Protection Warrior

Patch 8.3

Written by Justwait Last Updated: 17th Jan, 2020


The Protection Warrior is one of the classic tank archetypes. Your toolkit provides you with a well rounded experience of using high mobility, strong mitigation and damage cooldowns to the benefit of yourself and others.

As a Protection Warrior your only major weakness is self-healing and dealing with large periods of burst damage.
