Tank Rotation & Cooldowns

During combat you are constantly making decisions for what to cast next. Knowing what to do and when is critical for being effecting at tanking. This rotation guide should help give a basic understanding of what to do, what's most important, and how to prioritize Protection Warrior abilities and cooldowns.

Single Target Rotation

Use this rotation for maximizing damage & defense when fighting one target.

  1. Shield Slam
  2. Thunder Clap
  3. Execute (When target <20% health & need to dump rage)
  4. Revenge (only if free cost or need to dump rage)
  5. Devastate (If not using the talent Devastator)

Note: Parrying or dodging an attack causes your next Revenge to cost no rage, which is the best time to be using it in order to maximize rage generation.

AoE Rotation

Use this rotation for maximizing damage & defense when fighting multiple targets.

  1. Thunder Clap
  2. Revenge
  3. Shield Slam
  4. Devastate (If not using Devastator)

If survivability is an issue, prioritize Shield Slam over Revenge.
