    Default 3.7 Easy Warlord guide

    WARLORD


    UPDATE: With 4.0 1 Button Warlord became USELESS. Reason are Legendary Abilities and low Warlord DPS. I don't recommend using this spec/rotation in 4.0 at all.


    Are you:

    Tired of 1 Button Paragon?
    Tired of 1 Button Reaver?
    Tired of being last on the DPS meter?
    Want max DPS for no effort?



    Let me present to you: 3.7 - 1 Button Warlord





    This isn't the optimal way to play this spec and I DON'T recommend it for endgame raiding, but because it deals 95% DPS compared to optimal rotation I'd recommend it for:

    -New/Casual players
    -Lazy warrior ALTS
    -People playing 1 Button Paragon
    -Reavers


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

    -Open world/Questing
    -Chronicles
    -NTE (Dungeons)
    -WFs - PvP
    -Easy raids like: Everything beside CoA HM


    Specs:

    Spec is 61- Warlord 10- Paladin 5- Tempest

    Link to the spec: CLICK

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



    Macros:

    For this spec you need 1 macro - BIG DPS macro.
    Copy the text into blank macro window in-game.

    1) BIG DPS macro:

    #show Killing Field
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Decisive Strike
    cast King of the Hill
    cast Arterial Strike
    cast Killing Field
    cast Breaking Blow
    cast Piercing Thrust
    cast Shock Pulse
    cast Retaliation
    cast Backhand
    cast @self Power Manipulation
    cast Battlefield Experience


    Buffs:
    Put those buffs on your bar and before the fight starts u have to buff yourself with the following 1h buffs:
    Deadly Posture(Warlord), Ready Posture(Warlord), Enhanced Conductivity(Tempest)

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


    Rotation:
    For the whole rotation you need 3 buttons. One is BIG DPS macro, second one is Into the Breach(charge) and last one is Breaking Blow(finisher).


    1.) When the pull happens use your Into the Breach(charge) to get in melee range of your target.
    2.) After the charge use your Breaking Blow(finisher) once to bring all the buffs up.
    3.) Keep spamming BIG DPS macro until the fight is OVER.


    You can check the rotation in the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWh0qzoTAwo
    In the video I used only 1 macro and autoclicker with 10 clicks/s.



    Benefits:
    -This spec is really useful because it basically requires only 1 button to play - BIG DPS macro.
    -It requires no kalerts (everything is used on cooldown).
    -It deals MORE DPS than Reaver, Tempest and poorly played Paragon.
    -Lag doesn't kill your rotation.
    -Deals 95% optimal Warlord DPS which makes it crazy strong.


    Downsides:
    -3m full Melee spec.
    -Finger starts to hurt from 1 button mashing real fast.
    -Gets boring very soon.


    Conclusion:
    This is the easiest warrior DPS spec in-game and it definitely has best DPS/Effort ratio for any Warrior spec. 1 button Shaman being only other 1 button spec that can compete in DPS with this one.

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

    Tested on PTS with a 1125 hit warrior newbie who wanted something to do. All self buffs, no stones, feast, sigils, or even planar weapon buffs:

    Paragon (Chamberdown's vid version)
    1. 56k
    2. 54k
    3. 54k

    One Button Warlord
    1. 63k
    2. 63k
    3. 63k

    Thanks. I'll be pointing all the newbie warriors this way for their ST melee.

    I haven't tried WL myself, but my guess would be that WL will outparse other war specs at lower gear lvls because of forced crits. From what i understand it was tuned around T3 gear to be slightly behind para's ST. Now if my hunch is correct, it means that for begining warriors WL would perform better, but at the end game it will fall behind and this will continue onwards which will make WL fall behind even more with every new gear lvl.

    What did your paragon parse at for comparison at a capped crit level?

    With similar gear my results were around 82k over 10min with 1button spam, for comparison para(real, not 1button) was around 90k.

    You learn easy WL in 30s and it shouldn't be a problem to learn it beside optimal rotation.

    Optimal rotation can be found here: click

    Numbers in my endgame raiding gear are something like that:

    Optimal Warlord: 105k
    1 Button Warlord: 100k

    Optimal Paragon: 105k
    1 Button Paragon: 90k


    This is solo dummy but in raid Paragon should do more because of high burst.

    Personally I'm getting about 72-74k in Warlord 1 button and 75-77k in Chamberdown's paragon. Looks like I'm just on the other side of the balance.
