If you are not voting for s3 tier set, you shouln’t vote in the elections in your country.


We will be 6th place regardless right next to Brewmaster.

  • Season 1: Use Revenge for a 5sec Dmg and Defensive Buff + Ignore Pain leech
  • Season 2: Shieldslam dmg buffed + CDR on Last Stand → Aoe Dmg + DR after LS
  • Season 3: Bleed consumption on Shieldslam + flat DR + CDR on Roar + TC reset

S3 is the best choice to make as its the most interactive set and most useful in all situations be it M+ or Raid.

S2 is a solid second, its fun, albeit at a cost of needing to use 1 extra talent point for it to be optimal forcing us to give up another strong talent.

S1 set is extremely weak in alot of situations compared to the other 2 sets. Dont vote for it just because Prot Warrior was strong in s1. It had nothing to do with the Tierset and moreso because other tanks were mostly weaker.


I honestly think this is such a wasted opportunity…
Why not bring all of the 3 Tier Set bonuses back and perhaps extend tier sets to use Cloak/Bracer/Belt/Boots?

How about having TWO 4-Set Bonuses or maybe ONE 4-Set Bonus and TWO 2-Set Bonuses?


Who the damn voted for s1, that tier was trash.

Some side notes , they will buff/nerf whatever people vote for. So very hard for me to say season 3 is like the strongest.

For season 2 ,your argument is subjective , i for example liked a season playing with powerful shock waves , bolster etc , so for season 3 it forced me back into dragon roar . So “use 1 extra talent point for it to be optimal” for season 2 is subjective.

I am just scratching my head they would need to buff season1 so much that is might be ridiculs good if we vote for it.

Again , i would not vote for season 1 , BUT they say they will buff whatever people vote for so it is competive with other seasons , so imagine season 1 buffed times 4? So a buffed season 1 would be OP? No clue , we do not get numbers.

Sigh i wish for something new to change it up xD , find them all boring!

All 3 sets as options, or include a 4 + 2piece (6 set) option. Do something interesting for once. S3 is the best set otherwise.

Sad, but true.
But hey, we Brewmasters offer you Prot Warriors some warm Tea while Prot Paladins and VDHs do a fight about “Meeeh, our Sets so trash, we need Buffs”.


My man right here is debating with the theorycrafter and APL writer for his class about whether wasting a talent point is subjective.:skull::skull:

;o exactly , you never played a spec/talent for fun knowing it not the best performing or fit your play style more? I never said the person was wrong , from a optimal theory crafting perspective.

Preferring to compete at maximum level and hence finding certain talents points spending a waste , is personal preference. I have had many times during when i played wow , that the less optimal theory crafting talents/trnkets/… gave me overall better performance. Then again I am not a pro player just a pleb xD.

No I didn’t, but you are right, you are free to play whoever you want, not everyone minmaxes the game and I forgot that.
