WoW War PvP

Updated on September 9, 2012

The Warrior in you.

Hey there everyone, were going to go over the basic of Warrior play-style, PvP, PvE, Gemming, Strat, and other great tips and tricks.

To start off, let's start with, "What's the roll of a Warrior?", well you ask, and I'll tell you, the roll of a Warrior is to either, Tank, or Dps, "Wich on do I choose?", well that's easy, what do you enjoy being, a "Wound tight, ruthless gladiator who shows no fear?", or a "Heart pounding, blood hungry savage, aching to see you body lye, lifeless?", Once you've chosen on of these two, we'll get start.

First, let's start with Protection.

Protection is a Tanking spec that is used to Tank (i.e. Hold threat) to a boss, and or mob, through aggro. Aggro is a term used in WoW to notify you, that you have all the threat, partial or none.

Let's start with the specialization, or commonly (Spec)

Below is the spec you want as a Protection Warrior, you may also find one that fit's your needs on a different website, like

Gemming, Enchanting, and Reforging.

Now, once we've got our spec together, the next step is gearing, gear is what you get from certain dungeon, raids, or vendor's with points, the "Gear", a Warrior wear's is Plate, Plate is a strong armor used among Melee Classes, with the Exception of Rogues, and Shaman's.
