Hey,
I've been tanking since june this year orso. Anyways, I've read allot on the new patch, but due to my laptop crash I wasn't able yet to play. However, I've read that there are some huge changes, and since I'm the kinda guy that plays allot with one character (me alt is lowlvl mage :P), I am not familiar with other stats other then the pre 3.0.x tankadin's.

So I've joined, hoping to learn more about strength, hit and expertise. Also, you're never to old to learn from the real veterans!

So I hope to learn allot here!

Heya

I play a tankadin on Balnazzar, Protezione is my name.

I have leveled 1-70 tank specced and tanked every instance from RFC-Illidari Council in Black Temple and Alzagar in Hyjial.

Suffice it to say I have been around the block a few times, there is always more to learn. I love to tank, and i suspect anyone dedicated to making a forum dedicated to the principal is a good group to shoot ideas at.

Look forward to meeting y'all and maybe even contributing somehting of my own now and again.

Keep up the good work, cheers!

Hello!

I don't think I have a whole lot in the way of original things to say, but I enjoy the hell out of tanking as my prot-paladin, and so I thought I'd register!

Anyway, I really like the idea of this site (and can I say the shirts look badass? because they do), and I look forward to reading what everyone has to say.

I'm Aliskander of Doomhammer, and I'll probably do a lot of lurking :D

Hey!
New to 70 with my Paladin, who I've decided to stick to prot with. Just stumbled on this site a bit ago and after browsing some figured I'd register :)

Just wanted to heap some gratitude now that I've finally registered. Loooooong time reader; ever since my prot pally hit 70 (yes, levelled prot and all. Ret and I didn't get along), this place has been the first place I look for, well, pretty much everything. Trying to get uncrushable heading into my first Kara all the way through now trying to regear with 3.0, I have looked and I have found.

So hello! You're all wonderful and I'm the quiet one in the back taking copious notes. :D

For now, anyway.

Long Time Troller, First Time Poster.

My name is Ayka, I've played a Paladin almost exclusively since Open Beta way way back in October of 2004. I rolled a Dwarf Paladin in November (for the Release) of 2004, and have played the class ever since.

I remember the days that Paladins in End-Game Raiding didn't have a choice between Healing, Tanking or DPSing. I've taken my Dwarf through Naxxramas Pre-BC, and every single piece of content leading to it. Some Server First kills, 40-Hour Raid Weeks, the Standard.

I then rolled my Current Paladin (Extravagant, soon to be Renamed to Ayka) on Black Dragonflight - Horde. I play on Casual Terms now, although She is currently Level 80, and I'm gearing up to tank Naxxramas this time around, and I'm pretty excited about it. Its nice to see things from Multiple PoV's, and I healed it last time we entered the Zone.

I'd like to think over the many, many years I've played Paladin, I can help add some Insight into the forums here. I helped establish DPS Paladins on my Original Server in Naxx, and was one of the first on the server who Was Protection to Tank Kara when it first released. I was even Protection in-between Raids Pre-BC, and even during the days that the end of the Protection Tree was BoK.

I've played Ret for Leveling, Prot for Raiding, and Holy for Raiding over the past 4 Years.

I don't consider myself a Theorycrafter, I prefer the Tried and True method of "Did that work? No? Try something different." I enjoy learning new fights (which, I hope that my Guild Picks up Naxx easily...), and developing Strategy.

I hope that I provide something to help each of the people on this forum over the course of time.

Thanks!

Hello fellow wielders of the light!

Name's Kelarik, originally a hater of Paladins (or so I thought) but then I found out I just hated Retribution, and actually loved Protection.

Since then, I've deleted my Paladin, Kelarin, and remade Kelarik (former being female Blood Elf, latter being male), because I couldn't put a female in front of big scary bosses (chivalry isn't dead!). He quickly became my favourite and when he hit 70 took 'Main' status from my Rogue. Hit 80 tonight, and looking forward to 5-mans, heroics, and eventually Arthas.

Look forward to getting involved with the community, and contributing some little bit.

Oh, a hullo-thread.

Started tankadin as part of a paladin-trio with two friends, replaced my main which was 66 at that point and overtook her to 70, so here I am!

I hail from an RP realm, so I scoff snobbily at all of you that have unimmersive names ;).
This also means my paladin grew up as a farmer's daughter in Westfall until she felt the light call her, turning her militia service into squire- and eventually knighthood. As for the penchant to go protection, hard work and sacrifice are bred into the hardy people of Westfall, and y'know what they say... the hair of the maidens of Westfall is as fair the golden barley, and their heads seem to be stuffed with the same :D.



In general, so far I'm positively impressed by the lack of flaming, and the attitude of helpfulness when dealing with questions on these boards. I'll be sure to lurk, annoy with questions, and rear my head from time to time.

Cheers,
