Prot is being nerfed tomorrow right?

100 Blood Elf Rogue
Because I like to level my alts through pvp and I am getting really sick of being globaled by some fool with a shield, or getting rolled by 5 prot warriors and a priest.

Obligatory "pvp is not balanced around low levels" blah blah blah. I don't care, it's still irritating, and blizz has balanced stuff like it before.

5 prot warriors and a priest.

6 of any class will roll you. Don't know why you expect to be able to take on 5 windwalkers and a resto druid.

Shield Slam now receives a 50% bonus to attack damage from attack power (down from 100%) for Warriors below level 85.

I'm pretty sure patches don't hit on Sundays.

By tomorrow I meant in the sort of spatial sense wherein time seems to bend around and makes it feel like it's freaking Monday already.

well to be honest, you'll still get rolled by 5 guys with shields.

The nerf from some numbers I've seen only equates to a 20% damage reduction at levels for shield slam below 85.

so yeah...

I have a feeling that reducing shield slam damage by 50% won't do as much as some people think it will, below say....70.

INB4 Changes do nothing for prot at low levels.

Honestly this "oneshot" mechanic behind SS has made low level BG's fun for me on the few classes i still am playing in the lower brackets. Most recently my mage has been my focus and let me say that I've had warriors see me and just focus me entire games because of how i've outplayed them.

Its funny when a BG has 3 of them and they chase me and dont bother trying to kill the others who are within range. Makes for some hilarious /w after matches and a few good memories.

Lol im sorry did my sheild hurt you. Honestly she does have room to complain. One on one i think ive only lost to one shadow priest. And he wasnt good he was damn !@#$ing good. Even other prot wars got rolled. Healers went splat. If its only 20% reduction then theres still going to be issues. And with the 5 v 1 ive done that and lived on this guy in a couple bg's in the 60's. Trying to protect the flag. I still ended up walking out with the flag with the room empty. And all of them had as much gear as i did.

I was just in a WSG were the alliance had 5 prot warriors and we had 1.

5 prot warriors turned into two after we got the first cap.

To be honest they seemed like a bunch of bads who didn't really know what they were doing.

you are the lame prick that goes after the guy who just lost a leg in battle, !@#$ you. Prot will still %^-* on you piece of !@#$ rogue.

If you were any good at pvp you would be going after frost mages, not a class that will be completely out of pvp scene this coming patch with our only viable pvp spec being prot and that being nerfed. I like horde but if I see you in an rbg I make sure you eat dirt before anyone lame !@#$
