If you have threat issues in Sunwell, spec Reckoning.

I went 51/10 recently, and the boost to TPS is very noticeable. Highly recommended - basically copied Lore's spec.

'course, we have no ret pally (other than me) so getting judgements / 3% crit & personal TPS all at once is becoming challenging...

Some rough numbers.

If you assume a 400 block value and 50% block rate with Holy Shield active, over 10 seconds the Libram of Repentance will mitigate:

400 * (50% + 5.3%) = 221.2 dmg

The Tome of the Lightbringer will mitigate over 10 seconds:

(400 + 186/2) * 50% = 246.5 dmg

So the Tome of the Lightbringer does offer slightly better mitigation, but the Libram of Repentance gives slightly more threat.

Well, look on the bright side. If your DPS is threat capped they won't miss the 3% crit.
