Can you just post a blog for every class already so everyone can get their "I am very disappointed" and "Blizz dont have a clue about class x" comments up and have done with it? Happened with every one so far, and I'm sure it will happen on all the rest.
I'm new to WoW, warrior is my second toon. I fear for what little rage I have in PVE. Still, its a fun class to play- I do find it a lot more challenging that my pally, which I had first, to learn to play this game.Maybe it's the first class to be made endangered and rendered extinct to make room for bigger and better hero classes via the nerfoholics at Blizzard. An MMORPG dinosaur...hmmm...
It read like "warriors as tanks are doing great, I don't get the complaints... oh there's DPS warriors? Really? Huh, well, I'm sure they're fine..."Seriously, warrior DPS is not in a good place right now. I can see how it would look fine in theory to them, but in reality... there's strong reasons why people select hard for ranged over melee dps in a group, and while the other melee dps classes seem to have enough other abilities to overcome that, warriors don't. Melee dps can't compete if it's only doing the same numbers as the ranged... there's keeping up with kited targets, keeping behind the target to avoid parry, targets that blink/jump/teleport, running out of novas...etc. As for rage, a significant help would be making a number of the rage-generation talents automatic, especially Improved Berserker Rage.And warriors need self-healing badly. Enraged Regeneration is great, but it needs to be available about 60 levels earlier than it is now, and maybe eitherhave a 2min instead of 3min CD., or not require an active Enrage effect...Bloodsurge needs work... I'll stop now.
As for the shouts, I completely disagree with the devs. "Class lore" aside, I see no reasonable purpose to keeping warrior buff-shouts (all two of them) at a standard 2 minute duration while paladins keep their blessings at 30 minutes when they both offer the same bonus.ageed. That is a pretty lame excuse.Theyre meant to be used in combat!What!Ok fine, so make the radius bigger then, I really dont mind casting in combat but no one is gonna snuggle upto my rear to get my ap buff. Make it so we dont have to waste preciouse talent points to get a half way decent radius lol
