    Tanks are still the de facto lead in most situations, although if you want your raid to run faster you'll designate a separate master looter who can stay behind and adjucate while you pull trash.

    So is this like... protest time?

    If the changes go live, maybe Blizz will notice if a significant % of protection warriors are running around without 90-tier talents? I know they pay more...

    The earlier post by a person newly leveling a tank got me thinking "what sort of useful minutiae would be helpful to know if you don't have three or four expansions of tanking under your belt?"

    I love second wind, but I dislike relying on it- it's a wonderful backup for questing, and the extra rage on stun is nice as well.

    Seriously though, if you're not already: On a boss like...

    Tip for questing as protection:

    You should always strive to have as many things hitting you as possible as long as you can take the damage.

    At least in the 85+ zones, I discovered that if I was...

    He means 9 second window to generate enough rage to sblock again after dumping early into sbar. It's not about coverage, it's about trying to pre-dump into a 20 rage sbar instead of heroic strike.

    I'v been wondering along the same lines. Perhaps sneaking in a 20 rage sbar, if you have a certain amount of time before your next sblock and a certain amount of rage? Based on the %chance of +rage...

    This is shaping up almost to be a reverse-avoidance question. Instead of "how often will you get a consecutive hit streak when stacking avoidance" it is "how often will your rage generation get...

    HS/Cleave IS my mousewheel, it's literally saved me from carpal tunnel. I've had a double bar + extra mouse buttons setup for quite a while, and I have about enough keybinds for everything, although...

    So far the hardest thing I've found about patch 5 is untraining my heroic strike/cleave reflex while tanking, but keeping it going for fury.

    Hm, maybe I should stop posting later in the evening. This could be anecdotal and completely wrong, but I remember Teng having something pretty convincing to say regarding sblock/sbar balance being...

    Point. Maybe fire an execute off right before the taunt swap then.

    The threat drop on Intervene/Safeguard is definitely gone, right?

    Vetaro,

    I believe the SBar changes you are referring to were at least in part (if not mainly) due to the efforts of the author of this guide.

    Generally,

    On Vigilance vs. Safeguard, from...

    What you might consider doing is dumping any remaining rage right after you get taunted off- if you're going to convert your rage into damage instead of survivability, do it while your vengeance...

    Lust/Hero? In theory we could see survivability increases due to lust/hero, which I think healers would welcome- those tend to be heavy damage phases.

    I would expect rage generation to increase if you lower the GCD. Dropping the GCD to 1 decreases rage generation significantly in .1.6.

    The issue I have with the current definition of spikiness is that it doesn't really reflect how we are spiky. Instead of an overall damage variance I think it should reflect or quantify in some way...

    I think the 90-tier talent choice may be more dependent on how the fights and tank mechanics work out in practice for each new raid. If there's a lot of Warmaster-style "zomg sapper!" mechanics,...

    As long as our rage gen doesn't get nerfed to compensate (see: Disc Priests and Rapture), it would make Sbar a bit more interesting. There's probably a few tactics to get Sbar to consume the minimum...
