Protection Warrior Class Guide

Talent Tree
This build is for a full raid. This build improves your personal damage and therefore threat-generation. Lack of improved shouts is planned to be compensated with another Warrior, who spent points in those talents. This build has lower cooldowns on your defensive abilities, as well as improved shield slam. Shield slam is a high treat-generating skill, so use it.

    Glyph of Shockwave
    Glyph of Revenge

Gameplay & Rotations
Don’t forget to turn the boss around, your raid has to hit him from the back. Exceptions – Dragons. They are hit from the side because they can hit with the tail.

Engaging a fight you can start with Heroic Throw followed by Charge

Once you are in melee use Shield Block and start using Shield Slam as it gives you lots of agro. Don’t forget to use Revenge.

Always apply these:

Demoralizing Shout
Thunder Clap
Note, that sometimes other Warriors will do it for you.

In a perfect situation, every white attack should be replaced with a Heroic Strike

Shockwave is used in emergency situations, when a lot of monsters appear, or if aggro is lost.
