Protection Paladin, Spike Damage

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

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!

      As the title suggests - I think it's time that we discuss our Beacon(s) and their place in the current 'meta'.
      Most of you will probably not agree with me but I feel like there's a very limited impact to beacon currently. When Legion was first announced I was thrilled at the prospect of tanks losing the 'I am a wall of iron....' and becoming more dependent on their healers again. And I say this despite playing a Guardian Druid for most of WoD with raiding Mythic throughout the expansion.
      Once more it was going to be down to your healers to keep you level and you would focus primarily on smoothing out the damage intake while still picking up adds, tank swaps, controlling pace, positioning etc. (the list goes on and on obviously!). Healing yourself was no longer to be your responsibility!
      Currently it feels like we've moved too far away from that again. Now this - of course, being an issue not only for paladins but an overall issue with the current state of tanking.
      But I digress.... The reason why I feel Beacon needs to be reworked slightly is because currently beacon is having a very minor effective healing vs the overhealing it 'provides'. I've heard several arguments for this. Some feel that 'it is free overhealing so why should we care?' but I lean to the side of: What is the point of having a spell, which is undoubtedly one of our core abilities, that have such a low impact?
      I feel like some tuning is in order for it. Maybe rework what it actually does? Tuning overall healing throughput of tanks?
      Rework our mastery to be more interactive with throughput in relation to beacons?
      I can't really offer any substantial solutions to the problem but I still feel that it is, in fact, a problem.
      What are your thoughts on this? Has Blizzard dug themselves into a hole again with the current state of tanking or could a rework of the Beacon sort the issue so that it feels that Holy Paladins are once more the Go-To 'Tank Healer' with a more impactful kit?
