[PVE] Warrior - Protection TANK Spec & Guide (For 3.3.5)


This spec / talent build is for level 80 Warriors and the 3.3.5(a) version of World of Warcraft

Protection Warriors were once considered as the ONLY viable tank class/spec (Vanilla), and even though there is now much more competition, Warrior tanks are still very wanted in raids due to them being clearly superior at tanking single targets (e.g. Bosses) and their amazing raid buffs.

This specific guide is a so called basic spec, mainly meant for new players (but more advanced ones can use it as well).

What are you waiting for?

Protection Tank Talent Build / Spec (3.3.5)

The major Glyphs to be used with this spec are: 

Glyph of Blocking : Increases your block value by 10% for 10 sec after using your Shield Slam ability.
Glyph of Revenge : After using Revenge, your next Heroic Strike costs no rage.
Glyph of Heroic Strike : You gain 100 rage when you critically strike with your Heroic Strike ability.

Minor Glyphs:
Glyph of Bloodrage : Reduces the health cost of your Bloodrage ability by 100%.
Glyph of Charge : Increases the range of your Charge ability by 5 yards.
Glyph of Command : Increases the duration of your Commanding Shout ability by 2 min.

Additional information:

The "hit cap" for Warrior Protection tanks is 247 hit rating, or about 8%.You will gain hit cap from both gear and buffs (and debuffs on your target), but also talents, as in the talent build above.
    If you cannot get to that minimal 247 physical special and auto-attack hit cap, you will need to use this talent build in order to get as close to the hit cap as possible.

This spec uses some precious talent points in +hit talents, because hit rating is extremely important for any melee class/spec (especially tanks), and thus you should aim for the hit cap as soon as possible.
    Because of the need for +hit talents, this spec is mostly meant for newbier players. Therefor it is made with 5-man dungeons in mind.

You should always try to make your specs reflect your gaming style and preference, though, even when you follow specs and guides*.
