9.2 Prot Warrior

I was thinking about which convenant would be best for protection warriors in 9.2.
Maybe necrolord with glory legendary?
Seems like with the new set Shield Slam and Thunderclap generate more rage. (also do more damage etc…)
Avatar gives damage reduction + damage done increase.
I guess, Anger Management will be the new go to talent…

So to maximize Glory + Avatar up time a build with high rage gain is needed.
I wonder which talent will be better to generate more rage:
Into The Fray or Unstopple Force.

Thunderclap is buffed by the Set and it has a chance to reset Shield Slam.
Which also is buffed by the set and generates more rage…

How much haste is needed to bring Thunderclaps CD down to 2s with the Unstoppable Force Talent to squeeze in 10 thunderclaps into the avatar window?

Would it even be possible to reduce TC CD down to 1sec with enough haste?

Reprisal will still be needed to have decent shield block uptime, i guess?
Because even with high haste but without Heavy Repercussions it is nearly impossible to have 100% uptime.

I have the feeling the prot “All DPS” is a bit broken?
Stacking way to much crit and no mastery?
Why is there is no high haste preset?

Did you mean 9.1.5…?

To be honest, 9.2 has barely gone into PTR & may not go live before New Year… I’d be surprised if @yellowfive et al have had a chance to get any data for 9.2 yet…

I’ve looked at the PTR some and checked out the set bonuses. For now I’m hanging back a bit - I think we will see significant tuning if not re-design of a lot of the set bonuses. I think the protection warrior bonus, in particular, needs a solid round of refinement at the least.

We avoid feelings and use simulations instead! Mastery is not a stat that is going to out-scale crit/haste for pure DPS, in general, as a tank. There isn’t a high haste preset because we find haste to be fairly subjective if the simulation data doesn’t lead to the optimizer picking it by default - it is best for players to customize the results to what they prefer.
