Not the right change indeed... who ever comes up with these kinda brain dead ideas?...

I guess we're back to one shot wonder w/ cds again and hit like a wet noode until you have CS up and enuf rage to slam away.

Guys, make sure you don't trinket anything before warrior pops swifty on you next patch! cuz you will be dead in next global as your healer trinkets like 3 sec cc.

I think it'll be ok IF Avatar/CDs are toned down in power/cool down.

The Arms rotation in pve at the moment is pathetic. Blizzard is trying to fix it. And in order to make it worth wild to potentially waste TfB procs, Slam has to hit hard. The idea behind the Arms spec priority was to always use Slam more during CS to optimize damage during it... But as you can see from the buff to Slam, they were off their mark by a decent amount.

Blizzard is clearly trying to adjust the Arms rotation. And it is PTR.... So it could also change any time.

Things can change quite rapidly when damage tuning starts.

its not on ptr yet so i havent been able to test damage, i think a 100 rage cs windows with full cd's will be incredibly deadly, more so than ascendance..

hard to tell yet without it being deployed on ptr.


ascendance is like 500k damage in two globals if crits.

And enhancement/ele shamans are likely going to receive a pvp only damage nerf.

That's the only thing that worries me a bit about the current change to Slam. If it were to get a pvp only nerf. Warriors are already hit hard with CS being reduced in pvp.

Are we the only class to bitch about getting nice buffs even when we are barely (lol) viable? At this point I'm not willing to look a gift horse in the mouth.

LOL ^^ Yeah but still bad change is a bad change.

I don't want my skill to be solely dependent on timing my one shot.

Storm blast hits for about 150k if both weapons crit currently on live. So 300k in 2 globals that 8 sec apart. Not disagreeing that it's gay, but Stop exaggerating like a women

I really wish you could have taken part in the making of MoP. More thoughts like this could have really saved the game.

What 45 rage dawg... Slam has been 20 rage since 5.2 so it's 30 rage with this change and you can easily ms+3 slam or 4 slam in cs window.

You know what else is gay about this change? Every warrior would have almost the same rotation after CS as long as they know how to control rage before the burst. So no difference in max burst output between 1500 war and 2500+ war.

i took these shots on the ptr weeks ago. add 50% damage onto the full cd slam and tell me if i do that 4 times in a cs window i wont do more than 500k

bad math 165k slam + 50% damage = 240k damage slam x4, looks like we are breaking the 1 mil club.

yolo swag~ you will have fun slamming for awhile and then it gets nerfed down to shit cuz too many qq, so we go back to being useless for the rest of the expansion. yey~ :0

man... I'm becomming so pessimistic playing warrior... maybe it's time for me to quit warrior or quit wow period... I can't imaging myself playing something other than warrior in wow.
