i think out of all tanks, prot pally has the sh#ttiest DPS. take ages to solo a boss or kill a rare spawn in Lion's land, Blood DK and Guardian Druid kill so much faster.

Blood DKs and Bears (and probably Monks) are probably the worst tanks to compare to since they get two-handers, which means higher base damage than a shield-bearer's one-hander. That said, it's been stated by Blizz that Prot Pallies are intended to use Insight to survive, Truth to do damage. Wanna kill faster as a Prot Pally? Change Seals.

The dps increase from SoT isn't really much...

It all comes down to vengeance as far as prot dps is concerned.

Can do some fun things with alot of vengeance and battle healer though!

As my only tank, I've found few quest related fights where I can't gather a bunch of mobs with this toon and mow them down, ending up with almost full health. Which to me is the goal anyway. If you want to whine that a bear could take down the mob(s) x seconds faster, go ahead. My thinking is the mob(s) are dead and my pally tank is still standing. To me, that is SCORE and more than good enough.

Lower your level to 80, and get MOP boe blues.

Your dps will go through the roof.

Admittedly true, but it does still put out more damage than Insight, which was my point. Righteousness, I think, is stronger for Prot single-target than Truth is now, isn't it?

I remember a time when tanking wasn't about DPS. It was about using abilities that generate threat and mitigation.

Good times.

PS: I miss Holy Shield. Watching my shield have a sudden glow of gold then hearing a chain of loud "THUNKS" as I block a multitude of incoming attacks.

And what's changed? You're still using abilities that generate threat and you're still mitigating. Infact you have more control over your mitigation.
