Unfortunately I'm not sure exactly what I should be looking for in my logs to see what I can improve. My focus on fights with physical damage has been to have as much shield block uptime as possible while making sure I have full SBar when needed on magic damage fights. I know that doesn't help you to look for anything specific but if you see anything from a high level that I'm not doing well I would love the feedback.
If there is still the need to 4 heal Garrosh I *Might* go a tiny bit more mastery heavy but nothing significant
Spikes that would kill you or make you hard to heal occur A LOT less than the actual legendary cloak proc so any big burst is pretty much negated that way as well

Bosses just don't hit hard enough as a warrior relative to the health pool you have to really merit going stamina over the massive gains you get from an avoidance build imho
18 tries Sunday night, another 11 last night for shits and giggles. Got him to >5% quite a few times before we finally called it because it was really late (1 my time). Best wipe was 10.2k health left on him >.> After which we all proceeded to verbally abuse ourselves for what we should have done (I went for a Disrupting Shout too, interrupt instead of a Devastate ._.). Should get it this week on 25, if not we'll get the 10 man together again.
I'm still really liking the Avoidance set-up. I don't really tank anymore, but I take less overall damage than anyone (other tanks are BM Monk and another Warrior - who's the RL and doesn't do trash), on top of consistently doing more damage, and I have ~8-10 ilevels less gear than them (Logs from last week: Forf only went tank for some trash, Atank hands out loot and doesn't do any trash at all; it's become something of a running joke for the guild).
As an aside, is there anything you guys can find that I can possibly do better? I feel fine how I am doing it, but I always want to improve if there's a chance I can =D
Also a *little* more executing with a Shield Wall up can help when you are below the critical point for vengeance which when factoring in procs is around 350k Vengeance where it becomes more efficient to go back to using shield slam instead of execute
Other than that its a little difficult to say as priority wise you seem to be doing it correctly, do you have any video's of you playing or streams?
I'm confused by what you're saying about execute: so when target is below 20%, I should pop Shield Wall and start executing until I hit 350k vengeance?
I don't have any videos but I suppose I could record myself tomorrow night during our raid, I'll check into doing that and see if I can make it happen. Thanks!
So i was thinking of tanking the first three bosses tonight solo (10M Normal) I've done protectors and norushen before, but I've never attempted to solo tank immerseus. Has anyone tried it? Is there ever enough time to drop the corrosive debuff?
For the vengeance I mean that you should use execute if your vengeance is under 350k, above that because of execute capping at your max HP shield slam starts to overtake it in terms of damage
Thanks for the feedback. Went avoidance for farm and it was fine. Thinking I am going to keep current avoidance levels around 37% parry 17% dodge and go mastery from now. Dodge trinket looks fun for farm content.
Starting Iron Juggernaut H tonight. We got 1 pull in last night before we ended raid and it seemed pretty easy. But does anyone have any class specific advice? glyphs/talents tactics?
Loving this thread, and how active it's been -- and loving 5.4 prot warriors Been maining mine going on 5 years now, and I have to say I'm thoroughly enjoying playing her more than ever now. I've been running with the avoidance build (after extensive reading through this thread) until/if the healers start running into issues with it -- currently 12/14, and hopefully starting into hardmodes in the next couple of weeks.
Most of my questions have been answered in this (now very lengthy!) thread, but my one question now is -- what SoO trinkets are you all running with, or would you consider "BiS"? I have the Malkorok trink so far, and I've been rolling weekly on Rook's & Jugg's -- which of those two is looking better for an avoidance build? Double stam, or mixing it up with a stam and a dodge?
