Anyone votes S2, we are not friends. If we already weren’t friends, we’ll become friends so we can stop being friends over this.


Gotta love people voting for S1 because Drathnos told them to.

Remember that S1 was pre-nerf and that the set bonus was bad af. What carried us was everything that got nerfed in S2.

You want raid? Vote S2
You want M+? Vote S3


I voted for it because I like it conceptually (it’s cool to buff a frend), but soon enough I started wishing I had picked S3 instead, given how numerically weak S1 is. Still rather have it over S2 though.

Same for S3. Prot pally would feel better being LESS dependant on Consecration… we got a bonus to make it more meaningful instead. S2 was meaningless, so it’s not like there is a real competition over here.

Extra stacks might not be very fun but it’s handy and it just work well.

Both S2 and S3 tier bonuses have their share of problems, S2 2p being very weak, 4p tying us to crit stacking which isn’t preferable, tier bonus overall providing minimal defensive value. S3 tier suffers from doubling down on awful gameplay loop of sitting in a consecration for benefits which should just be nuked for war within. S1 while being unremarkable in your own dps department provides same throughtput as S2/S3 just in form of mindless vers buffs on your raid while being just fine to play. I’d much rather play s1 tier piece again than have to actively think about proper big consec usage and potentially dropping consec dr uptime to have good big consec value. S2 tier piece was just meh defensively and focused on crit scalling way too much in its power budget.


this feels like a no contest choice for S1 really
consecration focus has been annoying since it became a thing for protection paladin
still people choosing for s3 however, suprising

Why are people voting S1? Seriously? Why would you do that? That bonus is dogsh*t! Trolls!!


so many s1 troll votes…srsly this community, thats why you dont ask the hole community on balancing…let me troll vote on a specc i hate =)

s2 was the best season for prot pala in raid, but yea whatever i guess


You do realize that not everyone raids, right? Whatever you don’t pick = troll vote? Get off your high horse and let people have their own opinions.

if you can’t be bothered to post your griefances but instead chose to just insult you are the trolls

vote what you want to see and maybe say why you want to see it back, this ‘people disagree with me they must be trolls waaaaaah’ is a waste of forum storage space

But if I share my reasoning people might critique it and if they had a point that would hurt my ego!

I see a lot of comments about the power level of the different tier sets, did people not read the original post ?
“Please keep in mind that we’re going to update the power of the set bonuses to match the increased power of the new gear in Season 4, so any bonuses you choose will be tuned to be as strong as any others.”
With this in mind, if you don’t like the consecration play style why would you vote for it ?


The set from season 1 was horrible for tanking. Even s2 or s3 are better for it.

Idk what kind of drugs you’re on but s1 tier piece was 99% uptime no maintanance 6% versa(which is 3% dr) and 5% parry that also gave the versa to a random melee for same duration. While s2 offered a 4k hps Hot as it’s whole defensive value. S2 was dps oriented tier set. It literally had less way less defensive value than s1. Yes S3 is better for both dr and dps but it simply is awful to play around because it’s tied to consec.


I voted for 3rd as I can’t wait to see people farming neck from last raid and rings from 1st raid as they will be broken for “fire” pala. I will just skip sanguine weeks xD

Consecration set bonuses would be cool if they somehow linked/chained the consecration effect to the character. Akin to how the old “classic” consecration used to slightly ‘pulse’ (do i remember this correctly?) - and with each pulse it moves with you.

With crossed fingers and a twinkle in my eye, I eagerly await the blessed acquisition of my coveted set bonus.

I mean you guys are just not reading the description of the post…

This means, yes, season 1 were dogsht on basically every spec…
But they are buffing the chosen tier-set to a relative power to the new content, meaning that it might not be dogsh
t anymore…?

all Tier sets for prot pala this expansion are dog bad. need to wonder who comes up whit more useless set bonses for prot pala.
