    Prot Warr Rotation

    Rev>Shield Slam>Devastate while queing HS and use Heroic Throw + Conc Blow when up.

    Am i doing anything wrong?

    i'd think shield slam>revenge as sword and board will refresh shield slam and its priority skills rather than a rotation really, and throw thunderclap and shockwave in when they're up too, at least for aoe pulls and bosses

    SS 1st, but remember there is no real rotation. It's whack-a-mole style, hit what lights up but consider gcd, cool downs and priority system of SS/Rev/CB/SW/TC <--- if memory serves me correct those are the highest threat in order, though I maybe off because I use my hotkeys and just kinda sail through them.

    Priority goes to SS, followed by Revenge, then Devastate till 5 stacks.

    After the 5 sunder stacks, its you're call between more dev's, SW, or CB. There was a nice flow chart about this somewhere.

    After 5 sunder stacks:
    Shield Slam > Revenge > Concussion Blow > Heroic Throw > Shockwave > Devastate.
    In that priority order, use whenever cooldowns are up and GCD allows it.
    Spam Heroic Strike on every attack as long as rage permits it.
    Remove any abilities from the above list that you want off cooldown for special circumstances ofcourse.
    Thunderclap is not in the list, as I feel it doesn't produce enough threat. Use it ofcourse to keep the debuff on the boss if needed.

    This is all helpful for threat rotation.
    What happens in a boss fight when you have all of your debuffs up (TC, a full stack of SA, and demoralizing shout) and your threat is far above everyone else, you have infinite rage and you want to start maximizing your dps?
    What do you throw into your rotation then?
    Thanks,

    If everything else is on cooldown (SS, SW, Tclap, Conc Blow, Dem Shout, etc) and I have unlimited rage, I just keep Heroic Strike cued up constantly.

    In fact I have a Revenge/Heroic Strike macro bound to Wheel Up on my mouse and if I have unlimited rage, I just keep rolling it up. Makes it easy to keep it cued all the time and not miss a Revenge.

    Threat = DPS = Threat.
    Our abilities do not have specific +threat modifiers anymore.
    Extra threat is build in our Defensive Stance.
    So your rotation does not change. Just make sure you spam that Heroic Strike.

    Isn't it more like:

    10 shield slam
    20 revenge if revenge is up else devestate. If SnB proc, goto 10
    30 revenge if revenge is up else devestate. If SnB proc, goto 10
    40 Shockwave or Conc Blow or Devestate or Thunderclap or Demoshout or Commanding shout or devestate, goto 10

    I've been getting lazy & using macros

    #1 Revenge/HS (I have glyph of revenge)
    #2 SS
    #3 Devestate
    #4 TC/Cleave
    #5 Devestate

    I have HS on 7 & spam it at infinite rage, but I'll cylce 1,2,3 prioritizing from left to right whenever they pop up. The TC/Cleave macro has been nice for aoe tanking, but it does use a ton of rage.
