Aug 4th 2008 5:47PM These changes sound awesome! As a prot paladin, in 5-mans I usually come in 2nd or 3rd in DPS, but I can't solo at all. And PVP is a total farce. All the Prot tree changes look awesome, I'm really excited for Wrath.
Jun 6th 2008 1:33AM As a paladin tank just starting heroics in a small guild, we often have to pug for DPS. In pugging normal 70 5-mans, all I ask for is that the person I'm inviting has passable english skills to communicate with. Especially BM hunters. No matter their gear, as long as they can chat I'll invite them. So far that has worked out for me well. To me, what will get you invited into my group fastest is a coherent phrase asking to be invited.
Today I got a tell from a BM hunter which was just "ssss". I replied "ssss?" and all I got back was "hunter". Next up was a guy in a guild named "Ninja Farmers" so after I invited him, I asked in party chat if he really was a ninja and a farmer and if we should worry for our loot. Instead of answering or joking, he just left the party....
At least where I'm at in the game, I don't care what gear the people I'm grouping with have, I just want them to speak some english and communicate with me. This is a social game, so... yar!
May 4th 2008 7:23PM I'm currently leveling a 63 protection paladin, and I have to say its a blast. I play 99% of the time with a mage, so AE pulling 6 ogres or orcs at a time is ridiculously fun. To switch from ret to prot at 62, I'd say the only item you should upgrade is your sword, and if possible your shield. Other than that, +def and +spell damage plate is really all you need. Holy Shield, Retribution Aura and Blessing of Sanctity do most of your work for you.
