Class Overview

Currently, Protection Warriors are faring very well, making them a worthy choice for your raid's tanking spot(s). Like all Warriors, Protection Warriors provide several useful raid cooldowns (most notably Rallying Cry Icon Rallying Cry, Shattering Throw Icon Shattering Throw, Demoralizing Banner Icon Demoralizing Banner and Skull Banner Icon Skull Banner).

Protection Warriors have excellent mobility during encounters, and shine in fights where there are a great many adds.

Note that this guide focuses on aspects which are specific to Protection Warriors, and general tanking strategies are beyond its scope. If you wish to know more about the tanking role and what you can do to improve, we recommend that you read our tanking guide.
