I also enjoyed this article, but it seems very peculiar that this column seems to be avoiding discussion of the rather bitter controversy swirling around the paladin class right now.Let's be clear: we just got a number of significant nerfs that have a huge impact on how our class is played, no matter how you are specced. I would love to see this column addressing the play of paladins post 3.3. I would also love to see more reporting on the rationale behind the nerfs themselves, and whether they are having the effect Blizzard was hoping for. Or even identifying what, precisely, that effect is.It's kind of the elephant in the room, no?

This article isn't about the nerfs, it's about teaching folks new to Pally tanking what they need to know. The nerfs can be discussed in another article, but this series isn't the place.

As I am aware. Please re-read my post: the point is that in the face of massive class changes, it seems strange that this column continues to focus on low level tanking which, while interesting, hardly seems a pressing concern.It's rather like a sports writer focusing on Spring Training in the middle of the World Series.
