#3841001 Why Warriors will suck in s13 5.2 ptr footage

Posted Nightmonkey on 26 January 2013 - 11:29 PM

My Warrior was my main for a long time, but I came to hate it in MoP because it just doesn't feel like playing a Warrior anymore.  Everything is usable in one stance and they've given us a bunch of old Prot abilities to play with as Arms instead of giving us new abilities as talents.

Warrior defensive abilities are simply too good right now in comparison to some other classes.  I feel like the nerf to Defensive stance is warranted.  I do not think the Second Wind nerf is a good design.  Somehow we've managed to get so far away from the old Warrior design that Second Wind now does almost the exact opposite of what it used to do.  Why don't they just revert it to what it used to be?  Healing and rage when you get stunned, rage when you get rooted.  

The new changes promote Warriors being trained 100%.  At least in days of old when you got trained as a Warrior that also meant you got unlimited rage to throw right back at them, now you just have to bend over and take it.

All that said, I agree with every Warrior nerf except the rage cost on Overpower.  They should put the rage cost somewhere else (Csmash maybe?) because in 5.2 you will just be a damage sponge in Defensive stance if the rage cost on Overpower goes through.

I've played both Enhancement and Ret this season, and a Warrior in Battle stance is no different from those specs.  I'm not saying that makes sitting in Battle stance okay because those other specs have to deal with it, quite the opposite.  Those specs are shining examples of poorly designed (or non existent) defensive abilities, and they get trained 100% in arena no matter what comp they face.
