    I usually covered myself with a CD chain.

    102k in HoO earlier today
    Considering I'm stealing wearing a couple of blues (weird, 333 blue next to a 397 O_o), that's not that bad imho.

    Speaking of Vengeance, ProtWarBar has been updated to estimate your Shield Barrier size to supposedly within 100s of hit points. Also, ShieldHealth now shows Barrier's current value/what's left after damage. I found using both to be pretty valuable in heroics at least.

    the thing is that our damage is entirely based on how hard the boss hits. sure we could do a perfect rotation or time recklessness to up it a bit, but even if you took a prot warrior in full greens his executes would hit just as hard as anyone elses.

    actually, Str still adds AP, so that's a bit of extra.

    On top of that, it's unmitigated damage, so a full 410 prot war gets more Vengeance out of the same actual DPS taken (which is what healers care about), so technicly, you COULD grab more packs in an heroic for extra Vengeance just to boost your Executes.

    Rage changes are live, tooltips are not updated to reflect this on US servers. Not sure if the Unwavering Sentinel or D Stance changes are in yet or not. What's the percentage increase from 36015 to 45019? That's switching from Fury to Prot specs in tanking gear. If you can figure out that percentage it should tell us what Unwavering Sentinel is doing.

    Edit: NVM- all changes are live, no tooltips are updated.

    (45019-36015)/36015 = 25%

    So that's live as well.

    Call me crazy, maybe I'm a moron and missed it but did we loose our AOE taunt?
    There is something so appealing about backhanding someone across the face with a shield.

    Challenging shout is gone (it was an AoE fixate, not an actual taunt). Mocking banner will work like a supercharger version of it.

    Ah yes, missed that in the guide. Thx.

    Perhaps one of your reserved sections could be for macros, once people start coming up whit some good ones?

    I've shamelessly ripped off some of Theck's most excellent work, mosstly regarding dodge parry ratios.

    Btw, can we start calling Shield Barrier 'SA' rather than SBar or Sbar? It's not used by anything else, and "Shield Absorb" makes more sense anyway

    Calling it SA would be worse than explaining what ctc stands for every 3 days.

    I think you miss understood. I was talking about macros where you would combine abilities, not stat weights.

    Such as.

    /cast Commanding Shout
    /cast Bezerker Rage

    And

    /cast Bezerker Rage
    /cast Last Stand
    /cast Enraged Regeneration

    I'm wondering what other pairings might be beneficial.

    try:
    /cast Shield Barrier
    /cast Last Stand
    for some extra emergency help
    as Orc, I also put in
    /cast [combat] Blood Craze
    /cast Shield Slam
    just so I use my racial on those big hits atleast (I do the same for Revenge and Shockwave/Dragon Roar, and will make one once I get Avatar/Bloodbath)

    I guess something like...
    /cast Disrupting Shout
    /cast Safeguard
    could be useful to move casters around? Maybe Heroic Leap instead of Safeguard?

    Not much else you can do for macros, most of the abilities we use we don't macro on purpose.
