Just from my own experience with the first four bosses:

 

Immerseus: inv_glyph_majorpaladin.jpgGlyph of Holy Wrath was great since it will stun the Sha Puddles, giving DPS and yourself more time to kill them. 

 

The Fallen Protectors: This fight was very tank light and I found no need to do anything special or different.

 

Norushen: ability_paladin_longarmofthelaw.jpgLong Arm of the Law was nice. I found it useful to have that quick burst of speed in order to avoid sha_spell_fire_blueimmolation.jpgTitanic Smash during the Test of Confidence.

 

Sha of Pride: ability_paladin_speedoflight.jpgSpeed of Light was wonderful since I found myself running everywhere to grab the Sha, unlock players from the Corrupted Prisons, and to help with the Manifestations of Pride.

 

Will add more on other bosses as I get to them.

Here's my experience so far:

 

Immerseus: Lay on hands on a friendly add to instantly full-heal it (or pretty close).

 

Spoils: Be extremely liberal with Hand of Salvation if any specific DPS are pulling threat by going hard too soon (Warriors with early burst cleaving were the usual suspects). I like speed of light for mistweaver spirit escaping, I think that Long Arm of the Law could work well too though. I would not glyph focused shield here.

 

Thok: Speed of Light is super useful to get out of his way in phase 2, and to get to the jailer. Glyphing Focused Shield is a good idea here.

Galakras: Divine Shield scrubs the fire dot so if your raid has trouble (ie, all of them die), you can usually take him out just by keeping him in Jaina's blizzard and keeping yourself alive. Jaina's blizzard deals a large amount of damage is always placed in the same spot.

Edit: Apparently this is being removed if it hasn't already. Even with it in though, Hand ofPurity was still far and away the talent of choice.

 

Edit by Fouton: I've been able to bubble the debuff very recently, it was not removed.

For Sha of Pride I found Light's Hammer to be good for picking up the adds in the back; my co-tank and I alternated depending on which of us was actively tanking the boss, and LH was up every add spawn.  Just run to the back (we tank him in the front by the door, so we can both free people in prisons on 10M), drop LH, drop Cons, and then hit a HotR once the adds are targetable and they stuck to me like glue and usually died by the time I had to taunt the boss back for Wounded Pride.

Experience: 14/14 normal, 2/14 HC

Immerseus: Use Speed of light to quickly get to adds or avoid swirl, fist of justice for longer stun on add. unbreakable spirit for the possibility of 2x lay on hands on healing adds if the fight goes on for a while or HC. Holy prism for aoe/burst healing on adds.

Glyphs: Do not take glyph of divine protection. Blinding Light, Dazing Shield and Holy Wrath are all good for slow/stun on adds.

Protectors: Not much to say here, regular setup, maybe take final wrath for more dmg at the end. 

Norushen: Speed of light to quickly do a run around the boss when beam comes in so you get back in position.

Sha of Pride: Take light's hammer to use when self-reflection adds spawn

Galakras: Speed of light if you're taking tower, fist of justice, EF

Glyphs: do not take divine protection, final wrath biggest dps increase, do not take focused shield

 

Iron juggernaught: Speed of light/Long arm of the law for mines. Can use clemency to BOP others or yourself for mines.

Dark Shamans: Glyph of final wrath is good as you want the most dmg possible at the end.

Nasgrim: Nothing special

Malkorok: Do take Divine protection glyph. Holy avenger for 100% Sotr uptime during blood rage, Focused shield is the biggest dps increase here

Spoils: DP over HA

 

Thok: Speed of light to get to the jailer faster, HA is good for alot more Sotr uptime when you're tanking. Light's hammer is insane on this fight as it's heals for a ton when you have alot of vengeance. Take focused shield for more dmg, do not take Divine protection glyph.

Siegecrafter: HA can be good for 100% sotr for protection frienzy. Focused shield.

Klaxxi: Main thing here is that you take HA if you're tanking Rik'kal at the beggining so you don't get injection(?) cast on you without Sotr up.

Garrosh: Speed of light for transition in P2, EF over SS, unbreakable spirit for more Divine protection, Divine purpose over HA unless you're tanking Garrosh in P3 and not taking adds. Light's hammer vs Holy prism is personal preference, but Light's hammer is a good minor CD for Whirlwinds. Alabastar shield, divine protection is the best for sure. Last one is can be whatever you feel you need, but i prefer holy wrath

protector's

talents:

Clemency is quite nice as BoP remove garrote, use 1 of them quite faster after the fight start and than each time after He's desperate measures to eases the healers job. After the last desperate measures you can use both charges. and the extra sacrifice is nice for the people soaking the Embodied Anguish. 

SW. If tanking both He and Embodied Misery at the same time and the ground slam is causing issues, SW combined with LAotL should clear all the issues.

 

glyphs:

Any glyph that increases cleave dps is a good glyph. I haven't any survival issues tanking He, and my co-tank is saying Rook is tickling him.

 

Tip:

use devotion aura for Calamity. it reduces the damage by quite a lot

Dark Shamans:

 

Controlling the slimes if you are tanking Kardis can be done easily if you run in an arc while dropping consecrate, come back across it as you pick them up and Holy Wrath them to stun them all, letting the ranged AoE them down quickly.

Fallen Protectors [HC]:We found out that the most dmg incoming is from Sha Sear and not clamacy so i thought i might interrupt her. Just set her on focus. You have to make her to your focus everytime she use Dark Meditation. I made a macro for Avenger's Shield to interrupt Sun when he cast "Sha Sear"

#showtooltip Avenger's Shield
/cast [@focus] Avenger's Shield

 In my opinion the easiest Boss on heroic after Galakras

 

Garrosh: Use "Sacred Shield", even if you have T16 4P Bonus. I got a lot of healing aggro from "Eternal Flame" because of the amount of vengance in this fight (~60-80% vengance) espacially if you solo Tank him. Use Glyph of Holy Wrath if you 2Tank this for kiting adds.

Interrupting Sha Sear makes her change targets and recast, It's best to let it cast so that it doesnt recast onto a clump of people and do even more damage. That's especially true on 25man. Interrupting Sha Sear is best used for people who aren't paying attention and wont move it out of the raid.

As for Sacred Shield vs Eternal Flame on Garrosh, if you don't intend to tank any of the adds and don't want threat, its best to remove Righteous Fury when empowered swirls happen, so that the raid can deal with them, then you can reapply Righteous Fury for future ysaarj rooms or attempts. Eternal Flame will be a more valuable healing ability in comparison to Sacred Shield, especially when you're taking frequent and fast melee swings and dot ticks.

Solo Tanking + Light's Hammer

 

Thok:

Cast Light's Hammer on the stacked raid, this provides a powerful AoE HoT.

This helps to stall until blood frenzy and can help greatly when the healers are struggling with the interrupts.

 

Garrosh:

Phase 1, Light's Hammer on the stack when there are adds+desecrate, this provides great raid healing and aoe damage.

Transition Phase, Light's Hammer centred on Garrosh, most players should be near Garrosh so it should be effective.

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/d3Qbkf6nqpoP4bxQ9YB2m
      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit

      Hi, several players told me, that my warrior is not having enough HP as he should with current item level.
      Here is the link to armory
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/burning-legion/wienkszy

      How can I push my HP higher, is there any way I can increase it ?  Trinkets, relics, items. Am I  missing something ?

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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 or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
      Violentnacho
