Players everywhere love the Warrior train. Perhaps second only to the Boon Prot backline, it's one of the favorite components of top guild strategies. Its popularity rests on a combination of constant pressure and deadly spikes, at the cost of staying in melee range.

Because the Warriors want to unload adrenaline-charged attacks on their target, they will continue to chase, resulting in a long line that literally looks like a train. Think of the target as a locomotive, pulling attackers along behind him. In voice chat, Monks often call out "Warrior train on six!," which lets the team know a Monk needs help fending off an assault.
