Tankadin

by Jon on October 22nd, 2007

While waiting for the Headless Horseman to set the town of Goldshire ablaze, I dueled with a very convincing protection-spec’d paladin. I’m not sure if you’ve seen two paladins go at it before, lets just say–we could go all night if we wanted. Nonetheless, I was impressed by his ability to totally hand my ass to me. Yeah, he was definitely better geared and trumped me by a level or two, but I’m no pushover, and was consistently getting wtfpwnd.

I knew instantly what spec he was rollin w/ his Capt. America shield toss and his extra reckoning swinging. I figured wth, time for a respec (my second since I rolled this char way back at the beginning of Dark Iron). It was time to graduate from retnoob to tankadin.

With Shelbi respecing her lock to affliction, and us both just reaching level 64, it worked out well. I’m still getting the hang of the new skills but I’m definitely liking it. I’ve found that I’m much more effective at taking out multiple mobs and actually prefer to go up against groups at a time. I’m eager to head back to Azeroth to do some AOE-grinding in Stratholme.

  1. Yeah, I’m a tankadin (41) and could probably do the same thing. When you get 57% dmg mitigation, 65% blocking, and damage reflection going, someone’s going down, and it’s not me. :)

    I love your blog. I just found it and made it all the way back this far.

  2. I’ve been running through SM while waiting on HH runs. A shield spike on my Lichen Guard makes for a fun time.

    Thanks for reading. =)

  3. “I’m not sure if you’ve seen two paladins go at it before, lets just say–we could go all night if we wanted.”

    Now that’s just boasting! ;)
