Tanking as a Paladin, Cataclysm Beta

Back in the old days, I had a Paladin called Hammerjudge. Creative name, eh. Actually, I had two.

First one was in Australia, then when I knew I was moving to the UK, I bought an EU kit (whilst in Australia, from shatteredcrystal), then levelled a Dranei on EU. I healed for a while whilst earning a slot in my awesome guild the Dottagers, then tanked, then WotLK was announced and I was sold on a DK, who was to become Gravity.

Anyhow, I hadn’t played a Paladin tank since L70.

I have now, on Cataclysm, and felt it would be interesting for a former serious theorycrafter maintankadin to play my old beloved class. It was fun! Pallys tanks are more refined on Beta than the DK.

I have written up my thoughts and some analysis over here the forums.

Sorry to redirect you if you’re on an RSS, it’s just a lot easier for me to write there and have you click-through.

You can use Tapatalk for our forums on mobile devices, btw.

  • Hi mate,
    Thanks for the mention about us, just thought I’d make a response to let you know I haven’t forgotten you and read your blog whenever I can.

      Heya Geggs! Hope the UK is treating you well, and the coming winter isn’t too harsh this time. Our neighbours in Oxfordshire had trouble getting off their farm with the unsealed roads and no 4×4.

      Wife and kids doing really well, loving being back home. Thanks for dropping by.

  • First time I’ve read about how all the new changes actually come together to give you choices when tanking.
    Oh, and definitely chasing Fireal to get this Tapatalk installed on our forums!  :-)

      hi matey, nice to hear from you. I just uploaded a pally tanking video onto youtube too. I really like the new tanking style, but tis definitely a priority system and not the strict rotation of Live.

      edit: I’ve also posted a guest article on WoR which editorialises my reports.
