Heroic Throw

Warrior
I still use Heroic Throw on casters just to see if I can make them think they are silenced and not cast anything for 3 seconds. Sometimes it works.
It is funny that there is nothing really Heroic about Heroic Throw... They should rename it:

Wet Noodle
10 yrd ranage (30 yd range if al dente)
Instant 30 sec cooldown
Requires Unidentified Cooking Utensil
Throws a wet noodle at the enemy, causing sad debuff (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=58496).

Thumbs up!

so much win!
And to think Heroic Throw actually used to do decent damage at one point. Mists just ruined it.
Warriors are fine.... if you start taking to much damage go defensive stance, if you can't stay on a target you're either doing it wrong or don't have a healer, not doing enough damage? Get some more gear. Warriors still have a silence it just replaces out howl which you should only use in bg's for the majority, in arena the silence shout is priceless, warriors that had triple silence was causing healers to sit their and tear out their eyeballs and as much as it was funny it needed to be removed, the removal of the avatar freedom was a bit overkill removing it entirely, making it like the paladin freedom would have been better but it was understandable.

1)This post doesn't really bother addressing the original poster's concern with Heroic Throw.
2) Warriors don't have a silence. You have a ranged aoe interrupt which can miss that you have to spec into.
3) Please explain where you get your three silences, unless you are using the term "silence" to mean "interrupt."
4) I'm in agreement with Heroic Throw being a pitiful ability.
As Prot, it's minute damage for okayish threat from a ranged. Which only helps on the pull, but not really by that much, unless the target you are hitting is something that you just taunted and whoever had it before is still building massive threat on it.
As DPS, it's a very weak and awkward filler ability when you literally have nothing else available and don't want to feel like you aren't doing anything.
As PvP, with the silence removal, it is a lot like a DPS warriors except since you aren't focusing on maintain the maximum uptime of damage, but instead are relying on controlled burst, it becomes even less useful except as a means to keep something in combat.
I use the terms DPS and PvP for the field the warrior plays in, instead of arms and fury because they could be doing either, although Fury is definitely the PvE spec atm and Arms the PvP counterpart.
8 Second Root? Hahahahahahahahahahaha
YE JUST MAKE IT AN AOE ABILITIE THAT HITS 700K DIS WILL B GR8 I LUV U IDEA
Fix: Use your other abilities. Do you think I ever fel flame a boss in PvE? Did I Searing Pain anyone last expansion? Do I use shadow bolt as Demo?

There are spells you don't use except under specific circumstances. Get used to it...


This lock again.... The epically retarded responses you come to the forums with is mind boggling.

I ran DS on my lock a lot and used Fel Flame on almost every fight. To many fights in that raid where you are running around fighting multiple targets NOT to use Fel Flame.

I'm guessing as Destro you're talking about the talent that increased Searing Pain's critical strike by 40% on targets below 50%? No one took that talent.

You never used Shadow Bolt as Demo? Not even the free proc that made it instant? Or, are you just picking and choosing from which expac you want to talk about how you had spells you didn't use?

Pretty sure ALL classes have spells they don't use in different specs. HT isn't needed for any spec on a Warrior. Try to wrap your head around that.

This lock again....
The lock is heated because C-Wave was nerfed 33% and now they want my Wet Noodle ability...
For once I actually agree with something, someone said that Heroic Throw should do something like.. .5 second stun. Yes. 3 second silence is too much, but .5 stun is nothing, and it gives us one quick silence. (or just make it an interrupt, but I think .5 seconds of shocked silence works for me) ".. Did he just throw that at me?" Lolol. No, but really. I like the idea.

Makes Heroic Throw useful for something, and it isn't worthy to complain about. Just a quick stop-cast, or something. Beats being a full silence, or a dead skill.

Edit: Removed some curse words. Hehe, sorry. Habit!

You're forgetting it's still very useful for PvE


Spamming Throw does more damage.
very small ranged attack, dont forget we are not supposed to do any damage at range...we are warriors
They should just remove Heroic throw entirely.
Warrior take so few skills to play now you don't even deserve a usefull situational skill such as Heroic throw since you just can't seem to have a clue about how to use it effectively.
How do you even dare complaining when warrior is currently way overpowered. It's the first time in the history of WoW I ever see double warrior being actually semi-viable in duo arena.
Can't believe they made colossus smash back to 100% and whoever made the change to second wind needs to be fired.

?

What are they going to do with this ability now that Gag Order is removed?

30 second cooldown for a 50% weapon damage?

Completely useless for Arms and Fury.

They should put an 8 second root on it.


This is complaining? Please elaborate how we are WAY overpowered. Pretty sure we were WAY underpowered all of Cata.

What does this mean? Running 2's with the same class shouldn't ever happen? Double DK isn't viable? Double Druid, Pally, Mage, ? Pretty sure every class except for maybe Rogue can get to 1500 running same class in 2's.

Because spamming Howling Blast takes skill? What do you do with the DK that takes more skill than I do playing a Warrior?

^ Definition of complaining. I actually agree with the Gag Order nerf and the Avatar nerf to an extent. I think they should have left a 6 second freedom on it but....

My post wasn't aimed at the OP.

Never said it shouldn't happen. Was just pointing out how dual warrior can slug anyone in a global. Will never work in high rating.

Did I say anything take skills? My DK not being my PvP character on a side note. They made panda land 99% passive gameplay.

But warrior as always been an healer dependant class. Since it's very beginning. Healers will give them their movement.
Why I say it's OP? Because 100% ARP is too much. Passive 3% health per second under 35% is too much. The damage on a non colossus smash debuffed target is where it should be. The damage on a colossus smash debuffed target is too high.
