It is really easy for Blizz to give warrs more baseline dmg, give them weps with faster attack speeds or an ability to increase wep attack speeds. or you could give them passive 5-10% buff but 15% nerf on burst
I didn't refute that at all. It is impossible to hit 100k with Swave. If you pop all CDs and crit with Swave you'll hit approx 45k, as in more than 10-15k.
Last I checked changing the weapons that warriors have used since launch is a major change. There is no such thing as a burst stat. You'd have to remove crit and therefore make Reck useless. Like I said already, I've had long debates on the beta forum about this.
Warriors already took their nerf. We had a 15-20% nerf across all our main abilities. We also lost our ability to get on our target (or escape) with Heroic Leap root break. I said this during beta and I'll say it again; I'd rather have the baseline dmg and the root break but that isn't Blizz's design for warriors.
I mentioned early in beta that people weren't afraid of warriors anymore. Now they are and that is fueling our success. I don't know how many times I watched Venruki nova while Avatar was up or sit Reck instead of PoM poly with a blanket on healer. This is a joke that used to be ridiculed if a player did these type of things. Now the top players in the world can't remember how to beat a warrior? (the funny thing is Venruki won this match even though his druid healer didn't Sym anyone)
Reck is still the same and think old Bladestorm when Avatar is up except we can be stunned, poly'd, ect, as well as still being able to be disarmed. Swave can't hit its target if you stand on the warrior or anywhere behind him. I don't know how many times I've made a warrior miss Swave.
I was the first person saying warriors needed to be looked at. Now I see this is the direction that Blizz wants warriors to go. I still say Reck is too bursty. On the other hand it is a 5 min CD.
This is not a "warriors are fine, l2p" thread. This is a "The truth about warriors" thread. I'm tired of seeing the "OMG warrior hit 300k on me" threads.
