Right Jslim, now tell me how is a Disc Priest supposed to escape a Warrior? Oh, that's right, unless they have a partner to peel for them, they can't.I would love to be able to avoid going toe to toe with a Warrior as Disc. One charge ruins that. We aren't Mages with Frost Novas and Blinks. In an Arena as Disc, you spend all your time trying to either heal through MS or trying to run around pillars to avoid charges and such. You don't get to "just stand at range".Even Warlocks have difficulty escaping Warriors (I know, I play a Warrior as well), because they rely on Fear, and Bladestorm and zerker Rage prevent them from peeling the Warrior off them.What I'm saying is, in a world without armor penetration, Warriors will be amazing against cloth classes and progressively worse against higher armor targets. So if you tune Warriors to be able to kill Paladin healers, they will be overpowered against Priests and Warlocks, especially since Warriors also negate the escape mechanisms of those classes.
