As a really well geared protection paladin the high burst magic damage has been really scary to me. I am at the point where WoTLK has no upgrades left for me and I sit right above 41 k flask/food buffed. We banged our head on 3d sarth 25 man for 3 weeks with RNG being the factor if one of our tanks survived the huge burst sartharion does. We only have 3 prot pallies and 1 warrior in our tanking corps so we didn't have a choice. We had to get a dps death knight who got offspec tank gear to tank him and we were finally able to do it then. This fact that having the best gear in the game for a prot pally vs having a death knight in mostly 10 man tank gear tank sarth 3d scares me for what will happen when tanking content mattersHttp://bladezoflight.blogspot.com

I had exactly the same reaction. Our MTs were all relegated to add duty while a (reasonably well-geared, but still) DK MTed Sarth.My Protection Paladin is a great example of exactly how the problem shows up. She's not in great gear, but she nonetheless takes laughable damage from melee. Magic, however, is almost totally unmitigated.
