Protection Paladin 6.2

Recommended Posts

Shame the guide isn't being updated at all. Had the topic on my watchlist for a few months now; nothing. I'd do it for free if I could.

 

I'm sorry you feel that way. Could you be more specific about what parts of the guide should be updated? It does receive updates, as frequently as it seems needed (stat priority was updated not long ago, for example). Thank you!

Don't know if it is in the works, but the rotation portion of the guide still makes reference to Seal of Truth which is no longer available to protection paladins.

The current prot guide recommends ElvUI as an overall UI replacement mod.  I first tried ElvUI before the news broke about the backdoor; when the backdoor was revealed,  I dropped it.

 

I miss ElvUI a lot, it was an awesome mod, I know the issue was fixed, but I refuse to have anything on my system where the devs so blatantly leave such a hole in their programming (either maliciously or not).  I'm NOT trying to start an argument about the backdoor issue -- I just want to know if you can recommend good alternatives to ElvUI for us Prot Pallies.  Anyone?  Please?

Please update the guide, some things are out of date and need to be checked, such as Seraphim does not increase stats by 1000 anymore but rather 750, the guide overall is excellent.

This guide is great at the start of an expansion. However it is largely ignored as things change with patches.  Being the leading resource for stat priorities and rotation suggestions, I would think u guys would take some pride in your website. At this point it is worthless to me....

A second question - I googled it but didn't find a satisfying answer - is there a way to make a macro so the player with the lowest health is tareted with my holy prism? Would it also be possible to target the player with the highest threat, besides the tanks?

I like to use holy prism a lot to generate threat when several adds are involved.

 

Thanks in avance for your answer.

Cheers

Hello,

@ Guest Telataur

 

TL;DR 

you can't make a macro for auto-targeting people following specific criteria (health, threat, etc.). Make a mouseover macro

 

 

about your second question, simply wanted to say that you'll never find a macro of this kind. It would make a decision for you, which is against what WoW devs wants, so they locked that kind of options. BUT, that being said, you could make a macro for "mouseover". I don't have any from top of my head but those are easily found. Hope you found something suiting your needs

''This guide has been reviewed and approved by Slootbag, one of the best Protection Paladins in the world'' Is that a joke lol? There are many, many better prots out there with way higher item level, that paladin has very crappy stats balance.

Thanks for pointing this out, removing the mention now.

I'd just like to point out that item level is hardly the most important part, especially when we are talking about players raiding in top of the line progression guilds where switching between characters all the time is important.

On Protection Paladin Singe Target Priority List, there is a link to old version of "Sanctified Wrath". The link lists a version of "Sactified Wrath" which changes the effect of "Avenging Wrath" and "Avenging Wrath" isn't available to Protection Paladins any more.

Just wanted some clarity, is Versatility actually supposed to be sixth in priority? Other sources show it as being second to Bonus Armor. Please confirm.

Trying to figure out why the description says 4 pc t18 isnt worth getting and why it says that BRF trinkets are BIS options when there are far better options from HFC.

I have a macro you need to add to macros for using empowered seals making cycling easier.

Macro is as follows-

#showtooltip

/castsequence reset=6 judgement, seal of righteousness, judgement, seal of insight

-End macro

Hope to see this put into the guide I feel it will help new paladin tanks thank you!

Hey Vlad,

 

sorry for the late response!

 

I had listed specific suggestions for updates in a post I made on page 2 of this thread; the lack of response to it is what prompted the frustrated second post.

 

Thanks for your work on the site!

Heya,

 

I've been watching this guide for a long time now, and it's been quite useful to me.
One thing I've been using a lot, was the macro for the bubble and cancelling that. As I've been prot during Throne of Thunder and Siege of Orgrimmar, it's been SO useful countles times. I've stepped away from prot in WoD, so I didn't have any real use for it anymore. Since a few months I've been back to prot and my guild is doing well. But I've started to notice people are "randomly" dying around me whenever I bubbled to clear off whatever caused me to use it. And it seems the macro isn't working anymore.

I've tripple checked how it was written, I've even made a new one, directly copy/pasting it from the guide again, but without success.

The bubble itself is cast, that's not the problem. Cancelling the aura, for whatever reason, isn't cancelling anymore. I have to manually remove the buff in order to get rid of it before it expires and more people die. I'd actually rather not use it anymore as it is now. Is there any reason why it's not working anymore? Anyone have any idea? sad.png

You list only prot warriors as shield competition, but since shields also have intelect on them, Shamen and Holy pallies will also desire them, though not their BiS.

I have a macro in which i cast reckoning and divine shield so that the boss doesn't attack someone else and i can keep him attacking me, hope this helps

      Blizzard announced that the Gushing Wound Corruption Effect would get nerfed by 35% with this week's maintenance in all regions, but as for now, the nerf is still not active on live servers.
      The Gushing Wound effect has just one rank and Blizzard left the Corruption Effect untouched until now because it was hard to acquire.
      Now that MOTHER is selling all Corruption Effects on rotation, Blizzard predicts large stacking of Gushing Wound that could end up being even more powerful than Infinite Stars, so they decided to nerf the effect by 35%.
      The Corruption Effect was not on sale yet and you can find a list of all Corruption Effects currently sold by MOTHER here.
      (Source)
      We’re working on a hotfix that will reduce the damage done by the Gushing Wound Corruption Effect by 35%. We expect to make this change with maintenance in each region next week, starting on May 26.
      While we tend to only make changes like this in regular balance patch intervals, Gushing Wound is currently the most efficient of all Corruption Effects. When making changes to Corruption Effects, we previously decided to leave it as-is, because there is only one rank available and Gushing Wound is a rare and relatively difficult Corruption to acquire. However, with this week’s updates that make Corruption Effects available from MOTHER, we expect that stacking large amounts of Gushing Wound will be even more efficient than Infinite Stars, which has explicit downsides when multiple targets are present.
      We’ll have the change outlined in our Hotfixes Update soon after it goes live next week.
      If the nerf goes live later tonight, we will cover it in the hotfix update.

      Although Allied Races are last when it comes to new customization options that will be introduced in Shadowlands, silverleaf2520 came up with an interesting concept of skin and eye colors for Void Elves, Lightforged Draenei, Nightborne, and Highmountain Tauren.

      The N'Zoth and Night Warrior-themed eyes for Void Elves look cool, what do you think?

      Our preview of Shadowlands mounts continues with Jailer Hounds!
      The mount currently has a placeholder name (PH Shadehound) and in the game files it's referred to as "Jailer Hound", so maybe it will come from Torghast.
      Three tints of the mount are currently available: Black, Gray, and White.
      Black




      Gray




      White
