"Alliance can probably admire the pretty new icon on their hotbar."Um, Seal of Vengeance is an excellent tanking seal. Get 3 points of precision. When tanking a mob, put a full stack of Holy Vengeance on it, and start rotating between SoR and SoV with every Judgement cool down (Judge + Seal Righteousness, wait 8 seconds, Judge + Seal Vengeance, wait 8 seconds...) your threat will go through the roof. Even without this rotation and just using SoV it's very good. Just learn how to play your class.And in the mid-high 60's prot is the best way to level, so SoV should definitely be on the bar.

Just a thought, you should probably mention that for tankadins taking some extra time in zangarmarsh and grinding out the rep for http://www.wowhead.com/?item=25828is most definitely worth it

I agree, I've used Seal of Vengeance while tanking to great effect. I saw a significant jump in dps too.

My problem with Seal of Vengeance is that it doesn't frontload as much threat from the get-go as Seal of Righteousness. I believe they buffed it in 2.3 to deal more damage, though, so maybe it's more viable now. My bad if I missed that.

As it was explained to me, you want to frontload with SoR, then switch to SoV once you've gotten a good "lead" on the party. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I've had issues using SoV because my aggro-hound DPS tends to catch up to the threat lead I established. When I change form SoR to SoV there is a dip in threat until the SoV stacks up, at the time when my DPS figures I now have a lead so they can pop trinkets and do whatever else they need to do to top the DPS charts.I do only have 2/3 in Precision, however, so might have to have a play to see if I can manage that extra point.
