I think you should stay around to get some quality dps time in. Transitioning so fast only means u waste more time/mana killing adds, which is not as efficient even if u aoe the adds on top of the boss.

The only reason why i would transition so early is if the MT is unable to keep up threat for that long, then the aggro reset would be a godsend.

Just my 2c

2) Which chain of spells would maximize agro without pulling hydross? (I'm afraid of a nice AS crit on the boss and messing the whole try )

3) Any further tips?

PS: Soz if I'm breaking any rule here :roll: :oops:


1) If you are uncrittable with 150/150 resist unbuffed, your hp is fine. With both nature and frost auras/totems up the elems will hit you for abt 2-3k uncrit at 4 marks. At 5 marks it becomes 4-6k. Factor in about 25% resist becoz of your Good Resistance(220/220).

2) Wear the blue +spell damage to consecrate relic (drops in Seth). For me i normally run with the tank and drop a max rank consecrate then judge JoR on 1 mob. Stun a 2nd and use righteous defence on 3rd if they are not aggroed by your consecrate. But if your raid knows wat it's doing, you should not need to do that.

Seriously tho, i feel a prot pally should never tank more than 2 adds becoz of the amount of damage inc to you beyond mark 3. It's too risky esp with ur low hp.
