    Default 58 Paladin tanking spec

    58 Paladin / 18 Void Knight / 0 Warlord

    First off, I want to thank my guild leader Truthh for providing me with this great tanking spec. It's a great build, has a simple rotation, and has good survivability. Being somewhat of a hybrid spec, this build gives added endurance and armor boosts than a 61/15 build.

    BUFFS:

    Accord of Resilience
    Void
    Shield of the Chosen
    Shield of the Hero



    MACROS

    ::spam::
    #show Light's Decree
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Light's Decree
    cast Light's Reprisal
    cast Light's Vengeance
    cast Retaliation
    cast Spellbreaker
    cast Aegis of the Light
    cast Pacifying Strike

    ::AE::
    #show Tempest
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Tempest
    cast Sweeping Strike



    THE ROTATION:

    Use Righteous Charge to begin the fight (and disconnects)
    If there are adds, mash the "AE" macro a few times to generate threat
    Mash "SPAM" macro, using Light's Benediction whenever you have 3 Combo Points

    Hotkey 7: Life's Rapture - Use if healer is having trouble keeping everyone topped off
    Hotkey 8: Interfere - single-target taunt
    Hotkey 9: Judgement - AE taunt
    Hotkey 0: Shield Defense - 35% damage reduction for 10s
    Hotkey -: Light's Protection - incoming heals increased by 15% for 12s

    For poops and giggles, here's my gear and stats

    Sorry but...this is way inferior to 61/15. Also /shudder at those macros. Horribly inefficient.

    this isnt worth using over a 61pt tank build at all

    this build has the same amount of endurance as 61pal/15vk and less overall mitigation (5% less damage taken + 5% healing taken > 6% armor), and overall less mitigation (again, protectors fury > 1% armor) than 61pal 15reaver

    Somebody can't deal with only having sweeping strikes and needs tempest. Whether it's you, your guild master, or other warriors that your guild master talks to... I dunno. But that's what I'm getting from your post.
    Burst before or after Rift implosion, never both.

    On another note, sergeant's order should be mentioned as a pull, can help with positioning on some fights

    Agreed, No need to be harsh. Simply tell him why it's inefficient and move on.
    That being said, the 61 point ability in Paladin is greater than the 3 extra points in VK, Reason being: Incoming healing received by 5%, damage reduced by 5% and light damage increased by 25%.

    Correct me if im wrong RR, But i think this was an OLD Pally spec after SL was released when the 61 point was awful? Maybe OP's guild leader is a bit out-dated >.>

    Honestly...I can't remember :-P. It's a possibility.

    Actually, yeah, yeah it was. I forgot about that option of simply massively outdated information.

    Ugh, now I remember needing to apply pacifying and light's benediction to every mob making EC first room almost guaranteed death, so swapping from 58paly to 61 vk for those pulls...

    I think the build you have would be better with 58pally/18 warchanter/0 Vk. This will give you awesome heals and allow you to easily speed through spe's with little to no healing. I ran this for quite a while all the way up to td then needed lvl 61 legendary for legendary hit protection.

    To be fair, you bumped a topic from 2014 before warchanter existed.

    Is this spec that out of date?

    Extremely. Rough Raptor's tank guides are up to date though.
