I think the biggest thing that people just aren't getting with this expansion is:With the addition of a new class blizzard is taking steps in a new direction in class design and talent point arrangement. Why is everyone all stuck on bladestorm sucking in pvp? Have you thought about it's use in pve? Swinging an additional time every 1.5sec is hardly weak when you look at the fact that you're still doing your normal white attacks. Last time I checked bladestorm was broken and charging the warrior 125 rage instead of the intended 25, ontop of the fact that you're immune to CC and probably already have hamstring on the target, how is that not massive? As far as titan grip, with the new windfury totem and flurry up, your attack speed will be 15% faster than the normal swing speed and you're still attacking with 2 2handers. Did it ever occur to anyone that Heroic leap might be intended as a pvp talent and bladestorm might be intended as a pve talent?

I was under the impression that bladestorm was channeled, and white attacks would not occur. Under this assumption, it basically lets you whirlwind a couple of times in succession, while moving and for substantially less rage. Nice, sure, but warriors were never intended to be AoE damage machines. I can count on one hand the number of time I've accidentally pulled three or more enemies and wished I'd had something like this, and Retaliation/Cleave/Sweeping Strikes handled those instances admirably.

@Saelorn: lolwut?Fury is all about aoe melee damage. Sweeping Strikes, Whirlwind, Cleave. In Mount Hyjal on trash waves I beat out everyone for damage done.

It's not, you do white attack while it's going on.

@Kaphikur warlocks are bad. If you'd take half a second to look at other classes than warrior and their trees, you'd see something akin to what they've done with death knight trees. Blizzard has stated directly to the death knight class that they want ALL trees to be able to do the class's roles equally well, depending on specific talent choices ofcourse. Taking that idea and applying it to the other classes and their talent trees, you can clearly see that the developers want to take the other classes in that direction as well. For once I'd like to see someone of the warrior class wrap their massively thick skull around the idea that possibly, bladestorm is not mainly intended for pvp application and titan grip is not mainly intended for pve application.

Phohammar: wrong. white attacks do not happen during a bladestorm.
