My problem's not that I feel nerfed. That part's kind of annoying, but I can tolerate it. What's the problem though is how much they changed fury and how really.... it's kind of boring now, both in feel and in style. For instance, Whirlwind used to have two interesting factors associated with it, the AOE and tied to that, the effort you had to use not to break CC. While that isn't something that wrath warriors will know, I actually found that to be really fun in BC, and I know I'm going to miss it. Add in how it worked with the kind of berserker style that fury warriors embody and it becoming fairly worthless is sad. There's also Raging blow, which is honestly my biggest problem despite Rossi considering it a fine ability. While from a damage standpoint it's quite nice,the ability is both boring and annoying. Since it requires a rage effect to be in place, it would appear that it creates a juggling game with your enrages. The problem is, that while it does this, it feels like what you're really doing is casting a paladin's seals before being able to use judgement, but on a tiny duration and a CD. Except paladins have more that they can use in their rotation now, so this instead feels like a required ability that you don't have access to most of the time, and your access is either completely random (enrage), or on a fair CD deathwish and to a lesser extent, berserker rage. And for that last ability, you can't pop it whenever on certain types of enemies. Any time you're facing a fearing boss or mob, or a warlock or expect there's a rogue near you need to hold off on BR. Anytime we can't trigger an enrage ourselves this makes our rotation essentially bloodthirst(hope for slam), heroic strike, repeat. I guess if you've got extra rage you may be able to still toss a WW in there, but..... While I admit the earlier rotation (bloodthirst -whirwind-spam heroic strike and hope for a slam each bloodthirst) wasn't much better, but it was better, and didn't make you have to hope for either luck or a cd to come off cooldown to get back to it's level. Combine all this with just flat out not getting the rage we need to be able to do even our shitty rotation sometimes and yeah, we need an overhaul already.
