(apprently I can't use the 'greater than' sign in a comment... opps. Here is the full post)As a Fury spec'd warrior, I feel like I've already had to defend my spec. People just assume that because I'm a warrior that I should be tanking... that my DPS won't be as high as a rogue or a hunter, and that makes it harder for me to get invites to groups.Currently I'm topping most DPS meters with about 3K DPS with 10 man buffs and 3.5K DPS with 25 man buffs. I can hold my own against Rogues, Hunters, Mages and whatever other DPS class thinks they're so great. However, I'm afraid that after 3.1, with it's looming TG nerf and short term AP v. Strength nerf, that I'm no longer going to be able to hold my own against these classes... which I'm worried will limit the amount of groups I'll be able to get for Ulduar.I 100% agree that if this change to AP v. Strength would have been rolled out back in November then I would already have the gear to work with it. Throwing this change out mid-expansion is a mistake, as least in my eyes, and is significantly going to reduce the viability of Fury Warriors in PvE.Since WotLK I feel like I've been kicked around by Blizzard. First they introduce the DK, which might as well be called Warrior 2.0, and then the continual nerfs came. The only glimmer of hope I've seen so far in this expansion was when they removed the negative cost of TG in the last patch... but now they're putting one back on.Warriors, as of now, are being pushed into a second class tank/second class DPS role, and it's making it harder and harder for Warriors to be viable end game PvEers. Why get a Fury Warrior when you could have almost any other DPS class giving the same DPS output? What sets the Fury Warrior apart? Why have a Prot Warrior when you could have Pally or DK who can heal themselves, or a Druid with 45K health?Blizzard needs to take a long look at the PvE game of warriors and decide where we fit in, and which roles we should excel at, because as of right now, the warrior class as a whole isn't standing out in a way that would make a raid leader say "we need a warrior".
