You don't mention Stance Dancing so I'm going to assume this is a basic guide for not stance dancing, why 2 Points in Tactical Mastery? You never need to switch stance unless stance dancing or needing to Mitigate a hefty chunk of damage. You don't use Heroic strike as it comes, and slam isn't for when HS is on CD. HS if you have BT or are over 75 rage (60 if you have 2PT13 and in Inner rage) use slam if you are under the HS requirements. In 4.0.6 Mastery was after a lot of simcrafting proven better than crit, barely, but in 4.3 Mastery>Crit by far. Why? The stats increase from our gear from FL and DS provide us with enough Str that our Opportunity Strikes (our mastery) end up dealing more damage than Crit. Another reason is because our Mastery has a chance to proc Gurth, which is a huge DPS increase added on top of the just explained mastery increase. Expertise is below Mastery because even if we get Dodged/Parried it gives us a free Overpower, doesn't need to be ignored though. it's unadvised to take Blitz as a talent because on mob pulls that extra charge target may break an important CC, plus in fights such as Ragnaros, Throwdown is a superior choice.

In ur single target rotation, HS is before Slam and thats a totall bulshit. In addition, on our server Slam is even more efficient than on a global. If u will have a rage for that, u could even go for MS - 3x slam - MS rotation with a great result, which actually shouldnt be that way.

Honestly, to prevent breeding utterly bad Warriors you should rather close it :D The level of inaccurate guidance this holds would even terrify Satan himself.
