I don't know if this is the right place to post this..but I need some help with my glyphs and would also like to know what is the best build for a warrior tank?

The Major Glyphs I use at the moment are Glyph of Devastate,Glyph of Revenge,and Glyph of Sunder Armor. I recently bought Glyph of Blocking because I heard it is recommended. The problem is,I don't know which Glyph to replace...those 3 Glyphs are pretty good and I'm having a hard time deciding. Would like some opinions please.

Also,would like to know what is the best build for a Warrior tank.

Spec you should go with the default for any good Prot Warrior: 15/5/51
Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LAM00fZhbZMItrx0zidIzsGo)

Recommended Major:
1) Glyph of Blocking (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=43425)
2) Glyph of Revenge (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=43424)
3) Glyph of Heroic Strike (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=43418) or Glyph of Devastate (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=43415)

Recommended Minor:
1) Glyph of Thunder Clap (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=43399)
2) Glyph of Charge (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=43397)
3) Glyph of Bloodrage (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=43396) or Glyph of Battle (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=43395)

If you really want sunders up then get Devastate instead of Heroic Strike but you really don't need the actual Sunder glyph and you are MUCH better off using Blocking as it is basically the most important one for a Prot Warrior.

Now, why the glyph of devastate? With misdirects, and that one thing rogues can do (no idea what its called) Opening threat never really causes problems... for me at least

I find with trash bring what it is today, the sunders on multiple targets can be nice, Less frantic tab sundering.


and you are MUCH better off using Blocking as it is basically the most important one for a Prot Warrior.

Arguments for Glyph of Devastate can be made that it can improve your groups DPS as more sunders are applied more quickly so that your melee's DPS can be improved.

Personally i have dumped it for Glyph of Heroic Strike because I <3 not being rage deprived

The answer to your question depends on what you are tanking. I agree the 15/5/51 deep wounds is the best spec....The major glyphs I recommend:

For 5 man Heroics or when you are in situations to pick up adds (OT)
Glyph of Blocking
Glyph of Sunder Armor
Glyph of Cleave

For Raids when you are MT
Glyph of Blocking
Glyph of Heroic Strike
Glyph of Revenge

This.

I've tried both glyphs and found much better tps from this one. Whether my raid's getting more damage faster with the dev glyphs remains to be seen.
