Protection Paladin, Spike Damage

Recommended Posts

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.

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

      Been playing as 29/11/0 so far, extra crit heals is obviously good for keeping my team alive.
       
      However, I never go OOM, so I want to get some more burst damage. What is the best way to make a hybrid paladin? 
      Holy shock with spell power? I want to do burst damage when my heals get interrupted, so holy shock might be bad.
       
      7 Prot is the bare minimum for me, Imp Freedom is so strong.
      18 Prot is also very strong, extra stuns together with grenades is powerful for BGs.
      25 Prot for reckoning might be the best burst damage available, you could even heal with a 2hander. But this requires alot of investment and SETUP.
       
      How good is SoC for a 1hander? Spell power gear? Maybe using Thrash Blade to do melee damage while healing geared.
       
      What kind of gear? Spell power or strength?

      <Fun is for Casuals> is a serious but casual horde guild on US-Hyjal. We are serious about raiding without the intense hours. Even when recruitment status is none, we will accept exceptional applications for all classes. For a full list of what we're looking for check out https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com . 
      Our raid times are Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00PM to 8:00PM server (PST) with raid invitations sent out a few minutes prior to that.

      We're interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      Raid attendance is essential. We don't want people sitting on the bench but we also want to make sure we're raiding 6 hours per week. We expect you to be available for at least 90% of our raids. Be on time and prepared for raids. This includes flasks and other consumables. Discord is mandatory and a working mic is desired. You're appropriately geared for our current content. Effort and thought have been put into your gear/gem/enchant choices. You wouldn't show up for a job interview looking like a scrub, why would you apply to a guild with improper gems or some insane spec? You're up to date with your class. We expect our raiders to perform to the best of their abilities. You have a computer that's not run with hamster power or requires a hand crank. Some encounters are taxing on a computer's resources so if your toon can't even handle Orgrimmar it's not likely to do well with 20+ whelps that need AOE'ing.
      You may be interested in us because:
      <Fun is for Casuals> uses the personal loot system. There is no loot council, or DKP. We won't eat your babies the first time you stand in something you have no business being in. Repeatedly do it and we'll break out the bibs and BBQ sauce. We provide a limited amount of consumables and flasks on hard mode raid nights. Discord isn't a circus during raids. We're focused on the job at hand and you should be too. We don't want someone to miss a an interrupt because they were distracted by fart jokes. We are not interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      You roll on BoE items then sell them. Unwilling/unable to spend an entire evening on one boss during progression. While this is rare, it can happen. Drama queens. If you have a problem bring it up to E. This is his job. Don't announce it in guild chat or during a raid. Your issue will have nothing to do with 99% of the guild. You are 17 or younger. We try to keep guild and discord chat PG-13 but occasionally a few four letter words appear out of nowhere. Additionally, we don't want someone's mom interrupting their raiding to get homework or the dishes done. Follow the instructions at https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com/ under the Recruitment tab if you would like to apply.
      If you have any question, feel free to contact E. at DbD#1309

      Hey all,
       
      Not new to hearthstone but haven't been playing constantly and just jumping back in towards the end of July.  I am not sure if there's a better name or configuration for this yet but I've had some good luck with it so far.  If nothing else it's just really fun to play for me.  
      This deck has no duplicates to take advantage of Zephyrs the Great and Sir. Finley of the Sand.
       
      Never posted a deck before so not sure if this is how of the place but feel free to give me constructive feedback.
