Last night I got to strap on the tank gear again and went toe to toe with Malygos in some six minute kill attempts. I have to admit, it was a lot of fun. I don't think I had any real threat issues, which was a concern of mine. I was probably getting a lot of ToT hits from our resident rogue, but really - isn't that what he's there for?
One of the biggest things I'm having to relearn is the 9/6/9 rotation, and to take a deep breath and wait for things to come off CD. My hotkeys weren't optimally setup either, as I generally use both specs for healing. I kept trying to Holy Shock myself throughout the fight - ah well.
Tonight I'll actually to respect to a proper tank build, though my gear is almost back to being fully gemmed out. With any luck I'll be able to snag a few more pieces from our Uld 25 man runs as well. My trinkets are complete shite (well, yeah - they are) and my rings need upgrading. Since we don't have any other paladins collecting offsets, and only one warrior who doesn't tank at all, I should be able to snag some block stuff.
Since I've gone prot for a few runs, I've gone back and looked over some of the upcoming changes to Protection in 3.2. Tomorrow I'll go over all those changes and see what I can make of them.
Am I wrong for secretly hoping one of our tanks doesn't make it tonight and I have to fill in?
