I hope I'm not going to far off subject with this. But I just wanted to throw this out here.
I really wish blizzard would give us more interesting enchants for our weapons than just procced AP. something like mongoose or life drain or random damage or something that is actually run and interesting. And before anyone says it. Yes I know that the 1k or so AP that we get from landslide is better than what any of the proposed enchants. If the static AP enchants never happend. We wouldn't know better.
The Cataclysmic sunderbot !
Since we dont normally run with any warriortanks in guild, I've been using the following opening rotation the get sunders up as quickly and dps-efficiently as possible.
1) To be able to do the following I've glyphed: Berserkerage, Colossus Smash and Heroic Throw
2) I've macroed Heroic Throw to Intercept
3) I've made a specifik opening macro that pops Battleshout/Berserkerage to get the initial 37 rage and become enraged at the get go.
4) I presume the target have normal aggro-range and that you have to stand at range before pull("activationbosses", like Suarfang in ICC, is an example where this does not apply)
# initiation of combat(tank pull)
0.0 BS/BR (remember Battleshout uses a GCD - so dont use the intercept/heroic throw macro too soon); 37 rage gained
1.5 Intercept (intercept is off GCD but Heroic Throw is not); 1st Sunder Stack/10 rage used
3.0 Colossus Smash; 2nd Sunder Stack/20 rage used - initiation of whiteattacks
6.0 Raging Blow
9.0 Free GCD -> Sunder Armor; 3rd Sunder Stack
After that the rotation is as it normally is - and you dont have to think about Sunders anymore if you keep Colossus Smash on CD on that target.

Have a Druid of any type feri fire. It's the same thing but lasts longer.
True - or a rogue(expose) or a hunter(with raptor/serpent) could also apply the debuff, but off the point since the premise(i've could have specified that..) was the that warrior had to apply the debuff.
you can start any boss fight with a full rage bar given enough time simply by using zerker rage and battle shout on cooldown.3) I've made a specifik opening macro that pops Battleshout/Berserkerage to get the initial 37 rage and become enraged at the get go.
also, as far as I am aware, the CS glyph doesn't apply sunder, it simply refreshes the duration
Should I still macro Heroic strike to abilities or use it when deemed necessary. Right now I still have it macro'd to my BT and RB. It isn't killing my rage as my white damage still generates enough to use it plus the ability each time through the rotation. Is this still efficient or saving it and using it during my battle trances better?

Shooting at the walls of heart ache, BANG, BANG! I am the warrior!
I have a question maybe someone could develop a macro to one rotation (one button dps)
Are you sure you want to play a warrior, if ur asking this kind of question!
Is there any particular order one should farm the various fraction rep? Which would fury benefit most from and which is the crap?
Link doesn't work.
Searching it manually doesn't hit any thread.
Searching using ID 72489 sends me back to this thread....I must be blind then, still can't find any info.
Thanks for trying to share.
it's because he linked it to a donor only forum thread, here, i'll shove the info here for you to use.
note, it doesn't directly answer your question about which faction to get first, it depends entirely on what piece you need most or value the the most, and which pieces you think are better off grabbing from justice points.
Just something I threw together really quick sorted by faction so I know which ones to go to first, figured others could use it too, but it's too poorly thrown together to be turned into a guide in the other forums. enjoy!
