    No, it's a powerful mitigation tool, always keep it at 2 charges, and spend one when you have 3.

    It's important to have SoTR when you need it, in case of a dangerous boss ability, if not you will take a lot more damage than you should.

    It's a damage reduction CD that has situational effectiveness and doesn't do tremendous damage; it's best used in conjunction with high incoming damage occasions. Like said you shouldn't be spamming it but rather keeping a charge at least for oh shit moments.

    Never, I'll just save them up for big dmg attacks or mitigation needed attack (Illysanna Ravencrest, God-King Skovald) and always try to have 2 after seraphim comes off cooldown.

    yep! with two judgements reducing its cd, its rarely unavailable. Obviously, with 3 charges, you can save 1 for when you know something is coming, otherwise, im spamming it. also, with sotr reducing avenging wrath, i try to get wings back up as soon as i can too, more dmg. or, if you take the talent that gives you 3 charges instantly, well, there is no need to save anything there if youre saving that cd.

    I don't know all teh ideal talents, if I'm being fully honest here, I havent tanked progression in quite sometime. but even still, with three charges, i find it difficult to imagine, with the different talent choices we have, that one could not mostly spam it, holding on to a charge for when you know you'll need it. but if you really need it, arent you likely to also have a longer cd runnign at that point too??

    Maybe I'm way off, idk

    The simple rule is never sit on 3 charges and try to always have at least one available for big incoming damage. The more you lean a fight the more you'll know when and how to spend them. But don't just mindlessly spam.

    The question was do you spam it. The answer is never yes or you're plying wrong. At least keeping one charge is, by definition, not spamming.

    If we're gonna get super critical here, he didnt give a situation. One could be overgeared, one could be in a 5man, could be in lfr, could be in trivial content, and number of situations where spamming it isn't playing wrong. Also, there are some bosses that exist where they dont hit especially hard, but they hit very fast, in which case spamming it every time its up would be the right thing, to keep the dmg as smooth as possible. Or, just maybe, youre in a situation where you're the off tank, and you wont be tanking the boss for a bit, but you gotta get that dmg in, spam away!

    :P

    Shall you read the spell description before asking such a facile question?

    I spam it, and I rarely use defensive cooldowns properly either. That being said I am a ret and never tank anything above mythic 0 so my gear carries me.

    That sounds like a bad idea. Mitigation is not something you just "spam". If you are not tanking anything important, like a heroic or something - sure, go for it. Other than that? I wouldn't do it.

    I have 11.9 sec recharge for SoR now. Is that enough haste or should I go for more? :>

    This seems like a question someone trying to learn his class would ask.

    Not really. Someone who was trying to learn his class would have at least a basic level of understanding. In all honesty this sounds like trolling.

    Blessed Stalwart
    Your Judgment grants you Blessed Stalwart, increasing the damage and damage reduction of your next Shield of the Righteous by 8%.

    It depends on the fight for me, if I need active mitigation for something specific then I always retain one charge.

    If I don't need the active mitigation for a specific ability then I tend to spam BUT I make use of Blessed Stalwart, so I make sure consecration is up and then use shield of the righteous after each judgment cast.

    So basically: Fuck off from here, read guides somewhere else? Where does that "basic understanding" come from? The game itself certainly doesn't make a great job of teaching you anything.

    But yeah...I usually go to icy veins and read class guides there.

    Now ofc some of you smart asses will say how shit and inaccurate icy veins is. Which brings us right back to "Where to get your basic understanding if this Class forum is also so helpful as in "No. Learn your class"

    What is it that made @Demsi @Master Guns etc be helpful and you and @cetraben so hostile?

    I responded several days after the OP made his post. They never returned. Some people tried to offer advice, they did not come to ask for futher information or to thank the people helping him. The original question shows absolutely no effort to learn his class; nothing in the spell abilities they would read in the spellbook or any guide that they'd find using google would EVER suggest to macro SotR. So yes my suggestion is that this is a troll or someone with no real interest in the class and not worth spending time on. And I am apparently an elitist jerk for calling this as I see it but hey, I don't mind.

    Nah..even on the forum of the guild that calls themselves "Elitist Jerks" they are more friendly than it is often the case here.

    Yeah..it would be nice if people who got advice also say "thank you"...as for not coming back...who knows? Either happy to have had his answer or scared away by hostility.
