    Tank in distress - warrior

    Just following Kazey's advice from the tank primer. I am experiencing some difficulties with dps gain in my tank getting into problems in the instances in the medium/long run. I have included my armory and yes I do know I have 2 items that are dps but so far couldnt find anything that either dropped(not the luckiest person on drops) or found. I barely go above 2.5k dps in instances.

    I am open to any comments and help really. I tanked all my way since tbc and deep icc and now sort of lost the touch or will in doing it just feel a bit .... stupid with it. The roation used is not different than the one in the primer.

    Well, your spec is a bit messy, and your gear choices are a little messy, but neither should cause you do do only 2.5k dps. How are you going about your rotation? I know you say it's the same as in the guide, but I'd like to hear it in your own words.

    To elaborate, I think you should consider reforging to Mastery, and doing Mastery based gems, rather than parry or dodge based gems. For your spec, I'd recommend something more similar to:

    Battle trance won't really do you much good.

    Either way, neither of those things would have anything to do with your 2.5k dps problem.

    IS deep wounds linked with Rend and glyph use? Making additional damage spread thru mobs?

    The "rotation" would be something like this:

    Charge or heroic leap/TC
    TC
    Shield slam
    Rend
    Cleave
    Devastate
    Shield slam
    TC/Shockwave

    and from then on it becomes a more irregular one as I try to slid enough devastates in and then manage the debuff, TC is eating my rage out and cleave only above 60 rage.

    I do mix key binding and clicking but majority is key binded.

    Maybe I am mixing this all up and I just became "stupid" tanking wise

    Try to use HS more or less on CD for single target encoutners. Don't focus too much on Devastate.

    In multi mob situations Cleave and TC + SW are the most important abilites.

    For single target threat its HS, SS, SW (if you have Thunderstruck) and Revenge.

    I cannot find any Revenge in your list and no HS. Both are much better than Devastate at the moment.

    Don't focus too much on debuffing trash. It dies fast anyway.

    Well as a warrior myself you rotation isnt horrible but should be improved, for me I use : charge, rend, thunderclap, shockwave, devastate(til three stacks) then rotate between shield slam, revenge, cleve or heroic depending on weather or not its a single mob or group. Try that out and you should see your DPS improve.

    PS if you didnt know only have to apply rend once, thunder clap reapplys it

    Need more rage. I can't do that yet. That spell's not ready. Not enough rage.
