Why is everyone taking Divine Strength? None of our gear has Strength in it, I was lead to beleave that strength was a useless talent for prot pallies?

Actually when you log into 3.0 your gear will most likely have quite a bit of strength on it due to the gear changes. We now get 1 block value per 2 strength.

I noted that no one is putting points into Benediction.

Any particular reason why?

From my experience on the PTR mana isn't really an issue, especially with the changes to BoSanc and Guarded by the Light.

After researching what other people are doing (and because my realm isn't up and functioning yet), here's my build:

http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?talent=smZ0xVAcuMtfIoGoxo

Is seals of the pure really that bad? My guild isn't raiding anymore, so I'd only be tanking heroics, maybe ZA with this build. I figure seals of the pure would help with questing and stuff. I don't really need AD for heroics/questing.

Read the patch notes. Strength WAS useless, but not anymore since our abilities now scale with attack power and because of the new strength -> block value conversion. Most of what you know about prot pallies is different now.

Was there ever a definitive answer whether or not templar has a hidden 1/2/3% damage reduction? I'm downloading the patch now, and trying to figure out whether or not it is going to be worth taking at 70.

No DR as of right now. Expect to have that function by wotlk launch.

$50 bucks says no, but I think Fridmarr already confirmed in another thread that the answer is tough tooties for us (ie: no).

Illidan is still not even on the realm list even :(

We'll be damn lucky if it comes out before WotLK ships.

Well, for lvl 70 I plan on using :
http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?paladin=500300000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000050053500313251533312021

Once 80 comes out I will probably end up with something very close to:
http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?paladin=520302300000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000050053500313251533312321

Happy patch day to all the EU chaps.

I've been considering my L70 build for awhile now, but this is what I think I've settled on:

http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?paladin ... 1533312021

The no Kings is a slight issue since we don't really have any Ret Paladins to take it. Most of the time the groups I'm in want Wisdom or Salv anyway. I used to use it on myself but obviously Sanctuary is going to be my own personal blessing of choice.

For level 80 we're probably looking at something along these lines:

http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?paladin ... 1533312321

If they apply the damage reduction prior to me getting Shield of the Templar naturally, then I'll respec and fit it in.

Alternatively I might swap out SoP and take Benediction instead. I'm just going to play around and not get too hung up on stuff. If I don't like it, I can just respec.
