Best Gems for Protection Warriors

Best Enchants for Protection Warriors

Slot Enchantment

Consumables for Protection Warriors

Under this section you can find the most suitable consumables for Protection Warriors.


Best Phials and Potions for Protection

Use Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power as your "pre-pot" and combat potion.

During encounters, your combat potion should generally be used in combination with Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon 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 Refreshing Healing Potion Icon Refreshing Healing Potion for in-combat healing.

Additionally, Healthstone Icon Healthstones do not share a cooldown with normal healing potions, so if you have access to a Warlock make sure you are using both.


Best Food for Protection

You should eat either Feisty Fish Sticks Icon Feisty Fish Sticks or Timely Demise Icon Timely Demise for the Haste buff. If those are unavailable, use the appropriate food according to the stat priority.


Extra Consumables

In addition to Potions and Enchants mentioned above we can also use Weapon Oils and Weightstones that enhance our gear even further. These are not permanent and need to be re-applied after an hour or two, so be sure to get multiple of each.
