dont forget this little thing i found on wowhead
Shield of Righteousness
6% of base mana 5 yd range
Instant cast 6 sec cooldown
Slam the target with your shield, causing Holy damage equal to 200% of your block value. This spell causes a high amount of threat.
uh huh, thats right, pally version of shield slam. the mechanics of this are crazy. your looking at 2000 holy damage off of this non crit. multiplied by righteous fury is going to be nice threat gen. also add in the fact that it notes a high amount of threat, not sure if they mean seperate from righteous fury or not, if so, that would be insane.
with shield of the righteous and hammer of the righeous, im seeing judgment based threat gen. going the way of the salv bomb. if any of you were tanking pre bc it was our ghetto taunt. basicly, spell rotation will consist of Shield of righteousness, hammer of righteousness, judgement of righteousness, consecration and holy shield. looking to be insane threat. proby leaving judgement on its 10 second gcd instead of improving it, since there will be 3 other talents on a 6 second gcd now. Also, starting off the mix with tossing your shield.... your looking at 8-9k threat opening on a target since the mechanics of shield of righteousness alone are above 3-4k threat.
this makes one think. shield slam, hammer of righteousness, which is based off of weapon damage, judgements reducing melee attack speed of the target by 20%, paladins are going to be nearly identical to a warrior for a MT slot. granted, paladins still have less 'o shit' buttons, i.e. shield wall, last stand and what not. but lay on hands is awsome, and nightmare seeds do work for a ghetto last stand. so this leaves us with the only difference between a paladin and a warrior will be shield wall and demo shout. move over warriors, the time of the paladin mt is comming = )
