Rextroy's Two-Handed Warrior One-Shot

Recommended Posts


In the latest video, Rextroy dusts off his Protection Warrior and heads straight into Arena to wreak havoc. The Warrior combo revolves around 5 empowered sources of damage at once.



I have been working on this video since prepatch, and it is finally here! The ultimate combo for a Protection Warrior, that even gives you enough damage to one shot people in Arena (with varied outcomes depending on crits and the enemy armor type).

 I started off with a simple combo that could be done in BGs, the damage sources was:

  • Dragon's Roar (crits for 3x normal damage)
  • Melee
  • Dragon Charge

We had these 3 abilities empowered thanks to 3x traits of Bastion of Might and 3x traits of Gathering Storm (this trait works with Protections Ravager talent, to stack up massive Strength)

An interesting thing with Dragon Charge is that it does damage, and it is also off the global cooldown. This makes you able to use it for free damage in a combo. You can also /cancelaura Dragon Charge to interrupt the charge early.

We also take use of Strength of the Warden for 50% additional damage. Reason we are using a 2 hander is because all the abilities we need for the combo is usable with a 2 hander equipped, and a 2 hander will do more damage than a 1 hander (obviously)

Still, this damage was just enough for BGs thanks to Berserking and Saltwater Potion, we needed way more damage to actually one shot people in Arenas.

So I added 3 additional sources of damage. I replaced my Badge trinket with the Writhing Segment of Drest'agath Writhing Segment of Drest'agath (that most of you know about)

I also casted Shattering Throw before the combo (since its a cast time, your global will be free once its done) The final thing is the Lightforged racial Light's Judgment Light's Judgment

Light's Judgment is perfect because it has a delay on the damage arriving, making it fit just before you start the Shattering Throw. (Thanks to baelbeam on twitch for inspiring me to change to Lightforged)

With all of this, we are geting 5 sources of damage, with a lot of powerups aswell...

The combo can be done in a fast way with a little bit less damage (replacing Shattering Throw with auto hit) or a slower one..

You start both comboes with Avatar and Ravager to stack up stats Also, you want the Warpath PvP talent for an additional stun!

For the fast one:

  • Heroic Leap and Light's Judgment. Global should be free when you land
  • Strength of the Warden
  • Then you unleash Auto Hit, Dragon Roar, Drest'agath Trinket, Dragon Charge and Light's Judgment all at the same time.

For the slow one:

  • Heroic Leap (hope that enemy trinkets Warpath or don't trinket at all)
  • Strength of the Warden
  • Intimidating Shout
  • Light's Judgment
  • Shattering Throw
  • Dragon Roar, Drest'agath Trinket, Dragon Charge and Light's Judgement at the same time!

Important Macroes:

/cast [@target] shattering throw

A really simple macro but important. The issue with the second combo is that simply pressing Shattering Throw will activate your Auto Hit. And somehow Intimidating Shout seems to break on a single hit, so you want this macro to not accidently activate auto hit and break your own fear.


/cast intimidating shout

Also a simple one, just to make sure you turn off auto hit before you cast fear, so it won't break

The whole combo macro is the following:

/cast dragon roar

/use writhing segment of drest'agath

/cast dragon charge

/cancelaura dragon charge

Spam it if you want to stop your dragon charge. I decided to use my Shattering Throw as a seperate macro (shown above) Also add in /startattack at the start of it, if you going with the fast combo (without fear and Shattering) Hope you thought this warrior one shot guide was interesting!

      We have two pretty great videos of Priests taking matters into their own hands, as Leap of Faith "helps" the DPS do the mechanics properly... and sometimes not so much.
      The first clip is a truly amazing example of "healers have to do everything"/babysitting the DPS, as this Priest took control and completed the Lady Inerva mechanic using a puppet:
      However, there's always a flip side to things, as this Priest had the same idea, with a somewhat different outcome on Stole Legion:

      Bellular had the opportunity to interview Steve Danuser and Morgan Day. Interview highlights include deliberate parallels between Anduin, and Arthas, the story of Garrosh, Ner'zhul, and Yrel in Shadowlands, and more. Check out our recap to learn more!
      Interview Highlights
      There are some deliberate parallels between Arthas and Anduin in the new cinematic, but also differences. For a brief moment, Anduin was horrified about what he's done before the Jailer's power of Dominion took hold of him again. That didn't happen with Arthas. It appears we're going to learn more about Ner'zhul in Shadowlands. Garrosh Hellscream also has a small role to play in Patch 9.1. They don't want to reveal any spoilers, though. We will also hear more about Yrel, who wielded the light's power to destroy Mag'har Orcs in the Allied Race unlock scenario.

      We've skipped one week due to BlizzConline, but we're back checking out the most popular DPS specializations for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1!
      DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather the data.
      This Week's Affixes
      Tyrannical Raging Quaking Prideful Total Runs Recorded
      We've looked at the total runs recorded for each DPS spec during the 10th week of Mythic Season 1. Based on the numbers, we filter out the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations.

      Most Popular Melee DPS for Mythic+
      Unholy Death Knight remains the most popular melee specialization for Mythic+ with more than 2 million runs accumulated so far in Shadowlands Season 1. Havoc Demon Hunter is second, and in third place, we have Outlaw Rogue (up from 4th position).
      The least popular melee specialization is Survival Hunter. The spec swapped places with Assassination Rogue.
      1st: Unholy Death Knight - 2,097,235 runs 2nd: Havoc Demon Hunter - 1,637,153 runs 3rd: Outlaw Rogue - 1,609,677 runs 4th: Retribution Paladin - 1,567,321 runs 5th: Windwalker Monk - 1,484,006 runs 6th: Arms Warrior - 1,306,343 runs 7th: Fury Warrior - 1,112,379 runs 8th: Subtlety Rogue - 975,157 runs 9th: Enhancement Shaman - 841,074 runs 10th: Feral Druid - 377,938 runs 11th: Frost Death Knight - 346,118 runs 12th: Assassination Rogue - 100,465 runs 13th: Survival Hunter - 98,163 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      The meta starts kicking in at around +16, where most specs start losing their share of representation to the metaclasses. Some non-meta specs stay stable in mid-range keys and only begin disappearing at higher levels.

      Share of Melee DPS Specs at Each Key Level (Weekly Top 500 Runs)
      To see how the meta changes during the season, we sample the top 50 runs for each dungeon (a total of 6,000 keys) for each week. Next, we count the number of times each spec appears in the weekly top 500 sample.
      The data has a zig-zag quality to it. Spec numbers go up and down each week, which is the Tyrannical/Fortified split effect. On Tyrannical weeks, pushers are likely to bench their meta-class mains and play non-meta alts.

      Most Popular Ranged DPS for Mythic+
      Nobody is going to beat Marksmanship Hunter. The spec has accrued almost 5 million runs in Season 1 so far. Balance Druid is second with over 3.2 million runs. Fire Mage occupies 3rd position.
      The least popular spec is Demonology Warlock, with just +30k runs in 2 weeks.
      1st: Marksmanship Hunter - 4,902,342 runs 2nd: Balance Druid - 3,262,862 runs 3rd: Fire Mage - 3,077,748 runs 4th: Shadow Priest - 1,897,133 runs 5th: Affliction Warlock - 1,434,623 runs 6th: Beast Mastery Hunter - 1,275,258 runs 7th: Frost Mage - 1,120,937 runs 8th: Destruction Warlock - 875,969 runs 9th: Elemental Shaman - 853,552 runs 10th: Arcane Mage - 432,427 runs 11th: Demonology Warlock - 305,421 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance

      You can instantly go from Hated to Revered with the Netherwing faction this week and unlock some really cool mounts!
      Sign of the Twisting Nether increases Burning Crusade reputation gains from combat and quests by 50% this week. The buff is beneficial if you're interested in Netherwing mounts. If you played during the Burning Crusade, you probably know how tedious the grind was back then.
      Normally, you would go from Hated to Neutral with the Netherwing faction when you complete the quest line that unlocks the faction.
      With Sign of the Twisting Nether, you will go from Hated straight to Revered! If you haven't done the quest line yet, now's the best time to do so! You can start the quest line at the crystals south of Warden's Cage in Shadowmoon Valley (Outland), where you need to talk to a blood- elf quest-giver (Mordenai) wandering around the crystals. You can find more information here.
      At Exalted with the Netherwind faction, you will receive one Netherwing mount free and can buy the rest for 200 Gold from the vendor. The available mounts are:
      Reins of the Azure Netherwing Drake Reins of the Cobalt Netherwing Drake Reins of the Onyx Netherwing Drake Reins of the Purple Netherwing Drake Reins of the Veridian Netherwing Drake Reins of the Violet Netherwing Drake Here's a screenshot to better illustrate their appearance.
