Glyph of Devastate/Cleave/Sunder Amor
I know threat wise for single target tanking, Devastate would be better. However, for AoE tanking which would it be?
Couple questions about them as well. Glyph of devastate applies a second sunder to your target, which means 3 swings will cap your target instead of 5 swings. However Glyph of Sunder Armor applies a stack on a nearby target. Does having this glyph mean devastate will also apply a sunder armor to a nearby target or is it only sunder armor?
At the moment I'm using glyph of cleave to increase the amount of targets my cleave hits from 2 to 3. But since cleave doesn't have a threat modifier and only hits for a small amount, but hits more targets than glyph of sunder armor would, is it better than tabbing/spamming devastate for AoE tanking?
Thanks for any and all help.
Glyph of Sunder Armor applies to devastate as well.
Cleave does have bonus threat built into it (damage + 225) and it's damage is "weapon damage + X amount of bonus damage" just like Heroic Strike, only slightly lower.

I AoE tank a lot on my warrior, and glyph of Cleaving is absolutely awesome for doing so.
I duel spec tank. one for aoe and one for ulduar bosses. In my aoe spec i use glyph of cleave and glyph of sunder armor. Best two aoe glyphs imo.
