It’s funny how quickly time passes. Many have inquired as to what the status of this site is and truthfully, I didn’t know until recently myself. I considered many options, but ultimately, it only makes sense with me leaving WoW that the site should end too.
Running this site has been as rewarding as playing the game itself. As I told my guildmates, I walk away from this game with no regrets and a wealth of life experiences. Thank you for reading, commenting and sharing this website with your fellow guildmates.
My hope is that you enjoy your WoW journey as much as I did.

In my last post, I looked at the possibility of utilizing Heroic Throw to keep Sunder Armor maintained on a 2nd mob that was up to 30 yards away from you. This idea banks on Blizzard increasing the duration of Sunder Armor by at least 5 seconds.
But, what if: Glyph of Heroic Throw could apply Rend.
This solves the problem of chucking an axe at a target and it being accidentally re-shackled. And more to the point, it makes Blood and Thunder a whole lot more effective.

Recently, we got a look at some new Cataclysm glyphs and after my initial reaction of /yawn, the new Heroic Throw glyph got me thinking…
But first, here it is:
Heroic Throw Glyph
Your Heroic Throw applies a stack of Sunder Armor.
I pull the mob. It gets a Sunder Armor stack. Probably makes Heroic Throw do a bit more threat. /yawn
Since the rule is that anything that applies a stack of Sunder Armor inevitably will refresh Sunder Armor, I can use this to refresh Sunder Armor from range. Sweet!
Which got me thinking…

The only way I feel comfortable describing Cataclysm’s newest Protection Warrior build is: Flooded.
Then again, maybe I only need 39/41 points?
Oh, right… there’s 2 other trees to spend points in :/
Yup, the best way to handle a flooded talent tree is to just avoid talking about it and instead we’re going to focus on what I think is one of the coolest new talents they’re considering for Cataclysm.
Yes, it already exists right now, but Cataclysm’s remake of this talent is pretty wicked. Let’s take a look at it with 3/3 points in it:

While I’m not a fan of Cataclysm’s potential new talent, Hold the Line, I can’t deny that it’s interesting as the community seems split right down the middle on whether or not it’s viable.
Here’s the version as of this post:
Hold the Line
Improves your critical strike and critical block chance by 10% for 10 sec following a successful parry.
So rather than stick with my gut, I decided to create a Hold the Line “Critical Block” simulator and see just how good or bad my gut is at reading this talent.
