Prot pally help

#1Fiasco248Posted 1/30/2013 9:29:37 AM
I'm not a dedicated raider anymore I prefer casual playing so I'm not too familiar with others as much as I use to. Doing lfr as a blood dk it is rare for another tank to pull threat off me and out damage me. My prot pally feels alot squishier than my dk and does wayyyyy less dmg. In lfr this prot pally was insane. Sure it's lfr but he was consistently doing more dmg (top 5 , even on single target boss). I noticed that most of his gear was crit hit and haste with very few dodge/parry/mastery. Is that the new norm now to go crit and haste , and why ?

Sounds like he was geared for ret, not prot. I am surprised no one called him on it. Ret is far squishier then prot.

Crit...no. Haste and hit/exp help with survival (faster/more steady hp generations) It depends on who you ask, but haste can be better than mastery for defense.

Hit to cap = Exp to cap > Mastery = Haste > Parry >= Dodge >>>>>>>> Crit

You cap hit and expertise (2550 hit raiting and 5100 expertise rating).

You stack mastery OR haste, your preference. However if you got a piece of gear that is Haste/Mastery, that works just as well, just reforge the one you aren't stacking to hit or exp for cap.

Dodge and Parry are still useful stats, just less desirable than Mastery or Haste. Don't ignore Dodge or Parry, but don't stack it either.

Crit is terrible. Stay away from it.

Stamina works exactly as it always has. Stack it as you need to survive bigger hits.

Will higher end dodge parry gear have more Stam than hit haste gear or is it relatively the same ?

also how should i properly reforge gear? should i use dodge/parry gear and reforge into hit/exp to cap, or should i use dps gear like hit/crit or haste/crit and reforge the crit into hit/exp to cap?

Meh. As difficult as it may be for you, you're just going to have to accept that you'll have to go without dick for awhile. - Steamster to Little Zardar

Any Plate gear without Crit is Prot Pally gear. As was stated, use the above stat priority.

Intl? Seriously?

That aside I wonder if the haste model will ever become invalid again. While absolutely fun, it doesn't feel right.

It is honestly the only reason I'd ever consider going Prot, right now (other than the fact that Ret is terribly boring). I really like odd things that don't quite fit, but I guess that is why I play a Lock.
