If you want to always have dibs on getting into Raid or Dungeons being a Tank is the way to go, and if you are Warrior Tank well that justs the cherry on top. Tanks are always in high demand and if you are unsure how to complete a Dungeon or Raid some players will be happy to teach you if you ask. When it comes to PVP Protection Warrior can be useful Flag Runners if they have a Healer pocket them, even without you can make due.

Welcome to the third r/classicwow 4-Day Chat! The 4-Day Chats are a series of posts that will be stickied for exactly four days. The purpose of this series is to open a larger forum for back-and-forth discussion about major topics pertaining to WoW Classic, with particular focus on currently hot-topics of discussion. As soon as this post is unstickied, a new one with a different topic will replace it. We'll continue this series for the next month or so and then let it fade a way for a while, as we're expecting to have other more pertinent posts take-over the two stickied slots we're allotted as launch day nears.
Classic WoW Class and Talent Overview Overview of the playable classes in Classic WoW (Druid, Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, Warrior), the intricacies of the Classic Talent System, and best races for each class. Overview of Stats on Classic WoW Comprehensive overview of primary, weapon, caster, and mitigation stats from World of Warcraft Classic, including Weapon Skill, Defense Rating, and Resistances.
The rotation for an arms warrior is quite simple. Keep Rend applied at all times on your primary target. After that, use Mortal Strike on cooldown. When MS is on cooldown, use Overpower as a filler ability. When MS and OP are on cooldown, use Heroic Strike or Cleave depending on the number of enemies. Even though you can play arms, you’d probably have a better time going two-handed fury if you’re dedicated to a two-hander.
When it comes to gearing and picking enchants, you’ll need to understand stat priority. Stat priority refers to a concept in which specific stats are more important than others. Every single class has different stat priorities, as their abilities and attacks all scale differently. Warriors, especially dual-wielding fury warriors, have an even bigger importance when it comes to stat priority because there are stat requirements they must reach in order to consistently deal damage.
The warrior class is a staple of WoW Classic, often remembered for charging all across the battlefield and wreaking havoc on low-health enemies with execute. While warriors might be a fantastic class at level 60, they’re fairly difficult to level because of how dependent they are on gear, specifically weapons. Without a good weapon, any warrior lacks the strength they need to eliminate their foes!
When it comes to PVP Warrior players will tend to either go Fury or Arms Spec, Fury early levels and when you reach level 60 Arms can be a monster with the right type of gear. Arms specifically with the final talent in the arms tree Mortal Strike is really good for dealing with healers as it reduces the amount of healing that target receives by 50%. Fury can stick to enemies a bit easier thanks to Death Wish, which makes you immune to the Fear you can expect to see from Preist.
Your top priority is to use Bloodthirst on cooldown. While BT is on cooldown, you’ll want to use Whirlwind. If you have BT coming off cooldown, don’t use WW unless you’ll still have enough for BT right as it comes off cooldown. When both BT and WW are on cooldown, you can use your rage dump abilities. For single target, you can use Heroic Strike, but you’ll want to use Cleave for more than one enemy. The final ability on the rotation is Overpower, which does require you to switch into Battle Stance. Because of this, you’ll only want to switch to Battle Stance to use OP when BT and WW are on cooldown and you have less than 50 rage. When an enemy reaches 20% health, your rotation becomes Execute and Execute alone.
*You can also go from 230-250 by making Black Mageweave Boots (3 x Bolt of Mageweave, 2x Heavy Silken Thread, 2 x Thick Leather) x 20. This will cost you the extra Thick Leather, but will also be more likely to sell at the Auction House (due to the Engineering use; Gnomish Rocket Boots and Goblin Rocket Boots, which is in higher demand from Player vs. Player-action.
