What makes the protective warrior special
Which skills you can use
How you play him in combat

The Protection Warrior: With one-handed weapon and sign in close combat

The tank is one of the most important roles in the game in many MMOs.
He prevents opponents who would beat other characters with two strokes from virtual life at all.
In WoW: Dragon Flight, hardly anyone can do it better than the Prot-Warri (Protection Warrior = Protection Warrior).
Wrapped in thick panel armor and equipped with a large shield and a one-handed weapon, he preserves his group from threats and goes to the clothing with the big opponents.

with anger and many damage to success

The protective warrior builds on the Anger resource.
At the beginning of the fight, he has 0 of it and then has to gradually build it up by inserted and divided damage.
As soon as he has collected enough anger, he can use the offensive and defensive skills that consume them again.
Then the circulation begins from the front.

Stat priority: You have to pay attention to that

For the protection warrior, the main thing is to find a good balance between defensive and offensive attributes.
Strength and endurance are the two primary attributes that you always have to focus.
There are also secondary attributes of different importance.
These are distributed as follows with the protective warrior:
Tempo> versatility> Critical hit rating> Championship

WOW Dragon Flight: Killings for the Protection Warrior

Here you will find two skills, once for Raids and once for Mythic+dungeons.
The RAID skill focuses on maximizing your damage against individual goals and increasing your mobility.
With the Mythic+skill, on the other hand, you get more AOE damage (area of effect = damage to several goals) and self-healing.
Simply import the strings into your game and use the skills directly.
To do this, you just have to copy the string and insert in your talent tree at the bottom left of the drop-down menu under Import.


With the protective warrior, every skill is fundamentally about keeping aortic block actively.
This significantly reduces your damage.
Then you can decide whether you prefer to use offensive or defensive skills.
The rotation or list of priorities then looks as follows:
Storm attack for quick reaching the opponents
Keep Schildblock active
Bite teeth together if a lot of damage arrives, or you want to consume anger defensively
Avatar, as soon as ready
Thunder bang, as soon as ready
Schildschlag as soon as ready
Revenge to consume anger or if it proact
Hate as soon as ready

Additional skills

The protective warrior has even more skills that fill out different roles.
Demoralizing reputation: reduces the damage caused by all enemies around 25 percent for 8 seconds.
Can be used for every attack on a new opponent group, since less damage = more chance of survival.
Important in mythic+dungeons.
Wider: Throws a weapon to the destination that causes damage and generates anger.
You should always use it on a cooldown, since the defender causes a lot of damage and generates anger.
However, it is more sensible with several goals.
Schildansturm: storms towards one goal, causes damage in a radius and anesthetizes the primary goal.
Strong ability that should always be used as soon as it is ready.

Schildwall: reduces the incoming damage by 40 percent for 8 seconds.
Schildwall is the perfect counterattack in situations with a lot of damage.
You should use it depending on the situation, since the cooldown is quite long.
Magic reflection: reflects the next damage magic and reduces incoming magic chads by 20 percent.
Strong ability against magicians.
It is best to get a Weak aura (an interface addon-here you can read more: Wow add-ons) that show you when you can reflect on a spell.
Last battle: increases the health of the warrior by 30 percent and heals this value.

  • Another defensive ability that you can use as an emergency nail at the last second.
    Encourage scream: increases the maximum health of the group by 15 percent for 10 seconds.


  • Important if the group gets a lot of damage.

Bitter immunity (if selected): Heals 20 percent of your life and removes rebuffs such as diseases, toxins and curses.
Can be used as a small additional healing and if the healers cannot come after the disenchantment of rebuffs.
