My second question is does intimedating shout aggro as well. If we are out numbered I would like ot use it but fear aggroing more to our spot.
You generate more aggro if you are the first PC the mobs "notice", and even more so if you land the first hit, and you usually Charge into a group (thus drawing more aggro to yourself). Casters will easily override the initial aggro you pick up, but it's a good way to keep it on you for the other melee classes. Movement speed does not have an effect.

Creatures that run into other groups from Intimidating Shout will aggro more on you and it is suicide to use this ability in an instance; it is strictly for soloing.

That is what I thought about intimidating shout.

As far as charging, lets say I am in SM doing Doan (not sexually ) and I charge the first two in the hallway. You are saying it will not pull the next two further down that hall? I was told never to charge because it will aggro the whole room. I said yes if I pick a guy way in the back and my path goes through the whole room but if I just charge to the first two guys I am sure it will just hold aggro and not pull more. Am I bassically right?

Not sure about charge though.
Ya thunder clap is safe to use in the mob that you are fighting but if you are in BFD for example taking on the turtle boss you cannot use thunderclap unless you want to fight the other turtles that may be close.

Thunderclap is great to use on ogres and dwarves since they will pound you very quickly and you need to slow their attack a bit.

My bad, I was thinking of demoralizing shout. Yeah, intimidating shout is suicide

You'll aggro what you would normally aggro, Charge doesn't increase the radius of your aggro or anything. However, if you run through a creature's aggro radius during your charge you will have a new friend. If there are creatures arranged like this:

X X

<- Monsters!


X X



O <- You!

...and you charge the first two, the last two will not aggro unless you are inside their aggro radius. However, if you charge the last two, you will pull all 4 because you'll charge right through the first two.

Right, that is what I told my guildies but they said I was wrong. My reply was "are any of you warriors"? I was then told I don't know how to play a warrior. Sigh So I charged in SM and NOTHING BAD HAPPENED! The only thing that can happen is if your lvl is to low. They will smell you and that aggros not the charge. Thanks for confirming what i already knew but I need another well infromed opinion on this.

Well, plus, you HAVE to Charge! It's 15 free Rage, for chrissakes (21 with Talents)! Sounds like your guildies are a bunch of retards, heh heh.

Yeah, they just never pay attention to warriors. BTW what realm are you on and can I migrate from Elune to yours so I can get in a guild that understands warriors?

Sorry, I'm on Gilneas and I don't think they are allowing people to migrate there (at least I hope not...hearing how bad it is for other servers). You might try looking for a new guild though.

If you're going for that you should go for an Arms 31/Fury 20 build with Axe Spec. Make sure you get Deep Wounds and Impale, and Improved Overpower is REQUIRED. At endgame go for an Arcanite Reaper and you'll be set.

The Honor system is not going to be implemented for PVP UNLESS Blizzard finds that griefing becomes so disruptive as action needs to be taken. As it is, you can only be griefed on a PVP server and frankly there's no point in playing on a PVP server anyway (unless you like corpse runs) so I'd stick with PVE and enjoy Battlegrounds once it comes out.
