about the timing of your shield. another example is jikun: if the cd for talon strike is 3 seconds and you're at 1 HP, youre gonna get your ass handed to you when you take that hit with barely any static mitigation and no fluid mitigation running.

Let me add to this that (for me at least) one of the hardest concepts to grasp is that you can GET 5 Holy Power but you only NEED 3. So ideally you want to wait until you have 5 and then use Shield, but it can be confusing to remember that you can, for instance, get to 5, hit Shield, then hit CS/Jud again and hit SotR once more for Triple Puncture/Snapping Bite/Talon Rake. Don't fall into the trap of always waiting until 5HP; 5 is ideal but better to spend it at 3+ and have it up for that big hit than risk dying because you were waiting until 5. It's a fairly clunky concept and can be very confusing at times.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hey!
      <Growth> is a newly formed guild and we're currently looking for active raiders! The principles of the guild are to respect each other and be willing to both learn and help. We want to do weekly HC clears and progress into Mythic Antorus. Right now we are looking for all roles and classes. 
      If you are interested then write here or contact @Thanagore on the Draenor realm.

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.
