    Reckoning?

    Did they actually change it? They changed Reckoning?!

    Gives you a 10% chance after blocking or being hit by any damaging attack that the next 4 weapon swings within 8 sec will generate an additional attack.

    Am I missing something here?

    But those attacks can still be parried, right?

    I had to check this, but yeah, you are indeed right It's only ranks 1-4 that act like it did before, but rank 5 gives you a chance to proc reckoning when you block, too. Now it's got atleast some usability

    Yes, they can. However, since there are no crushing blows anymore it's not such a big issue if a boss parries your attack. This will also help you build even more agro.

    Well, you can cap out expertise pretty easy.

    my problem with it that we probably gonna use corruption as a tanking seal which does no extra damage on extra attacks. However they buffed OHWS to 10% which is a very nice change. I don't know if it would be practical to take 2 pure dps 5 pointer talents.

    the parry makes little difrence now since a pally will use a much slower MH the boss will parry less over all right

    With combat expertise and the corruption glyph you will already have 16 expertise. Pick up a few items that boost it and you get capped pretty easy.

    If you happen to be scryer, which I'm not... but there are some other prot items and/or the shard of contempt which gives you expertise.

    PS.: the shard's proc is now useful to prot too

    we can switch to SoR/SoB for the reckoning procs
    since you have no "chance" to proc SoCorr/SoV, but it procs no matter what, it shouldn't be a problem keeping it up

    Re: Reckoning?

    1st off, you don't need 15% parry reduction, but 5.6% (or according to some sources 9%)

    Seal dancing is ofcourse a possibility, but spending valuable gcd and mana on them makes it much less appealing.

    16 expertise gives you 4% parry reduction, 3.9 rating gives you 1 expertise (or 0.25% reduction) the shard alone pumps you up to 6.8%.

    5.6%
    that's dodge. boss parry rates are higher than boss dodge rates
