***All stuff taken from previous posts from various people from various places, myself included.***
As I have said many times before I am not going to take credit for something I didn't do myself. Credit goes to the people at Maintankadin. This is why I provide links and say "Taken from Maintankadin" and have "***All stuff taken from previous posts from various people from various places, myself included.***"
The purpose of the sticky is to provide answers to all the frequent questions that pop on the forum, in a nice easy place to find instead of having to search. I provide links where I got all the info. I just wanted to clear that up so you don't assume I am the one coming up with all of this.
Some talents will change depending on fight mechanics.
All have pluses and minuses. Take which ever you like more.
What ever floats your boat really.
Sacred Shield is your go to here. It is better to prevent damage then to heal it. Also no HoPo = good.
Unbreakable Spirit will be your overall go to. Hand of Purity should be used on a per boss basis depending on mechanics.
Holy Avenger = Max survivability.
Sanctified Wrath = Max DPS
Divine Purpose = Okay
Execution Sentence = Max DPS
Holy Prism = Max DPS for AoE
Light's Hammer = Good raid cooldown
For a single-target DPS configuration, the recommendation is:

There really isn't a hard and fast rotation anymore per se. Meaning there is no 9393 sort of stuff.
CS - Crusader Strike
J - Judgement
AS - Avenging Shield
Cons - Consecration
L90 - Level 90 talent
AS+ - Grand Crusader Proc
HW - Holy Wrath
ShoR - Shield of the Righteous (bite me it's an old habit)
^WB - Weakened Blows
^SS - Sacred Shield
ES - Execution Sentence
HotR - Hammer of the Righteous
If the fight has a strict DPS requirement you should use the Max DPS priority. Otherwise using the Highest survivability + DPS priority is your go too.
Optimal HoPo Gen + DPS:
CS > J > AS+ > Cons > L90 > AS > HW > ShoR
Max DPS (doesn't worry about optimal HoPo gen)
CS > J > Cons > ES > AS > HW > ShoR
Highest survivability + DPS:
^WB > CS > J > AS+ > Cons > ^SS > HW > ShoR
Try to refresh Sacred Shield at it's last tick or so. Aim for 80 - 90% uptime.
Switch to Seal of Righteousness.
Use AS, Cons, HW, and HotR in some sort of logical way and you will be fine.

Overall you should always be using Seal of Truth. If you need to worry about AoE situations switch to Seal of Righteousness.
There is somewhat of a caveat to Seal of Truth though. If DPS in a fight is ABSOLUTELY, 500%, without a shadow of a doubt, not an issue. OR if you again ABSOLUTELY, 500%, without a shadow of a doubt need a little extra healing, using Seal of Insight may be a good idea.

Parry to Dodge ratio
/run d=GetDodgeChance() p=235.5*d/65.631440-((235.5/65.631440)*5.01-3.76) DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Ideal parry for current dodge: "..string.format("%.2f",p))

Very Highly Recommended
PowerAura's - Great for tracking Holy Power, Procs, Cooldowns.
Tidy Plates + Threat Plates - Allows you to easily see what mobs you have aggro one while AoEing.
Skada - A lighter version of Recount that also covers Threat. Why use Omen + Recount when you can use one addon for both.
Deadly Boss Mods (Or some boss mod) - If you don't know why you need this....
Omen - Threat meter...rather self explanatory.
Recount - Damage meter. Plain and simple.
Vengeance Status - Lets you see how much AP you are getting from Vengeance, without having to open up your character page.
Acheron - A death log...plain and simple.
EavesDrop - A much easier to read combat log. If you have a death log like Archeron you have a less of a use for this.

They couldn't give me an exact reason as to why the OP was deleted. They just chalked it up to a new forum/site and just some confusion. They told me I was free to start a new topic and have the old one deleted. So I asked them to delete it.
