hey. nice guide. but should i use JotC before Seal of Command as lvl 34?
JotC increases holy damage taken by the target, and SoComm/JoComm deals holy damage so yea, you should JotC first. Won't be the end of the world if you don't, but you will lose some DPS.
I have a question about leveling: I rolled a Pally mostly to be a healer, but leveling in Holy isn't great and Pursuit of Justice looks really sweet, so I figured I could go into Ret just up to SoComm and Pursuit of Justice then go into Holy after that. So like this then all Holy after that for better healing in groups. Is this a good idea or should I level Prot with fast weapon + SoR if I want to be healing in groups? Talent build suggestions appreciated!
I would not put any points in Improved Judgement of the Crusader. The damage increase is so little, you benefit way more from the increased parry chance.
If you are using SoC it should be as slow as possible.
Is Improved Seal of the Crusader really that bad? The main reason I went with it is for when I'm using just Seal of the Crusader on myself, e.g. to get in a few swings between heals in a group. Or is SoComm just better for this anyway?
What about Improved Blessing of Wisdom? BoW on myself is great both for healing and DPS (more mana -> more JoComm -> more damage), and great on mana users in groups.
Slower weapons give it a higher proc chance, right? I read somewhere that the proc is 7ppm, so my per-swing proc chance would be roughly weapon_speed/8.57, meaning about 37.3% proc chance on a 3.20 weapon, is this correct? (8.57 is 60/7)
Improved Seal of the Crusader increases the holy damage against the judged target by 161 instead of 140. It's like you had 21 spelldamage more with the highest rank of SotC. It's not really much. Mind that you don't get that damage flat. You have to add it to your spelldamage to calculate the damage you would deal.
It's not bad but putting points into it means removing points from other talents that are more useful if you go either 20/0/31 or 21/0/30. If you are on your own you should not have mana problems at all.
That's exactly what I was thinking. I take the Consecration and then I move to protection. I'm also planning on taking engineering and enchanting.
I tend to finish up the ret tree first as I'm leveling, but only because I love vengeance for the pew, and repentance for PvP.
