    Any Hints or Tips for an Prot Warrior?

    Hey Guys,

    Great site and some fantastic posts!.
    Thought it was about time i posted my stats and gear and just to get some true tank chat going. See if there is anything i can tweek etc .

    The World of Warcraft Armory

    First of all my expertise is a tad low after getting the Coil the other night, just had to change into it asap ^^.

    As for Glyphs i use, Blocking - Vig - Shockwave

    Any thoughts or great tanking addons etc would love to hear about them?

    Cheers in advance!

    I like Glyph of Revenge - free Heroic Strike right after.

    Omen is a nice threat meter to add some details to the in-game threat meter. I like the combo of the two, as the build-in threat meter shows me who is being targeted beside me, while Omen shows me my tps and threat compared to the other peeps on the mob I am on.

    Gear-wise? I hope you have a tanking set. That's definitely not a tanking set (nice dps set though).

    Glyph that i use are. Block. Revenge, and Devestate that does the job for me..

    Get Omen, DBM add-on

    Looks like a good DPS set.

    Main Talent Spec:
    15/5/51 for almost all content as a Prot warrior.

    Ulduar Talent spec (or similar variation): 5/10/56

    Can't really comment on your gear as it is showing Arms DPS stuff atm. As far as addons I would definitely make sure you have Deadly Boss Mods (DBM), Omen and preferably Recount. Beyond that its really personal choice.

    Glyphs if you are looking at threat Blocking, Vigilance & Revenge are nice. If you start to head toward Ulduar content you might consider Shield Wall & Last Stand combined with a spec for Improved Disciplines for even further reduced cooldown time.

    Get rid of the 27 parry gems. Do it immediately.

    Do not ever gem for parry. Don't gear for parry. If you get it, nifty, but it suffers from a very high curve on diminishing returns and you also need more parry rating for each % of parry. Gemming for dodge would get you higher net avoidance, but I wouldn't suggest even that. Put some +40 stam gems in your JC trinket and I'd personally get rid of Armsman on the gloves.

    You need to gem/enchant for Expertise. Your current 10 (w/ talents) is extremely low. Get some +8 exp/12 stam gems going and switch the glove enchant.

    Also, change your 5/5 cruelty to 2/5 cruelty and 3/3 Deep Wounds. Its been proven several times that it results in a net dps/tps gain.
