As the most popular class, I'm curious to learn which specializations the majority of warrior players intend to play once they reach level 60.

Cheers to everyone who answers!

Expect the worst. Hope for the best.

Not really sure what class I want to play yet. If I play warrior I may go fury to raid and get good gear but at the same time pvp as fury. Fury is kind of not as good as arms for pvp tho so idk.

I levelled as arms and used it for pvp and pve both back in vanilla. Didn't push rank, but got through BWL with it and offtanked as well without issue. If it's viable, I plan to stay with this, but I enjoy being competitive, so if it can't keep up in pve, may swap to fury.

probably 31/5/15 after hitting 60, but once i get a money-farming alt online, i'll be swapping between prot-pve and arms-pvp often

I want to play Prot warrior but due to time constraints I will reach 60 in a longer time frame than what a lot of raiders would consider acceptable... I would be under-geared at a time most players already have halve their T1.

So I am getting a mage there first to help pay the costs of levelling the other quickly.

Highly interesting. I don't hear very often about anyone intending to play arms PVE. Good luck, and hope you can keep up!

I'll main Prot PvE but I'll farm my plate (for PvP and world content) and BiS DPS gear for sure. You never know when you'll wanna take a break from the front-line.

You talking tanks for raids or 5 man? I remember tanking UBRS/Strat/Scholo typically as arms while farming for my Valor set. it wasn't terrible, though my healer was my roommate so we had good communication there.

I'm actually surprised 31% chose Prot PVE since fury dps are normally the most common type of warrior.

Finding tanks for any content has always been a pain in the dick. Getting a fury or arms warrior to temporarily toss on a shield to tank is like pulling teeth in most cases. "LF1M XXXXX(content) need tank and GTG" is pretty much the tagline of every forming group. Proceeds right up to and including retail where tanks get insta queues for dungeon finder content. They always have too. Even on vanilla private servers, finding tanks is always the hardest part of building a group.

Was just surprised with the over-representation of prot when getting any warrior to tank is usually tough. I suppose this forum is probably catered to a more mature audience though and perhaps tanking appeals more to that demographic.

*in raids

Many people want to tank dungeons, every group of friends has that one guy (me in that case). In raids a lot of those are gonna be off-tanks at most, since a ton of people feel unprepared for the responsibility.

Also you have to include the server type variable. If you're on a PvE server just gear up with some crit/hit and a 2H while Prot and you're a-ok; On a PvP server it's a tad different, you HAVE to solo/farm stuff as Arms if you don't want to get clowned by every lvl 52 randy that passes you by. That's a 100g respecc everytime you wanna step outside a capital city, chief.

I wonder how many Fury tanks we will get to see in Classic. I won't roll Warrior on Classic but if I would I would probably like to try it out. This guy https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5xSfo ... 7SQ/videos has some nice videos on when you should be deep prot and when you could be fury for tanking. He even discusses when you could be dual wield tanking and why it's actually good!

I believe you make a solid point. I can hardly imagine we will see an overrepresentation of protection warriors once we hit classic. All tho I did intentionally ask which spec do they intend to play, as oftentimes one could end up playing something entirely else.

Level as Arms.

Spec to deep prot around 52~.

Will be on PvP server, so I'll have to see if being a prot means living hell haha. Hopefully I'll travel around with some guildies when grinding / dungeoning.

I really wish that guy would clean up his speech or just write his points down. The information is good but sitting through five minutes of "um's" and "ah's" to get it is painful.
