    Default Warriors holding aggro

    Hey,

    Our guild's warrior is having problems holding aggro single target in raids. Do any other warriors have issues? Whenever someone pulls over 1.1k they die. Spec and rotation please.

    Do you also run with a sab in raids for hate?

    Preliminary Threat Data « Ciderhelm
    I'm not sure when you war friend is having aggro issues, but if it isn't on pull he simply isn't getting enough threat up. 7paladin- aggressive guardian/retaliation, 16 warlord imposing/intercept, And reaver for AoE and high threat DoTs are your best spec choices for threat. Concentrate on + threat using force taunts only for separating mobs and rescuing. After pull and you got 3-4 + threat builders on a mob ST threat shouldn't be an issue. The one real challenge for aggro is Melee wars ST aggro on Ae encounters. Even then as long as they give you 3-4 gcds to get a head start Intercept, Retaliation on CD, and 1 Single target + threat every 4 or 5th gcd should keep the mobs in place.

    Do you run a support war? Spotters orders is amazing/should always be up and Call to regroup is good for ae aggro vrs stormcallers, ("/cacelbuff call to regroup" works for other tanks) Aid and Rallying can be good vrs AE's and phase 4 soft enrages . 1.2 will fix other stacking issues with warlord Calls and make them even better.

    As far as I've seen, yeah they have. Though I mainly run a warlord spec, so the testing is not entirely thorough.
    I've got a friend with autism taught me more about living than the system I was caught in
    Stereotypes we fought them
    Just by the places I had brought him the life of intolerance was shortened
    I guess society had missed him when they counted out the citizens
    they build a house of freedom but
    somehow they couldn't fit him in.

    For your guy's warrior specs, can it hold hate past 1400? I was doing the 10 man and died EVERY boss pull last once once I hit 1300-1400 dps. I was getting really frustrating, kept asking to go bard but raid leader wanted me dps because I was ~200 dps above everyone else (even though we had no bard).

    TBH when I play my cleric it sometimes feels like a warlock that needs amends. I just don't see how a fighter is to hold aggro when a class spikes a parse up to 3.5 - 4k given the tools they have.

    I have zero issues holding threat single target. Just keep my DoTs rolling, use reckless strike, devouring blow, tempest, and withering essence. Usually don't lose aggro on trash until our mage spikes 5k aoe.

    Maybe it's the build I dunno

    Right now to hold aggro its all about warlord. Battlefield Awareness turns every call/spotters into a 2k+ aoe threat/attack point. What ever spec you run simply add in 6+ warlord and you should never have aggro problems.
    Here is a spec that if you have decent healers will work for everything besides like the top 5 raid bosses in game, holds aggro like a champ and could be played 5 year old on a snes controller.
    Soul Tree Calculator: Warlord (32) / Void Knight (20) / Paladin (14) :: Rift :: ZAM
    This build has/does it all. Warlord AoE Aggro and Temp buffs/spotters. High block and mit. Decent Anti magic. Purge/cure. Gather pull. Limitless power regen.
    Builder macro
    #show Pacifying Strike
    Cast Retaliation
    cast @focus intercept
    cast ragestorm
    cast promise of steel
    cast sweeping strikes
    cast aggressive block
    cast pin target
    cast pacifying strike
    cast discharge
    suppressmacrofailures
    For finishers just line up the Warlord buffs down you hot bar, or if your real lazy put entrench,battle,spotters on 1 button. If pushing more then 1 button is just to much for you throw spotters before rage storm in the builder macro and AF an over eager dps. Fights that involve curing/purging dont trust your lazy finger winglers do it yourself. Use your COOL DOWNS, their amazing use them, even in raids let the archon cast power drain instead, yours are effortless to get off and are huge pbaoe taunts thanks to BA. The only thing "difficult" at all in rift is range/facing mob for initial aggro. 1 missed ability is a wasted GCD and now it can take 2 more to reacquire that initial Threat, 3 seconds before it turns on you = a dead dps/healer. I save my aoe force taunt for that or my shield throw for if its 1 mob chasing a ranged dps. More gcds force taunting less build actual threat.
