Ah, there's the insane number changes that show just how clueless the balance team is

The fact they are nerfing execute by -75% is pretty worrying considering they've had 17 years to analyse it's effectiveness

What drives people that can't even count percentages properly to call balance team 'clueless'...
PS: Spamming execute in prot sub-20% is sure a 'fun and engaging gameplay'

Rather, your inability to find ways to do so speaks volumes of your skill in playing one in general, to add to your previous statement of being 'clueless'. The irony.

And to illustrate how laughable your claims are: ANY Mythic boss that doesn't keep 2 tanks constantly occupied (like Dreadlords do, for instance) and Sylvanas (who has no execute range altogether) allows and encourages you to Execute.
From occassionally, to keep your Ashen Jugg stacks rolling, up to all the time it is in execute phase - Anduin being the best example of the latter. I hope I don't need to explain how so and ruin your image even more?

Hate to break it to you buddy, but i'm quoting limit maximum and the world first prot warriors quotes during their talent tree review. Ouch.

So?... You need me to humiliate you AND them? Because it's like punching an infant at this point. 

I mentioned Mythic Anduin before, which is sure to be in execute range by the time he hits P3.
And what is the tank mechanic on Anduin? Newsflash - he increases his attack speed if he keeps hitting the same tank over and over again. To translate for the likes of you - he needs to hit the 2nd tank once to drop these stacks to 0.
And just WHAT do you do if you're a PWarr, and there's a BDK/BrM/PPala literally laughing at Anduin's 0-10 stack melee swings and there's puny magical dot that your 4pc proc Ignore Pains eats up passively? 

Need me to spell it out? 

"Ouch."
Turns out even those guys can't help the likes of you with some common sense, let alone ability to minmax.

It's the basic principle that allows you to incorporate Execute as Prot regardless of the difficulty level, all you need to do to extend it to most other bosses for the entirety of SL is use a bit of imagination with tank mechanics. God forbid you learn you can Intervene some tank debuffs to avoid even taunting and just pressing the red button at your leisure.

But if you're terrible at that, as we just figured out, it doesn't mean I am, or any good Prot Warrior is. I'd suggest you stop embarassing yourself, but people like you rarely do, and with what you've shown so far, I'm positive I can utterly crush any stupid claim you can make.

No worries, you had at me at arguing against 4 of the best warriors philosophy's for prot warrior's inability to execute in mythic difficulty raids. Anything more is pure entertainment and the size of your ego is hilarious

I find it amusing you're too childish to admit being so out of your league and having nothing to object with yourself, so you're constantly bringing something-something 'best prots', even when I just pointed out the mechanical easiness of what I've described and quite literally no one familiar with playing this game at least on Cutting Edge can disprove. 

By all means, go ahead and send a link over to this dialogue to any Warrior Discord or even one of those '4 best prot warriors'. Nothing will make your humiliation more complete than this. 
PS: I know you won't, and we both know the reason. Learn your place, kiddo.

      This week's Dragonflight Beta update reveals more information about the new Dragonflight Season 1 affix - Thundering!
      The new affix will be active in all +10 runs and above. It is themed after Raszageth, the final boss found within the Vaults of the Incarnates raid. It is very similar to Quaking.
      Thundering - While in combat, players are periodically caught in Raszageth's unending storm. As the storm passes, players discharge excess energy that can damage and stun allies.

      Mythic +0 dungeons and Raid Finder bosses no longer drop Rare Quality gear on the Beta. The seemingly visual change has been reverted to Epic Quality.
      In the previous build ,we reported about Mythic +0 dungeons and select Raid Finder bosses in the Vaults raid dropping Rare Quality gear.


      However, Blizzard has reverted the loot quality to its previous state and Mythic +0 dungeons as well as bosses on Raid Finder difficulty again drop Epic Quality gear.

      Tier sets and set bonuses are now available for testing on the Dragonflight Beta. You can purchase them from a vendor on the Valdrakken max level realm.
      Talk to Setzertauren in Orgrimmar and Stormwind to get started!

      Please note Tier Sets are only available for testing on Valdrakken. Koranos and Tyrhold do not have them. Happy testing!
