Nerfing warriors without taking it too far

I think most players can agree that warriors are overpowered right now and need some toning down. However I hope that unlike in cataclysm the changes don't change the class too severely. So with baseline skills I think defensive stance needs to have it's baseline damage reduction nerfed as arms/fury spec probably to 15% (although we do have to see when more than a select few players have weapons before we can know if this is actually needed) Our burst needs to be reduced quite a bit, I suggest giving a tied cd of 20 seconds to avatar and recklessness. Avatar's immunity is somewhat over the top as well, it should be reworked to have it give the warrior immunity to the next three movement impairing effects to reduce mage tears. That should appropriately reduce warrior's obscene burst to reasonable levels without making them useless.

so your saying every 3 mins (avatar) we get 3 escapes from movement imparing effects
things like piercing howl that are spamable clear that buff in 3 sec

we get a massive damage burst every 5 mins... in pvp 5 mins is a long time
and in arena any decent team knows how to counter it. its not easy to counter but u can do it

Warriors aren't any more OP than any other DPS right now. People are just too dumb to know how to get around it.
