    Default Casual Warrior Guides 2.4 - Tank, DPS and Solo

    Tanking
    -----------
    Thanks as always to this guy for doing the math: Primal Thirst.

    This is your default tank build, unless you have a good reason just use VK.

    For high physical damage fights, or ones with MC (VK grips can be painful) I recommend Paladin.

    For high spell damage fights I recommend Reaver.

    DPS
    -----

    For ST you have 2 choices, RB if there will be any disocnnect / AoE phases, otherwise Paragon with credit going to Steelwind for the RB build.

    For AoE use Champ.

    For ranged use Tempest. If min maxing is your thing Steelwinds version gives better DPS, this is just slightly simpler and I hate tempest so can't be arsed.

    For progression fights where survivability is more important than DPS try 61 WL. Be warned however it does not handle disconnects at all, but it is fun to play.

    Solo
    ------
    WL / Champ For the win!.


    PVP
    -----
    Just use RB


    Role change macro's
    ----------------------------
    These can make life much easier. You can change role, wardrobe slot and KAlert set in 1 button press.

    Here's an example, adjust as fits:
    role 1
    loadequip 2
    karuulalert set=1

    Changing KAlert to Fit Your Layout
    ----------------------------------------------
    How To KAlert

    How does it all work?
    -----------------------------
    Important read for new players!

    Which weapon should I use?
    ---------------------------------------

    *Note*
    The number at the end of every post is just something I can edit so the posts don't get locked, they are meaningless and can be ignored

    Default

    VK Tank Build
    - 61 VK / 15 RV / 0 Temp
    - Your default general purpose tank.
    - Wear full tanking gear and sigil, run sword and board.
    - Focus on Endurance, Block, Strength, Dodge and Parry.

    Buffs;
    Unstable Void, Void, Accord of Resilience, Accord of Power, Accord of the Rift, Accord of Shifting, Crest of the Abyss, Binding of Affliction, Enhanced Conductivity

    Single Target Builder[1]:
    #show Reckless Strike
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Spellbreaker
    cast Reckless Strike
    cast Soul Sickness
    cast Discharge
    cast Shock pulse

    AoE Builder[2]:
    #show Tempest
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Tempest
    cast Ragestorm
    cast Void Storm
    cast Reckless Strike
    cast Soul Sickness
    cast Discharge
    cast Shock pulse

    Finisher[3]:

    AoE Grip[Q]:
    #show Void Summon

    cast Airburst

    ST Grip[E]:
    #show Rift Summon
    cast Rift Summon
    casr Spark

    Furious Rage [5]
    Spell Sunder [6]

    Cooldowns (effectiveness on these depends on if you have active pacts):
    Power Shield[7] (up to 20% damage reduction for 4s)
    Fusion of Flesh [MMB](up to 75% shield)

    How to Pull
    ------------
    There are several methods depending on the situation.

    Safe pull - Run up to the mob and spam your AoE builder a couple of times. This will always work and is therefore your default.
    Fancy pants trash pull - Rift Summon / Void Summon depending on if it is ST / AoE and hit your AoE builder a couple of times.
    Last Resort Ranged Pull - If the mob is immovable but you must ranged pull. Pick a target and hit your ST macro to fire off discharge. When they get in range spam your AoE a couple of times. If you have twitchy DPS pop a taunt to gain 2 risk free AoE builders (3s taunt, other components of taunt inapplicable at this stage). This is the least safe pull and not recommended, although it will usually be fine.

    How to Hold
    ------------
    Spam the appropriate builder and your finisher when at 3AP. If AoE and you need a cleanse tap your ST builder. It's not in your AoE builder as that is focussed solely on aggro generation, however it is worth using as often as possible on ST for the 15% magic damage reduction.

    Other
    ------
    - If you have ranged ads use a summon to pull them in.
    - Keep up your DoTs if it's sigle target and you're bored, but a very low priority.
    - Nothing else to VK, a very simple and useful spec with some good tools.

    How to Hold
    ------------
    Spam the appropriate builder and your finisher when at 3AP. Every 15s use the Lights Benediction finisher twice to keep up Lights Benediction and Aggressive Block.

    Other
    ------
    - Keep up Blood Fever for a bonus to Dodge and Parry.
    - Use your cooldowns. You have lots of them so don't save them all for emergencies unless it's a fight with lots of spike damage, be your healers friend.

    RV Tank Build
    - 61 RV / 15 VK / 0 WL
    - Use this build for high spell damage fights.
    - Wear full tanking gear and sigil, run sword and board.
    - Focus on Endurance, Block, Strength, Dodge and Parry.

    Buffs: Binding of Devouring Darkness, Crest of the Abyss, Void, Accord of Resilience

    Builder [1]
    #show Soul Sickness
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Soul Sickness
    cast Explosive Infestation
    cast Infestation
    cast Blood Fever
    cast Necrotic Wounds

    Pull [2]
    #show Cyclone Strike
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Cyclone Strike
    cast Ravaging Strike
    cast Necrotic Wounds

    Finisher[3]
    #show Dire Corruption
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Decaying Corruption
    cast Dire Corruption
    cast Creeping Corruption
    cast Dire blow

    Manually keep up:
    Flesh Rot [4]
    Necrotic Wounds [6]
    Ravaging Strike [7] (you should not need this with a paragon in your party, but just in case)

    Charge in and get all your dots up:
    Shadow of Dread [9]
    *WARNING* I believe this ability to be currently bugged and randomly not applying bugs, be wary of relying on it.

    Interrupt:
    Spasm[5]

    AoE taunt [Q]
    #show Concussion
    cast Concussion
    cast Incite

    ST Taunt
    Grim lure [E]

    Cooldowns:
    Crest of Consumption [8](20% reduced damage for 4s)
    Crest of Entropy [MMB] (30% reduced damage for 6 seconds)

    How to Pull
    ------------
    I haven't done much testing with reaver so still to work out best method of usage.

    How to Hold
    ------------
    Spam the builder and your finisher when at 3AP. Refresh dots with [4] and [6] as they drop off. Alternately refreh dots by moving back and charging in with [9].

    Other
    ------
    - Keep up your DoTs. More important in RV as those DoTs are your aggro.
    - Keep up Ravaging Strike if no-one else in your party is supplying an armour debuff.
    - Use Sargents Order to grip in ads. However, this does not have any aggro component, it is just for stacking mobs you already have aggro on.

    - DW vs 2H is unimportant, use your best
    - Can also be used in PVP and solo if low on slots, just be careful not to overpull!

    - Disconnected rotation; As normal

    - Fork is now a toggle, just use once at the start of rotation.

    - 3 and 4 are all oGCD. When hitting them move into next button immediately. With Q spam until you start to swing.

    Champion
    - Best DPS - 61 Chmp / 15 Para / 0 RB
    - With Interrupt - 61 Chmp / 15 Para / 0 RB
    - Light solo capability - 61 Chmp / 4 Para / 11 WL
    - Only use this on melee friendly fights where you need your best AoE. ST is below par.
    - Run full DPS gear and sigil
    - 2H vs DW is unimportant
    - Focus on Attack Power, Strength, Dexterity, Physical Crit and Crit Power.

    Mark of Extermination [MMB]

    ST: E(on 1st rotation only), MMB, 6, 4, 2, 4, 2, 2, 4. Repeat.
    - It times so disruptive strike is available for every 2nd finisher.
    - Replace a [2] with SS when it needs refreshing (every 15s).

    AoE: E(on 1st rotation only), MMB, 6, 3, Q, 3, 1, 1, 7, 3, 2, 3.
    - Replace a MB with SS when it needs refreshing (every 15s). For ease I tend to refresh early the first time round so it slips in after CB, FM. It makes it a more natural rotation.

    *Proper timing will be available every 2nd rotation, try and use it with Titan's. If not comfortable with doing this put at top of your finisher macro and it will go off with Thunderous.

    Keep Mark of Extermination refreshed (it's oGCD and you don't have energy issues so hit as often as you like, at least every 60s)

    If you absolutely must remain ST for any reason spam ST builder. Expect poor numbers but better than standing there doing nothing.

    Warlord
    - 41 WL / 35 Champ / 0 Para
    - At level 50: 41 WL / 25 Champ / 0 Para
    - A video of the build in action
    - For all your slice and dice solo needs.
    - Wear full DPS gear and sigil. Use Vampiric Munitions weapon buff and a heal on block / damage / x trinket.
    - DW vs 2H is unimportant, use whichever is better
    - Focus on Attack Power, Strength, Dexterity, Physical Crit and Crit Power.

    Buffs;

    Offensive: Recovery Posture, Deadly Posture, Everything is a Weapon, Soldiers Bearing, Shared Sufferring, Way of the River

    Use Cornered Beast off CD. It gives a very nice surge of healing through vampiric and recovery.

    Use Battle Surge every 30s for a DPS boost. Mobs will die quicker, but you take 10% more damage, so be careful when you use it. This will take practice to balance. Can be skipped entirely for simplicity.

    If taking a lot of damage use Chains of Life as your finisher. Battlefield medic is also a semi useful heal on a 8S CD.

    To pull mobs spam Mark of Inevitability.

    Apply No Permission to Die if you feel you will die in the next 10s.

    *TIP* On big pulls If your health is starting to get low get 3 combo points, apply no permission to die, and do nothing.
    When you get the 50% heal use shield, chains of life, battlefield medic and you're ready to kick on with full health.

    Changelog for 2.3
    - Overhauled my KaruulAlerts. Be warned, they are now laid out for a 1440p monitor. Some KAlerts are also out of date, need more than 6 sets and subsets seems to be buggy. They will be fixed when KAlert is updated.
    - Added 61 Reaver
    - Changed sub soul on Pally / VK to Reaver
    - Added Paragon
    - Dumped the PVP spec to make space. Just use 61 RB.
    - Adjusted layout of Champ a little to allow [5] to remain free for interrupt if you spec that version.
    - Had to move things around a little to fit it all in so if links in first post are a bit broken just let me know.
    - Rushed this a little as I wanted to play, if there are any errors I'll fix them up as I go along.
    - New thread as I had lost edit privs to too many of my old posts.

    Paragon version that has Champ is fine and may be our top parsing variation, I'd still put 10rb/5temp variation link though...up to you.

    61temp/15paragon is meh Ewar....you know better . 10RB/5Paragon is superior.
    61RB/10Temp/5Paragon could be argued as being better than 15temp because of the affect 10% to builders has in a raid setting over the 200ap. 15Tempest is fine though.
    I'd add 61WL for the utility dps spec.

    I absolutely hate tempest. With a passion and a vengeance. I haven't ever bothered learning the proper version as I use it so rarely it's not worth my time to work in the RB talents to my rotation. This is the simple version, I just left out the disclaimer when updating.

    I like the champ version of para for the free armour debuff. I think it's a nice little extra to fetch to the raid.

    I do have 61 WL. It's not used too often but is one of my favorites. However the original guide was pretty much perfect for all audiences so it was pointless me making up a casual friendly version
