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

Looking forward to hearing from you!

      I come here seeking wisdom, as I am but a mere newb to Fury Warriors (as in, "I've been playing it for 2 days" new).

      From the numbers in the tooltips alone, Whirlwind does more dmg than Furious Slash, especially if you have Wrecking Ball talented (then it does more dmg than Rampage). Considering how you use Furious Slash as a filler already, you might as well get a better one, right? I can't say how it compares to Avatar (its competitor in the talent tier) in dps but it looks promising.

      Hey all,
       
      I'm new to weak auras but I managed to put something together that helps me with my fury warriors game play, I'm new to fury so if I missed anything my bad.
      Basically this simple setup will track your Enrage uptime, CDs, Rage and Rotations. I haven't managed to find a way to get wa to track the amount of enemys attacking me so this is only for single target battles.
      Anyways hope this saves some folk some time. http://pastebin.com/Hnu4qjkm

      So recently, I uploaded a guide to YouTube that helps new Warriors learn how to play the class. It covers many topics such as choosing a race, the rage system, helpful addons, and much more. I built this guide with the intention to help new warriors out there that may be struggling with their class and need a guide to get them started. If you have any comments, questions, corrections, ideas, or (constructive) criticisms, then leave them in the comment section of the video as I will see them much sooner there and be able to provide a faster response.
      If you enjoy the video, please remember to leave a like as it helps me out! Thank you!  :D
