This must be a troll or some kind of terrible late night comedy joke. Starting with this garbage right here
Avatar of course, in my opinion this single nerf as taken warriors from possibly the top or 2nd best PvP class to the near bottom. (Maybe even lower than rogues from 5.0)
Just to clarify you think that 20 seconds of being immune to movement impairing affects while dealing 20% increased damage and gaining infinite rage for spamming heroic strike is totally balanced? Yes yes thats fine and dandy I understand you finally felt like you could move past that 1750 bracket with this amazing Talent alone. If only they would have given warriors more mobility when they nerfed this skill right? Ele Shamans, Rogues, Ret Pallys, Monks, and DKs are at the bottom of the PVP chain sorry to break it to you but Warriors are more mobile, have more cc, survivability and damage cooldowns than all of these classes put together. (Exageration. not really)
Not only do we get played with like a rag doll now with every class having an unlimited supply of slows and only takes 2 roots to lock us down now, .
Spot on. Really some good wise raging right here. As a rag doll I assume you are referring to the tiny window in time where your 12 second charge is on cooldown along with your 20 second cooldown four second stun and not to mention your 30 second cooldown Heroic Leap which crits for 50-80k with cooldowns up? Or you must be talking about the fact that after your 12 second charge you get rooted, proceed to Safeguard to your banner as a second charge to connect to your enemy once again and now only have 7 or 8 seconds before you can use charge again assuming Heroic Leap in on CD. You are totally right tho. Maybe charge shouldnt have a cooldown since you know.. Roots and Snares have none. OR MAYBE you should think about putting hamstring on your bars. I know its a tough concept to have to use an ability that doesnt do damage when you finally connect to your ever so slippery enemy.
Blizz thought it would be funny to make us rage starved again by taking away Avatar’s +30% rage generation.
With just this one part of Avatar’s nerf you are taking away our ability to have some extra rage to use for Execute, Shattering throw, Raging Blow, Wild Strike, etc. This nerf alone cut about 35% into my bursting ability.
How dare Blizzard take away the only ability which allowed you to gain Rage at a rapid rate. HOW DARE THEY FORCE YOU TO NOT SPAM HEROIC STRIKE. Blasphemy for Warriors. Making Mortal Strike/Colossus Smash/Overpower free to cast were simply not enough. Heroic Strike needs to be spammed because damage is just not there. What a concept, to NOT use Heroic Strike unless above 60 Rage while you are passively doing damage. I imagine you have never seen a Taste for Blood stack past 1, or maybe you weren't even aware these stacks existed! Always happy to help fellow Warriors with class mechanics. I have to say the ONLY part I don't agree about this is the 35% bursting nerf. Heroic Strike is easily 80% of your burst with your infinite mongrel damage cooldowns hitting for 150K-250K. Oh wait thats right you dont use stacks.
Now on to Gag Order, WHO THE HELL NEEDS A SILENCE FOR PvE?!?!? Now I’m sure only true warriors know this but we have had Gag Order since WtLK
If you have any interest in Blizzard making PVP balanced again you will never talk about Gag Order again. Yes we had it in Wrath, but other than the fact that as Arms it was only used with Heroic Throw, you also had to spec out of Piercing Howl and Blood Craze (Health Regen) in order to go into the Prot tree. NOW not only do you not have to worry about loosing any additional skills or survivability but you also are given TWO silences. But your totally right, Casters should not be able to cast at all. Shockwave into a Silence into another Silence to stop every single cast being thrown at you is totally balanced. And hey look Shockwave is off CD again and Silence isn't DRd anymore lets rotate those abilities every 20 seconds and make whoever we are training unable to play their class.. you know cuz we are WARRIORS RAWR.
