Warriors and Rogues

When it comes to Warriors and Rogues, some boosts in melee damage can always help out in a sticky situation. So, to help your classes out, Blizzard is putting out some great new glyphs and updating some of the older ones that will have you jumping - or slicing - for joy!

Warrior Glyph Updates

Want to know which glyphs will be updated and boosted? Here are the updates that you need to know about:

Glyph of Heroic Strike: Right now, this one only gives you 10 rage when you land a critical strike with this ability. When the update comes out, it will actually increase the chance that you’ll get that crit by 5%.

Glyph of Overpower: The update will add a 100% chance to overpower a parried attack from a target instead of the 50% that it is now.
