So my Prot Paladin single target priority is Shield of Righteousness > Crusader Strike > Avenger’s Shield > Hammer of Wrath > Judgement
Notice #1 Shield of Righteousness is greyed out. This is because I didn’t have any holy power when I shot the photo. Even though it’s top priority I have to use some other abilities before I can use it. #2 Crusader Strike which is the new main attack, but with a 3 sec cooldown instead of 10 like Judgement. This is used #3 is Avenger’s Shield, but I use it lots for pulling groups as a first attack though. #4 is Hammer of Wrath only is available when a target is below 20%. #5 is Judgement.
The Multi target priority is Inquisition > Hammer of the Righteous > Avenger’s Shield > Consecrate > Holy Wrath
Inquisition is a level 81 ability so it’s not anywhere on my bar at the moment as my Pally is only level 60. #6 is Hammer of the Righteous which is the AoE version of Crusader Strike. I have to go back to #3 for Avenger’s Shield. #7 lays down Consecration. #9 is Holy Wrath. Yes I skipped #8.
#8 is always a special case for me. This is my Kick spell on my rogue. I gotten so used to it that I have to put every character’s spell casting interruption ability on #8. My DK has Mind Freeze there. My paladin has Rebuke.
The remainder of keys goes into my “survival” buttons with = being my “OMG I’m about to die!” button. On my hunter = is Feign Death. On my rogue Vanish. My paladin Lay on Hands.
