Macros & Addons
Protection Warrior Enchants
In Legion, only necks, cloaks, and rings can be enchanted. There are shoulder and glove enchants that help with professions, but they have no combat implications.
Recommended Protection Warrior enchants:
Enchant Neck - Mark of the Heavy Hide
Enchant Neck - Mark of the Trained Soldier
for defense (Trained Soldier is more reliable but not as big an effect),
Enchant Neck - Mark of the Hidden Satyr
to maximize DPS.
Enchant Cloak - Binding of Strength
Enchant Cloak - Word of Strength
Enchant Ring - Binding of Haste
Enchant Ring - Word of Haste
Without a Garrison-like system in Legion, players must acquire their enchants from Enchanters. For crafters, recipes in Legion require different quest chains, and once completed, enchants can be made at low levels. Learn more about Enchanting in our
Legion Enchanting Guide
Protection Warrior Gems
The best Protection Warrior gem option is
, followed by
as an inexpensive substitute.
Saber's Eye of Strength
are probably not a DPS increase compared to
, and certainly not compared to
Gem sockets have a small chance to be found on all gear in Legion, including raid bosses, world bosses, world quest loot, and dungeon loot. Rings and necks crafted by Jewelcrafters have a 100% chance to have a socket.
Jewelcrafters who complete
To Dalaran, With Love
can also create BoE epic gems that offer +200 of a primary stat.

Legion Jewelcrafting Guide
Flask of the Countless Armies
will be the best choice for most situations, but
Flask of Ten Thousand Scars
is an option when tanking bursty content.
Potion of Prolonged Power
is the best potion option for tanks most of the time.
Flasks can be crafted by a level 110 Alchemist that has completed the questline for the Malloric Burette Assembly. Learn more about Alchemy questlines in the
Legion Alchemy Guide
Suramar Surf and Turf
Note that in Patch 7.2,
Lavish Suramar Feast
have been significantly buffed and provide more stats than before. Haste food is probably a slightly better option for Protection Warriors.
Food can be crafted by any player with the Cooking profession that has learned the Legion recipe from either questing or Nomi's Discovery Table in Legion. Learn more about acquiring recipes in the
Legion Cooking Guide
Defiled Augment Rune
are another stat consumable and can be earned through LFR difficulty raids,
Shattered Satchel of Cooperation
and Order Class Hall Missions. You will have a chance to get extra
Defiled Augment Rune
when the Command Center is active on the Broken Shore. Learn more about the Command Center's perks in the
Broken Shore Buildings Guide.
Starting in Patch 7.3, once you reach Exalted standing with
Army of the Light
, you will be able to acquire
Lightforged Augment Rune
, a renewable source of
Defiled Augment Rune
