After a long break from talking Paladins, it's time for a return of Semi-Hardcore. In this issue Byron “Messiah” Mudry provides the low down on all the upcoming Paladin tanking changes. With Patch 4.0.1 coming soon, and Cataclysm hard on its heals, it is critical that Paladin tanks understand the changes that are in store for them. This editorial puts all the changes to key abilities, how Holy Power works, and the new tanking rotations all in one place for your viewing pleasure.

Crusader Strike (CS) – This is the same old ability, however since it is just now available to all Paladins and not just Retribution, it is new to us as tanks. It is an instant strike on a short cooldown (currently 4.5 seconds) that causes damage to a single target, applies Vindication, has a chance to proc Grand Crusader, and generates a point of Holy Power.

Check it all out in Semi-Hardcore #4 – Cataclysm Shakes Up Paladin Tanking.
