@ AriahealzAnother major error in your post:"I would say Prot pallies are the distant 3rd because they will have neither the AP of a ret or the SP of a Holy."Pala tanks get 30% stamina as SP, and most of their gear has strength on, so they have a decent amount of AP too. You're right that they won't have the AP of Ret or the SP of holy, however they do have more AP than holy and a similar (depending on their stamina) SP to Ret, though usually slightly less, so it balances out to an extent :-P I had over 2k AP and 560ish SP before I even got to tier7, so Prot pallies JoL will have about the same effect as a holy pala, if not more depending on how the tank has stacked his stats. I use a "The prot pally will be just as busy focusing on tank specific spells and abilities as the holy pally will be on healing, so the argument that a Prot judges more than a Holy isn’t accurate."Prot pallies do focus on tank specific spells, however judgements are an integral part of these spells for that classic 9696 spell rotation, hence why most pala tanks take at least 1 point in Improved Judgements to lower the CD on their judgements to 9 seconds, so they can keep applying it regularly within their rotation. Holy palas don't really need to judge as often (once per minute according to JotP) and I'd rather they kept up with healing people rather than judging everytime it comes off CD. But then, as a tank I prefer to know I'll get that heal rather than die seeing a judgement land on the bosses head instead :-P
