I was optimistic about our class despite the Rage Normalization they announced, but every patch just disheartens me more and more. I may be switching mains come Cataclysm if the class continues to spiral downwards like it is.As a side note, have they fixed Colossus Smash yet? Ever since they got it "working" it's DOUBLED the target's Armor instead of ignoring it.

For clarification:Fury is totally borked right now with Raging blow being too RNG and stat inflation, making it terrible until you get gear at level 85 (I think it's 125 Hit rating for 1% at 85). On top of that I hate Fury's playstyle, it's not for me. I don't like Dual Wielding nor the penalties that go with it. I was forced into this tree so I could Raid ICC and I'm NEVER going Fury again, I'll go play a Paladin first.I have absolutely no interest in tanking.... ever. I hate it, I always have. Don't get me wrong, I support my tanking brethren in the trenches, but I'm just not going to join you there because it's the only viable tree to play. Go go Gadget 30k Shield Slams!Arms is completely useless until they fix Colossus Smash, give Arms an interrupt that doesn't require a shield or stance dancing, and provide the Warriors with our promised CC ability. Our utility was always Healing Debuff and extra bleed/physical damage. Without these changes Arms is just a pure melee DPS class that is overshadowed by the other melee DPS with actual utility.

Why did you ever choose to play a warrior in the first place? Seems like you hate everything about it.

Here's what I read:"QQ my main isn't overpowered in a very buggy beta, despite the fact that all of the data coming out is showing that warriors will be very competitive from the get-go.Also I hate my life for playing a game that forced me to play in a way that I absolutely hate. Because, you know, it was mandatory for me to be forced into playing a crappy spec of a crappy class that I hate to play."Here's what I say:My baby 80 warrior is and always will be fury, and fury only, everything else be damned, because an orc wielding 2 humongous 2hand axes just feels more damn sexy than lady gaga at a fox van allen party. Oh yeah and while the beta changes seem buggy as hell, they also seem like they will work pretty well once it all gets ironed out.

@SaricI started a warrior on my server because my guild needed tanks if it was ever going to raid MC (my server was brand new at the time, so when I rolled my warrior the highest level character on the server was 27) . I got up to 34 before the guild fell apart when the GM left to go join the other people that were level 60 on the server. At that point I had fallen in love with the Arms tree. I was Arms through Vanilla, BC, and Wrath, right up until my guild (and every other guild on the server) let me know in no uncertain terms that I would be required to spec Fury (which I hate) or Prot (which I hate and am only mediocre at anyway). I chose to raid as Fury, the lesser of 2 evils (all my alts were too undergeared for even ICC 10 without grinding for at least a week to catch up). I'm tired of not playing a spec that I like, a spec that requires me to actually pay attention. @PyroActually, I don't have access to the beta, I do however have access to the Beta FORUMS, which I keep up on, and most of the Warriors there are unhappy with the MECHANICS of the class and the fact that we desperately need a numbers pass or something as most DPS warriors can barely take on a single mob and survive, while Prot is 2 shotting things with Shield Slam. They say don't make comparisons to the other classes yet, but doing 3-6k damage per yellow attack while every other class is hitting for 10-15k makes your outlook a little bleak. If your class was broken to the point of almost unplayability you'd be ready to switch classes too.@AedilhildYeah, that came up on the beta forums about an hour after I made the post here. Thanks though.
