Shield Slam

Warrior
I hate to speak out against an ability of my own class but...shield slam is realllly strong. Fighting mobs my own level it almost always leaves them a shot or two away from death. In dungeons it's great and all, but it is making questing just....way to easy. I don't expect much of a challenge in questing mind but, even still.
Shield Slam is very strong, and will always be your strongest ability for single target damage and threat.

That said, it's scaling is currently out of whack at low levels. It is getting nerfed below level 85 in the next push.
Strangely, I am actually kinda glad to hear that.
Yeah because Lazy !@# blizzard can't Hotfix it. lets wait another month so I can enjoy pvp as a lowbie. 4177 Hit shield slam today.
Kind of funny how Blizzard claims not to be concerned with low level balance (just take a look at Rogue Ambushes in lowbie BGs). Yet now Blizzard is nerfing Shield Slam at lowbie levels, the first time i can remember of Blizzard actually balancing a lowbie ability.
Of course, if it's about nerfing Warriors at any stage, then Ghostcrawler is all for it.
wait another month


The patch is on tuesday.

actually balancing a lowbie ability.


You must have not been around for low level Shockadins early this expac. They would literally one shot anyone, was much more OP than prot warriors and was fixed quite quickly. You must also have not been around for penance one shotting people, which was also fixed.
thats why i'm lvling my warrior trough BGs
i'm just having too much fun 1shoting people with shield slam and /gloat them before spirit release.
yep, this is me 1shoting ur lowbie !@# and gloating about it

makes me wonder if paladins are still one shotting people with avenger's shield and doing ridiculous damage with harsh word

you're doin' god's work
Too bad by the time you're 90 prot warrior damage is garbage in PvP and SS is laughable.

Anvenger's Shield and Harsh Word still do hit pretty damn hard. Probably ~25-30% each with a full BoA paladin.
It was great at the 19 bracket. No Heirlooms just blues and greens. And one shotting druids. Then charge to a Warlock and watch the insta fear. but I prefer my big ol' whoopin stick.

we can beat 2-3 at the same time, i believe until we hit 80 at least
Even better is when you have all the healers pocket healing you.

That being said, NERF WARRIORS. :P
