    Soul Tree should be same with the one on this thread, legendary Rising Waterfall from Reddit spec is quite useless. Admiting I'm quite new to WL, feel free to optimize.

    ROTATION

    It's pretty straight forward. Using just 2 main buttons and 2 for refreshing buffs;

    1) Start with SS>KOH/BB>BURST Macro till Battlefield Experience runs off.

    2) Refresh KOH/BB and SS when they run off. Also, they must be on while you are BURSTing.

    3) SPAM Macro between your BURST and REFRESH.

    SS: Swift Strike
    KOH: King of the Hill
    BB: Breaking Blow

    Note: I'm using Riftblade on all occasions. This is just a slacking spec with decent dps and not optimal, at all.

    Eventho AQD and DS do not consume the critbonus of koth which is a great buff, having a 60%+ critchance on default plus PT doing more damage than a unboosted(ready posture) AQD the rotation i got a gain with goes as following;

    (charge)
    *(Swift Strike)
    Breaking Blow (+Backhand)
    koth
    DS
    (Ready posture procc AQD)
    - Battlefield Experience
    'spam' DS and interrupt it for AQD once when Ready posture proccs
    - after Battlefield Experience
    alternate AQD and PT
    refresh koth +1xDS (if Ready posture procc -> koth AQD DS (AQD if procc) PT )
    alternate AQD and PT

    (Arterial Strike, Backhand, Icy Burst automaticly throughout the macros ofc)
    Also implementing Battlefield Medic and Eye of the Storm for a little extra starvation.

    -> Alternating AQD and PT is a good timing to have a very high chance for AQD to be buffed by Ready posture instead of spamming it unbuffed. Icy Burst takes care of the 'Everything is a Weapon' buff which effects all your attacks but Wave of Steel and PT.
    Spaming AQD is pretty straight forward but falls behind altering AQD and PT.

    That way you can keep the st rotation 4 button while you mainly react to Ready posture Proccs (size 2 kalert) to cast it before a DS whenever it is good to go
    koth-bonus > buffedAQD > PT > critingDS > unbuffed AQD > not criting DS > glancing PT

    When having 3+ targets your replace PT with Wave of Steel.
    One maxed Wave of Steel does more aoe dmg than Killing Field which becomes more compareable to Rift Storm and may only be used when there is an option to precast it in a downtime.
    [No Icy Burst in the AQD macro as AQD is not dependent of Everything is a Weapon and Icy Burst benefits from getting a couple exta combopoints -> 1x3p > 3x1p]
    [Icy burst lower in the PT macro since AQD buffs 'Everythign is a Weapon' and the ogcd's have an internal cd for each other while you want PT to be responsive and direct]

    4.5 - Warlord Guide-2019-02-02_035107.jpg
    Will be replaced with an updated (less sleepy) breakdown

    AQD average: 1.245m
    DS average: 1.086m @100%crit
    PT average: 989k
    Ib average: 98.7k

    For me this is a very fun and fresh rotation as it can keep up with RB on fullmelee (proccdependent) while being fully viable as bos 1/3 ot.

    -> About WL being ameme spec: Keep in mind that WL @1.5sec gcd is your go to when entering T1 pre eternal, able to run 750k+

    *LEg. Tactics is a little strange here. Seasoned Strike+leg tactics does pretty much the damage between any abilitys min hit /mmax crit. Since WL is so procc and critheavy Leg. Tactics take away from max dmg potential and add it to increase min dmg potential - evens it a little so to say. Which means in a raid with critbuffs etc i would go without. Below 50% phys crit you go with. -> Every time you can buff Body Focus you use leggy tactics

    I'm running size 2 kalerts for WL making it very intuitive to react to proccs [top left blue is for AQD, bottom left is for PT/ Wave of Steel]
