Wes, 70 pally tankadin of the farstriders server signing on! And arguably the best and most well known paladin tank on farstriders.

Look forward to acctully seeing some good info on pally tanking. Seems every WoW forum eventully dies off to trolls, this i find really annoying.

Since everyone one else is doing it, I'll introduce myself. I've been playing Glyhelm since open beta. Went from one to 60 as a tankadin, eventually admitted that I was more use to my guild as a healbot in raids and respecced a few months later. When I first saw the talent preview for BC, I respecced and farmed up the whole Deathbone Guardian set.

Now I'm one of two pally tanks in our guild. (other one is the guild master, and I'm the guild officer in charge of raid strategies so I KNOW I'm going to get a chance to see what I can do in Burning Crusade dungeons) As a guild we're just about to start Karazhan runs.

Hey all,

This forum has the makings of a very powerful player driven knowledge base. :) I'm still noob to the Pally class (almost 69 now though as a Blood Elf) but have played since Beta as a Rogue so I can appreciate both sides of the spectrum. I'm here to learn and I feel I'm in the right place :D

Furiouso of Aggramar

Tanking since it became cool, sorry was a healbot before and then a retnoob.

I just want to say thanks for creating this forum, it's far and away better than browsing through all the trash on the WoW pally forums.

Hi, I'm Lore, and I'm an alcoholic...

I am the tank Role Officer for Months Behind (http://mb.jmhsoft.com), a chronic theorycrafter, and just masochistic enough that I have to be taking damage on whatever character I'm playing (which goes real well on my priest)! Been playing Horde since WoW release, but always liked the concept behind the Paladin class, so when TBC was released I rushed Lore to 70 as a Tankadin.

I'm also an avid forum troll, so a forum where I can crunch numbers with other Tankadins is the closest I can get to watching porn at work without actually watching porn at work. Very much looking forward to participating here =)

Glad to meet you Lore...but I have to say, as someone who's stayed with one real main character, and that a paladin, since open beta; this kinda hit me harder than I thought it would.

"What!!?! A HORDE paladin! Blasphemy!"

Looking forward to theorycrafting with you, but just know I'd kill you on sight if I saw you PvP flagged. :D

Hehe, bumped into my first BE pally in a combat situation outside of Kara last night. Didn't realize what he was, until I started hitting him.

Then I stopped, since it was pointless. Neither of us would ever kill the other, so after 4 or 5 seconds of swinging at each other, we both just laughed and continued on.

I have about the same profile as Lore... Chronic Theorycrafter... Rushed Kath to 70..

I was an alliance Hunter on Day 1.. >.>; Hated alliance moved to the horde made a shaman.. played it till we splatered in Naxx didn't get a boss down since ppl and TBC on the verge of coming out.. I made a paladin to lvl 30 see if i liked it before TBC to *know* what i was getting into.. loved every minute of it..

So the first week TBC came off i assumed server instability so played on the evenings after work.. got to lvl 15 on friday night.. Then i played all day sat to lvl 29. And all day sunday to lvl 36 and took the week off and got to 57 on the next friday. That friday night my guild summoned me to Thrallmar and i ran Ramparts 4 times to take me from 57 to 58 and started questing in outlands.

Next week was back to work.. leveling got slower but i hit 70 3 weeks after TBC, clocking at 10days, 22hours of /played for 1-70.

The only Blood elf that hit 70 before me on Durotan was a BE hunter and i was a day behind...

Well that's me...

great forum

Awesome site, thanks for getting it up and running. I just started my blood elf pally (veterans can make fun of me now :P) and the information here is invaluable for tanking.

I'm still not sure whether I will be MT or heal/OT hybrid but even knowing this info to work with a paladin tank and knowing their strengths/weakness is very helpful.

I've tanked a few outlands instances now (ramps and bf) and it was fun but very tough, after reading these posts I see many things that I did wrong :) My background is as a holy priest healing up through karazhan so it is very cool getting to see the otherside of instancing.
