And this is why I love Rossi.He pretty much sums up everything I love about the warrior with how he talks about them and genuinely has good, albeit radical, ideas for making the warrior more dynamic. I love these ideas and i would crit my pants to see some changes of this kind of caliber make it into Cata.I totally agree that the warrior mechanics are a bit antiquated at this point and the time for drastic changes is now. The dated game that we play, as much as we love it, will cease to be and now is as good a time as ever to shake things up and widen that divide between specs.One thing that i thought of when reading this is what if arms was more like the warlord class from lineage II? They have an inherent chance to hit multiple targets with a polearm simply by attacking. As much as I hate the idea of poaching ideas from a terrible NCsoft game, the idea is intriquing. The precision and almost dance-like swaths an arms warrior could create with his/her weapon swings is just something that plays out in my head.Fury is doing pretty good, but I think it could be a little more focused on the 'screaming barbarian' bit. Don't get me wrong, its nice to do 19k dps on trash packs in ICC, but only having three attacks to use (and one of those attacks is mashing the everliving crap out of heroic strike/cleve), when the overall toolkit of a warrior is so vast, is a little disappointing. Granted the t10 4p set bonus makes your rotation a little more dynamic and fun, I personally would like to see that expanded upon. I was really sad when the shouts got overridden by other buffs so that was one less thing I could do.Bah. I've ranted enough. Look what you make me do Rossi!
