The problem here is that Christian is not understand WHY prot warriors do more DPS in PvP, or is ignoring it. It's Armor Pen. Prot warriors in PvP stack armor pen. The way to reduce their DPS in PvP (not PvE, where they don't wear the stuff) is to make Shield Slam ignore armor.Buh, you say? Make the big damage swing ignore armor and that'll help? Yes, because it can then be tuned to hit for less than it does now and it won't gimp tanking warrior threat or damage, but it will greatly reduced PvP Prot DPS because their big shield slam crits will no longer be for as much because they won't be penetrating armor. You can stack all the ArP you like, Shield Slam won't go up if it already ignores armor. So lower Shield Slam's damage now, make it ignore armor, you've removed damage from prot PvP without touching prot PvE.
