    Default Warrior Guide Compendium

    As the Warrior section is lacking one of these for 3.0, and the other sticky provides very out of date information.
    I thought of making one myself, which provides basic information on Stats, Soft/Hard Caps, PA, BIS Runes & Greater Essences and useful guides by the community.

    Guides:
    The name is the link to the most useful guide.
    I've put under the Guide the current spec, with Masteries as some are lacking them.
    Also Free to Play (F2P) spec for those that don't have access to the Soul Packs.

    Can we please get this thread stickied instead of the year and a half old one that's currently there for DPS specs?

    It didn't die; just not as great anymore due to +gear (basically play it if you can't line up raid CDs well with Paragon, or don't really care for it like in farm content etc...).

    *speaking from the grave, woooo
    P.S. I quit the game, so that's why it wasn't updated (and then there was the whole Tempest or bust phase).*

    Dat reply timing

    Critagon is viable on a few fights (mainly where CDs are not well aligned) or burst DPS isn't desirable. Pillars (pre-nerf) comes to mind.
