Solid, solid article, and a solid response to a ridiculous troll.

I like how you talked about how much front-end work you have to do to understand the class in order to be a good tank. I believe much of what you need to know to be a good tank in general is also an absolute necessity to be a good Paladin tank.

Tank Hard! (Goddamn, I'm hard)

also, my first article is up on the site


Complete with a troll, but not just any troll, one of the most famous trolls the paladin forums have ever known: A CM who told us to shut up and heal when 1.9 hit, who's now no longer with Blizzard.


I sincerely doubt that is actually Caydiem, especially since she is still with Blizzard ;)

I think she just changed divisions or job descriptions or something.
That was what she posted at any rate.

I will say I always thought it was a he though, until Lore's post just now.

Of course, I did always wonder too if Lore's insider information came from direct knowledge rather than some other second hand "secret insider source". . . . :twisted: :wink:

And I'm sure she's quite "pleased" with the current state of Druids and Rogues.

well she said she was female point blank several times while she was a CM, and there are pictures of her from BlizzCon.

Thank you very much! That means a lot to me.

I have a bit of a compulsion to write so there will be articles posted up there as quickly as the site owner wishes to publish them.

Guess I just missed it. I never was one to pay attention to pictures of actual people from cons.

One thing that you did not mention in the article is downranking.

Holy shield rank 1 works well on keeping you uncrushable in low mana situations, particularly as you gear up and the threat from HS isn't as necessary.

Consecration rank 4 is so very delightful as it has a severely reduced mana cost to rank 6 and is nearly as well effected by the spell damage coefficent as rank 6 is. Generally a good rotation is this (IMO):

Seal wisdom/crusader/light
Pop wings (if initial aggro is important)
shield toss
consecrate rank 4
holy shield
judge+seal righteousness
exorcism (if applicable)
consecrate/HS/judge/exo rotation
