Holy was top representation for pretty much all of wrath in all 3 brackets, especially 2s and 5s. Top 2-3 in 3s.

Quit crying about fury. It's bottom 3 DPS in every pve fight, it's not going to get nerfed.


Incorrect. Warlocks have always eaten nerfs while being the lowest pure DPS for most of WotLK due to burst potential. If your burst is too high it will be nerfed and in this case I expect it to happen. Hopefully warriors will be compensated in other ways to stay competitive in PvE.


Well other then good mobility and dmg, what would be the point of bringing a Warrior over say a Feral? Right now Warriors do good dmg and have good mobility... so nerf the dmg.. and hmmm... why bring an Arms Warrior over a Feral Druid? Who does just as good dmg and has as good or better mobility, along with solid sustainability, and solid CC. What would Warriors bring to the table? MS..? lol.. yeah that iconic ability went by the wayside.

surely you can admit that there is a middle ground between 'obviously too high' burst damage and 'very strong' burst damage, right?

assuming the warrior burst was 'very strong' and not 'too strong', you would bring the warrior to any comp that is going to focus on burst damage and would have a need to target swap over a feral. in place of a feral on any team with a resto druid.

it was cute, and balanced.

its balanced because everyone can roll a warrior.

Yeah, but the question still remains, if they're doing less burst, in line with classes that have the same burst, but those other classes bring utility like CC or huge mobility like Feral Druids, why bring the warrior? And don't say Throwdown, because that isn't a good enough reason.

As far as Fury goes(and arms), both are trailing in PvE, so if anything our damage has to go up.

no, my point was that they can still have superior burst without having broken burst. there is a sweet spot there. similarly, feral can have superior sustained pressure without having broken sustained pressure. these each are and should be strengths of the respective specs, but i think most people would agree that both are too high right now.

it could be that one or both of these two situations (arms high burst and feral high sustained) will be fixed automatically as people transition into more pvp gear/less pve gear. my point is simply that such a balance point exists and the specs should be tuned toward that.
