http://s925.photobucket.com/albums/ad91/kimner/
there is 2 pictures, one of me in combat in a BG, and one in my configuration mode.

Hard modes: Yes, i want to learn more about the hard-modes.

Yes, i dont mind sitting out of raids that i have been helping progressing on.

playing time: if im not raiding i am either talking with people, or playing tf2 and l4d2.

buffs(flasks ect): flask of the frost wyrm, baked manta ray(if i dont have any fish feast on me), i always gem and enchant the gear i have once im able to. normally gems.

Specs: i have good experience with holy paladins, as i ahve been reading about paladins around many forums. i chose a holy pala since i love to heal, and i thought being a tank healer would be funnier than being a raid healer, as it is. im not the best in my offspec, which is protection. but i know when to use certian spells when its good to. I'm okay with respecing while in a raid, and it would be great if i still would be able to roll on healing gear(while in prot)

What is the general gearing strategy you follow for your class? Please be as specific as possible.(might be my english that is to bad to get this part, doesnt realy understand what you mean with it, if it's what stats im aiming for it's intellect and spellpower that is first prio).

Job as a healer: I normaly use flash of light if the situation is "calm", or when the tanks doesnt have hard hits on themselves. holy light if the tanks are on low hp(65% and lower), or taking much dmg, as on festergut when he inhales blight.

Forum: http://elitistjerks.com/

professions: JC/mining which doesnt affect me.(at the fact that JC is expensive to lvl)

Combat log: no acces.

No additional things i want to add.

You speak of gemming and enchanting your gear, and yet some of your items aren't enchanted, the boots, the shoulders, the chest piece and the ever more questionable armor enchant on your cloak. "normally gem" doesn't cut it. As for your gems, I don't think I remember a single paladin gemming SP-MP5 in months. Most Paladins tend to gem for a Nightmare's Tear and be done with the meta requirements.

Your gear is fairly alright as a starter kit, except for the things mentioned above.

Experience wise, however - not so much. Having experience, and reading on the forums about the class are two different things, and just having the theory sorted doesn't mean you're ready for hard modes.

You basically got the gearing strategy question right, though.

Mining is far from being an optimal profession for a raider, I'd drop it for something else, and level it on an alt if possible, and level your JC like that, while having a proper raiding profession.

You never mentioned using Beacon of Light or Sacred Shield.

Hey there, just a few things I'd like to add!

Contrary to what Feyri said the holy paladin stat prio is actually Int -> Haste (Until at around 900-1000 without gemming) -> Mp5 -> Crit -> SP.

As for general consumable use, the food you use actually gives me some hope because that's actually the optimal food buff. However, using flask of the frost wyrm is only really the best flask once you reach a certain mana point, which you certainly aren't at right now. I'd suggest you start using Flask of Distilled Wisdom or Int + Stat elixirs if you do not have the flasks available.

Your gear strat at the moment is somewhat disconcerting. You're using Spirit based cloth shoulders when T10 shoulders are so very easy to obtain, why? Your leg enchant is also not good, spirit as absolutely useless for a holy paladin, so I'd suggest you switch to the SP/stam one asap. The blue gem in your helm is also not optimal. Using a nightmare tear in your helm is the best way to go as most of the time there is a 9 SP bonus which is worth picking up, the rest obviously intellect ignoring bonuses which you have portrayed. Grab 16 intellect on bracers enchant too. That along with missing enchants, 10 stats on chest, 23 haste on cloak, tuskarr's vitality on boots etc.

Onto your actual gear at the moment. I put forth to you the question of why did you waste frost badges on buying the trinket, belt and cloak when 2p T10 bonus is a very nice situational cooldown to have? I'd say try and get the T10 helm and shoulders a.s.a.p. I'd also suggest that you get rid of your libram and buy the iLvl 200 one from heroism badges as that is still best in slot. The intellect triumph badge trinket is also a very good starter trinket until BiS trinkets are available to you.

Your spec is questionable, you've chosen to go the 51/5/15 crit spec like so many other paladins, why? A 54/17/0, 51/20/0 or something similar would be far better for raid utility while still putting out maximum throughput within ICC and most certainly in hard modes.

As Feyri also said, you did not mention BoL or Sacred Shield at all, please do explain how you would utiliize these spells in a raid environment.

hokay.

Post  Guest on Sat May 29 2010, 04:10

thanks for most of the info, you've given me ect, il start with BoL and sacred shield, as i always try to keep up at my best and i cleanse when i have the chanse to.
working to get the t10 shoulders just need the emblems and i get myself sanctified shoulders.
the purple gem on my head is from my "old times" :p which was stacking spell power, think that i forgot to change it as i were changing from SP+mp5 to int. Razz
thx for the hint with the flask, ive actually been thinking whose of those 2 was best. and my food choise was wrong, i meant "imperial manta steak" but its more often that i ahve fish feasts than manta steaks Razz
didnt know that a dmg taken reduction was good for me, since when ive been reading on forums ive only seen lines such as "stack intellect, and go 51/5/15 bla bla bla".
may i ask you if this spec is good enough for the 51/20/0 ?
http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?paladin#ilwsMFO1wLlaV,,9742
and it has to be my god damn lazy self that havent enchanted my gear, the armor enchant was kinda wierd too. didnt know i had it o_O(gonna enchant right away)
Did buy the trinket because of the + stats all the 264 gear gives, by the fact that t10 is giving less stats than F.example: gloves.
as you say i could have bought the shoulders tho.

Thank You Smile

Generally I prefer one of these specs:

51/20/0- If you don't have a prot paladin or holy paladin specced for imp devo. I just use the point in blessed hands as a placeholder.
http://www.wowhead.com/talent#sxAzg0osVu0tgdxGzubh

52/17/2 - Same throughput, same utility minus imp devo if covered and a bit of a reduced mana cost on beacon, shields, judgements etc.
http://www.wowhead.com/talent#sxAzgM0sVu0tgdxGzubZM

In that spec you linked you didn't pick up AM, and that's one of the most important cooldowns for something like LK 25 HC.

Considering your lack of experience, and the few answers that needed to be reminded by other people that are generally essential to proving your understanding of the class, plus the fact that even though you mentioned Elitist Jerks - you did not follow their recommendations until after they were suggested by a member of our guild leads me to declining you.

Better luck elsewhere!
