Just wanted to give a piece of advice to anyone tanking the "Wall" boss on Shamans.
We use 2 Warrior tanks in the room and we found that it was SIGNIFICANTLY easier on the healers if we dumped almost 100% of our rage into barrier. Even while you are not tanking the boss the dot alone is enough to use up the whole barrier.
You sacrifice a bit of damage but deaths inside the room was the only thing we were wiping to so it was an easy tradeoff.
Mmm... I don't raid until sunday, and last thursday the 2set wasn't working well at all, but I just finished a flex raid and Shield Guard was responding much better, producing no overheal at all if you were previously topped off:
[18:25:15.383] Ápplejack Soothing Mist Merithra +0 (O: 0, O: 12875)
[18:25:15.526] Ápplejack Renewing Mist Merithra +0 (O: 0, O: 9525)
[18:25:15.882] Earthbreaker Haromm Froststorm Strike Merithra 54193 (A: 71303)
[18:25:16.100] Ápplejack Soothing Mist Merithra +12876 (O: 0)
[18:25:16.274] Erÿah Beacon of Light Merithra +14854 (O: 0)
[18:25:16.274] Merithra Shield Guard Merithra +21391 (O: 0)
Anyone else have been looking at recent logs? Seems fixed.
PD: Also, after getting a flex drain life trinket, and trying it on Nazgrim... I may give it a chance again in a proper raid, but I think I will finally set for stam/crit trinket from garrosh and str/crit trinket from Paragons. No dps str users on our raid group, so free way for me.

guys, today we were 2 prot warriors in LFR, our dps was almost same on nazgrim
i did 147k dps, and the other tank did 136k
im parry/dodge build, and he is full mastery
dmg taken 9.8M for me, and he got 11.5
healing is equal, but he got 2.5m from 2 set
so what do u think about this stats? how we r doing same dps? and the dmg taken isnt that big
we just tanked the boss, and swaping at 3 debuffs
On 2 piece: I'll look more at logs tonight, but it does seem better than last week.
Do you think we have to use Thunderclap as soon as its cooldown is finished? I usually use devestate when my SB and revenge are cooldown. Yesterday when i was tanking H6, i saw the crit damage of devestate was only 150k but thunderclasp's crit damage was 500k, so i think if i need to switch to use thunderclap? I only used the thunderclap to refresh debuff. And if i use the thunderclap, do i have to use the thunderclap glyphs?
If I am not mistaken you press TC before debuff runs out and on the 4th GCD before SS.

Just how good/bad is the 4set?
I am seeing a few top-tier warriors use it but I haven't seen any numbers on how good it is.
