I'm psyched about the expansion but was quite disappointed when I saw the warrior level 100 talent.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Blade Barrier
Passive

When you Whirlwind or Thunder Clap, whirling blades continue to spin around you for 30 sec. These blades do 1000 damage every 1.00 second to all enemies within 8 yards.

Ravager
40 yd range
0.879 sec cast, 1 min cooldown

Throw a whirling axe at the target location that inflicts 3000 damage to enemies within 8 yards every 1 sec. Lasts 15 sec.

Extreme Measures
Arms & Fury (Masochism)
Instant

Deal damage to yourself equal to 20% of your maximum health, and gain 30 Rage.

Protection (Gladiator Stance)
Instant, 1.5 sec cooldown
A dauntless combat stance.

Increases all damage dealt by 20%. Also causes Shield Slam to consume Shield Barrier as additional damage, and have an increased chance to critically strike equal to your critical block chance.

What's with Stance of the Gladiator? Protection viable for PvP? Or just giving Protection warriors a leveling/questing talent?

Overall clearly some classes seemed to get much cooler talents, although I wouldn't say we got the worst.

Level 100 talent cannot be leveling talent. I think some changes to venegance are on the way.

Yes they're trying to stop the crazy bursts/cc that came out with MoP (or Cata...)

Protection viable in PvP ? as long as its not like blood dks, ProtPVP was quite fun in S5/S6 tbh !

Wow, warrior talents are completely lackluster. Bad or OP it doesn't matter, they're just plain boring
Peace sells ...but who's buying?

  • Focusing Crystal
    • 40 yd range
    • Instant, 1 min cooldown
    • Conjures a focusing crystal at the target location, which is attackable by only the Mage. The crystal will absorb the power of all damage deal to it. After 10 sec, it will release bursts of energy, dealing damage equal to 130% of the damage it took, split between all enemies within 8 yards, over 6 sec.
Sheep, start to burst crystal, in 8 sec target dies in deep from lances and rediculous DoT.

Dps as prot with passive Avatar. But you lose defensive stance. Guess it will be effective in pvp with the dispel glyph. However it makes you bait to casters. You will have to rely on smart usage of shield barrier.
Oh well if pve gear becomes better then pvp gear in the new worldpvp area i will just use my protgear and play a damn 300 Spartan.

Ravager might be shitscary together with Bladestorm.
But i guess the most common is going to be the thunderclap one which basicly adds some sort of consecration effect to it. Which isnt bad when someone tries to train you or you want to force someone away from your position.

Think theyre trying to limit the new amount of OP abilities to balance what is already in-game.

Ferals for instance got their savage roar passive but got nothing else for lvl 100 talent.

is there something  I don't understand here? Haven't played for years, but why would you take 20% of your hp for 30 rage lmao

Because rage is much harder to come by, and you could use that as an execute to kill someone who would otherwise get away.

Level 100 Talents
Keep in mind these talents will likely change significantly before release and are not final.

game is 8-10 months away atleast .. they just whipped up things that sounded class related last minute

tl:dr calm down the talents wont look like this

I do not agree at all.

Warrior is like the only class that's being able to swap around between 5 viable choices.
Every other class has the same talents, no difference from player to player at all. (few exceptions).
With the old talent tree, there were plenty of choices,

It also makes leveling fucking aids and boring

It has been suggested by blue and mmo champion that they want to get WoD out by spring or sooner. No set date of course. They have confirmed no more mop patches though, cus doing so would delay WoD.
