Oh really? :roll:
Perhaps I have a dislike for using macros with modifiers.

Greetings from blizzcon! We now have confirmation that for prot that pressing holy power will grant 3 holy power. Allowing us to SHOTR immediatly.

Means popping divine plea will do that. Which makes our starter AS > J DP sotr? Oorrrrrr will it be normal rotation get to 3 HP then sotr > dp > sotr ... Or maybe do we dictate our startoff based on the SD proc

• DP is on the GCD
• Holy Power lasts a while before it decays
• Burst threat on the pull is the main issue, not threat once we've been able to do a full cycle of 939

Thus, I'd say the pulling combo is:
  1. Divine Plea, get 3 HoPo
  2. AS
  3. Judge
  4. ShoR
  5. CS -> 939

Hey! Whoever asked the question a few before mine about the pally rotation, adding holy power to judgement, etc - you stole my question, ya theif, and then I had to ask about vengeance! :) seriously, I liked that the rotation was addressed, and whoever you are (definitely someone in this thread), you said something very,very similar to what I would have asked too.

Adding holy power to divine plea strikes me as a great solution to a bunch of issues. We can pop it on the pull and frontload threat, we have an emergency key to hit when we need to burst threat.... I like the sound of it.

DP=HoPo has been suggested a few times and is a great solution.

Wish I knew which build it was going to appear in - I assume 4.0.3 on live.

I'd imagine just about every change from this point on is going to be Beta only unless they feel they have a pressing need to push it to live.

Considering they haven't gotten around to putting Rune Strike changes on live yet, I sincerely doubt DP will make the cut.

They could always slip some things in with the bug fix patch on tuesday, but I don't expect that to be one of them. (There will be a patch, it's needed to fix the cogwheel issue. And Mage glyphs. And all the other stuff.)
I don't play WoW any more.

In this video I am covering the 2 main Tanking Rotations for a Protection Paladin.

1 - Single Target:
Spec - http://wowtal.com/#k=-e40M6C2H.a7t.paladin.R3gp1p
Opener: DP (for 3 HP) Wings + Exorcism + Avenger Shield
Rotation: CS - J - CS - AS - CS - SOTR When AS is down and not up by Grand Crusader you choose Holy Wrath.

2 - AOE Tanking:
Spec - http://wowtal.com/#k=ekfFK1RM.a7t.paladin.qHMtYV
Opener - DP (3 HP) - Inquisition - Wings when up use it
Rotation - HOTR - Conc - HW - AS This is Priority but always HOTR first and inbetween each.
Note: DO NOT refresh Inquisition until it is about to expire. Use it to its MAX.

HDH Spec
Same as Single except for the following
1 - If you proc Sacred Duty then your 3HP finisher is SOTR
2 - If you do NOT proc Sacred Duty your 3HP finisher is Word of Glory. On either yourself or a raid member in need. Totally situational.


Power Auras for Sacred Duty and Inquisition:

Set=Page 1@
Aura[1]=Version:4.4; icon:Ability_Paladin_JudgementRed; buffname:Sacred Duty; x:-137; customname:Sacred Duty; owntex:true; exact:true; PowerType:0; size:0.26; y:-7; texmode:2; timer.HideLeadingZeros:true; timer.h:1.84; timer.Texture:AccidentalPresidency; timer.enabled:true; timer.cents:false; timer.Relative:CENTER; timer.Transparent:true@

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.
