Prot war quick questions.
Hey there, long time poster here who quit during Cata. I just came back and things changed so much =0. Anyways from what I have gathered you want hit/exp cap for steady rage gain. This is question one, does this mean both dodge and parry cap? Or does it mean just dodge, or is it different now and it's not nearly impossible to get both?
Next I hear that stamina and mastery come next, but whats the priority with these two? Is stam greater than mastery or vice versa?
Are dodge and parry still relatively equal in priority next, keeping them equal to avoid Diminish returns as much as possible?
Last question is on new shield block mechanics, does extra block no longer spill over into crit block? At what point do we use shield barrier? Unless there's magic damage incoming is there no reason to use shield barrier? It would seem that if your attempting to keep shield block up basically full time you will be using basically all of your rage on shield blocks, and I imagine heroic strikes will only be able to be used when either your not taking damage, damage isn't an issue, or when you use deadly calm with the incite glyph to allow free heroic strikes.
Am I wrong and with exp/hit caps will I have extra rage for heroic strikes? Or will I basically just be spamming shield block with free abilities? Prioritizing SS>Revenge> Devastate
Thanks for the help guys, I take my tanking seriously and wanna make sure I am doing things right!
