    Warrior Builds, For Mists of Pandaria 5.3

    WarriorBuilds.com is a site that lists different talent builds and information for warriors of World of Warcraft. Many of these warrior builds come from people that email them to me, forums, wowwiki, etc. I hope you find the following warrior builds and information useful.

    Mists of Pandaria has been released and with that the talent system for warriors and all classes for that mater has completely changed. Now there are 6 tiers of talents and at level 90 you will be able to choose 1 talent from each of the 6 tiers. One tier is unlocked every 15 levels when leveling up. Talent tiers are not unique to your specialization you have as a warrior so you will have access to the same talents no mater what specialization you have.

     

    Other changes in MoP include level cap increased to 90, fury Pandorians running around(wet pandas stink), pets attacking each other, some increased graphics for the game, new areas, quests, dungeons and raids. AOE looting has been added to the game.

     

    News:

    Patch 5.3 was released, changed that directly effect Warriors include:

     

    General Changes:
    -Defensive Stance now decreases damage taken by 25%, up from 15%.
    -Shield Wall's cooldown has been reduced to 3 minutes, down from 5 minutes.


    Talents
    -Enraged Regeneration no longer costs rage to use, instantly heals the Warrior for 5% of their total health, and healing an additional 5% over 5 seconds. Using the ability while Enraged doubles the healing effects to 10% of the Warrior's total health and an additional 10% over 5 seconds.
    -Second Wind no longer generates rage when the Warrior is struck by a Stun or Immobilize effect.
         -Arms and Fury Warriors receive a passive ability that enables them to generate rage when struck by a Stun or Immobilize effect at level 56.
    -Spell Reflection is no longer consumed by spells from player pets and guardians.
    -Vigilance now resets the cooldown on Taunt in addition to its current effects.

     

    Arms
    -Sweeping Strikes' damage to secondary targets should no longer be affected by Resilience or PvP power if the primary target was a player as both had already been factored in for the initial damage calculation.


    Protection
    -Bastion of Defense now reduces the cooldown of Shield Wall by 1 minute, down from a 3-minute reduction. For Protection Warriors, this results in no net change to Shield Wall's cooldown.
    -Shield Slam now receives a 50% bonus to attack damage from attack power (down from 100%) for Warriors below level 85.
    -Unwavering Sentinel no longer increases the damage reduction of Defensive Stance by 10%.
