I feel like the real issue here is people who played MoP warrior are used to being so overly-tuned, for a melee, that now they are brought in line they are comparing their class to obvious OP classes (ret, dk, feral) which have to be toned down. I am also talking about at 100 on beta. For the entirety of MoP, warrior was the only plug-and-play melee. Meaning, as a melee you could run with lots and lots of setups whereas other melee had to run specific comps to really run top-tier and some not at all.

This is the new reality for warriors. I've played over 1000 arena's on beta and they do just fine at 100. Are they the absurd wrecking-crew of a class they were for amost of MoP? No, but if you care about diversity and true competition that should be good news to you. You can separate yourself from everyone else much easier if you are in fact good now as a warrior. In MoP, there were really only 2 truly skilled warriors. Cara and Trillbartom. :0

As someone who cares about the overall health of PvP, the state warriors are in, at 100, is good news for us all. As I said, there are obvious offenders who will have to be toned down (ret, feral, dk) if Blizzard has any plans of balance this upcoming season, but IMHO, as far as balance goes, PvP feels good at 100. Slower, but good.

Addendum: I realize there wasn't an over abundance of skilled players on beta but one can still get a feel for the ebb and flow of arena. I will also concede that MoP was dominated by casters mostly but as far as melee went, warrior was really the best class for most of MoP (rogues had their place but in specific comps).

cool story fanboy -.-

This isn't true at all. Warrior damage is fine, and it will be better at lvl 100. Staying on target without withering away in roots is a problem, but can be worked around with the correct comp. The issue with warriors is that the ability prune ruined their utility. They lost a major defensive, and are all-around less mobile. Right now, it feels like death knights can do everything a warrior can do, but better. Blizzard has some vision of what a warrior should be, and it's getting in the way of common sense.

My biggest issues deal with the pruning, and which spells they decided to prune. Banner intervene allowed a good warrior to break a root without a teammate nearby. Shat. throw gave a good warrior the ability to pre-load a shatter on a mage. Without those abilities, warriors feel like damage turrets. Those two changes, along with the gimped distance on H-leap, removes the ability to create strategic opportunities. Now, your kill-opp's arise purely out of damage, which is boring.

You can still shatter throw with the glyph , but yeah i've gotten used to intervening out of roots and banners.

ps. you can remove the heroic leap glyph if you want the old range back.
