    Default Warrior AOE / Multi-target?

    Hi

    Assuming I don't have Tempest, which looks like it has a ton of AOE stuff, what would be the next best AOE or Multi-target Warrior soul, please?

    I had a look at Void Knight, but it's functionality seems to require that the opponent is doing Ability damage, which seems like it'll be a bit hit-and-miss in PVE?

    Tempest is one of the worst aoe souls. You want to play champion or reaver for that.
    Quack?

    Wink Beastmaster

    I love how everybody downplays the Beastmaster's ability to provide buffs (like Enrage and the Commands), heal (however negligible as it may be), and (my personal favorite) purge until the enemy team's DPS/HPS slows to a crawl.

    That's ok, though. People won't expect it when I show up

    BM sure is good to mention in an AoE/multi-target thread.

    Nah, I was asking from a PVE viewpoint...I don't tend to PVP because....A) I suck at it and B) I don't enjoy it much (See point A).

    Don't let that deter you. Most people really suck at it and it's rarely very enjoyable (because most matches end up horribly one sided). But the WF boxes drop some useful lewt, the CQ chest can drop frozen hearts, and you get currencies for doing your randoms.

    But back to the topic, if you have to ask just go 61 Reaver and make sure your Plaguebringer toggle is turned on. If you're in a heavy AOE part of a dungeon or whatever flip your 65 mastery to Power Variation (and bind it) for a little extra AOE juice.

    WHAT?! Not sure what game you've been playing but Tempest has great AoE abilities and damage. It's not on par with Reaver or Champion, but it also has a lot more utilities.

    More utility than Reaver?

    I'm going to have to disagree with your opinion on this. True, Tempest has a few AoE abilities, but puts out NOWHERE near the damage that Champion puts out. Reaver and Tempest probably spam similar AoE damage numbers. I'm not sure what you mean when you say "utility," are you referring to CC spells or the ability to use the build in various settings? The Reaver has a lot of utility spells and is great for PvP and PvE end-game content, Tempest on the other hand is really only good for end-game PvE now that Reaver has assumed the mantle of the go-to warrior PvP ranged soul (IMO).

    I would say that Warlord is the go-to leveling spec for now. It used to be a PvP powerhouse, but that was pre-3.0 and a lot has changed since then. There are still some WL lovers out there, but its damage simply cannot compete with Paragon and Reaver and it's nearly as squishy.

    WL people, don't even comment saying you put out more DPS or have better burst than Reaver or Paragon. If you are, it's only because your rotation for Paragon/Reaver is wrong .
