1. Best Gems for Protection Warriors
2. Best Enchants for Protection Warriors
3. Consumables for Protection Warriors
3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Protection
Use Flask of the Undertow as your flask.
Use Battle Potion of Strength as your "pre-pot" and combat potion.
During combat, these should generally be used in combination with Bloodlust/ Heroism if those are used later in the fight, during periods of high damage as a defensive tool, or during your offensive cooldowns to further increase damage.
You should use Coastal Healing Potion for in-combat healing.
Additionally, Healthstones do not share a cooldown with normal healing potions, so if you have access to a Warlock make sure you are using both.
3.2. Best Food for Protection
3.3. Augment Runes for Protection
If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
