Warriors and Ranged Weapons

Upon looking at ranged weapons in Cataclysm, there's one thing that's clear: There's almost no strength ranged weapons.

Of course, having a weapon for only 1 class dropping off bosses isn't a good idea, hence why you hardly ever saw relics in WotLK. However, Relics have changed to allow any relic user equip them.

Maybe it's time to add warriors to the Relic list. Strength Relics already exist for Deathknights and Paladins, so we could just use those. Our Shoot/Throw could be changed so that it scales with Attack Power instead of using our ranged slot.

They could also let us reforge ranged weapon avoidence stats for full amount to dps stats. Problem solved.

Warriors already demand two 2H weapons, not my relics too!

Last time I checked, Paladins DID have wings.

Or just put STR ranged weapons (maybe with terrible DPS to dissuade Hunters) onto Points vendors like they did with Relics. That makes they LIKE a relic without actually BEING a relic.

I think they mentioned something about making all the str ranged weapons tank/dps homogeneous like they will all have either hit/mastery/expretise ect.

Maybe it's my imagination, but I don't recall many Strength ranged weapons in WoLK either. The two from vendors were both Agl, and most the ones I've used out of ICC and other raids are all Agl. As a matter of fact, I honestly don't think I've ever had a Str ranged, at least not at 80

Simple solution to that: thrown weapons. They never worked with our shots, and now we can't even equip 'em for the lulz.

There were only 5 epic ranged weapons with strength in Wrath. There were 2 in Ulduar and 2 in ICC, with Blades of the Sable Cross off a vendor.

Rogues don't need to be screwed over even more.

But that wasn't a problem because we still benfitted from every stat on the ranged weapon. With all of them being agility based we have a problem here due to the fact Warrior now receive very little bonus to agility as opposed to a Hunter or a Rogue.

It's a tricky issue. Personally I'm just going to take the Tank ones and reforge until blizzard comments on the situation.

I used Mimiron's Repeater from Ulduar for a long time, that was a ranged weapon that had Strength on it (I actually remember the raid leader chastising the dumba$$ hunter for sincerely lobbying for the item, twas funny)

I like the idea of STR ranged weapons being bind on equip epics that drop from trash. If you have patience, you can usually pick them up for about 2-3,000 gold on the AH after people have been raiding a while if your guild hasn't seen it drop yet. Spending a couple thousand gold for a solid, powerful stat increase on my raiding gear is always welcomed.

I vote for keeping the oddball items like STR ranged weapons bind on equip from trash mobs. It doesn't interrupt loot tables, and so few of us actually WANT them that they end up being fairly inexpensive at auction.
