DING! Level 40!!! (actually I got to 41 before I got around to posting this, but you get the idea)

Plate armor, summon charger, and HOLY SHIELD goodness.

I am easily taking on 4-5 mobs at a time now and end the fight over 80% on both mana and HP.

Being able to kill the 10 mobs I need for that annoying kill quest in 2 big pulls is so nice.

I really can't wait to get to Outlans so I can tank some Ramparts and Blood Furnace.

So I finally got around to running a Heroic Magister's Terrace.

All in all, the run was pretty crappy. We wiped once on the big arcane boss guy. We wiped 4 times on the 5-mob bosses. We wiped 3 times on Kael himself.

However, I managed to pick up the Commendation trinket, as well as picking up the +12 defense to cloak enchant, so I never have to go there again. :)

EDIT: Had to roll against a retarded Holy Pally to win that trinket too, was worried when I rolled a 30 but then he rolled a 24.

In all honesty, I was ready to ninja it (they run with FFA loot for some reason) if I lost, cause damnit, I'm the tank, it's a tanking trinket.

I'll give a short overview of what the last 2 weeks has been like for my Pally.

On Tuesday of last week 2.4 was opened and naturally after Kara 5 of us went into the new 5man. At around the time of the 2nd boss our server crashed. When the server reset, so did the instance.. so we called it a night as it was getting late.

The next day we went in again. At about the time of the 3rd boss the server crashed yet again. The instance, was as well reset. And thus, with it being late, we called it a night once again.

The next time we ran it which was Saturday night we had all melee DPS, pally healer, and myself. Needless to say, considering it was new and our DPS wasn't well geared, we didn't get to kill Kael.

This week - Tuesday. We try this again, still on normal, we make our way to the last boss, Kael. At close to midnight, my internet connection goes out... Call it a night..

2 days later, I have 2 hours before I have to leave for some dinner plans. Someone in guild asks me to tank MaTe before I have to go. I promptly reply with a yes. Then the server crashes..........

At this point it's a joke that me + MaTe = INTERWEBZ OF DOOM

Last night we had ZA, and a few didn't show, so we called it. And, as me being MT for our raids who isn't keyed for heroic MaTe yet, we decided to run it. Went through normal without a flaw, took about an hour. Setup heroic. Ran through with pally healer, priest healer, rogue, lock and me. Everything went smoothly until the 3rd boss. Too much healy, not enough CC. So after 4-5 tries the priest drops and gets his mage. Still a little too much healy, not enough CC, everyone decides to call it a night. The pally wants one more go with it, but says he'll drop his pally for his mage. We give it another shot with, oh yes ladies and gents - me as the only healer. We ended with everyone at sub-par life, me with 24 mana left and.... THIS

Payback for all the probs with that place.

Dinged 60 on my paladin, having trouble deciding specs of course =/

Prot
- I love to tank, be in control of the group tempo
- AOE grinding certain quests with a healer is super fun
- PVE my favorite thing to do is tank for sure

Holy
- I would love to be a kick *** PVP healer
- Never spec'd it in my life though
- Thinking about it, but probably wait until 70

Ret
- Honestly lots of fun questing
- I miss the group portions though
- I did some PVP leveling ret 30-50ish, fun stuff


End game, OMG I don't know. I think I'll PVE tank which is awesome fun. And PVP heal and get serious about holy arena. Worried I'll be good at PVE healing too. Guild pressures me into PVE healing, all of a sudden I blow my tier tokens on healing set, I get replaced as a tank and bam, I'm a healer. Seen it happen before, easy to slip into that mode. All it takes is a day where you're late for kara, in holy spec, they don't need a tank and bam you can heal. You do a good job, pats on the back, handed some holy gear and guild asks you to stay that way.

Also not looking forward to constant respecs. I'm not just talking the once a week 10 games a week thing. Thats not for me, I like to arena 3-5x a week running battlegrounds in between. Respecs are absolutely going to kill me with my playstyle of heavy PVP + PVE. Sigh, I could very well end up a healer at 70 =/

Maybe I should just quest as ret till 70. Who knows. Staying prot for the time being, stay tuned for more another day...

Last night I ran Gruul's for the first time, it was just like the old 40man days - loved it. I got to replace my BLUE shoulders with Tier 4 shoulders!

After Gruul's I had 98 badges! So some guildies and I ran Heroic Ramps, got my last 2 tokens and I got to replace the LAST blue I had with the Chestplate of Stoicism!

Because of all the extra avoidance from these 2 pieces I was able to put on my Tier 4 Gloves that had been rotting in my bank as well.

One shotted Mag last night, my guild have me Ret Tanking the first warlock, and primary on cube clicking. guess thats the penelty i pay for proving myself reliable, ^^. so we have another 2 hours left in our guilds 3 hour raid window. Everyone is all hyped up because we just one shotted a 25 man.

what do we do? we go to gruuls . . . and if not for weird lag making us reset high king, we would have one shot him. and then proceeded to down Gruul on our second try.

So now our guild is pretty stoked, downed 2 25man raids in 3 hours, and we dont have anything to raid today (normally our gruul run is on wednesday). so of course the guild wants to try their hand at "Loot Reaver".

do we have a chance in ****? ive seen the fight, Void Reaver seems terribly easy to tank, its the DPS who get thier **** ruined. and what about melee DPS, isnt there a PBAOE that he spams the whole fight? too many questions. . .

oh yeah, point of the post, 2 25mans in under 3 hours! woot!

I've not tanked Loot Reaver yet, I previously raided with my holy priestess. But raiders said it was hard to tank, as it seems to switch its target among several tanks, and sometimes switching to a melee dps (chaman most of the time ^^). So hunters helped tanks for aggro.

I've found a guild needing a tankadin, and definitively swaped from my main priestess to my glorious protection paladin... Raid content shows me my limits, new things to learn, heroïcs are quite different environment ^^.

But I knew it would come one day... I love that character ^^

oh... and now that it's no more a reroll, I have a fun stuff, all great epics, with t5 gloves and... t3.5 shoulders!!! You can laugh ^^

Doesn't "seem" to, that's how the fight is designed: you NEED multiple tanks fighting to outaggro everyone else. It is tough for a Paladin to off tank unless you have a very high amount of spell damage, lots of mana pots, and a Shaman and/or Shadow Priest. You will need to spam the **** out of Consecration, Judgement, and Avenger's Shield every cooldown, and when he knocks you back (reducing your threat, this is where he changes tanks) pop your wings to get back on top.

Just want to first say my guild got their second Illidan kill tonight ^^ Had their first kill last week, but I wasn't home to listen in (obviously I'm not geared enough yet for end BT). Tonight I was, and even not being able to see what was going on, it was incredible. The level of excitement was so high, probably cause they had to throw basically all strategy out the window at the very end and just frantically burn him down as key people had died :) Anyway, gratz guys!

So, the point of posting: we also went back into Hyjal. Previously I had seen Rage and Anetheron and that's it, but I got to be in for Kaz and Azgalor as well! Was pumped, and came away with Girdle of Hope and more importantly from the trash Hammer of Judgement!!!

God I love fighting Hyjal trash.

Well im not sure if this is an Accomplishment or not, but thought i would share my adventure in KARA.

Doing our normal guild kara run, which consists of Attunman, Moroes, Maiden and Opera event. We can't down curator yet :(

Anyways, we ready to start Attuneman and Bam our Warrior MT disconnects, of course he had already engaged the horse, Im the OT most of the time. Well I grab horse and proceed to spam out just keep me alive I will tank BOTH. Which I did do successfully. Never got below 5k health.

I haven't heard of anybody doing it this way. Actually seemed easier to me, but then again i just stand there and block and hope the healers keep me alive.

Paladin tanking both isn't uncommon, grats on it though.

Some paladins after reaching a certain gear level tank all of the mobs on Moroes at once too. Gouge is usually removed instantly by someone else smacking you.

I am quite proud to say I tanked heroic mech with me (prot pally) one retri pally, one holy pally, one enhancement shaman and a rogue, so thats 1 CC and all melee dps and nothing went wrong! Was tanking 4 in the tunnel with no problems.

This has set in motion the idea of the "all pally run", sometime soon we're doing Heroic SP with me, 2 retri pallys, a holy pally and a shockadin, should be fun!

Well, last week our guild decided to try something new after months,months and months of Karazhan and Gruul's lair (had only got HKM down so far, several times tho.)
So, we went in to SSC and got Lurker down in our 3rd try.
A couple days after that we went to see Maggy, got him down in our 3rd attempt also.
And the day after that, we finally got Gruul down, which we have tried for so long.
So it was a progressful week for us, hoping to get those ones down again soon.

So, I've decided to try and make myself more prominent in my fairly new guild and advance my rank. To do that, and get any real playtime in (since there are 2 other Prot Paladins ahead of me in the "pecking order"), I reluctantly agreed to spec Holy when going to BT. I'll still tank in Hyjal though, YAY! Anyway, went into BT for the first time, and since I've never been Holy before, I was quite nervous. My gear, as you can tell from my Armory, isn't all that great: the scraps I've picked up from Kara mostly, but I think I did a pretty decent job at healing. No one died that was under my watch except on the Shade of Akama when WoW crashed >.< The raid still managed to get the kill, but our Druid tank, having lost one of his healers, went down.

All in all was great to finally see 3 bosses in BT, and I came away with a shiny new shield: Felstone Bulwark!

And I still am expected to bid on tanking gear even while Holy, so I'm pretty excited. Finally starting to get out of this "gear rut" I've been in!

Ding level 70 last night!!!

I put on all the gear I had purchased/had crafted:

Felsteel Gloves
Felsteel Helm
Felsteel Leggings
Crystalforged Sword
Bracers of the Green Fortress

and I was a fresh 70 pally tank that had 490 def, 88% avoidance, and 11.7k HP.

Time to start grinding some instances now baby!!!!

Edit: Just did all the prequests to the Arc Key quest so hopefully I can get that done today and get my Sha'tari Vindicator's Waistguard today.

Small potatoes compared to what a lot of you are up to, but big for us is that we're finally making good progress through Kara. After weeks of spending all kinds of time just trying to down Moroes, our last two runs have seen us handle him easily. We've also downed Curator for the first time; last night we were able to work up through Chess for the first time. No good loot for me this week, but last week's haul included the Libram from Romulo and the Maiden's Mace.

One thing I find interesting is that when we first started, we were using three healers. On last week's run we went with two, me and a druid, and did much better with only two. Our second healer DC'd after Curator last night, and I got to solo heal a fair amount between Curator and Shade. That was a bit of a challenge!

I snagged the shield from ZA finally, and am now sufficiently geared to go AFK while soloing Garr. :) The auto-boot-offline feature doesn't kick in if you're autoattacking a mob. The fight took quite a bit longer (2:20 instead of my usual 1:40. That's hours and minutes by the way) but that's no big deal because I also managed to vacuum my house, clean my kitchen, do laundry, and sort a bunch of old paperwork all at the same time! :)

Well, I feel slightly betrayed. I was told that I would be used to tank in Hyjal runs, but would be asked to heal in BT runs. Fine, if it means getting more raid time, I'll heal in BT (which I absolutely HATE doing ...). That's the way it's been till Thursday. I was asked to go healy for Hyjal: WTF??? Anyway, I did as I was asked, hearthed out (cause I had logged the night before at the CoT), respecced, and went to Hyjal as a Healbot. Although I absolutely hated it with a blinding passion, it did pay off:

Blessed Adamantite Bracers
and my first Tier 6
Lightbringer Handguards

Still didn't get to see Archie, but I think the guild leaders are gaining more confidence in me each raid, so hopefully soon I'll get to kill a big ugly Man'ari Eeredar!

Last night was good to my prot. pally.

I was questing on my lvl. 40 warlock when someone in my guild was looking for a tank for the last boss of hero MgT. So I said what the **** I can help he has been trying to get the lock chest for about 2 weeks now. I log on to my tank get summons to the boss buff up and go to it. We wipe twice but 3rd time is the charm we down him I die twice during the fight (druid healer battle rez) at the end I am face down in the dirt but the loot and to my suprise this drops http://wow.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?witem=34611

I like my CFS but really wanted a epic weapon I was going to PvP my *** off when the S2 mace could be bought with honor but I am not a big fan of PvP and it really sucks with a pally tank. I was really happy to get the new mace plus I also got http://wow.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?witem=34615 if I ever want to respec to ret.

All in all the 20g repair bill and the 15 min. of time was well worth it.

This baby's mine. Ready to start tanking heroic SP, UB, and maybe Ramps or Mech now. Also gonna try and tank the first 4 bosses in Kara Thursday and may even do Curator if our DPS is good enough.

Gonna keep grinding Shattered Halls and normal Mech until I get my trinket and breastplate to drop, and have the Sha'tar rep for my shield.

Thank you guys for answering all of my pointless questions while I was leveling up and such.

Gratz. Quick question though- how close are you to SSO exalted? My guild's pally tank just grabbed one of the new shields from Quel'danas and it's such an incredible improvement. Losie has done a comparison of them a couple times now and I think the conventional wisdom is now reaching a consensus that the Sha'tar rep shield is more or less obsolete.

I have no SSO rep.

Also, I don't like either of the SSO shields.

People may have cruched numbers and found them to be better, but I personally don't care for them. Both of them have a lot of wasted itemization points and I'll be happy with Crest of the Sha'tar until I can get the shield from Nightbane (which is a long way off).

Granted when I get a few gear upgrades from Kara and/or badges, the SSO shields may become more attractive to me, but for now neither really works in my gear set.

Did Kara for the first time on my Pally.

I was the MT for Attumen and Moroes, but put myself on cleansing duty for Maiden and let our warrior tank her. We also did Opera and drew Wizard of Oz. I managed to tank Tito, Strawman, and Roar, while the warrior kited Tinman around.

Got myself the belt from Moroes and the helm from Opera, and lost the roll on Moroes' trinket to the warrior.

Can't wait to go in and finish it up. I'll probably end up bringing my healing gear and helping out with healing on the rest of the bosses while the warrior tanks them, since I don't think 12.7K HP unbuffed is enough for any of the encounters except maybe Netherspite, since being in the green beam gives you like 20k HP anyway.

That trinket is the most **** trinket ever. It can crit, and when I'm farming BRD for shards, I can just pull a whole room, and when I'm at 30% health, pop trinket and just watch my health fly back up. Get 20-30-40 low lvl mobs hitting on you with that trinket equiped, and you can survive anything :)

I just tanked Magtheridon as my first real boss in 25-raid, successfully.
Reached 20k life points buffed.
Always thought mitigation was 1st goal, but in raid the life pool really shines, now I have seen it by myself.
Yet there are still a few players in that raid taunting me about being a palatank, and it really is annoying but I don't see anything I could do about that, as other tanks don't do better than me but are more trusted (when they die healers are blamed, don't know why).
I upped my mitigation too by changing that terrible new insigna palatank (mageladin?) chest for the generic def one which allowed me to equip the fairmoon trinket.

Took our first visit in Tempest Keep a few days ago, took a while to kill the trash but finally we got to Solarian.

It wasn't a bad run, even though we only got her to around 60% with 3 attempts, but I like to think that at least we're learning something new if nothing else.
Always died because someone with the bomb (called astromancer's wrath or something like that) didn't run away.
Well anyways, I'm not blaming anyone for it, it was a fun run and our guild discovered a new boss.

LOL - I don't post much here, but I was going to post the same thing.

My guild has downed RoS before, but we have lost a few ppl once we wiped on Illidian for a week. **** quitters!

I used to be a Meatshield on P1 and the healing in P2 and P3 while a warrior did his thing. Then last week the leaders suggested that I take a shot at it. This was my FIRST time ever tanking a 25 man boss. I've done lots of trash, but yeah, it's different.

Sadly we did not kill him but got to single digits quite a few times.

I think I did everything I could to build threat. Wings, max rank consecrate, judge Crusader, warlocks freak me out when they race up the charts and then thankfully drop back. The most nerve racking 2 minutes of my life.

But everyone said that pally tank on Phase 3 was the way to go vs. warrior tank. smoother and easier to heal. If only I had 2 pieces of T6 for the +spiritual attunement buff.

/sigh I'm sure we'll get him (again) tonight.

This past weekend I got to finally tank me some murlocs for Tidewalker AND after all this time got to MT Prince instead of trying to melee or off-heal (I suck at both!).

Even got the Netherspite shoulders.

Great weekend and I can attribute a lot of that success to the fine people on these forums. Not to sound cheesy but couldn't have done it without y'all!

I love this thread! Everyone's being supportive and NICE to one another. It's great!

I'm a first-time 44 Paladin (first time I've ever had a character over 40), spec'd primarily Ret right now, with some Holy and a little bit Prot. I'm undergeared however... Can't find a good 1h sword... stuck with Vanquisher's Sword with a Fiery enchant on it. I want something with better DPS potential without sacrificing my shield.

Any hope for me?

Vanquishers Sword is still pretty good at 44, especially with a Feiry enchant on it. If you really want to make it last a bit longer, grab some Dense Sharpening stones. +8 damage on a bladed weapon, and given it's 2.2 attack speed, you're adding almost 4 DPS to the weapon.

In keeping with the theme, on my BE pally, 38 atm, I was jumped by a +2 rare, it's 2 adds, and 3 regular mobs all +1 that were in the area. It took a while, and I needed all my abilities, but in the end, I was standing and they weren't. I lol'd in my gchat, and everyone began talking about how OP Pallies are in PvE. :)

I can almost make my own Dense Sharpening Stones. That +8dmg weapon damage should help quite a bit. I've never quite understood how that works though.. is it +8 to the top end damage? Bottom end? Both?

It raises it's weapon damage range by the applicable amount. Instead of being 46-86, it's now effectively 54-94, which makes it 33.6 DPS instead of 30.0

Dinged 70 about a month ago and started working on instance-dropped and quested gear. Started out with the crafted basics and went from there.

4 days of playtime later... I got to OT Kara picking up Maiden's hands (passing on the neckpiece for the maintank) and feet from Chess. Due to a bad misdirect, I tanked both Attumen and Midnight at the same time and did great; never dropped much below 10k. I was able to tank Moroes and 2 of his guests at the same time which was a lot of fun. I also got enough badges for my Libram which put me over into uncrushable territory.

Exalted w/ SSO, picked up shield and made my tank Alchemist's stone.

Co-tanked the first two bosses in ZA which dropped crap. The MT died on Akil'zon around 50% and I was able to take over and tank him down the rest of the way. Nakk was cake, tanking on bear form while the warrior took human form.

Kael's mace dropped from Heroic Mgt last night which got gemmed and enchanted this morning for even more tanking goodness.

Life is good.

Awesome. Maara, thank you very much for your info. :) I'll keep it in mind as I keep on my grind toward 70!
