Now I am relatively new to mop prot. I have already successfully tanked several gold cm's with ease and have tanked heroic garajal. I love stacking haste and me and my healers prefer me using divine purpose over holy avenger.
However I was watching the paragon kill vid of empress and in the first portion of the video its a prot pally pov.
I noticed he is using consecration for single target, which is good if you have the free gcd, but he isn't using avenger's shield unless he gets a grand crusader proc. This was a definite eye-raiser for me as I was under the impression that it was right behind cs and judgement in usage priority. Not only this, but he will sit on it when he does have a free gcd and wait to cast other things.
Grand crusader obviously resets the cd of avenger's shield, so why this rotation?
