What NOT to get in 3.0?

Postby econ21 » Tue Oct 14, 2008 5:44 am

With shield of the templar presumably going to have the 3% damage reduction built in, I find I am now two points over-budget for the talents I would like to take in 3.0 at level 70:

Any ideas what to drop?

Guarded by the light looks the most dispensable now - I never took spell warding before and mana is apparently less of an issue for us - but that only frees up 2/3 points.

Improved judgement is a lonely point, but apparently helps the optimal rotation and can have a big effect on threat.

I am loathe to reduce kings or improved devotion, as they seem the kind of thing that if they are worth doing, they are worth doing well. If you are going to buff your raid, you may as well do your best. Plus I can see them as defensive talents that may keep me alive against a tough boss.

I may end up dropping the last point of another multi-point layered talent, but which one? Which do people think is the most dispensable?

If it helps any, I am a badge/Kara geared tankadin whose current progress is trying to main tank the Hex Lord in ZA.

In your build, dropping Guarded by the light = lvl 70 spec

:oops:

Thanks - well, now I don't know whether to feel good for not having a problem or bad for starting a really dumb thread. I'm going with the positive.

Eh, you'd be impressed by how much people miss otherwise obvious things. Ever searched for the remote that was in your hands all the time?

Ummm, actually, you wanna pick up that other point in Touched by the Light...

I would recommend dropping a point in Improved Devotion Aura... I know it's gonna suck, but it's better than dropping alot of those other much desired talents.

True true. I didn't notice he wasn't triple touched, just double touched.

^^ What he said. Same build here except I will go 3/3 imp HoJ instead of Reckoning being on a pvp server.

They can at 70. At 80, ret talents > prot talents for holy.

True, but at 80 then ret paladins pick up kings and Holy paladins have the Imp Might.

The irony in that is delicious because it is true.

Thanks - I just noticed that; my dilemma was not imaginary. Sorry for the bad talent build posted.

However, with the 3% DR not being included in shield of the templar, I think it can wait till wotlk. So this is the build I will go with:
