Who is Synthaxx? I've never seen him post as a Pally mod...

Tanking with the Blessing of Kings - The TankSpot Guide to the Protection Paladin - Updated for Patch 5.4!
Ahem. Let's stay on topic please.
Righteousness, Light, Justice.
The game just isn't currently designed to support it. It creates potential problems such as:
- A Prot paladin competing with a Frost DK or Ret paladin over gear, meaning there isn't enough DPS plate to go around.
- A Prot paladin considering a tier set with dodge and parry on it to be "garbage" because it doesn't stack all haste.
- A Prot paladin looking at a Ret 2pc set bonus that she normally wouldn't touch because now the stats aren't that bad either.
In a world where tanking plate didn't exist or every loot system used the personal LFR one or 100% efficient reforging then it might work.
We understand that having a lot of haste feels fun and visceral and is more dependable than dodge and parry. We'll try to come up with a solution that keeps that in mind.
As said by Ghoscrawler (I don't know how to make those fancy quotes)
Yeah I was a bit disheartened when I saw that, as it was in reply to my quote/suggestion. But, I've been posting there diligently and some very interesting topics have come up.
Really, I wholeheartedly support the idea of leaving haste as is, but giving D/P a coefficient that also provides haste. That way, we can increase TDR without the direct cost to our smoothing.
Also, really like the counterpoint of just getting rid of tank gear (AND HOLY PLATE) to clear up the loot table, much like there is no "tank leather", and just having haste and/or crit help with avoidance and mitigation.
But, I don't see either of those things happening

The whole dodge/parry/miss debacle really goes against blizzard's active mitigation thang anyhoo - it's its antithesis imo.
EDIT: oh before i forget the hit/exp kneck can drop for us on a gold coin on protectors, yes?

Xothic - Prot Paladin - Expired at the end of 5.1, returned start of 5.4, left again. Returned again, left again, returned again. You know how it is.
I enjoy how my drunken rants ending with various paladin-y words, has become a common thing emulated by others.
