Ok, so my RL friend is one of the tanks in our core 10 man group. We're 11/16H atm and a hair away from getting Lei Shi down. He had a discussion over trinkets last week with the RLs (MW monk and holy pally, monk is ex-DK tank) and they've been confused by his constant preference for haste over anything else. So they went out and did a bunch of research and talked to some prot pally friends of theirs and came to the conclusion that he's not gearing correctly, is not being flexible enough with his gear choices (specifically trinkets) between different fights, and is not ranking on WoL anywhere near enough. So they've recruited someone to replace him.
They explained everything to me, and I understand where they're coming from, but I obviously want to do everything I can to help him get back on track and to keep that replacement from sticking. I'm an ele/resto sham, though, and I haven't played my prot paladin seriously since late Wrath. Here's his wow-heroes with ranks and logs:
They mentioned to me his JC gems, haste breakpoint, and a couple other things. What can he do to fix these? Based on his damage in logs, is there anything about his rotation or CDs that needs to change to do more damage? Our guild has a lot of people who rank very often on lots of fights, and they see him having 0 ranks to be a serious issue, especially when our main prot warrior has something like 20 ranks. Which fights warrant serious changes to trinkets for a prot pally? Is there a list somewhere that has the optimal trinkets for each fight that we can look at? Based on the logs, are there any CDs (especially damage reductions) that he may be misusing?
Thanks a lot everyone. I really appreciate any and all feedback.
