Topic how are warriors in bg pvp?
I heard warriors at the moment are by far the weakest in pvp. I play on playing along side my DK friend and ONLY in bg's not arena. Are warriors not as bad as people say or are they really suffering atm (bear in mind I play an ele shaman as my main in bg pvp)
Thats good to know, cheers guys. From all the complaining I was under the impression warriors were almost 'broken' in pvp, people in my guild and my realm have been saying they are the worst pvp class there is. Good to know they are wrong :)
I've just written a post about Prot Warrior PVP, it's detailed and beneficial I hope. Here's the link to it, hope it's helpful.
Pretty poor, grip is horendous, i played mine again for lols this morning,
average pvp ilvl 397, and met a mage, he did so many mistakes and i couldnt do jack to stop him
he tried to open with poly which i reflected, he trinketed??
root, root, root, finaly reached him with Int shout,
he blinked, i charged & stunned, (his trinket was on cd from the reflect poly)
he came out of it about 50% (30k+ abosorb shields <3)
massively outplayed him to this point, and he dropped Ring of Frost, which i then bladestormed out of,
rooted several times after, reflected a 40k shatter back in his face, outplayed this fool yet again
then nearly killed me in 2nd deep... after outplaying him about 10,000%
TLDR, sick of the lack of mobility on this class, sick of the grip, hamstring is so uber rubbish,
why cant you even put a hamstring on someone who already has a snare??
sick of reaching a target to hamstring & refresh rend & they're already out of range with me spamming my pericing shout.
Warrior dmg isnt even that brilliant unless you have 3x lambs up, sick of looking at 20sec reflect cd when rooted 5x in the duration.

Warriors are not very popular in pvp.
That doesn't mean that they are impossible to play, and there are some very SICK warriors in 3v3.. even on the tournament realm (Check Braindeadly he sometimes plays 3v3 /w a warrior)
But they are pretty much useless without any support ;)

Good against mongaloids
Bad against Non-mongaloids
Most people in random bg's tend to be inexperienced so overall on avarage you'd probably just have good and bad games.
The class as an individual however is very poor, low mobility / ability to stay on a target with the current amount of slows, snares, stuns etc (looking at you mages).
Also fairly low utility which matters allot in a games with a high number of players like bg's do.
Edit: as others have said, if you happen to have a healer friend looking to do bg's too you will have a blast.
