Why did u spec 2/5 in Tactical mastery? and not 2/3 in hs? Because always when i play i have problem with Rage as tank : / And Hs does Loooots of threat, more then shield slam if im right.

Thats for 1.12.1, cuz sometimes you need use Battle Stance+Mocking Blow/Zerker stance+Intercept, thats why I'm using 2/5 Tactical mastery at 1.12.1.

Depends on the raid setup also and which boss..

But i would use the aggresiv tanking build which has impale .

Using Impale you losing +5% crit or +10% autoattack dmg.

+you haven't even 30% to crit...so Impale is useless.

Deep Wounds build: http://www.wowprovider.com/?talent=2438606_1_725d3c3p5v55511032002103231351

This build is good for when you're getting gear from heroics and kara, which has quite a bit of agility. It's still good beyond that when you don't have any agility on your gear, but in general it's not as worth it by then. Once you move past the tanking gear with agility on it, though, a version of the build that Sulfuras posted above is the most optimal.

Typical Tanking build: http://www.wowprovider.com/?talent=2438606_1_705d3s52u55511032c2103531351

This build does about equal threat as the above even when in agility tanking gear. However, once in T6, this build outperforms the above build by a lot. Improved Shield Bash and Improved Taunt aren't needed for raiding, but if you wish to have one or the other or both, points can be removed from Improved Sunder Armor or Improved Demoralizing Shout.

As a prot warrior, I feel the need to expand my beliefs to this rubble! Bow before my greatness~!

http://www.wowprovid...1033c1103511351

Now I feel like I need to prove some of my choices.

Q:Why go into Arms tree, and get Impale? Crit dmg isn't really needed for tanks, and their crit chance is rather low.

A:It helps to do more threat, and.. That's about it.. Well those crits that you do occasionally be pretty decent as well. :ph34r: .. You got tons of useful talents along the way (Imp thunderclap, imp heroic strike, and parry.)

Q:Why did you do those choices in Prot?

A:That 1 point in imp shield wall is just there to get further down the tree. If you need the imp shield bash, you can just take 1 point out of imp sunder and the point from shield wall to max it.

Improved taunt is a waste imho. It's just the holy shit button for when the dps don't know what they're doing, and over TPS. Once you are forced to use it as a tank, the guy should understand that he shouldn't do that, and telling your hunters to misdirect, and everyone else who can re-direct their threat to you a bit to get a stronger grasp on things is great. But generally it shouldn't be taken. Unless you're really rage starved all the time and\or your rotation isn't good enough, so that you become a burden on the team.

Improved revenge is bad.. I have had experiences where I get rage starved just cause of the stuns (The main rage income is from YOU getting attacked.).. Stun reduces the rage that you get.

Improved disarm, now why would you need that?

The +4% spell dmg reduction from improved is good, but it's not worth the 20% crit dmg you get from Impale.

Q: You're claiming that your build is the best? Moron! Like a nobody (like you) can claim to have the best build.

A: I'm not claiming it's the best, but it fits what I do best.

You can also go into the fury tree instead of Arms, or go for both if you want to get the improved thunderclap and improved demoralizing shout, with maxed improved defensive stance for max dmg reduction, and if you can keep your threat even then, then you're OK to go, but I don't find it necessary.

Personally I do think this build works great, and I do think I explained all of my choices quite well.

i have to disagree with some of the posts here.

saying impale is useless for high end raiding is not true.as your gear gets better your only concern becomes holding aggro and aggresive tank build will help you do that.

http://www.wowprovider.com/?talent=2438606_1_735d301302zk55511033c2103501351 this is the spec that was used by our guilds tanks back in the day.
