Anyone else seeing this? First day of arenas, Warriors are globaling all.


That's only true when you're talking about a fully honor geared warrior with 1-2 pc of conq gear going up against players in crafted blues with a couple pieces of honor gear (or less).

Don't judge based on gear disparity. Warlocks are actually the highest damage potential in arena right now, destro and UA (doesn't matter) both extremely high and pretty similar (maybe UA is slightly ahead but hard to judge yet).

Playing against shadowplay with multiglad spriest and shaman from my server with a totally new warlock on their team the lock doubled the spriests damage (spriest was slightly above me but my gear is bad in comparison) every single game and we played at least 5 games against eachother. The lock is mglad on his rogue but by no means experienced as a warlock as this is his first season, he shouldn't be doubling the mglad spriests damage, that is insane. Especially since we spent the majority of our time ON the warlock or shaman because spriests are just so hard to kill until they do the lifeswap.

Looking at all these posts... If they nerf warriors or any other class before they nerf Mages or Warlocks i'll probably just quit.


Are you joking? I have no problems with mages and warlocks. Sure they deal lots of damage but they also take a lot. As for the warriors hitting too hard; I completely agree that they needed a buff but I'm not sure that they needed such a big buff that they can 1 shot people..

What you have here is once again a design philosophy that is based upon giving warriors a weakness to CC and relatively lower uptime as a reasult, but at the same time giving us devastating damage when we are able to catch a target and do damage.
Until this philosophy changes, warriors will once again be strong at start until multiple nerfs to our burst (without any adjustments to our uptime) will make us useless like cata all over again.

heres a combat log SS of what happened to me during arena today

im at 55% resil, and based off how it scales, current numbers and the PTR, getting above 65% reduction is going to be nearly impossible with full gear.

that warrior in the SS is also using a blue sword from a random heroic, wtf is going to happen when warriors get their tier 2 weapons? do you think damage is going to magically sort itself out once players get a few extra % worth of resil in full gear?

They are absolutely completely broken, yes.

I literally was at 10% one match vs warrior disc (the disc wasn't even dpsing me) before I could control my character after the initial charge.


I didn't hit you THAT hard

Blizzard essentially took all the stunlock crap from rogues and gave them to warriors, and yet if you visit their forums, they STILL think that they've been nerfed to the ground. Crazy..

Warrior players have always had a persecution complex. They always believe they're the weakest class when they're almost always a top tier class.


Accept, when they aren't, which was every season but the first in Cata. www.arenastats.com still shows where warriors were standing. 2% and dead last? Thats a top tier class? How is dead last top tier?

I havn't had the time to level my warrior, and I definetely hope to see things be balanced, but its day 2 of the season... Relax folks.

I hope you're not basing that opinion on this character, because you've never been past 1500 rating... I mean you DO need to have some perspective before being allowed to just spew BS.
