I know the stun reduction meta is super sick atm, prolly the best cboice by far. I see alot of other great warrriors using the 3 percent increased crit meta. Anyone think the 2 percent spell damage reduction meta would be worth trying? Since we get raped by casters anyways.

Probably would be worth trying it out.  Makes 400k worth of damage do 392k worth of damage, so I don't know if it will save you, but it might be one of a few little things that makes the difference between life and death?

Right now I feel so squishy that I might try it too.

Does the stun reduction meta gem stack with the orc stun reduction?

cdew etc uses stun reduction meta gem, so pretty sure they indeed stack

The current season is at a very good spot balance-wise. There is a comp variety that hasn't been seen in the game since s8.

The 2% reduced spell damage is next to nothing, the 10% stun reduction is probably the best choice at the moment, but tbh i feel like in most situations it wouldn't save me anyway. When i die in a stun i just get blown up before the stun is even close to ending.. lol.

i like the str/crit one for 2s and stun meta for majority of 3s and double dps 2s. Since there's such a small difference between last season 2/2 and new helm i put different metas in each and don't lose too much stats by putting on old helm if needed.

stun red + orc racial = much better chance of survival vs big bad rogue or mage

I think the new meta gem unlocked at 27k conq points would be better. Esp next patch with the pvp power changes.. the bonus 670ish pvp power and 700 resil is sick

This! I tried stun reduction meta gem myself in the begining of the season and yes, with orc racial it is pretty nice to have but it is not enough to save you from your inevitable death in 3s.  I'm sure if you are a glad capable warrior, you are already next to the pilar with your healer in LOS by the time mage is trying to deep you again after frost bomb.

I changed to 3% increased crit dmg for this reason which I think is pretty huge with our stacked overpowers.  3% increased damage with almost 80% of our overpower, you do the math.  Might as well do more dmg while my healer has the CD to keep me up.  That's how I see it.

We are so much more healer dependent atm compared to last season so I think most important thing in warrior play right now is making sure you don't overlap your defensive CD with your healer's trinket/CD and blow something up before all your team CD are used up.

Oh and please don't say ignorant shit like your current rating blah blah, or S12 glad warrior bullshit.  I'm one of the very few warriors that went past 2300 this season in BG9 along with illoon and laros who initiated this topic.  So no trolling.  We only want constructive feedbacks from fellow good warriors.

Wouldn't the spell reflect be better than the spell reduction if you chose to go that route? reflecting a deep freeze or ice lance would be more damage than the 2% reduction

i could be wrong

Good for healers unless you're a shaman since most caster teams are like lulululul just ride him like a camel.  I'd take reflect on a warrior though.

Sigh...  I knew there would be trolls but he must be one of the shaman I sat the whole game last season. :duckers:  If it was so easy to just sit rsham as kitty cleave and get glad in BG9... I wonder why there was only one team that did it.

At least come to BG9 and play against us if you dare to talk shit about kitty cleave.

Unless this was recently changed Orc Racial and meta do stack, however it is multiplicative. Most people assume it's additive stacking. Therefore orcs probably shouldnt use the meta, especially dpsers.

I'm pretty sure the Spell reflect meta is 1%
