Common Glyph selections and utility
Protection (PvE Tanking)
The type of tanking you do determines the type of glyphs you choose. Glyph of Blocking is generally considered the most significant.
- This is a highly-recommended glyph. 10% more damage blocked and more free threat on your most frequently-used ability makes this glyph an absolute must.
- Very handy for AoE tanking, applying sunders to mobs without having to swap targets.
- Used alone, this glyph is useful for single-target tanking, however if combined with Glyph of Sunder Armor, your Devastate ability will apply two stacks of Sunder Armor to your current target, as well as one to a secondary target. Again, very handy for AoE tanking.
- Boosts DPS by giving you a free Heroic Strike, letting that Rage be spent elsewhere.
- When paired with the glyph above, a great way to generate extra Rage.
- Properly specced, Thunder Clap is a mere 8 Rage.
- A free 20 Rage every minute lets you pull out some more tricks without loss of HP.
- For AoE Tanking.
- Increases Commanding Shout by 2 minutes.
Revenge and Heroic Strike glyphs are more suited for main tanks on raid-boss fights, while Sunder and Cleaving are better suited for trash clearing and heroic 5-man dungeons.
Arms (PvE DPS)
Dependent on your talents however, you could also use:
As only gives 10% increased damage, this 10% could prove to be less than an entire second Overpower.
