So, probably gonna reroll my warrior, but do I want to suffer through 75 levels of tanking again like I did on the monk?

Unrelated, anyone try Mechromancer yet?

GF got her own copy recently, so us and a friend are going to start level 1s sometime soon, considering trying her out. The right tree (Anarchy or something?) is mildly confusing, and yet cool looking.

Dear Blizzard:

I love my monk.

Please don't give my guild a legitimate reason to ask me to switch to my pally so we can progress on heroic modes.

Pandaren warriors look really BA, it's too bad I can't stand playing warrior...

I haven't even made it off the wandering isle on mine.

To the raiding wars in here, how big of a role is shield barrier playing for you? I'd imagine it's pretty important on stone guard, just wondering how often it's getting used on the other bosses.

I ask because we replaced our OT right before our raids last week (other one didn't level up, and didn't let us know he wouldn't be leveling :P), and I just realized the warrior we brought in didn't use it at all. Would like to be able to give good advice.

I think that has more to do with the Pandaren starter zone being incredibly boring.

Stone Guard and Elegon are the fights where it gets the most usage. On most others, Block seems better since they're mostly physical damage. A full rage Barrier on Will might block a full attack, but then you're left with the other attacks. Block will, well, block 30% at least of all damage on Will (well, most damage they do to you I guess) and that's a mighty big difference.

Feng, Barrier can help with Lightning Lash/Flame Spear/Arcane Shock and those do tend to sting a bit. On Gara'jal, you're better with Block since Shadowy Attacks goes through Barrier. Spirit Kings, haven't tanked.

First off, thanks for the quick response.

He won't be tanking them either, so that's fine :D.

Happy to hear Elegon is a good fight for it. He was having a hard time with that fight, so much so that we took him off the boss completely outside of a few seconds every 1-2 adds to let me drop stacks. Hopefully we can get that fixed.

About the other fights, do warriors have enough rage to use both at all? I know even on fights where I would focus on SD, I'd still have enough rage to throw out an FR here or there, but I'm not sure how war rage gen is.
