3. Consumables for Protection Warriors

3.1. Flasks

Due to the Strength to Armor conversion from Vanguard Icon Vanguard, Flask of the Countless Armies Icon Flask of the Countless Armies is better for survivability compared to Flask of Ten Thousand Scars Icon Flask of Ten Thousand Scars, and you gain the extra damage from Countless Armies as well.

3.2. Potions

3.2.1. Health Potions

3.3. Food

  • Use Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast for the Strength buff. That means you must switch to Arms/Fury before you start eating the feast.
  • For something cheaper (but worse), you can use Azshari Salad Icon Azshari Salad.

3.4. Augment Runes

If you can afford it, you should also use augment runes (which work in both raids and Mythic+ dungeons). Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune is the cheap rune with a one-time use. Lightforged Augment Rune Icon Lightforged Augment Rune costs 40,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
