Forums: Index World of Warcraft Any advice on playing a Retribution/Protection Paladin???

I have been playing a Retribution spec. Palladin, and loving it, now I am tanking, and having some issues. (I am now dual-spec.)

Are there any recommendations for how to play as a tank better? , and yes I have read quite a bit on

Also, are there any ways to get better armor and weapons other than dungeons. I need the best sword and shield I can blacksmith, buy, or otherwise acquire. Thanks so much.

I'm no expert, but as a general rule, DPS plate wearers need +Str on their gear, but tank plate wearers need +Stam (not sure about DKs, tho). If you're doing dungeons, you should be accumulating   Pvecurrency-valor [Valor points] and   Pvecurrency-justice [Justice points] which can be used to buy good gear at PvE vendors near the Honor vendors. Also, a few slots can be filled by good BoE gear from AH. Lastly, a few good pieces can be crafted if you have the right profession. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 6 Aug 2013 5:25 PM Pacific
