Every week, WoW Insider brings you The Light and How to Swing It for holy, protection and retribution paladins.

Last week, we talked about to improve your combat table coverage through four easy tips. This week, I’m going to swing the pendulum to the other direction, away from survivability and toward the Candyland that is threat. Truthfully, in this age of Vengeance, there sometimes doesn’t seem to be a particular need to work on augmenting one’s threat, but corner cases exist where your personal damage output can be crucial to the success of an encounter.

The downside to that, of course, is that you’re trading survivability for an increase in damage output. While that might be kosher for heroics or farm content, when the bosses are still dangerous, you want to play it safe.
