Resolve is one of the passive abilities granted to characters choosing a tanking specialization, introduced in Warlords of Draenor as a replacement for Vengeance. The primary difference between the two abilities is that Resolve does not provide Attack Power.

Resolve is a bonus provided to all tanking specializations, ie Blood death knights, Guardian druids (in [Bear Form]), Brewmaster monks, Protection paladins, Protection warriors (in [Defensive Stance]) and Vengeance demon hunters. In general, a tanking specialization is required for Resolve to be granted. However non-Guardian druids can gain Resolve in [Bear Form] by selecting the [Heart of the Wild] talent.

In addition to the specialization requirement, druids and warriors need to be in their tanking forms, namely [Bear Form] and [Defensive Stance] respectively. Changing to a different form (with the exception of [Cat Form]) or stance will prevent additional Resolve from being gained, but will not cancel the existing stacks of Resolve. However [Cat Form] is a specific exception to this and will cause the Resolve effect to be cancelled.

Class specific abilities

Each tanking spec has its own version of Resolve:
