Consecration in 2.1

Postby Liadrin » Wed May 23, 2007 11:14 am

What rank of Consecration are you guys using now that the coefficient for downranking was nerfed? I noticed my rank 1 does about half of what it used to, although that might still be okay for the sake of AOE tanking. Especially with mana being more of a premium with the SA nerf, are you guys sticking with rank 1?

At what rank do you no longer experience a penalty due to downranking?

Thanks.

Well, you shouldn't experience a penalty at rank 5. I was actually going to post this, but I've found that the spell damage provided by judgement of the crusader isn't effected by the downranking penalty - so I'm still using rank 1.

I'd like to see how you guys make out with this as I've never used anything other than rank 4.

I always use rank 3 in regular instances and heroics and it seems to me to be the sweet spot for threat versus mana conservation.

I use max rank consecrate and have rank 1 on my hot bar. most of the time I want the threat when I lay it down, every so often I just want a tic of -something- to get the mob to attack me and to keep aoe adds off the healer.


when I'm low on mana and don't want to use consc for threat gen I usually find holy shield alone sufficient, but then again I have yet to try heroics or raids.
If you invest all of your talents, all of your gear, all of your knowledge and skill into tanking, you should be the best tank.

I ran BM quite a few times after the patch and was able to use Rank 1 to hold the adds over healing aggro pretty well. In my tanking gear it does around 37'ish dmg per tick (read: 5 man tanking gear).

So the nerf is annoying, but it still seems usable in some situations. I still need to do some testing in SH and SL though as I used rank 1 there a lot.

Oh, how inconvenient.

I currently have a macro that casts max rank Consecrate on a standard press, and rank 1 on an Alt-press. (I have a similar macro for Holy Shield too, very useful.)

I was thinking that I could just update the macro From rank 1/max to 5/max, and go from there.

But now I hear that Rank 1 is still useful in the single target / JotC case.

*sigh*...

I've been using rank 3 to get around 120tps. After 2.1 I dipped below 100tps on rank 2 so I upranked.

I only use rank 1 in PvP when trying to decloak a rogue.

I find rank 1 works wonders in BM where mana conservation helps. Still I also use it for rogues, especially the times I played AB and was guarding the nodes. Of course, I don't PvP much at all, but I have a little.

So add Rank 1 to the same macro as a shift-press or something.
