1. Strengths

  • Reliable breakbar damage on a short duration cooldown (Headbutt).
  • Can obtain more breakbar damage while giving up a small amount of personal damage ( -> ).
  • Provides 3 of the strongest unique damage buffs in the game – Empower Allies, Banner of Strength and Banner of Discipline.
  • Extremely high personal damage for a support spec.
  • Can hit targets far away with properly placed .
  • Gains additional DPS against large hitbox targets.

2. Weaknesses

  • Relies on high alacrity uptime to properly execute the rotation.

3. Current Viability

The November 7th Balance Patch introduced Druid as the new source of 10-man Might, allowing Warrior’s to disregard gear and food choices selected to provide might and focus completely on DPS while providing 10-man Banners and 5-man to the raid. This build deals roughly the same DPS as pre-patch CPS, but without Grace of the Land as additional buff.
