Last Stand is a warrior ability learned at level 38 for those with the Protection specialization. It is a short duration self-buff that temporarily adds 30% of the Warrior's maximum health for 20 seconds. At the end of this time, this health is removed.
Tips and Tactics
- A good panic-button measure, but try to think ahead to when the 20 seconds is up. Best used on the last fight of an encounter you simply have to survive.
- This ability can save the raid during a boss fight or an unprepared pull on trash mobs. Make sure to let the healers know you used it as a warning to keep your health up because the effect will end and the extra health will be gone in 20 seconds.
- Can be used in conjunction with . This will increase your total health and thus increase the amount of health regenerated. This technique only works if you are less than full health when you start (true of most health gain techniques).
