    i think in it's place prot should gain a smaller CD ability.

    Between HA, guardian, and ardent defender, prot hardly needs another 3 min or so CD, i usually find that prot has an issue keeping up with very consistent amounts of damage instead of the quick bursty ones.

    Maybe something that makes you block all attacks and spells for 10 seconds or something?> i dunno

    But we do on live, EF ftw, also it is going to be nerfed in WoD, wich makes no sense to make Shining protector strong if blizz meant to tone down our self heals :S

    that was to make selfless healer and SS stronger, in the form of nerfing the other.

    And we all see how that worked out when they nerfed SS too.

    TLDR, replace the whole tier if you want any choice, cause one will ALWAYS be stronger for prot than the others.

    They do want to tone down tank self healing across the board, however, they also want Prot Pally to have decent self healing, most likely to the point that there is a noticeable difference from other tanks.

    I expect they'll want us to take more damage overall and compensate with our own self-healing like DKs do. Our combined damage negation and healing should be on par with what other tanks can do though. Hopefully it won't be like Firelands in Cataclysm where DKs were really in danger of getting killed unless they played exceptionally well. Having a low floor and high ceiling isn't always a good thing.

    "Item - Paladin T17 Protection 4P Bonus (New) When you block an attack, you have a chance to gain the Defender of the Light effect. Defender of the Light increases your shield block value by 50% for 8 sec. (Approximately procrppm procs per minute)"

    Pretty nice 4 piece. Goes nicely with holy shield too. Looking forward to seeing our 2 piece.

    The problem is we have a shield to fall back on, and they don't. Ergo, DK self-healing should always be above PLD, but I can see PLD being higher than everyone else (Don't know if MNKs get a lot of self-healing. If they do, they I can see them being on par with each other). I don't think there's much disparity atm between tanks based solely on alpha notes, but we really won't know for a while, anyway.
