In this article, we list the buffs, debuffs and useful abilities that a Protection Warrior brings to a raid. We also list equivalent buffs and debuffs that other classes provide.

Taunt Icon Taunt Gives you threat equal to whoever is currently on top of the target's threat table, and forces the target to attack you for 3 seconds. If you are already at the top of the threat table, then it has no effect on threat.
Challenging Shout Icon Challenging Shout Forces all enemies within 10 yards to attack you for 6 seconds. Unlike Taunt, it has no effect on threat.
Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap Allows you to leap to a target location (within 40 yards), dealing a small amount of damage when you land.
Heroic Throw Icon Heroic Throw This is your only ranged ability. It deals a small amount of damage, silences your target (if Gag Order Icon Gag Order is talent), and applies a stack of Sunder Armor Icon Sunder Armor with the appropriate glyph. Note that it also resets your swing timer, so it should not be used unless you cannot reach the target to melee it at the time.
Disarm Icon Disarm Disarms the target for 10 seconds. It is excellent against melee trash mobs, and in some rare cases works against bosses as well.
Pummel Icon Pummel Interrupts the target's current spell cast. Also silences the target for 3 seconds, if Gag Order Icon Gag Order is talent.
Shield Slam Icon Shield Slam Offensive magic dispel
Crowd Control
Charge Icon Charge Charge towards an enemy mob, stunning it for a short amount of time and generating a small amount of rage.
Concussion Blow Icon Concussion Blow Single-target stun
Piercing Howl Icon Piercing Howl Enables you to slow all the enemies around you, making it ideal for kiting (only available if Piercing Howl Icon Piercing Howl is talented).
Shockwave Icon Shockwave AoE stun
Intervene Icon Intervene This is basically a friendly Charge Icon Charge. It moves you to the friendly player's location, reduces their threat by 10%, causes the next white attack made against them to be made against you instead, and reduces the damage that they take by 30% for 6 seconds (thanks to Safeguard Icon Safeguard).
Victory Rush Icon Victory Rush This ability is enabled after dealing a killing blow. It costs no rage, is instant cast, does not require a melee weapon to be equipped and it heals you for a large amount of your health. Sadly, there are not a lot of situations where you can get killing blows during raids.
