    Default 3.6 Easy Paragon AKA 1 button Paragon guide

    This Paragon guide will teach you the easiest possible way of playing warrior DPS spec - Paragon.

    I'd like to make clear that this is not the optimal way to play this spec and I DON'T recommend it for endgame raiding, but because it's very simple its a good way of getting familiar with the spec and I'd recommend it for:

    -New/Casual players
    -Lazy warrior ALTS
    -People who struggle with optimal Paragon
    -Reavers
    -Tempests


    This spec can be used with great success in the following content:

    -Open world/Questing
    -Chronicles
    -NTE
    -WFs - PvP
    -Easy raids like: Rhen of Fate, Mount Sharax, iGP (normal mode)



    Specs:
    The spec is the usual 61-Paragon 10-WL 5-Tempest

    Link to the spec: CLICK

    If you don't have Tempest (SL souls) use this spec with champion instead: CLICK

    PvP version: CLICK

    PvP version without SL souls: CLICK


    Macros:
    For this spec you need 2 macros - one is a builder macro and the other one is main nuke/spam macro. Copy the text into blank macro window in-game.

    1) Builder macro:

    #show Setting Moon
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast [notactive] Turn the Blade
    cast @self Power Manipulation
    cast Final Blessing
    cast Rising Waterfall
    cast Reaping Harvest
    cast Death Touch
    cast Tranquility
    cast Setting Moon
    cast Shock Pulse
    cast Shield of Will

    2) Nuke/spam macro:

    #show Alacrity
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast [notactive] Turn the Blade
    cast Alacrity
    cast Combat Focus
    cast @self Power Manipulation
    cast Final Blessing
    cast Rising Waterfall
    cast Reaping Harvest
    cast Death Touch
    cast Tranquility
    cast Setting Moon
    cast Shield of Will


    Buffs:
    Put those buffs on your bar and before the fight starts u have to buff yourself with the following 1h buffs:
    Way of the River(Para), Way of the Wind(Para), Turn the Blade(Para), Enhanced Conductivity(Temp), Recovery Posture(Warlord)

    If you don't have Tempest soul use Soldier's Bearing(Champion) buff instead of Enhanced Conductivity.

    For PvP version I use: Way of the Wind(Para), Way of the Mountain(Para), Turn the Blade(Para), Enhanced Conductivity(Temp), Empower (Temp), Void (VK), Accord of Resilience (VK)

    Rotation:
    For the whole rotation you need 3 buttons. Two of them are the macros mentioned before and the third button is Grasping the Horizon ability.

    1.) When the fight is about to begin target the boss and use Grasping the Horizon ability - it increases your range by 20m.
    2.) When the pull happens use Builder macro 5 TIMES.
    3.) After 5x using builder macro you start mashing Nuke/Spam macro.
    4.) Keep spamming Nuke macro until the fight is OVER.

    If there is a disconnect during a fight you can use Grasping the Horizon to increase your range by 20m.

    You can check the rotation in the video: https://youtu.be/YHDy1RPT008
    In the video I used only those 2 macros and autoclicker with 10 clicks/s.

    And some PvP action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=an69rIXAR_A

    Benefits:
    -This spec is really useful because it basically requires only 1 button to play - main Nuke/Spam macro.
    -It requires no kalerts (everything is used on cooldown).
    -it deals MORE DPS than Reaver and Tempest.
    -Very high 1 minute Burst that can be used with raid cooldowns successfully.
    -Lag doesn't kill your rotation.
    -You can focus on fight mechanics(easy rotation).


    Downsides:
    -It only deals 85-90% optimal DPS because Open the Stream and Shifting Blades aren't used(they cant be efficiently put into a macro).
    -3m Melee spec with exception when Grasping the Horizon buff is active.
    -Very boring 1 button mashing.
    -No AoE damage.


    Conclusion:
    This is second easiest/best 1 Button warrior DPS spec in-game with Warlord taking over in 3.7. I personally use this rotation for PvP because its instant burst.

    I hope you enjoyed this guide and let me know if I made mistakes.

    Thanks for creating this, I guess this will help some new/lazy players. Maybe we now donīt see that much 5k dps Reavers in NTEs

    That would imply that they visited the warrior guides. If they did that, they would not be doing 5k in the first place.
    Burst before or after Rift implosion, never both.

    Both your macros are completely wrong. Right after Rising Waterfall and before Reaping Harvest you need to add this line "yell I'm a ****ty Warrior!" then it's perfect for beginners.

    So this might be a dumb question, but why do you need to hit the builder macro exactly 5 times before spamming the nuke?

    Because of Readiness (each Follow Up grants you a stack of Readiness, each stack increases your AP and Weapon Contribution by 4%)

    Exactly as Filri said its to bring all the procs up + it will align rotation with raid CDS PERFECTLY (assuming they come at 5s into fight or there around)

    however, I've used several different paragon guides and macros, and this one has been the absolute strongest opening(?) by far. really impressive, and funny (1 button lol).

    I think you're really on to something here. I don't know much about paragon, but I'd love to see you do a guide on paragon that utilizes it's full potential.

    Using the above line as a guild I inserted this line in to my macro:

    "yell Rompalstomp told me this is the best one button Warrior spec! #paragonftw"
