"Protection warriors have too much utility and damage for PvP. (We don't want to hurt their tanking in PvE of course.)"To fix this though... hurting them in PvE is exactly what they'll do. They always end up down this road. "X is too much or too little in PvP, lets tweak some random numbers. Only that tweak ends up doing something way overboard... making a class suddenly fall notably behind or too far ahead in PvE...I wish they would just add an offensive version of resilience to PvP. Some number that only applies in PvP - and boosts damage up, or down when fighting another player (and then also remove all remaining PvE effects of resilience, so it could be used the same way for mitigation without any concern for PvE effects).

Honestly, if you just put the collection of stuns available to a prot warrior on the same diminishing returns for PvP only, that would make a huge difference.

I don't do much PVP on my warrior but do like going into Wintergrasp occasionally for some PVProt. On my server its the opposite faction to me that gets the tenacity buff so its great fun to keep an enemy locked down for sooo long while my teammates zerg them down. Can understand why its annoying ;)Most of these abilities that cause the annoyance (like Shockwave and Shield Slam) were things partly designed to make warrior tanks more viable and fun in solo play outside of dungeons or raids. I only switched to prot from arms after they did this. Pity the poor souls who ever tried to level a warrior in protection spec prior to this. But with dual specs there doesn't seem so much point in making a protection warrior do anything else apart from tank.I kind of see the point (though i'd miss the fun!) in removing this utility in pvp as i'm sure it can't be what was intended, but fear that it will negatively impact on our tanking. Just hope they can balance it correctly. I'd swap this pvp utility for increased AOE threat and shorter cooldowns on defensive mitigations. They're in a tight spot though, they gave warriors these abilities as a result of warrior QQ, now they may have to take them away again after everyone else QQs.

I wish they would give us separate PvP specs and be done with it. I PvP very little, and hate hate hate when they nerf something because it's OP in the Arenas or some nonsense like that. If I wanted to play "Counterstrike: World of Warcraft" I'd play Warhammer or some other game designed around PvP in the first place.
