Hi all,

I was wondering how the high-rated Warriors keep track of their Rend on multiple targets in a clear and concise manner? Is there a specific addon that would be useful, or should I just spasticly tab-target between my opponents to make sure it's up? I basically just have Gladius that I use for arena targets.

Thanks,
Kelm

Is this worth it? Havent played warrior in a long time and I was thinking waiting for the huge tick at the end was better than reapplying whenever?

Shouldn't you wait for the last 5s to reaply it so you get the final rend burst?

You are correct. Mindlessly spamming rend because it "costs 5 rage" is a dps loss. OT i just cycle through my focus targets depending on who's next to me. If you want to make tracking easier you should probably consider using an addon like Platebuffs.

Didn't even realise Rend ticked harder at the end.

But I still feel that having 100% uptime on rend on all targets is a dps gain over losing uptime for a rend tick that ticks a little bit higher.

What sort of numbers is the final tick getting?

Final burst hits like 230% harder, but if you refresh rend on the last 5s you still get the final burst.

If you have weakauras you can use this http://gyazo.com/14f...d6bf98a826009c1

tracks several targets and is handy if you don't use tidyplates

I use the addon Inlina Aura and have arena 123 rend macros. Addon detects arena 123 and shows the duration of it on my macro on my bars.

Thanks for all of your help. I was able to find an addon I like to use going forward. Also, I learned about the Rend burst damage at the end (which I was totally clipping before), so I'll work to avoid that going forward. Again, thanks!!

Noob vote for weakauras. It is very easy to configure it so it will also use also audio notifications. I use it already for CS and Mortal, and know when it is almsot refreshed (1 second).

This. It's beneficial to swap to the expiring target. If the final tick crits, and +50% MS crit chance from charge at the beginning of your rotation, it provides better burst, and you can then just reapply
