Work on normals until you have 20k-ish health and 20-22k armor, I imagine. I was already there from questing, rep rewards, and some lucky drops in nonheroic instances.

Emphasize effective health (stamina and armor) more than block value; the 900ish you'll have is probably Fine. Make sure your healer is skilled, and don't be afraid to CC.

If you're getting soundly thrashed, consider using Kings + Devo aura, and either flasking or eating some elixirs. Additionally, you can buy 25 stamina food from vendors (e.g., argent crusade food lady). I keep 1-2 stacks for cheap usage, since my cooking sucks. ;)

I hear you :/

Anyway, squeezing in another 200 block-value at the cost of god knows how much HP is a very bad idea when trash-mobs hit for 5-6k.

You may have a consecration-spell, but there's really no shame in using cc! I use cc (if we brought any) on every pull with more than one caster. Less stress on me, fewer gray hairs on my healer's head.

You'll notice that as your gear improves, melee mobs become pretty trivial. It's the casters that get you!


Just remembered those web-spinners in Old Kingdom.. 20k shadowbolt -_-
I used to play a paladin.
