I said so mastery is gonna be the thing. However i still gem str over mastery. As it scales all your abilities and is indirectly tied with your mastery scaling. And it gives Parry.
Str mastery/ Yellow
Str crit/ Blue (might change these.)
The whining about the current state of the game is unreal. Are people not capable of understanding that this happens EVERY PREPATCH (hello rets in wrath prepatch). Stop whining, go play cs:go for a few weeks or something and come back on release. Nothing that happens now is relevant, and it's baffling that so many people don't seem to realize that.
Is hybrid healing broken? Yes. Has it been like this every prepatch? Yes. Was it sorted at new maxlvl? Yes. Does Disc shields absorbs a lot now? Yes. Does that mean anything? No.
I don't care for the rotation fun factor of Arms. More about how effective the spec is overall. Compared to fury and prot i do not see any benefit other then:
+A more relyable MS.
+A passive cleave that has a low rage cost and can practically be up all the time.
-Less self healing.
-Less overall survival due to needing a lot of rage in defensive stance.
However. If arms makes up for it's lack of mobility for having more damage it would be fine. But i hardly think that is the case. It also goes directly against the spec tooltip. Reminding me of a picture i made a long wile back.
actually they are not prot, they are gladiator stance, and glad stance has no reduced damage and shield barrier is 8k absorb, so a furry warrior actually survives better than a glad stance. there is no one going defensive stance because the damage is 0.
I was talking about glad stance, that's all I've been talking about for the last 20 pages.
Glad stance has more armor, 30% parry/block, demo shout, and the best part is last stand doesn't lose the health when it ends unlike rallying cry, which scales insanely well with commanding shout and enraged regen.
Shield barrier is an awful ability, especially as arms. The best counter to pressure is pressure, not aimlessly auto attacking because you're spending all your rage on a shitty absorb.
To all my warrior friends who are basing their fury findings of PTR, don't. You're going to be woefully disappointed at 100. Fury is essentially a wet noodle that seems to never die due to very strong self healing, while doing nothing else.
Arms does solid damage, but it's incredibly inconsistent. The second your target starts kiting you, and they will, you're completely fucked. With the current way rage works, you'll be able to charge and get two attacks off that consist of 70% of your overall damage. If one of these abilities dodges or miss, every single ounce of pressure you thought you might get for finally catching the target is gone.
With the overly nerfed warrior mobility, this will happen a lot. Even as prot with banner and double charge, I become furious at attempts to chase posthaste hunters, freedom'd pallys, or god forbid the plethora of druids.
Arms has even less tools to close that gap, and they just don't work. It could do alright if they had a more consistent rotation, such as having overpower to fill the gaps, but they don't. It's CS, MS, whirlwind spam. That's it. If CS or MS are unable to connect in any form, you are a walking toy until they're back off CD. God forbid that you use both abilities and their healer is CC'd a foot away and you're unable to use whirlwind. Slam is not a viable option either, mainly due to inconsistent rage generation. You'll either be completely starved, or get two auto crits in a row and can't seem to spam whirlwind fast enough to make use of it. It isn't fun to play and most importantly the effectiveness of the spec itself even when played to complete mastery is questionable.
I understand that a lot of you guys want the spec to work, most likely as some form of debt you feel to the spec for it serving so well in the past, but just don't. You're only going to disappoint yourselves infinitely more, and Blizzard will not be correcting their mistake until 6.1 at the earliest.
Guy had ok guides ( but that's as far as his "contribution" goes ), and he had okay posts - then he found a decent warlock+druid to play LSD with, got some rating and let his ego and bias go to town - basically became a complete unbearable twat, and I'm not sad at all that he got banned.
why not? its not hard yet shit warriors are gonna have troubles with it which then make people think warrior is actually a hard class (it isnt)
Stance dancing in itself isnt bad, but every other class has had their stance requirements removed or their class usability and quality of life dramaticly increased. Things like druid abilities automaticly putting them into form, shadowform/moonkin able to cast a much bigger variety of spells, or even seemingly small changes like permanant water ele are huge
They cannot bring it back without reverting the last two expansions worth of QoL changes with every other class. "Because it takes skill" isn't a valid arguement when you take this into concideration.
You don't go to jail for something like that, your local authority would not have time to look into small ddoss cases over a game. The best thing you can do is be protected, if you're reluctant to change your skype that's your own fault.
1. Plays with Roguetrainer - Check
2. DDOS himself - Check
3. Is a unknwon rival exploiting his way to Gladiator - check
4. Keeps claiming it's peoples own fault for being DDOS'ed - check
No because it's almost completely skillless, which helps to add to part of the reason warriors have such a high representation. They're effective and literally anybody can play one given a day or two to a high level.
this is not true and you know it, give a new guy WoW or just look at 1k mmr games, people are actually not good at this game.
warrior might be easy but the statement that everyone can pick up a class and be good with it is not true.
PS: ofc if an already good player picks up warrior he will have an easy time
I can't believe people are crying about the catch-up cap. Wow you have 20k to cap? Be glad they even allow catching up now. Does everyone forget a mere season or two ago when there wasn't any catching up? Or how about all the BS pve gear? Yep that's gone too.
I agree deserter sucks for I indeed tanked my 2s rating too. But it had to be implemented. 2s is the gateway to arena and 1100's should never be facing gladiators. We want more participation in arena and by having them hazed by glads in the 1100 bracket is counterproductive. It turns many away.
And flavour. Stop. You're too white for that sh*t. And frankly no one respects it. You sound like a wanna-be vanilla ice ice tea ice cube gangsta fruitcake. Right when Regentlord left the flame is carried by someone else, you...seriously why does someone always fill in the others place since I can remember?
Finally @ Lolflay...what's happened? Since TBC you were my priest hero always adding great input to the game. I loved reading your insightful posts and you definitely made me want to be like you on my priest. But ever since you've left the game all your posts seem to be trolling or complaints. Like an old renowned star that's become senile about the sport they've played. It's depressing.
