In Topic: How to burst as glad stance prot

I'll tell you why:
  • It does way more single target dmg than both arms and fury
  • It has absurd passive survivability vs melee
  • It has an offensive dispel baked into a dps ability
Now for hybrids - what is the point of taking a pure dps spec over a hybrid if they do the same damage, but with hybrids having more utility? None.

If hybrids want to do full dmg they should 0 healing.

The end.
  • It does way more single target dmg than both arms and fury

And that matters why? They're all DPS specs. Just because Glad does more damage than arms and fury doesn't really mean anything. Ask for arms/fury buffs, not glad to be gutted. You just refuse to adapt. I get you want arms and fury to do more damage, but that doesn't mean glad should be nerfed to shit because you want arms and fury up. I'd rather the other two specs be the pvp ones as well, but I'm fine with prot, and actually am GLAD that arms isn't the go-to spec with what they turned it into for WoD. I actually enjoyed MoP arms, but WoD arms, even if they made it do more damage, just feels boring as fuck. But again, that's still not a reason glad should become unviable.

Yeah you get some more survivability, but you also lose defensive stance.
  • It has an offensive dispel baked into a dps ability
Well this one I'll agree is fairly dumb, but that's because of the glyph not the spec. They could just make the glyph allow Shield Slam to apply an MS debuff if glyphed or something like that. Or make shield slam apply a slow. But I still don't consider that to be THAT bad.

I don't like prot spec being more viable than the dps spec either but you are also right in that glad stance warrior is really not a prot spec.
It won't take long for ppl to figure out that you can easily blow up glad stance warrior once all his defensive is down.


Yeah, I just don't see how people don't understand that. I mean I'd rather play arms too, but it's not like prot is like it was in Wrath.

Prot should be nerfed to the fucking ground along with every hybrid spec.

Hope this helps :)

I don't get why people keep bitching about Glad stance. It's literally just a DPS class with a shield. It's not like prot from Wrath ATC. It's a DPS spec now.

And hybrids are fine to be viable as long as blizzard tones them down. Their healing is too high coupled with their damage. This ain't vanilla dawg.

The title says it all.
I made up a short clip to demonstrate how to property burst as glad stance prot warrior.

There could be a better way to do even more burst but I decided to share what I have found out so far.  Hopefully more seasoned warrior players jump into discussion to share their knowledge as well.

Hope you guys enjoy the video and prove it to be somewhat helpful for those of you just picking up prot warrior for their first time.

PS: Excuse my heavy Korean accent.  I'm not a native englsh speaker and it was my first time making any type of vod so I sucked. ^^

A little tip Irub, http://i.imgur.com/BgUfObD.png When you stream, set what game you're streaming to "World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor." I followed you, and whenver you're streaming, it just has the original WoW game in that corner, so nobody is going to see your stream otherwise.

But on topic, nice video. I'll probably wind up trying fury/arms out at some point. Prots fun, but gonna see how fury and arms is as well.

It still baffles me they chose fucking WW instead of overpower.

If they swapped overpower for whirlwind, and maybe for AoE brought back Thunderclap-> deep wounds, arms would at least be tolerable. .
