does prot pally have the least DPS
01/10/2013 05:58 PMPosted by GrôgnárdBlood 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!

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?
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.
01/11/2013 07:30 PMPosted by HolysaviorI remember a time when tanking wasn't about DPS. It was about using abilities that generate threat and mitigation.
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.
