10 Awesome Paladin Tricks

Completely contradicting my “One Trick Pony” post. Here’s a list of 10 Awesome Paladin Tricks.

Pally taunt is the bomb!
Your bubble will remove curses and magical effects. Use it to get out of sheep/fear/garrot.
With careful macro-ing, even tanks can bubble to remove curse/garrot/fear without fear of losing aggro.

Purple Judgement

When I built my “List of Paladin Healing Gear” it never occured to me that the pre-kara list was actually the same as the “Purple Judgement” set. I’m miffed that it’s not a “real” set as in, it has no set bonus.. but it is very lovely. I’ve currently (12/3/2007) got half the [...]

Are Paladins Good?

Are Paladins naturally good? The last post “Are Warlocks Evil?” got a surprising amount of response (yes, 7 is surprising). The general concensus seems to lie between “warlocks are evil” and “players play warlocks as evil”. So.. as the class opposite (and yes, if there were a wheel of classes I’d put warlocks on the opposite side from paladins), are Paladins naturally good?

Fire Resist Set

*sigh* I don’t want to get fireballed to death at the end of Heroic Ramparts. Must get fire resist set. Full resist (75% damage reduction) would be 365 fire resist.

The time in between

In combat:

GO:
Seal of Whatever (probably Righteous if the mob’s going to die quickly)
Judgement (starts 8 second cool down)
Holy Shock (starts 15 second cool down)
Seal of Righteousness.
If it’s a demon, Exorcism (starts 15 second cool down)
***Wait 6 seconds
Judgement (starts 8 second cool down)
Seal of Righteousness.
***Wait 8 seconds
Repeat from GO:

I’m looking at the wait time.. there’s 6 seconds.. [...]

Lovin’ for the Ret

So Blizzard is updating Fanaticism so that the threat reduction is only active when Righteous Fury is -not- up… Yeah for all those Ret tanks.

I wonder if that means that if you’re Ret.. and your Righteous Fury drops in the middle of the fight.. I guess you spiral wildly down the [...]

‘Cause BigRedKitty said

Quoth BigRedKitty:
Paladins are the cockroaches of the warcraft universe. They can survive just about anything and, although they’re unpleasant to look at, aren’t that much of a threat. Paladins don’t kill us, it’s more like they wear us out and smack us down after we cry No Mas.

I think I’m going to take that as a [...]

So.. what’s still “broken”?

With the announced changes in 2.3, a lot of Paladin concerns are being addressed. But what’s still not working?

+hit and +spell hit

I wanted to write about adding +hit and +spell hit when trying to do DPS.. but I find that Coriel has been there before me.

Blue in Paladin Forum

… and I’m about to cry from the overwhelming feeling.

They’re talking to us… and they’re saying nice things.

From Drysc wrt 2.3:
– 1/3 of +healling will be counted as +spell.
… it’s about a third. So 1500 +heal would give about +500 +spell damage.
– [6 second cooldown on Crusader Strike]
– we’re putting the benefits of [...]
