That attitude disappeared when the Battlemap Hide Helm dropped. It's leather and yet it is still awesome. We made an exception for this item. Then Dalronn's Jerkin dropped, so we made an exception for that too. And as you can see, wow gold players started making exceptions all over the place. The moral of the story is: If it's an upgrade, take it! Don't be put off by the casters; don't be brought low by the Warlocks, Mages, Shadow Priests, the Shamans and Druids at that.We've never claimed to be an expert on the Paladin class; we're just an enthusiastic amateur. Still, we've been PUG'ing with Grim like an addict for about a week and a half now, so we can tell you from personal experience that to power through Heroics without having to let people drop all the time. See the following tips:The first tip for you is that you at least need two hundred mana every 5second, with Blessing of Wisdom up. If you run out of mana, you run out of answers. The group dies and you feel silly. Make sure you use Divine Plea all the time! Whenever it comes up, use it. It is your most valuable tool. If you have a trinket that grants spell-power, use it when you have Divine Plea going. Also, keep Sacred Shield up on the tank at all times, that extra 50% chance to crit with Flash of Light is invaluable. It provides a good amount of mitigation as well.The second tip is crit chance.
