Imp Righteous Fury to 10%

Postby honorshammer » Mon Sep 15, 2008 8:14 am

One of the constant issues I see raised against Protection Paladins is the belief (founded or unfounded) that Paladins take more damage than Warriors over the course of the fight.

The disparity between Defensive Stance 10% damage reduction versus Righteous Fury's 6% damage reduction is often cited. I don't know if the Death Knights or Druids have an anologous skill to RF/DS or what the damage reduction is.

I believe it would make balancing the classes much easier if Righteous Fury was simply a 10% damage reduction to match Defensive Stance.

10% and a option to turn it on/off without mana cost and I would be very happy. Un purgeble ofc.

Raise your hand if you've tanked a progression boss and realized during the fight that your Righteous Fury is/is about to be gone.

Isn't that why they gave us mana pots? :P

I'm still hoping for that change to happen. It's long due ...

@Rothes : Since Tankadin (the addon) and Pally Power both provide visual feedback, announcing when your RF is off / about to go off, I've had no trouble noticing it beforehand. But it used to happen all the time before.

Thats why I use smartbuff, it auto-buffs Righteous fury / aura of your choice when you are out of combat and there is X% of the buff remaining.

Means you never go into a fight with Crusader Aura up and no RF!

The only downside is when I respecced ret and forgot to turn off the RF auto-buff, died rather fast then lol

<==Guilty at like the worst possible time. I transferred to a new server/guild and didn't have tankadin setup right so on my tanking debut in SSC for them I had horrible problems with the trash between Hydross and Letharis the Blind.

powa aura set to display a HUGE graphic in the middle of your screen when RF is not active will pretty much end forgetting to put rf up again

I have to agree. If they gave us the same avoidance levels, and the only difference (realistically) was the 4%, it'd be one thing, but when combined with many other factors, it should probably be done. It might be unfair for Holy Paladins in PvP, but they need help anyway.
I rule.

Recently on the PTR I ran half SP Heroic without the RF :oops: Well, I did wonder why some guys got close to me on threat, but I never really lost aggro if they didn't attack a target that I didn't judged. Amazing how much threat we can do, since on of the main DPSers was a SWP Warrior that DWed the sword from Archie and the S4 2h Sword.

I haven't had RF falling off problems since I got tankadin, but I'd still lke to see the duration removed.
