NB: This has all changed with the removal of the 6% crit reduction for locks and non-prot warriors, this change relegates lock “tanking” to low level mobs or purely spell based bosses. If you are reading this and would like me to do a full on guide for the kind of tanking we can now do, please let me know in the comments. It’s going to be extremely situational in progression raiding so I won’t be doing too much on it unless I get some feedback!!!!
The Warrior tanks have a lot in store for them in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. From the introduction of the new and simplified stat system, the new Rage Normalization system, and of course some new and revamped skills and abilities; our classic Protection Tanks have new challenges to face when the 3rd installment hits the stores.
From Deepholm, an ancient evil arises to pose a new threat to Azeroth and Kalimdor. As the battle rages on with the Undead Scourge, the world has undergone drastic changes signaling the rise of another epic adventure. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, the 3rd installment of the highly popular MMORPG has taken the franchise into another dimension of Blizzard awesomeness. New races, new race-class combinations, new zones, instances, battlegrounds and raids,and an all new level cap of 85. It will be a completely different game than you’ve ever experienced in Northrend.
Ego here. I’m posting this on Aensu’s behalf. We had a prot warrior email in asking for some hints and tips for both himself and his priest friend.
Aensu, our resident tanking expert, went above and beyond a quick response, and I thought it might be useful enough for OTHER warriors that I stole it and posted it without his permission.
If you don’t hear from me on Thursday, please have the police check for my body.
