With the advent of fantastic new prot talents such as Hammer of the Righteous and Touched by Light, are we going for a spell power 1-hander or are we making a jump to a Tanking or Dps 1-hander now when we tank?
I imagine that the most likely answer is that we'll be using a different one depending on the situation. If we're multi-target tanking (more than 3 mobs since hammer hits 1 target + 2 nearby targets), we'll still equip whatever spell power hammer/sword we have to generate threat for all targets while whacking and sealing our focus, where as if we're tanking a single target, like a boss with no ads, we'll switch to a DPS or tanking 1-hander to generate a large amount of threat thru Divine Storm's brother-from-another-mother talent, Hammer of the Righteous (maybe do some decent damage too). This seems like it wouldn't be too difficult, just macro a weapon switch, no prob. Wonder if this is how Blizzard intends us to tank?
Also ties to the whole debate about prot being viable in pvp now. We focusing on a 1 hander with 150 something dps for big Hammer of Right damage (as well as some nicer reckoning procs)?
Just musing, thoughts?
