To all prot paladins who crossed over

Paladin
Good seeing some regular posters on the old wow forums on here.

For new faces, if you have any questions regarding tanking at level 80 post away.
Fairly new player here, this is my only 80. I've heard from people that in 4.0 reckoning is worth taking, is that true? I was told that before 4.0 it wasn't, why would it be now? Sorry if it's a noob-ish question or something, just wondering.
Yes Reckoning is very worth taking.

Why though, if I may ask?

This thread can probably answer the question better than I can.

But in short it is good now.

Reckoning was one of those talents where you laughed at and skipped and moved on when speccing, but since 4.0.1, Reckoning has become the third most DPS increasing talent after WotL and Sacred Duty. It provides around ~140 DPS per point.
DPS pretty much = threat since 4.0.1 since we no longer really have talents that has tooltips that read "gives large amounts of threat."

There is they why.

Isn't it also based on how much mastery/block you have for it's value to be maxed out?

Yes, but even with only a 50% chance to block, it's still good, and that's only on single targets. When you're tanking multiple targets, it usually has a 100% uptime.
I'll definitely be lurking. But mostly wanted to post this from my phone, wee!
Haha that's really weird. I wonder why it has me wearing my Ret stuff...
