Another thread about tankadin specs at 80

Postby vexryn » Tue Oct 28, 2008 3:26 pm

Looking for feedback on my targeted tankadin spec for level 80.

A few notes to consider before you look:
1) Yes, I'm not taking Kings. I know that it will be covered by other pallies that are part of our raid group. Ditto for Heart of the Crusader.
2) I anticipate spending some time as an OT as well. I took Divine Guardian for OT utility, particularly to be a raid damage sponge from time to time.
3) Yes, I know I've only assigned 69 out of 71 points. One of the primary questions is what to do with the last 2 points.

So here's the build:
http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?talent=sVZ0xVAfuMteIRGoxo


I welcome any and all constructive criticism and feedback.

I'm also open to guidance about where to place the final 2 points. To me, the primary options (assuming I will NOT be picking up raid buffs) seem to be putting 2 points into either:
- Benediction for mana manangement
- Divine Intellect for mana management (by having a bigger mana pool)
- Reckoning

Another alternative might be Guardian's Favor for pure utility - more flexibility to throw around a Hand of Protection if I'm an OT without a target and it looks like it's necessary.

Any thoughts here? Is Benediction more effective than Divine Intellect if I want a little extra mana management here? Or notwithstanding Reckoning's issues, is it still worth it to go 2/5 Reckoning if I have the points available anyway? Or would you just take Guardian's Favor, or even (gasp) Stoicism if you've got 2 points to spare?

Thanks in advance.

Wow, I proposed a spec so perfect that no one on this forum can criticize it?

Go figure. :)

Believe me, you have no idea of what kind of flame you might incurr into by proposing Divine Intellect as a talent for a tankadin.

You're all doing it wrong. What you really need to do is reroll Priests and heal tank heroics. Like I did. Just now. In Crypts. Fucking Warriors.

Should have used the present one instead then.

You *know*. If that's the case go ahead. I'd rather not count on that.

default + dg and imp hoj. You won't use it much trust me. Even on kings they'll see more use.

- Reckoning

between benediction and DI, benediction is the winner. 10% more int does not equate a 10% higher mana pool(nor 15% actually), and the difference is that when you spend less, any recovery is better in comparison. Working off base mana and total mana, benediction is magnified inboth cases, while DI only on total mana recoveries.

I'd be very worried if I had to put my HoP spell to use more often than "the occasional fight". It's one of those things that look nice on paper but just don't help in practice.

Yes it's better. No you don't need it at 80. No it's not worth putting the points in reckoning. The whole problem with reckoning is that it was already kinda bad, now it just plain fails. I'd fill kings instead.

It's not so much that I hate Kings. I guess fundamentally it's just that if I *know* that I have Kings covered by another raid pally (and likewise on Heart of the Crusader), what WOULD you do with the 8 points freed up by Kings and HotC? Thus, my exploration of Divine Guardian, Imp. HoJ, and the possibility of Benediction or Reckoning.

So if I assume that the core spec to fill out is 5/56/6, with 4 points left to assign, and you may NOT take Kings or HotC, what would your spec look like? From your comments, it sounds like what you'd be "forced" to spec would be this(?):
