I'd be lying if I didn't say I was feeling the wrath of 4.0.1. As a main spec fury warrior I went from top of the heap to literally being out dps'd by our paladin tank on H.Marrowgar. The first two nights after the patch were rough and painful and not fun at all.I was relieved to hear that GC knew of failing that was warrior dps and said that they would address it. The next day (Thursday) I logged in and ran a couple randoms only to be completely surprised at how much my dps had jumped. Sure, I had to reforge most of my crit into hit rating, but I found that once I was able to get enough rage (which usually took a few seconds into the fight) I was able to spam HS on CD and keep Raging Blow and BT on cooldown. When I was doing this I was able to pull around 7k dps average in places like Hall of Reflection, where the fights are longer and health pools of bosses are larger. Other heroics I 'm still having a problem because by the time I get enough rage to start actually using abilities the mobs are dead. RIP Whirlwind.I do want to say though that I was impressed at just how much of a dps increase I saw from Wednesday night to Thursday night. Wednesday my HS's were critting for a max of 9K and then yesterday they were critting for 26k. I'm certainly not saying we're back on top, but it's better than it was on Wednesday.
