I currently play a Prot Pally. I've only recently hit 70, and my gear is not great.
My question is, with all the changes in both Prot and Ret spec, which should I choose? I want to do better damage for grinding till WOTLK hits (and after), but I also want to be able to tank a 5-man or two.
All the hype ret is getting, and the massive damage I see going on all around me, I want a peice of the pie. But I'm always asked to tank stuff as well. I'm torn.. Which should I choose? (anxiously awaiting dual-specs, lol)
Not because prot is bad or anything but because of these reasons:
a. it's easier to be a undergeared dps than a undergeared tank*
b. you can PvP and get some stuff that way
c. I doubt many isntaces will be run just prior to wrath
d. Dual spec in wrath So just pick up the odd piece of prot gear on your way
