Use off cooldown. It generates rage, so don’t use it when at full.
Use when it procs or is off cooldown.
Only use when you have nothing else available. It cost no rage.
Use every thirty seconds. If somebody else is applying the Weakened Blows debuff, don’t worry about it.
Figure out which one your using before starting instance, then buff when needed or when you need rage.
This will be your rage dump. That’s the only time you should be using it.
Pick up the Blood and Thunder talent, then use Thunder Clap to apply Deep Wounds to every target.
This will be your AOE rage dump. Instead of Heroic Strike.
Rest of Rotation
If you need rage, just start doing your normal rotation and use Cleave when your at full rage again.
