When Attacking things
Have all long duration buffs (including item set skills), food, potions and pet buffs active.

2. Lute or tambourine
3. Caviar Sandwich

5. Explosion of power
6. Morale Boost
7. Savage Power

9. Strong Stimulants
10. Potion of annihilation
11. Tranquillity Powder
12. Energy absorb
Some skills/potions such as numbers 1, 4, 5, 11 can be saved for during fight if required
Attack Rotation
With 5.0.1 is now:
Animal spirit Eclipse for (attack speed boost) then Charged Chop spam...

While healing your pet with elven prayer and making sure it doesn’t do anything bad like stealing aggro from tank, refusing to attack etc

However in longer fights its best to do:

Charged Chop, Animal spirit Eclipse, Charged Chop, Untameable, Charged Chop, Joint Blow etc

This is take advantage of the no gcd on using charged chop letting you do 2 attacks within 1.62 secs (fastest i have pulled this off).

Will only be more advantageous in longer boss fights that dont die quickly otherwise spamming charged chop will do more damage short term

When mob clearing
When hitting multiple targets use frantic briar followed by power of the wood spirit and crowd control skills.
Most cooldown buffs are only 1min 30sec cd so use them when attempting hard mob pulls as well as defensive buffs to survive.
Pets
Chiron the centaur- primary pet for general use
Nature Crystal- use if party will be taking lots of aoe damage or boss mechanics do not allow the use of Chiron (should use the stop command when in use, since abilities is now an aoe around the player now instead of pet)
Oak Walker- use against bosses where you crit almost 90% of the time (should do more dps then Chiron)
Pet commands
Stop stance- makes pet stay in spot and takes no actions unless commanded manually
Follow stance- pet follows player
Attack- forces pet to move closer to target into melee range while casting abilities (if target in certain radius of pet)
Pet ability- will stop pet and cast ability only if in range of target (auto casting will make pet continue to cast while in range)
#Note: pet stances will reset to follow once leaving or entering combat
#Note: Pets do some crazy stuff if you don’t leave combat between mob pulls
Recall pet is your friend: D
Pet attack power and hp
- Pet attack power and hp is directly related to your physical attack and hp at time of summoning and lasts until pet death. Therefore use your savage blessing and physical attack food and all potions and buffs before summoning
Stats, Gear and Runes.

Stats:
Optimal stats are:
- str/pa x3 and stam/pa x3
or if u are lacking gold or hp
- str/hp x2 str/pa x2 stam/pa x2
Gear: prioritise gear that has Pattack as well as crit or lots of Physical attack (for your pets) followed by str, stam and dex from both chain and leather pieces (chain before leather for extra pdef).
Weapons:
- Main hand must be a 2h sword or axe with highest dps preferable (not pdamage)
- Bow/cross bow for instances should be highest dps possible with green str or pattack (no crit) stats while off hand statted. PvP highest dps possible and tiered
Runes:
- Fatal, Wrath, Reconciliation and Aggression for weapons
- Aggression, Might, Block and Potential for armour and accessories

For current end game instance you will want to aim to get to 70k Hit points 70k physical attack and 70% crit rate all unbuffed (3x 70s :P)


Mana Problems
Potential Xs will supply all your mana needs (with phrius potions) or the item set skill Elemental spirit stone essence from dalanis will help you
Scrutinzer
This addon will display your pe’s damage now just waiting for one that will display pet aggro...

Macros

useful macro to swap set skills with one click ie Tranquil wave and Companion


/script JOBINDEX=7 SKILLINDEX=3 SkillSuitFrame_GetSkill_OnClick () ;
/wait 1
/cast Tranquil Wave
/script JOBINDEX=9 SKILLINDEX=2 SkillSuitFrame_GetSkill_OnClick ()

first number is tab your desired is set skill in (from top to bottom) and second is number the set skill is in the tab (from top to bottom as well)



Conclusion
Wardens have lots of interesting skill combinations which can be discovered when mucking about so go kill things :D

or will maybe type up some later :P
