Paladin Tanking in 4.0/Cataclysm

With 4.0.1 releasing tomorrow (er, later today), I thought it might be useful to post some info about Paladin tanking with all the changes.  Yes, there are changes.  Lots of changes - to basic core mechanics of what you’ve done for several years.  Thankfully, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

For general patch change info, you can check MMO-Champion’s recap post.  For a summary of new/changed abilities for Paladins, check the Paladin Class Page at MMO-Champion.

Now, for what you really want to know, I’d recommend hitting up Knaughty’s 4.0 Tankadin FAQ - Protection Paladin Basics thread over on Maintankadin.  It’s still a work in progress, so keep that in mind.  It does have info about suggested specs, rotations (we have more than one rotation now!), etc.  He also has an Advanced thread started, but it doesn’t actually have content yet (if you’re viewing this “in the future”, I’d wager it’ll have good content for you by then).

Update: We’re also going to need to look into reforging some of our gear to increase our Mastery - sculder posted a thread aimed at assisting with that.

Enjoy (re)learning a lot of how to play your class! =)
