I like to grab the flag, run somewhere near the middle, and....

Charge
Intercept
Heroic Leap (when it wants to work)
Intervene

All while spamming SR. I use CD's if I absolutely have to.

Yeah my healer is always a priest and we make sure he is well ahead of me to life grip me back from those pesky DK DG's. Very handy imo.

Yea Disc priest are pro for helping FC back, I just haven't had the chance to run with one. I"m usually running with a Resto Shammy,Resto Druid & A Pally. So it's hex, cyclone, root, freedom and OH my SPriest just bro gripped me GG.

As a flag carrier you are not looking to a big damage numbers person.


Wrong.

Unlike arms that suffers stun diminishing returns prot does not


Wrong. Not to mention the only good use of this is if they are on a healer or dps which intervene shockwave does the same.

You’re not trying to DPS it out, just trying to get to the next tier.


Absolutely wrong.

-Incite (0/3): Heroic Strike is a joke at the moment and you’re doing more running than dpsing, not worth the points at the moment.
-Improved Revenge (0/2): First not looking to do damage and with a good weapon devastate still hits harder than revenge and it is better to save your talent points for the arms/fury tree for HP regen.
-Impending Victory (1/2): Honestly 1 put was put into it because I had one left over. In the many games I have played I have not seen it all too often and do not have much opportunity to use it since you’re trying to stay rite on the flag cap and not chasing down a target.
-Heavy Repercussions (0/2): Good talent but held out for survivability talents. Your DPS should be your dps and your tank your tank.


When I saw that I said OHHH EMMMMMM GEEEEEEEEE

To see another view on flag carrying in rated battlegrounds check out my video.
Edit: (It is only talents and Glyphs, I will get more movies about gear and enchants after patch 4.1)

I saw the video you posted a few weeks back Shou, showing the flag carrying while in the rateds (I think the matches were all in TP) Anyway, after watching the video, I decided I wanted to run as prot in our guild RBG's and I haven't turned back since.

I don't know what the other FC able classes can offer, but with the mobilty I have as a warrior, I've never had so much fun carrying the flag as I do now.

Bumping for a sticky, and to show that prot isn't just for tanking dragons anymore.

Yes, as you can see the date of the OP it was during the time when it did. I'm re-editing the content to reflect changes.
