The talents that are primarily utility-based are simply our general recommendation, your play style and raid needs should be priority when choosing these talents. The talent descriptions include some additional advice on when different utility talents are the most appropriate choice.
- 15JuggernautDouble TimeWarbringer
Juggernaut provides a small boost to mobility by lowering the cooldown on Charge. In general, this mobility boost is less useful than Double Time, as you are more likely to benefit from 2 quick uses of Charge than more frequent Charges overall.
Double Time provides the ability to use Charge back to back can be very helpful for covering large distances, moving to multiple targets, and stunning adds.
Warbringer is best used in fights where you need to root and/or kite adds that spawn. Otherwise, Double Time is a more useful choice.
- 30Enraged RegenerationSecond WindImpending Victory
Enraged Regeneration provides a potent heal on a moderate cooldown. This talent is effective at mitigating damage in most fights.
Second Wind is the least useful talent of this tier for group PvE content. The leech effect provides very minimal healing compared to the other talents.
Impending Victory is a solid choide for a quick, moderate heal that can be used more frequently than other other talents in this tier. However, Enraged Regeneration provides the same amount of healing with less of an impact on your rotation.
- 45Heavy RepercussionsSudden DeathUnyielding Strikes
Heavy Repercussions is a strong choice in encounters where you will primarily use Shield Block as your mitigation ability and can benefit from a passive damage and threat boost.
- 60Storm BoltShockwaveDragon Roar
Storm Bolt is best used in fights that spawn powerful adds you need to quickly pick up or control or a powerful single target.
Shockwave as it offers the ability to stun multiple targets. This is especially helpful for quickly grabbing adds that spawn.
Dragon Roar is the best choice for increasing your damage output, but otherwise offers less general utility than the other talents in this tier.
- 75Mass Spell ReflectionSafeguardVigilance
Mass Reflection is usually the least helpful talent of this tier for group PvE content. Most NPC abilities cannot be reflected, which largely reduces the value of this ability.
Safeguard offers some utility to prevent damage to another player, but is generally less useful than Vigilance for the same purpose.
Vigilance is generally the most useful talent of this tier. Vigilance offers a strong defensive cooldown that you can apply to a player who needs it the most, often one of your tanks, and allows you to spam Taunt if needed.
Avatar is most useful in fights where you need an additional cooldown to remove movement-impairing effects.
Bloodbath is the best choice for increasing your single target damage and threat.
Bladestorm is the best choice for increasing your AoE damage and threat.
