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!

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 y'all, 
      So I'll cut right to the chase. I feel like I'm under performing. Or I could be doing just fine with my current gear/stats (SimCraft may have given me unrealistic expectations).
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/malganis/veinsplitter
      I have decent stats, draught and convergence, and my 4 piece. These are all on the lower side, so I think that would be one way to improve my DPS, but that's not what I'm here for. I ran a Sim today and it states that under ideal conditions and a perfect run, I should be doing around 900k, with an initial burst of 1.7k, and a couple peaks around a mil. I don't see these numbers, especially the peaks of 1 mil, while I run though, which leads me to my original point of me thinking I'm doing something wrong.

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/CygxKrJPNhfz82dB#view=rankings Heroic Guldan
      One thing someone will probably point out is that I wasn't using pre-pots on either of those. That'll change in the future. 
       
      My rotation is based off of the Fury Discord guide.
      Opener - Charge/BT/BC/Rampage/Drought/RB
      I'll usually then BT or Rampage based on rage, OF, and then go into a priority system of Enraged RB > BT > FS > RB
      Rampage at 100 rage.
       
      At execute phase, my execute rotation is:
      Execute/FS/BT in that order to keep myself at 100 rage for Frothing. While this is what the Fury Discord states, I tend to not get a ton of Execute damage on the boss and feel this is one area I could be doing something wrong.
       
      On add fights, I know that I don't incorporate Whirlwind enough into my rotation, and that's something I need to be a bit mindful of. But after I burst, I tend to drop down at a steady rate. I don't usually see my DPS jump back up unless I Drought (which makes sense), but when I'm doing my standard rotation I can't keep my numbers up. Krosus should be a straight forward fight, but if you look at the logs, my dps drops to around 500k. Am I screwing something up? Or am I pulling comparable DPS to a fury warrior with 897 ilvl. 
      Thank you all for any help you can provide to me. I greatly appreciate it. I just want to bring honor and glory to all of my warrior brethren out there.

      Hello all, 
                   Thanks for your yalls time and I hope I am in the the right place to ask. First things first, here is my toons info page. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Aurgus/advanced . The question I have is this. On the Arms Warrior guide, it states the the stat priority for Arms Warrior is Mastery>Haste>Versatility>Strength>Crit . Then the first thing it says in the next paragraph is the following.
      Strength is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.
      Critical Strike provides additional damage to your attacks and abilities, and also increases your rage generated by auto-attack swings on successful critical strikes.
      As a on and off again / returning player and all around general boob, I mean, NOOB lol, this is extremely confusing. I am already and almost done with my main Warrior quest, and I have so far chosen gear that focused on Mastery and Haste. But from that the guide says, I am doing it wrong?
      Thanks again for your time , any help would be appreciated, and MUCH LOVE from Wisconsin :)
       
      ZugzwangGroo,

      Hello! New to forums, and sorta WoW. I played a mage back in WotLK but nothing since and have started a Warrior with intentions of high end PvE/PvP, currently level 54.
      I have lots of questions, but two that I need help with today are 1) I'm duel wielding two-handers and have no idea how this affects my spells? I understand that a weapon in the off hand position does less than it would in the main hand but is that just for auto attacks? I noticed in my combat logs yesterday that some of my spell hits had (off-hand) next to the log, but I'm having trouble telling how that affects how/when I should use abilities like execute/rampage.
      2)How in the world does attack speed affect my spells, and to add.. how does haste affect my weapon speed? I thought weapon speed increases auto attack (White damage) speed only and haste is only for GCD, but on icy veins they list Enrage as the most important thing for fury warriors to keep up, but aren't auto attacks only a small portion of my damage? and it says to make sure to have enrage up before bladestorming?
       
      I've tried googling how attack speed/haste works and no one addresses the questions I asked which makes me think I'm totally missing something obvious so sorry if that's the case but thanks for any help.
