My WOTLK thoughts

Well, after my previous post on the onset of WOTLK Lazyness i thought that i better run through what i am planning and what i think of the current new abilities and talents.

Sorry, i know everyone is doing this but i want to offer my opinion, flame me if you want, but expect a bitch slap back.


First Thoughts;

Spec, I will always be prot so here is my Day 1 level 70 respec;

Level 80 Spec;



Arms Tree;

Deflection needs no explanation and is a must have. Improved Charged is taken because the new talent Warbringer will give me another intercept and also allow me to chain pull and instant Shield Slam with  the extra rage. Combined with Vigiliance it is a nice way for your healer to be protected beyond belief.

Fury Tree;

Cruelty, a good talent for extra crit chance.

Protection Tree;

Shield Specialization, mitigation, increase’s block chance and gens rage from blocks, i feel its a must have. 

Imp Thunder Clap, now revised from traditional Imp Thunder Clap, to only do an increase in dmg by 30%. However, this skill now scales with AP and has no limit on targets. So any increase in TC dmg will increase its threat.

Inicite, very high increase in crit % for particular skills (got a feeling it will be nerfed to 5/10 in live) generally can’t pass it.

Anticipation. same as always, must have for mitigation.

Last Stand, ow shit!! skill, no more needs to be said.

Imp Revenge, i personally swing between this and imp Heroic strike, this will be the last 2 points spent.

Shield Mastery, increases block chance by 30%, cool talent for mitigation, i like it as it also reduces the Shield block CD by 20secs which means 100% blocking twice as often.

Toughness, same as before must have for Effective HP.

Imp Spell Reflect, i like the modifications to this talent and with it max’d out your party will reflect the first spell cast which will give you a good way to start on casters. I would charge, TC, Spell Reflect, then go multi  tanking from there.

Puncture, must have

Concussion Blow, i like it, and i need it for vigilance. You could skip it but i like it.

One handed weapon, speaks for itself.

Imp Defensive Stance, i like it to reduce spell dmg from casters, but also the old increase in melee dmg is nice. again some people will not pick it up and others will (one talent i would like feed back on).

Vigilance, again i like it as either a ow shit!! talent or a buff on a healer for additional safety and threat.

Focus Rage and Vitality, nothing to be said get them!!

Warbringer, i love the idea and it means a nice charge for prot warriors without rage loss, i also see this as a 2nd intervene. Or a beautiful charge pop trinkes shield slam, conc, hamstring and spank.

Devestate, needed

Critical Block, i see this as a must have and ill go into further detail as this talent is the topic of my next WOTLK post.

Sword n Board, Blog Title, no need for explanation from me, flame me please but i like the sound of this, esp for Prot PVP trinket syncing.

Damage Shield, i like the paladin ret aura and this provides something similar, Combined with a good shield spike this will allow some nice multi mob tanking

Shockwave, thankyou dev’s. 


Well they are my thoughts on my spec and the talents. Please comment and add what you think as this is about the players and their opinions.
