Adding threat is a band-aid to the problem... which is why its dissapointing, would be nice to deal the same amount of dps as every other tanking classes, Warrior being the lowest dps tanking in raid is no joke, wiping on saurfang and festergut at 1% sucks, every dps counts.
I said it doesnt have high survivability. Stop putting words in my mouth. I did not say it was low, I did not say it was mediocre, pink, purple, or even pizza-colored. Get it? There are things that are not black and white. This is one such thing.
44 resi, 16% passive protection from magic, and high armor with average life, doesnt make you anywhere near what one implies with wording such as what GC used yesterday. The way I read it he implied we had things in common with actual tanks.
The survivability of prot comes from the ability to lock out, and/or get the f out of dodge if needed. It does not fare well in "taking a beating". If you doubt me then by all means get your head out your ass and prove it, or go mouth of on the hunter forum instead. I hear they are pretty popular trolltargets at the moment too.
Lets 1 thing straight, prot is faceroll because it is OP. The skill cap on a prot warrior is ridiculously high, probably as high or higher than any other spec in the game. Does that make it less OP or less faceroll? No because you can still do extremely well by playing like garbage.
So a spec that can get 3k+ with 44 resil doesn't have high survivability? lol ok. I don't care WHY they have high survivaiblity (obviously because shield block/stuns/silences/spell reflect/ie the ability to shutdown opponents) Most classes depend on these things for survivaiblity, shuting down enemy damage isn't exclusive to prots.
ex. mages can't "take a beating" as you so eloquently put it, but is their survivability in the "grey area", no.
Last post for me(directed at you) since you are too retarded to understand basic logic/reason/english. Keep practicing with that mancleave bro. :rolleyes:
