To the point
I see so many put their faith in MoP on this forum, but i havent even seen any constructive debate or sugestions on the topic.
I hope it will come, because its really nessecery since it is this the devs use to derrive information for changes. (Yes that has acctually been known to happen, been here for 6 years and acctually saw 2 of my own suggestion bear fruit, im not claiming to be the only one who suggested them though)
We cannot expect them to come up with evrything themself since they clearly dont put that much effort into warriors for the time beeing (/small rant)
So far it looks like MoP is gonna leave warriors even weaker than now (I know, its too soon to say)
But their whole first impression layout gives a clear picture, they for some apalling reason thinks warriors are not squishy and needs their selfheals reduced even further by removing field aid talent and forcing us to choose between ER and Second Wind or the new 10%/30sec VR.
Shieldblock also goes completely out the window and SR keeps its long 25sec cd.
First they made SW useable without shield but then changed it back to Shield requirement.
While i support the idea of a warrior fighting with his shield, and even wish they would bring SS and SB back, the truth is that it makes no sence to punish us with an "Oh !@#$" button that not only is weaker than some classes that allready do better than us, but wich also lowers our pressuer by roughly 70% ( bringing Shieldslam back to arms and buffing its dammage during Shieldwall duration would somewhat compensate this)
I have seen 4 Wow releases, and truth is, initial designline rarely changes much.
In my opinion, they need to pull the warrior developer off the D3 barbarian where hes very evidently currently working. (warrior forum suggestions have been implementet on the barbarian class)
The only real improvement seems to be the Skull Warbanner,
I dont get all the excitement ppl put out over Avatar, its disarmable and CC'able, the tooltip indicate that it only grants immunity to slows & roots in its current form.
I dont belive TG+bladestorm is gonna happen, if it does it will probabley only hit with mainhand.
To look on that from a humorus side, we allready have:
-A "disarm me now!" skill
-A "Focus & Nuke me now!" skill
- in MoP we will get a "CC me now!" skill
well... you cant acuse them of not keeping in line with the excisting warrior playstyle when MoP comes out ;D
What is in my oppinion wrong with Warriors in pvp atm?
-They lack utillity and self sustained gameplay.
-They offer next to nothing for viable teamplay.
-They have clunky and poor defensive and cooldowns, and a offensive burst that is so inferior to the other classes that its beyond odd that it still remain in this state.
The suggestion part:
-Personnaly i would like to see something like the prot talent safeguard beeing tweaked and made baseline for warriors, a team component not just raw dmg like they started out with in Cata.
-Bring Shieldslam back to arms and buffing its dammage during Shieldwall to raise pressure abit during hard focusfire on the warrior, We know you devs are allready aware of this since you briefly removed the shield restriction on SW in ALFA, so here, I offer you a solution you havent seen before.
have many more but theyve allready been sugested so no need to make an allready long post any longer.
I hope you enjoyed reading.
