I am a long time paladin, and one thing I love most about it is that as a paladin I have access to two separate "sword and board" specs, holy and protection. Healing is my first love, and most of my good gear is for my healing activities (exclusively 5-man heroic, no raiding for me). However, I would very much like to do my general dailies/questing in my protection gear.
The trouble is that for some reason I'm having a very difficult time killing anything in a somewhat efficient manner. I don't tank for dungeons because I love to heal, so my "tanking" spec is just for doing dailies, etc. Is there some sort of special talent build I can use to maximize my damage output for this type of activity? Max survivability isn't a must, and obviously I'm not going to be doing 20,000 dps in a tanking spec, but that's alright with me.
Would something like maxing out hit and expertise caps help? A particular talent build? A different rotation of sorts? Simply using DPS gear instead but keeping my tanking spec for the sword and board style?
I know this isn't a normal type of thing, but it's what interests me and I'm just putting it out there to look for some advice from the populace here which I've found to be rather helpful in the past with my healing questions.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
