Forum Guidelines - Please Read
Welcome to the World of Warcraft discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system (http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/blog/930468) can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (http://eu.battle.net/en/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The World of Warcraft forums are for discussion of topics directly related to World of Warcraft The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, Battle.net or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.2
Therapy Lounge for Healers - The Legion Edition!
On the 14th of March 2012 Valonia made the longest running topics on our beloved Healing boards. I don't think anyone could have imagined that at the present day, this topic would still be active. And since I can't decribe it better then Valonia did, I'm shamelessly going to copy / paste her welcome post as it describes the Lounge perfectly. ... Ladies and gentleman! I bid thee welcome to the new Therapy Lounge for Healers - The Legion Edition! Lets keep this awesome place going, and see how far we'll get this time :D.

Making a Guide?
Here in the class forums, players often put together awesome guides to help the rest of the community. However, due to the high number of sticky request we receive each day, these guides sometimes fall off the front page before we can sticky them. If you have just posted a guide or if you’d like to nominate a guide here on the European forums to be stickied, please send an email to the Community team, including a link to the guide you'd like stickied, at: CMTeamEU-WoW@Blizzard.com Alternatively, guide writers can help us spot their threads by putting [Guide] in the title :)0
Buff Divine Purpose? Pretty Pls?
Honestly, Crusade is complete cookie cutter nonsense - just like how Double Bacon was for Holy back in WoD. Ret's gameplay is centered entirely on this one talent, which is completely absurd and goes against the whole point of the talent system. You either take Crusade and get comfy with those AV-duration relics or you can kiss your deeps goodbye. I doesn't help that, personally, I really don't like having most of my dps cramped into a tiny burst window. Whenever you have a playstyle like this, it just feels like what you press outside of the window is pointless. Now, if this was a design that was baked into the class by nature, like it is for Arms Warriors, I wouldn't complain and just play something different. But this isn't the case here at all. This playstyle is created entirely through ONE single talent that ought to have 2 other equal-ish choices. So Blizz, can we please get those alternatives? Or at least one? Holy Wrath is hot garbage, so can we get a buff to Divine Purpose at least? Buffing the proc rate and/or making it also boost the damage of the free HP spender would be the obvious, if boring, choice. But what about giving it a redesign, making it so for each HP you spend, the remaining CD of AV is reduced by 0.5 seconds? That would give us two polar opposite playstyles (frequent small burst vs infrequent huge burst) to choose from0
Greetings fellow Paladins! I'd like to ask for your help in a matter that has been giving me headaches from time to time when I am tanking Nighthold. This problem of mine does not show up all the time, but when it does it makes tanking this specific boss a nightmare. Basically, my problem with this boss is that during the swap phase, there are times when my taunt, Hand of Reckoning, for some reason refuses to snap aggro away from the other tank, and I often need to use the ability two or three times until it finally does what it should and turn the boss on me. At first I thought that I am merely targetting one of the adds by mistake, but even after clicking on the boss multiple times or dropping and re-targeting him it did not seem to make taunt work again. When this happens Taunt goes on CD, I see the animation going through but I just simply do not gain aggro. I have this problem on this specific boss only, taunt works on all the others as it should. Am I alone with this problem? Some help would be greatly appreciated.6
Dusting off my hpala
Hey guys, I want start playing my hpala again. My focus will be mostly PUG-raiding, keystones and a bit of pvp most likely random bgs, daily rbg and a few arena wins for cap. Been looking around guides and mostly it's just confusing, they either contradict eachother or state odd things such as 4pc set not very important hence this post. 1. I'm lowlevel geared, are there any items worth farming that greatly increases heal output? Like for my warrior you really want the DoS/CoF combo. 2. Crit cap. What is it? How much is minimum recommended crit? 3. What is the best way to meter-pad in raids? I know this is a stupid question but since I'm pugging when some average puggers stands in fire and wipe us the first thing getting looked at are the meters. Can hpalas pad meter to exceed raid healers like dudus? 4. Does it get better? When I played this at legion launched it felt like every other healer had much easier time putting up bigger numbers. Is this a scaling thing? 5. What are some popular 2s comp for hpaladin? I take it the usual for 3s are good, tsg or some castercleave. Think that was it, for now. Thanks guys.5
Draught of Souls BiS?
Hello guys, According to icy-veins did I get -super- lucky today and dropped the item "Draught of Souls" on ilvl 900 from the Nightborne Chest(Weekly Quest). Now, reading its effect and doing simplistic math, it tells me that at the cost of standing still and not being able to do anything for 3 seconds, I'll do about 1,8M damage. Now, I am wondering if that(+the ~1,1k haste given) is actually making it eligible for declaring it a BiS trinket over Eye of Command and Faulty Counter-Measure even. Is 1,8M damage over 3 sec that much, am I just missing something? I am relatively new to paladins so I haven't got so much clue, I just recently rerolled. Any feedback that could shed light unto why it is considered a BiS trinket by icy-veins would be well appreciated. Thank you in advance!14
Wish we had more of a combat system thing as paladin. Find it rather annoying to be not able to 100% rotate a dps kind of thing, Always getting a few seconds where everything is on cooldown, while as druid, got plenty of stuff to keep doing something (resto druid i mean, specially with the feral/guard/moonkin talent) why don't other healers get a dmg like talent ? Not only when in dungeons there's moments you can't heal anything cause nobody loses health, and especially for WQ, i like playing healer that has moderate dps tbh Can't we have "Avenging Crusader" as a normal talent instead of a pvp talent ? Prety Please ? :) Would really love Avenging Crusader as a pve talent. i'm just drueling at it tbh :D7
Hia folks. I'm trying to figure out a problem: I still have only 2 followers, Lady Lladrin and Lord Maxwell, and 1 type of troops. And the only mission I can get is "Tip the scales". This, despite the fact that I've finished "Highmountain", am well into Suramar and have started all the others. My artifact weapon is also fully upgraded... Meanwhile, my DH had 5 followers by the time she was 108, with multiple types of missions available, but has only finished Storheim and did little else. Same happened to my hunter. What I am missing on the paladin?!2
Templar's Verdict animation change?
How about change Templars Verdict animation to Final Verdict, maybe through glyph? I really loved the hammer themed animation and the sound of the Final Verdict ability in WoD. Its not a general change in the game, just for fun. If you, my fellow paladins are agree with me, please press a like, or just leave some comments. If a dev reads this, please tell us about the possibility of such change. Thank you. For Azeroth, for the Light!4
Ret DPS help
Hey guys! Just wanted to make a quick topic where maybe I can be given some tips and food for thought about maximizing my dps as a ret paladin. Currently I do not feel like I am performing well enough, I swaped from protection to retri like a month ago and haven't played the class since BC, so I am a pleb. I have to say I really do not enjoy playing with Crusader strike and Blade of Wrath. Something about those two spells and their RNG baseline doesnt sit right with me. I am not a huge fan of the current layers on top of layers in this version of the game, since they are pretty much in everything. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/darkspear/Dqdopop/simple here you can check my basic set up for fights, where I do swap a single trinket (I use the Scorpion trinket ilvl 900 on AOE fights + the Memento. https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/16682348/latest Some logs as well. Now my dilemma is which trinkets to use and peruse. Any tips on which trinkets do you think are good for my specific rotation preference and current gear are welcome! I do not have the legendary cloak atm, so thats why I am sticking with my zeal + DH. Altho I have to ask, how much better is fires of justice and/or Blades of Wrath and why? I sometimes find the rotation a little bit chaotic with those procs. Pretty much the trinkets I have are at such ilvl that to me, they are baseline almost the same. I have Horn of Valor ilvl900; Claw of the Scorpid ilvl900; Might of Krosus ilvl 905; Memento of Angerboda ilvl890; Convergence of Faiths ilvl900; Faulty Countermeasures ilvl875. Any tips on some combos for specific bosses in Nighthold + talent choices is really welcome! Another thing I wanted to ask about are my stats. At the moment I am sitting at 30% haste thus sticking with my zeal as well, on top of the preference of it. My crit and vers seem low to me tho. What is like a soft cap on haste? Does having lower haste mean I have to necessary switch to Fires of Justice? At what % does zeal no longer become a close follow up to Fires of Justice? Overall I'd love to hear some pointers on stat weights and some soft caps, because at the moment I do not feel like I am hitting hard enough while my wings are down. Maybe I need some new relics on my Wep, but so far no luck sadly. Thank you for your time and the probably stupid questions, but I think any replies will be helpful! Cheers!3
