Same as for Death Knights, as I posted before, this won't influence the rotation at all for DPS Warriors. Looks pretty useful, though. Especially yummy lower cooldown on Recklessness.

very easy to understand.

flat 25% dmg increase to warrior DDs signature ability. no rotational change.

simple. but amazing!

protection. for increased schild block uptime. nice.

-30sec on last stand. :/ its "okay"?

I think the usefulness of the spell_holy_ashestoashes.jpgLast Stand cooldown reduction will depend on the fights' mechanics. If there are a lot of times when damaging abilities come at intervals that are lower than 3 minutes, it could prove quite handy. Otherwise, I guess it'll just be a nice perk that may be useful every now and again.

yeah. maybe that bonus will get handy at pandaria beginning.

as you get better gear you wont be needing it as a "must-have" to survive some boss fights without outside CDs.

well. its a 2piece bonus afterall. so not really powerfull.

After normal comes heroic, so the set bonus can still be useful for the entire progression path :)

These set bonuses are really strong, but at the same time they seem a bit boring, don't you think?

I mean, just take tier 13 for example, making shield wall raid wide, that's super awesome and a lot more fun in my opinion. Instead of just lowering CDs they could do something cooler.

Very few tier bonuses will ever line up like the 4p tank bonuses in T13. They implemented that due to the high rate of raid wide damage. In ICC, DPS and Healers could completely avoid all damage on many of the fights by executing mechanics correctly. There is not one single fight in Dragon Soul that anyone can avoid all damage ever. You can often see the design of raids impact the tier bonuses of tanks and healers. Before DS was ever released, I had my Disc Priest switch to her Holy Paladin due to the anticipated high amount of raid wide damage. Be prepared for sloppy first attempts in T14 with mechanics that seem daunting at first. Eventually, T14 healers will be bored because their raiders will have adjusted to these new mechanics instead of the current trend of 'stack and heal through it' type encounters.

Yeah, they are boring. But then, most set bonuses from the start of expansions were boring.

For reference:

Tier 7:

Tier 11:

Granted, the BC set bonuses were more interesting. And I don't think it's an excuse, to make lame set bonuses just because it's the start of the expansion :)

At least they managed to get away from the "boring" talents now in MoP, guess we have to be happy about that and just do with these set bonuses, still would like to see more "fun" set bonuses tho!

The 4 set on Prot is wrong. It is suppous to be 5 less rage for Shield Block and 5% extra aborsb for Shield Barrier

      Hello everybody, so while I was messing around with my favourite glyph, I found out how to dual wield as an Arms Warrior AND Prot Warrior, and I thought it would be cool for me to share it with everyone, so here's my tutorial guide on how to do it. No hacks or programs required btw. Anyways, hope you guys enjoy it!!! Also, please let me know in the comments if it works for you guys!! :)

      I've not unlocked all 8 Champions in the Class Hall, but don't know which ones to keep active. Any suggestions for which 5 are the best to keep readily active?

      Whats the best warrior spec for pvp in legion?
      I heard that fury is great but arms is better now?

      So on the stat priority page it says that mastery is even above strength. I've been following that for awhile, but i noticed simcraft released a legion version and i always love using it for myself. my question is that when i ran my stat scailings in simcraft, i got

      Str: 1
      AP: .95
      Haste: .91
      Mastery: .86
      I'd link armory but i noticed that blizzard hasn't seemed to updated their armory. im getting my 725 ilvl Pre-patch char

      because of the way our mastery works, is this difference in the stats caused by the fact that Pots are Proc based damage (thus increasing in damage with mastery) The neck enchant is a Proc damage, our 2 BiS trinkets are also proc damage, and paladin Greater blessing of Might, if given to us. is proc damage

      The Simcraft official dps ranking has the warrior is 2k stats all around and 13k mastery. so there's definately something to it
