Hi all, I've been lurking here for about a month now, and I thought it was about time to introduce myself. We had a prot pally in our guild gquit about 2 months ago, because we actually had the balls to ask him to eat some food and put on a flask for a an alar attempt, so needless to say we were in a bit of a panic to replace him, so I decided to respec my holy paladin, It took me a while(and about 5000 gold) and I'm still prety green, but in the last week or so, I maintanked supremus, and we got gorefiend down to 6% last night, while I was maintanking.
I just wanted too thank all of you for your contributions to this board. I was completely clueless when I found this sight, and could not have made my tankadin without all of your help.

Thanks :)

Just wanted to thank ya'll (again) for having some tankadin info that was actually useful. :D

Stumbling across this site is what actually gave me the courage to repsec my (then) lvl 65 pally from holy to prot, cuz popular opinion on my server is that pallies are healers. Period. I lvl'ed her almost the whole time as holy and dont get me wrong, I like healing, but deep down i always wanted to try my hand at tanking. I asked around my server a bit and got a lot negative feedback ('pallies are healbots you n00b') so i let it go for a bit, til i grouped with a kick ass pally tank on a heroic pug in bot when i was on my 70 mage. I asked him a coupla questions and that got my courage back up to take a second look at tankadin'ing, thats when i found this site and decided, the hell with it, I wanna tank!


anyhoots, Indago is newly lvl 70 with really terrible gear (still working on that) and with a lot of help from your guys' posts i think im starting to get the hang of this tanking thing :wink:

Hi guys.

I have read this forum since.... 4 or 5 months, since i respect to protection with mi paladin (who was an alter). Basically, all the "theory" i need to learn about it, i have read it here.

'Cause the armory doesnt work, i will introduce myself.

Bilibrambo, dwarf 70.
Server: C'thun. EU server. Spain.
Guild: "la vieja guardia". We are now on trys in illidan.
I didnt raid in ssc and tk with this char, so my gear is from badges and some items from mh and bt.

PD: its too difficult to write in english for me, but i understood "everything" what i have read, lol. So you will not see me posting here very frequently.
But you have to know that this forum is my "bible" in tanking as a paladin.

Hi guys :)

Been lurking around here, even after I registered earlier last week, thought I'd finally post and say hi, this place is an awesome wealth of information and helps putting a Tankadin together much easier.

I'm almost about ready to tank the first half of kara even as early as next week (just need a bit more avoidance for uncrush). Been running pugs and running with guildies and I sure hope my GM (who also MTs most of our karas as a prot warrior) only jokes about paladin tanks being 'red-headed-stepchildren'.

You can find me on armory as Sotallytober on Balnazzar-US, my mage is Evokata.

Hey all...

I am a female(not only in game) tankadin on the Undermine server. I am the main tank also in my guild of which I am also the GM.

I have been playing a pally for well over a year, close to 2 now. I am a casual gamer, and also play way to many alts.

I have been browsing the site for a while, and decided to finally register and get to posting.

Thanks for the great site.

Postby Kountry » Tue Jun 17, 2008 2:34 pm

Hey all! Kountry here, a new Pally convert! I rolled a Warrior tank for about 2 years now and lately got fed up with not getting any Heroic runs on my server, Korialstrasz. Plus my warrior got hacked..../cry.

So this morning I started a Pally, seeing as I love tanking and see all the Pallies rnning the Heroics and getting my raid spot:(. I just hit level 12 in 2 hours 48mins. WOOT! This will be my 5th toon to 70. Lock, Priest, Druid and Warrior. Pally is by far the funnest so far. I am really enjoying the way the Pally is played so far. I have read up a LOT about the complexities of all the seals and different Judgments. Sounds like a challenge and fun too!

Thanks for this site. I KNOW it will be very handy as I make my way up the ladder to 70.
Was a 70 Warrior Tank, now rolling a Pally Tank. In the works!

Hello Folks!

Postby Gerome » Wed Jun 18, 2008 5:49 am

Hey all! Looks like I haven't introduced myself either. = )

My name is Gerome, Dwarf Protection Paladin on the Maelstrom US Server. This was probably the first toon I ever rolled (about a year after WoW released) yet it was well into TBC I leveled him to 70. Leveled 1-60 as Ret, 60-70 as holy, and decided, "Hmmm... I think I'll go Prot!" 'Lo and behold, here I am, in a great guild known as Meliora on my server, SSC pretty much on farm, Kael'thas counting down until his demise, and MH being worked through. Its been quite an adventure and I want to thank everyone who posted great information here on Maintankadin. You helped make me the prot pally I am today!

I'm Nakama, Draenei Protection Paladin on the Argent Dawn US Server. This is definitely my main toon and the first I ever rolled. We were originally on Medivh and transferred when our friends transferred to AD. I've been to Karazhan all of once, unfortunately, and don't have much time to do a lot of raids and instances, but I'm working as best I can to make my pally better. I definitely appreciate all the posts here! :)

Hey guys, great resource.

My names Rofldps, and I play on Blackrock, initially wanted to go Ret, but never quite made it there.... anyway, I'm fresh out of Holy and into Protection, and while my gear is terrible its still fun to play a pally tank.

I'm sure there is a more in depth approach to aoe tanking, right now I'm finding it so much easier than warrior tanking.

Hello, I finally signed up on this forum, although I've been reading it for a while now but I think I want to start contributing and possibly sharing and discussing things.
My name's Lars and my Paladin Merinos is on EU-KilJaeden and right now we're just starting SWP with Kalecgos down and Brutallus on hold because half the guild doesnt show up on evenings with soccer games playing <.<

Hi. I wrote a slightly longer introduction post but IE ate it.

I've not been playing WoW long, Kysen was my first character (I now have a few low level alts), and I've been levelling him as Prot since level 30, mainly because I preferred anything that reduced the damage I take. I've been reading up on Paladin tanking, mainly from these forums, for a couple of weeks, but kept putting off actually heading into dungeons. This week I finally headed into Ramparts, and I'm now planning to work my way up from there, finally putting to use all the things I've been reading--this site's been great for someone who didn't really have a clue how his class worked at first. I'm looking forward to finally getting to experience at least some (my tiny guild is unlikely to ever hit the 25-mans) of the content I've heard so much about.

Postby Kelata » Sat Jun 28, 2008 3:50 am

Hello all, Kelata's my special little BE paladin that I intend on making a tankadin for the guild. Right now, the only Tankadins in my guild are Lythandar and Eitchietoe, and beings they are both from Australia, sometimes it's hard to have the spare tankage available. I've nearly leveled out a pally before, it was much fun. I know the basics of pally-dom, but I hope to learn the "tricks of the trade" from here. Thanks for the site, great help! :D

*smiles and waves*

My main is a tree-druid w/pewpew when I need DPS - pure caster. (Adendra of Scarlet Crusade... if you wanna look her up and giggle at her gear.) Overall, I'm pretty casual... not likely to see T5 instances anytime soon, but having a blast anyhow.

My little pally-girl, Geva, just turned 48. She might just be my second 70. She's getting more and more of my time and I'm harassing my friends with endless gear questions.

Sooo... I have gobs to learn about melee. >.> This looks like a good place to learn. Thanks in advance for your patience. *grins*

fairly new to Pally (actually I'm fairly new to the game :D ) but found this site while looking for info on changing my lvl 39 Ret to a Prot spec.

I'll probably ask loads of noob questions, but at least on here I feel like I will get sensible answers/advice and not just 'lol u noob' :D
