    Default Sparn's Warrior PVP/E Build 61 VK/15 Pal/0 Tmp

    Sparn's Warrior PVP/E Build 61 VK/15 Pal/0 Tmp

    Pros:
    Excellent damage mitigation, both physical and non-physical
    Excellent Shielding
    Some self healing with Light's Balm
    Ranges DPS/taunts/interrupt avalible
    Two pulls, two taunts, two AE and two Single target

    Cons:
    Poor DPS
    A lot of macros and buttons

    Highlights:
    Medium difficulty to use, and good all around Tanking build. This is my standard tank build for PVP Conquest and PVE dungeon/raid/world events.

    Gameplay:
    There are three finishers. The main one is Unstable Reaction which is a chain multi-target finisher, with a 15 second cooldown. On the same macro is Devouring Blow, which is a single target finisher. I put these two together because I use them almost exclusively for a Finisher. I have two more Finisher macros, but I swap buttons depending on the main mob I am fighting - either use the Single Target Finisher #1 for a shield (that does not stack with Rift Shield) or STF #2 to reflect spells back on the attacker.

    I commented out Fury of the Ascended for play in PVP and dungeons/raids. It is very useful to have when tanking planar enemies, and I suggest just before engaging a planar foe to un-comment-out FotA from both Single Builder and Multi Builder.

    Guard is a War Planar Attunement buff, if you use cast on target's target you will take 25% of the damage done to the mob's target. This does not work in PVE, so unless you are PVPing, do not worry about it.

    The cast, in my opinion, that is most useful in PVP is spell destruction. This casts an AE cleanse that also removes buffs from up to five opponents, and since it is macro'd in, it casts automatically as often as possible. This is not optimal for PVE, but is very useful for PVP.

    This build is best if you have a VK synergy crystal (Calliope's Void Knight Crystal or Calliope's Glowing Void Knight Crystal)

    You will have to excuse the poor video; I made it quickly.

    you shouldnt ever be macroing pact builders and pact consumers together

    spellbreaker, spell destruction and spell sunder produce no threat and shouldnt be in any macros

    theres no point macroing summons and taunts together as youll inevitably end up using both in 1 gcd with those macros. total waste of the cd

    mashing that "emergency shield" macro will make you run out of pacts and waste half of your fusion shield (which is the only useful shield in vk) and also waste the 3cp from protective

    Why?

    This build is mostly meant to be used for PVP, so the spell whatever can be commented out for PVE. I should have mentioned that.

    Yeah sometimes I do use both by accident. They can be macro'd seperately, but that is more buttons...

    Don't mash it. I almost never set both off at once, and they do stack anyways.

    Awful lot of work for a troll, eh?

    The macros...the build...sorry, but no. 15 Paladin was an old variation before Reaver was buffed. If you want to use 61 VK use my guide, ie 15 Reaver and non-crap macros (basically no macros for 100% efficiency).

    Meh, 15 pal ain't that much worse, and it's a difference of 5% armor VS 9% resists mit wise.

    This guy also hates using multiple buttons so he could not possibly handle the glory that is BLOOD FEVER
    Burst before or after Rift implosion, never both.

    Well Blood Fever is pretty large in itself, but the damage and mit is just flat out better with Reaver.
