Topic Random warrior tips

Lets try to make this both fun and educational. Post random tips for our warrior comrades! PvE and PvP tips are welcome :D
I'll start first:
Heroic Leap into Charge to get that edge you need!
I like this. Please folks, keep it alive!
When tanking (and why not otherwise), don't save your cooldowns for a rainy day. Unless you actually know that there is a huge "ohmygodImdying!" attack coming in which you need to save a CD for, use them when you start taking damage. Less damage taken is always good, and in case of Enraged Regen, it always helps your healer if you regenerate some of the health back, instead of the healer healing you up.
Make someone use slowfall/levitate. Let them jump down a cliff. Wait till they are nearly down.
Jump after them and charge at them. Then finish them off.
You can also do this with a sub rogue, by shadowstepping behind them just before they hit the ground. You get to use one or two spells while falling the rest of it down ;). They will die in the air haha!
Same thing to save yourself, jump down a cliff and:
- Charge in at someone below (check first if there is someone ofc, lol),
- Use intervene when a buddy is down. (don't forget they might use slowfall/levitate ;)),
- Use hc leap when close enough to the ground.
Hc leap seems to work in a lot of cases, lately. It's not as broken as it used to be.
Warlocks and shadowpriests have a high tendency to use deathcoil or psy. horror after charge stun ends, pop spellreflect on charge and watch them get self owned.
If a feral cyclones you in a 1v1, be ready for him to go caster form to apply some hots, trinket the cyclone and charge->throwdown him.
You can spellreflect naturesgrasp on druids with heroic throw.

Keep an eye out for predator's swiftness (feral druids) as it will often allow you to reflect an instant clone -> charge -> throwdown out of that when they are in caster form. In the same way you can attempt to bladestorm an instant cyclone, or use bladestorm as soon as you are dazed in order to avoid their opener.
In 2v2 when playing against a rogue/healer team you can often bladestorm their opener if you cast it 2-3 seconds after your partner was sapped. Doesn't really work against good rogues though.
Edit: when dueling mages, if you mistime your spell reflect (attempt on frostbolt), some mages will cancel their cast and attempt to poly themselves to get health back. Cancel the spell reflection last second by switching to a 2h weapon and get poly'd -> full health.
