    I do not know the exact numbers these days, but it was something like 25k-ish with M0 gear.

    Ofc you NEED the shield uptime if you do higher content, no one said anything different, as I already said in the post you quoted.
    No, its not a fact... Again, its quite literally the opposite, its a mathematical fact that using WoG is the wrong decision, with 2 exceptions...You will die in the next global or you have so much gear and haste that you can sustain 100% uptime on sotr and use the the extra HP on WoG.... This is not up for debate bro.

    Doesn't matter they're still wrong. And from what you quoted... No, you can absolutely not play any tank at the moment for mythic raiding.
    Play paladin or monk and you are hindering the raid, which not many will do at that level.

    Paladin is middle of the pack, not bad, not op and it have its moment.
    On top of that, protadin is by far, BY FAR the most fun tank to play atm. There is even rumors sotr is bugged and does not apply the armor reduction as it should.

Its a shame,since DT is op,but venthyr is so fitting for a blood knight (plus I will retri in arena and venthyr is good for that aswell)
    What I ended up doing too, the blood move is still fun and the teleport too

    I know it.
    I looked at the defensive side of both abilities, not the offensive. If you just look at those 2, it's obvious that WoG is stronger -as long- as you do not take incredible dmg in a short time - namely: lower content or solo'ing content (dungeons/raids). See below.

    Then we simply have to disagree here, buddy. You look at content where it is obviously (I even agreed you on that part) important to have a high SoTR uptime, I look at situations where you do not take as much dmg - lower content, or solo'ing content (dungeons/raids).

    When solo'ing dungeons or raidbosses, you do not have someone in your back that heals you - you have to either reduce your taken dmg or heal yourself, which is exactly the situation where you have to see how much dmg sotr negates.

    Who the fk cares about you solo'ing some old raids? Like seriously? You dont even need gear for that, at all, or even abilities. So whats the point?
    For anyone actually playing current content, regardless if its lfr or mythic, will do it wrong if they press wog, like i've explained.

    Who said old raids? C'mon mate, you do not even try, do you?
    If soloing myths, no, you can not ignore using WoG. Looks like your brain is lagging quite hard, if you are still arguing it like this. Once again - I agree with harder content, but not on easier.

    even in situations where you dont take much damage what is the value of healing yourself (when youre not taking dmg as you said) as opposed to using on of your best dmg abilities?

    At this point you must just be trolling.

    I've been pally tanking since WOTLK. I loved it, felt like I always had something to do, damage was decent and plenty of defensive buttons.

    Now I haven't played in a very long time, I think maybe MoP, and I now lots has changed.

    I hit 60 playing ret and got a few pieces and tried to tank a normal. I've gotta say, it felt like... off. Maybe I'm not doing things right, but I really wanted to get other peoples opinions. Especially if you played during WOTLK and through to shadowlands experiencing all the changes.

    If you have any tips or maybe good guides (I don't even know who has good guides anymore).

    Thanks,
    Nybras - Paladin on Shadow Council
    Sorry had to laugh a lot first. have played paly since Wotlk. and maybe stopped in MoP....thats 3 expansions. Since then there has been WoD,Legion,BFA. so that is a very long time not to have played a paladin tank :S. Funny choice of words there.

    But yeah, we have had a lot removed in years. Shadowlands did bring some stuff back though. Believe it has been worse.

    How does it feel off to you? check icy veins and wowhead guides for best tips, rotations etc. But again what feels off dps?

    I think you should realize that it is no more pull whole horde's ( no pun intented) of enemy's and survive stuff. Gear factors in a lot. But this expansion also has mob's with ability's you should counter or interupt etc. Or you get hit very hard.

    Paladins ( my main alt is a prot paladin since.....launch :S). have in my eyes not be nerfed but corrected over the expansions. We have always been very strong in self heals and a lot of shielding, extra utility spells. But it was also the most easy to handle tanks. Believe me i tanked paladin and gaurdian and blood in raids. ( pala, druid on mythic).
    While we as paladins are still strong. They did balanced our self heal. ( was way to OP in BFA).

    Only thing i feel is off is the same thing my balance druid has. They both have extra powers ( holy power, and eclipses). And for some reason....they feel not in the right place. There is no ...flow you can find in gaining it and using it.

    This has nothing to do with trolling, at all.
    If going solo, you obviously have to heal yourself sometimes, no? You can't tell me you solo mythics without using WoG, at all. I'd even say that you do not even try to solo anything.

    Prot Paladins do a lot of damage.

    They are not the best tank.

    soloing mythics was never part of your original argument. but super nice try. You stated it as "most times better" to use WoG over SoTR unless youre taking "burst damage". That makes no sense anyway because you should always be using SoTR for the damage and DR benefit and only use WoG when you take burst damage as it heals more the more health youre missing. So using WoG more often is pointless unless you're constantly low, even then you should have almost perfect uptime on SoTR. You dont understand the class at a fundamental level but want to solo a mythic dungeon, have fun with that.

    Paladins haven't been fun in generally since wotlk it was the best class design time.

    A statement made can be used for multiple situations. As some of you did not want to accept that "this may be used like this" I said where it IS used, but still it's said "no, not used, u bad" which is objectively wrong.
    You obviously did not read all of my answers, otherwise you'd exactly know that I know how to play it. Maybe open your mind and try to read? Would help you in the future.

    And why do you ignore dungeons? There WILL be a time when people will try to solo certain raid bosses, this was always the case - and when this is actually happening, it will be needed to use WoG, which is kinda obvious, huh? Same as Mythic dungeons right now.

    Nobody cares about solo content but keep moving the goalpost there buddy.
