So are the majority of you guys running no glad stance then? When i'm not glad stance my damage is high, but the numbers are pretty lack luster. Is this a gear issue? Will it get better when i'm fully geared?


I run anger management--my sustained damage is still quite good, plus I can dispel shields/buffs off with shield slam, and with avatar/unyielding strikes, you can put out some decent enough burst with a fairly short CD.

So I'm leveling my prot now, 93, and I just wanted to know what to expect when I reach end game. Is Glad stance pretty much dead?

Any other decent comps besides WLS and ATC?

What about turbo with a prot? No fragile CC to break so can have dots rolling all the time. Tried with an UH DK which resulted in massive rotting except against stuff like godcomp where they just spread out and avoided thunderclap. Melee cleaves were just getting ripped apart by TC + revenge + cleave glyph though.

Rogue/Prot/x

Rogue sit healer while you sit a DPS, swap when needed. Have the rogue focus on locking the healer down rather then killing until you're ready for the kidney burst


TSG works alright too

i just tested out gladstance today as i met a glad war on my arms character in skirm's. He outdpsed me every fuckin game. So i just took the time to try out glad for my first time.

Im in arms gear, meaning full mastery, which leads me to having around 43-46% bonus attackpower with mastery buff.
I took crit enchant on weapon as it just keeps the free HS rolling, and ffs i down my targets pretty quickly. 80k shield slams are not a rarity. I actually 100k shieldslammed someone with Avatar and Berserer Buff rolling. So pretty fun spec to me, but i cant say how it plays out on higher ratings.

I don't think you're reading the mastery tooltip right


Mastery from prot increases critical block chance, with like 1/3rd of that amount increasing AP



As normal prot w/ anger management I out damage every single class in the game. Maybe warlocks will out damage me with the haunt buff, but last time I played prot I was clearly ontop by at least a million each game. So much sustained damage it's crazy.

As of now i got around 53% mastery infight with 721 pvp ilvl. That results in 51% critical block chance and 34% attackpower bonus. so its rather 2/3rd i'd say.

I'll give AM a shot, biggest loss for me for going with Glad Stance is the offensive dispel that you miss out on. But as i said, i just gave it a try and its pretty fun.

EDIT: Just specced away from gladstance and to AM + SD. And it feels pretty consistent. Even though i do miss the Burst of Shieldcharge and Heavy Repercussions. If you haven't played it for a longer time, maybe give it a try. It just feels more bursty, i'll stick with it as long as im not going for rating anyway.

Always will be Prot in PvP. In 6.2.3 you can run anything to 2k basically. Prot/WW/Hpal is actually kinda fun.
