I do completely outskill my opponents, thanks for the compliment!
Nah, but that wouldn't be right if I ended it like that. Yeah, dynamic pvp situations happen. Having more tools to stop opponents would be great right? If you don't clash with any silences on your arena team, I would give it a 9/10. That makes it the second best glyph in my opinion.
Gag order is fantastic. I happened to play with a shadowpriest on my team. They didn't mix well (for context I tried the old talent trees, not in the glyph form but they are the same). That doesn't mean that gag order is bad, it just wasn't for me. If you can get it to work for you, even while playing with other silencing classes - great!
I just don't see the logic behind telling a new warrior that gag order is a mandatory glyph, when it isn't. If they got some information from the guide (and these conversations no doubt), they would see that gag order is very powerful glyph. They might seriously consider picking it up to, and doing some arena with it. They also just might do some non-rated battlegrounds, and maybe hindering strikes + enraged speed might be what they like.
You are assuming too many things from players, like if they PvP they must be doing arenas.
I have an issue with the macros, it seems a lot of them are Pre MoP as they still have stance changes in them. With all the skill being usable in any stance except for shield reflect and shield wall which just requires a shield change, I see little incentive to change stance out of defensive stance which reduces damage by 25%. Am I right at all with these conclusions or is there still benefit to going with the other stances.
Can you just explain me the "2-4 shotter"?
Good stuff so far, do I get a cookie for being one of the threads you referenced (Cata Arms PvP Guide)? :)
Few tidbits I would mention:
- Your Macro section seems to be lacking in a few important areas
/ Safeguard macros for general good team-play
/ Focus macros for useful stuff such as focus interrupts, focus charge, etc
/ Your burst macros seem to waste Berserker Rage a lot which leaves you susceptible to CC
- Addons, you left out Gladius? One of the old, popular addons that many people use for Arena
- ToC include hyperlinks to the individual posts within your guide so that people can navigate to the exact section quickly and easily
- Enchant & Gem items / hyperlinks utilizing the WoW Item / wowhead functionality
- Consider separating the #3 into a few sections. Later in MoP people will want to swing by to quickly refresh their memory on Stat weight, hit/exp caps and things of that nature and you can make it easier for them to find with a little more organization
- Similar separation between Macros and Addons. Some Macros are mandatory whereas Addons are much more optional so it may be useful to pull those apart
All in all it looks like a good start. A little lacking in some areas and a bit much in others but I tend to expect that if you refine it over time it would be a great help to pvp interested Warriors.
I was actually just going to ask about this. More (or less technically) specifically, who, what, when, where and why?
Here how i work it...In pvp (if im going to be the focus of being attacked, hard to perdict but thats all you can do) i use fury stance, as getting attacked increased the rage i generate..thus the rage starvation when someone is attacking me is almost non existant.
Battle stance i use for PvE, sometimes for pvp depending on the situation..as you get rage generation for white (normal non special) attacks..probably the one i use the most.
Defensive stance is just that..when i get to around 30% and my second wind pops on, i immediatly hit my shield wall/defensive stance/1h & shield macro. And if i continue to get hit i will use rallying cry or one of my defensive banners.
