Arms warriors in season 15

General Discussion
Do you think Arms warriors will receive the nerf they need in the upcoming PVP season?

Currently Arms is the most powerful DPS class in terms of damage/survivability/utility, and have the highest population of any class in the game by nearly doubling the average. (above 1800)

Hunter damage is a little out of control but seeing as they complain about PVE DPS constantly, it's unlikely they'll see any damage nerfs.

As somebody who mains a shadow priest, I really want to see arms warriors nerfed. Their our hardest counter class. Let me explain something here. Shadow priests aren't necessarily bad because the class is broken, more so they're not viable because of the sheer number of arms comps that can lock a spriest down indefinitely.

So what do you think? Will arms be brought down to a manageable level, or can I expect season 15 to be as miserable as 14? If the latter, I'll likely just let my sub drop.
Why would you want to nerf an already underpowered spec and class?
Warriors needs a buff.
Warrior's don't need a nerf. No bias here at all!
Arms is the only spec for Warrior PVP and
Rogues, Hunters, Mages need more nerfs than we do.

And we already received nerfed. Look at the patch notes.

And if you drop your sub because of Warriors you probably shouldn't play the game.
The could likely stand to get a bigger penalty for sitting in D stance, something like a 10% damage reduction if a shield is not equipped.

Sounds like somebody's butthurt.

The arms nerf is inevitable (and you're full of sh*t if you think they don't need a nerf) it just depends whether it will come next season or in 6.0

I hope you're kidding but your 1300 rating indicates you might be serious.

Arms warriors are OP and if you are having trouble its definitely a l2p issue.

PS gem and chant your gear.
Honestly our damage is pretty powerful at the moment... If anything needs nerfed its that... I think our survival and utility is just about perfect at the moment... really the only class that can just shut us down completely is hunters... but whats new...lol.. I think if they nerfed our damage a bit we would be perfect..
then again... when you put our damage in perspective... all things even (including the player) an Unholy DK or a good Affliction lock can squash our numbers bad... hard to tell..
Our class solely depends on survivability or... a healer. We aren't overpowered. You wanna hear overpowered look at humans racial.

Any class calling Warrior OP is clearly very Underpowered. I in fact can't beat rogues i have no clue why i do more damage than them i play smarter yet i cannot win. And warrior aren't "counter" class to priests We are just better.

Our utility, Ah my little chap here's the story. Rogues.

But Screever you say "What a boot (you are canadian in my story) Your damage?" Well, that's a tale that i tell all the time. Ready to hear it?
warrior are just fine the way they are... rets need a lil buff, monks need a huge nerf, rogue needs a good buff

So now you want me to make a macro with my shield to be equipped when i shield wall and get even more armour?

Honestly that solves no problems, it just makes a hassle for warrior to get a shield and equip it. It's like saying your magic damage reduction bubble should be equipped with a shield doesn't make sense

If you want to weaken warriors then just reduce some of our stats on our gear. Simple and effective.

But what is the point? It's not like every warrior you come across knows how to play right? If so you are having a really bad experience in wow

I can agree with this

Agreed, I haven't seen a pally in Arena for months especially ret. As a fellow ex-pally myself i think you guys should be much more powerful with less emphasis around your holy power as a mana user...

On the other hand rogues are fine atm but the CC gets a bit strange and the survivability is even weirder.

Monks need a big nerf.
if an arms war has the correct macros and is running bladestorm bloodbath then yes the damage is unbleivable but that comes at a cost of lack of stuns.

monks have almost every ability in terms of cc and cleansing and even some small heals.

mages have spammable ccs and unreal damage

rogues have 10 second stun lock silence gouge healing abilities blah blah

my point is that while arms has a crazy burst they have to sit in def stance when we dont have a heals and that leaves us rage starved. i dont see the above mentioned classes with those problems. im not a pro or the best warrior around but those three classes i fear the most when played by people who know what they are doing. every class has counters dont forget. ive been rocked by s priests as well =D
lol, I found this humorous.
I think Warriors are fine.
