Even more information on taking a beating

So you want to take a beating, do you?  Well, you’ve come to the right place.  Byron "Messiah" Mudry continues to walk you through the basics of playing a protection based Paladin, or Tankadin as they are commonly called in the World of Warcraft.  In this second part of his Tankadin guide he explains Seals, Blessings, Threat, and Attack Rotation. These form the basis of being able to hold threat from the rest of your group, so check it out. Return later this week for even more information, including all the macros that will make tanking easier as a Paladin.

Before starting a pull you should make sure that you have all your buffs up and have Seal of Vengeance active. Setup in the proper place to pull the creatures to and prep a consecrate, then wait a split second and send your Avengers Shield (AS) at the target. While the creatures are on their way to you prep Holy Shield (HS) and get ready to attack.

You can find all the details in part two of our Paladin Tanking Guide.
