'''Vigilance''' is the new 30-point talent in the Protection talent tree for warriors introduced with [[Patch 3.0.2]]. It replaced [[Shield Slam]], which became a standard warrior ability. It is a buff, applied much like a spellcaster buff such as [[Mark of the Wild]] or [[Power Word: Fortitude]]. Unlike these buffs, however, the warrior cannot cast Vigilance on him/herself.
+
'''Vigilance''' is a [[warrior]] talent available at level 75.
   
 
==Tips and Tactics==
 
==Tips and Tactics==
Vigilance is best put on either the healer or a DPS class which produces the most threat. It helps to have Omen (or a similar threat-tracking addon) or, if the party members don't have Omen, a damage meter addon so you can determine which party or raid member is producing the most threat. This will make it so that they lose a good chunk of the threat they cause, and you gain whatever they lose. The cooldown refresh on [[Taunt]] is useful as well, as it allows you to immediately take the mob off of the party/raid member should you lose aggro, even if you've already used Taunt in the past 6 seconds. Any tanking warrior should keep this on one party or raid member at all times.

Tips and Tactics

Vigilance is best put on either the healer or a DPS class which produces the most threat. It helps to have Omen (or a similar threat-tracking addon) or, if the party members don't have Omen, a damage meter addon so you can determine which party or raid member is producing the most threat. This will make it so that they lose a good chunk of the threat they cause, and you gain whatever they lose. The lack of a cooldown on Taunt is useful as well, as it allows you to immediately take the mob off of the party/raid member should you lose aggro, even if you've already used Taunt in the past 6 seconds.
