    Default Warshaper

    The Warshaper is a unique soul in that it brings excellent damage and the advantage of cleansing and battle res to the table.

    Advantages:

    ST cleanse
    AoE cleanse
    Battle ress
    Decent ST damage
    Great burst!
    No mana issues, ever!
    "some" healing if needed.

    Disadvantages:

    Lower DPS then pure dps specs
    No cleave
    Slightly harder to play then Runeshaper.


    The spec:

    42RS/32Warden/2Inq

    The exact pointspread can be changed around, if you want to get a bit more healing from Warden you can get that, might also be possible to get a few more % from Runeshaper, but this is what I have been working with.

    Abilities:

    Damage:

    Utility:

    Healing:

    Buffs:

    Leveling Macros:

    Primary DPS macro (Usable for level 12 and onward)

    Spoiler!


    Level 65 Macros:

    Primary DPS macro:

    Spoiler!


    Secondary DPS macro (use this if you get 3 stacks of Smiting Force):

    Spoiler!


    Rune of Soul Binding macro (press twice):

    Separate abilities to have on your bar:

    Abilities you can have on your bar if you plan on doing any healing:

    DPS Gameplay:

    Plays like your normal Runeshaper build.

    Mechanics:

    Opener:

    Rotation:

    Notes:

    Spoiler!



    Healing:

    This is not a healer spec by any means.
    But it is possible to push out some decent healing (think 40-50% of Warden, without the cooldowns), at the cost of dps.
    You can change to the healing crystal and change a few talents around in Warden.

    This is not recommended for 99% of raids, but might be worth doing in soloing or PvP.


    Kalerts:


    Seal of Pain duration tracker:
    Spoiler!


    Smiting Force stack counter:
    Spoiler!


    Rune of Soul Binding cooldown tracker:
    Spoiler!


    Runelord's Inscription cooldown tracker:
    Spoiler!


    Rune of Power cooldown tracker:
    Spoiler!


    Hasty Inscription stack counter:
    Spoiler!




    So when I say "Lower DPS then pure dps specs" what exactly do I mean?



    So still higher then INQ, but lower then normal RS.

    So what you are asking yourself is: "When do i play this?"
    The answer is quite simple: It is excellent on progression raiding due to the extra battle res, but really you can play it everywhere!

    If you have any questions, post them here or contact me on:

    How big is the DPS difference between this and, say, a 47 Runeshaper, when you're only DPSing and not healing or cleansing?

    This wasn't really used much in last expansion so it wasn't really that good ever. I tried a PVP variant since it does have good burst but the slow pace and preloading is too long making it unreliable in fast pace action like PvP.

    Thanks, I haven't heard of anyone playing it either lol. No matter what tree I have, cleric seems to have gotten the short end of the stick this expansion.
