Paladin Week: Summary

Ohmy is my paladin, and she was my third character to hit 70 in Burning Crusade. Paladin tanking in BC was a bit of a mess. Or, tanking in general really. What seemed most weird right now is that you needed a certain amount of Spell Power to make enough threat to hold mobs and bosses. Spells like Concecration and Avenger's Shield did holy damage, and thus became stronger with more spell power. The typical thing to do as a Protection Paladin was to go for a spell power-weapon in main hand. If I'm not mistaken, there was also "mana per 5" on some of the protection gear sets. Just like the hunter gear sets. Things have changed...

I had met some paladin tanks that had really impressed me, and I wanted one for myself. I leveled Ohmy as protection, but then it turned out that I didn't dare to tank dungeons... I still kept building her gear for tanking, and I have this memory of her killing mobs in Isle of Quel'danas; it took her probably 5 minutes to kill one mob, and this warrior just stood next to me laughing his ass off...

Wrath of the Lich King was where I finally managed to build some courage and do some real tanking. Wrath was the expansion where I did most dungeons, and I did them with all my characters, and tried out all roles. I know all pulls of every dungeon in Northrend by heart. Ohmy even tanked most of the raids in Wrath in our alt runs.

Ohmy is 90 now, but so are a lot of my characters, and sadly she doesn't get that much playtime. Unless there's something that needs transmuting...

  1. As an ex-TBC Maintankadin, I can say wholehearthly that I will change Holy Power for Spellpower without a second thought. That wholy HP-stuff actually made me stop playing paladins for a while....

  2. Nice to finally meet your paladin. :D Have to say I wish I'd started playing sooner so I could have done some tanking in Wrath.
