Hey everyone,

Sorry to those hoping for something to read today, but I’ve been fairly busy. I’ve been working on something for Icy Veins lately, and it’s taking up a lot of my time. Combining this with my school work and family being around, I didn’t have time to write anything good, so this is just a quick post that I don’t even plan on editing.

I’m working on some Protection Paladin spreadsheets that help me analyze logs to allow me to help show the loss of damage and survivability when you use the incorrect cooldowns, spells or hold off casting a proc. I’ll also be working on a Holy Paladin cooldown tracker to better see the effectiveness of their abilities. A Ret Paladin spreadsheet will be my final project and likely the least important to me, since I don’t play ret and I am not known to advise others on ret. I may ask for help from Auriel to set it up completely.

Tomorrow I will come back with a longer post. For now, I’ll put in the top blogs and podcasts that I enjoy.

Top 3 blogs I know of:

Sacred Duty – Theck, who is behind a lot of the work in the Prot Paladin community has his own blog, and often talks about the math behind every paladin

Monplayswow – Monica is my friend who found my blog on Day 1, I was excited to see I already had a follower not from my usual advertised areas, so we quickly came to talk about blogs. Her blog is fairly playful, and talks about her personal experiences.

Azeroth Life – Feirah seems to write about the vanity of the game, Mounts, Pets and Transmogs. It’s all there and it’s all pretty nice. I started looking through her blog only recently, but it is a very nice outlook on those subjects.

Top 2 Podcasts I know of:

ConvertToRaid – I began listening to them from being at my cousin, Velmathris’ house. They cover a lot of good subjects about WoW, and it’s one of the better podcasts I like to have in the background when I play games. I’m also in AIE where Koltrane and Pat Krane used to be in.

The Instance – Also from AIE, Scott Johnson and pals (Sorry I don’t have time to look you all up!) talk about WoW in a very laid back and entertaining way. It’s sorta like being at the table with your buds and listening to them chat about the stuff you want to hear. It’s perfect.

Thanks for reading, I hope you look forward to the future posts. Leaving feedback or suggestions is appreciated. As a final reminder (and shameless plug), I am the Paladin Moderater on Icy Veins, one of the leading sites for all sorts of WoW Guides. I recommend checking them out as you main source of class knowledge.

I can be contacted at Fouton@live.com, messaging me through Icy Vein’s forums, or by finding me in-game on Fouton-Argent Dawn, Eiliar-Argent Dawn, or Deathfouton-Earthen Ring.

  1. Thanks for the plug! πŸ˜€ I also look forward to seeing the Holy Pally stuff, not that I play Teia much at the moment as I have resigned myself to the idea of a permanent main! Still, she is decent enough ilvl for SoO entry at least! Think I’ll be back to the grindstone again this weekend, but this time it’ll be after secrets.. ugh. The first few bosses in SoO refuse to drop them for me, so back to ToT for me I guess 😦

      No problem, thanks for yours! The guide will mostly just look at a specific fight (and eventually all fights) when you submit logs and tell you how you could have better used your CDs. Icy Veins has its own holy paladin guide, a SoO style guide for tips and tricks on specific fights (on forums), and I also helped respond to someone with tips on how to start playing a holy paladin (Its called Noob’s guide to holy paladin, in forums). Those are pretty much all the tools you will need for now, and when I set up that program you can really shine, since healing becomes all about CD usage πŸ™‚ I used to love holy paladins myself but I’ve always been demanded to tank, and with the Eternal Flame addition to holy I just stopped enjoying it, so I went prot. Anyways, that got long, hope you have fun when you pick up the paladin πŸ™‚

      • I tried replying but my phone decided that wasn’t going to happen! Yeah I really enjoyed holy pally healing in wrath, but things have changed a bit since then, but luckily I have worked on her enough to be able to enter SoO at least!

    Wrath is when I started πŸ™‚ That was easily my favourite time. Sure BoL was op transferring 100% healing, but when they nerfed it, paladins were still tons of fun. I don’t like this new thing where Eternal Flame (supposed to be a play style choice since it’s a talent) is mandatory for 95% of situations and is the spell which paladins now focus on maximizing 😦

    • Yeah, I found that I would use Eternal Flame, Holy Shock, Radiance and ummm, forget off the top of my head, but the cone one.. but I went for a raid healing type of deal – something different from only being tank heals in wrath. I just don’t feel as useful as I used to, and while Holy Light spamming was laughed at, I enjoyed it. I enjoyed Holy Lights, Holy Shocks, Divine if it was absolutely necessary, blowing my cd’s to help the raid and survive, as well as for some fights use the glyph of HL and the melee swing advantages of wisdom or light to either heal or mana up and spam HL on the tank while raid healing the melee… Festergut was my favourite boss in ICC for that haha.

      • deathfouton says:

        Yea, I loved the concept of meleeing for mana. It was a lot of fun to time casts to have a short enough delay between them to melee before casting again.

        Easily my favourite time to be a holy paladin. I still remember the ToC25 healing trinket everyone wanted, and how I did weekly ToC25 pugs when my guild was in ICC so that I could give them to my raiders (we either reserved it or made sure we were guildies only for healers). One week we had 4 holy paladins and my brothers holy priest, it was hilarious.
