Quick Post : Paladin buffs are hard

I've been doing lots of dungeons lately while leveling my alts, and 90% of the time, something like this happens: There is a druid (or a monk) and a pally in the group. The pally gives kings. The druid/monk looks around, with a "what is this I don't even" look on his face. 

Now, in all fairness, I know it doesn't really matter. It's not a raid. We don't need every possible buff. But every bit helps when you have a clueless bunch of noobs new players in the group. More buffs usually means the mobs die a little faster, the healer gets OOM a little slower, and we just might make it out of there all in one piece. Just maybe.

There's only two paladin buffs now for crying out loud. There used to be a lot more of those, and they didn't last half as long as they do now. And you had to buff every single player individually. You guys don't know how easy you have it nowadays.

So for the love of God, please, pallies. Learn to buff.


  1. You have GOT to be kidding me.

    I was one of those "oh noes, we're losing our relevance" Pallies when they reduced us down to two buffs for Cata. I enjoyed swapping out Kings for Frost or Fire when the situation demanded it, like Garfrost on Forge of Saron.

    How hard can it be to hit two buttons? And with Pally Power's utility reduced to seeing who has the buff active, this is even easier than it sounds.

    1. Omg I remember that addon. I hated setting it up for raids.

    2. I used to hate it until I found a YouTube clip on how to set it up properly, then it was fairly easy to do.

      What always threw me was that there was some clown who always something unusual, like something other than Kings or Might.
