Now that Shield Wall doesn't require a shield is there ANY benefit of macroing to a shield?
- My guess would be get rid of shields -
And while we are at it - do we have ANY dps loss while we reflect or shield wall with a 2-hander?
There is no dps loss in using Shield Wall or Spell Reflect anymore. The shield can still be useful, if you are getting focus by physical dps classes, like Rogue, other Warriors or Hunters. Good Ret paladins for example always macroed Shields for when being focused by Physical dps classes.
If you want to play at 100% you should still have a shield macro, but no need to macro it into Shieldwall or Reflect any longer.
