View Full Version : Warrior Increasing DPS as [Prot Warrior] thru changes in Rotation and Spec

05-19-2011, 11:34 AM

according to the new spreadsheat from WarTotem my single target rotation should be:

with 30% Bleed Debuff

SS > Rend/TC > Shockwave > Devastate

w/o 30% Bleed Debuff:

SS > Shockwave >Thunderclap > Devastate

So now I've got some questions

1. First of all do you have similar conclusions with your own stats?

With my stats Imp.revenge completly falls off the table making this talent and the spent 2 points in imp. revenge useless in a single target fight.
Further more ThunderClap brings almost 1000dps more then a devastate in a 30% bleeding debuff scenario. In the scenarion w/o the debuff TC is a fraction ahead of devastate. You could ignore it and go with a SS > SW > Dev. Rotation its almost the same.

2. I have 2 Tank Specs. One for Multitarget and the other for single target. Atm I'm specced to Safeguard but I want to change the spec for an optimized single target DPS but I'm not sure which one would be best:

I would go with this spec assuming I'm correct with point 1. (revenge is no longer viable in a single target fight)


you could also put 2 points in imp revenge and take out 2 points from Shield Spezialiation and it's a decent allround spec:

But I fear that the rage income would be too low. Has anyone experience with this spec?

3. If you got thru the logs from WOL DPS rankings ( I choose valiona and theralion) :


you will notice they don't priorize the abilties like the spreadsheet suggests and still ending top.

For instance none of the players who is ranked 1-10 uses Rend. Rank 2 don't uses rend even they had the +30% bleed debuff moreover he uses concussion blow which confueses me even more.

Do I miss something?

thx for the help
