Honestly -- with the nerfs -- I'm tempted to leave. Why kill warriors completely? Oh yes, because Blizzard has a lead designer "Fail"Crawler that cares nothing for warriors. Thanks Douche-bag.

Because they aren't finished balancing yet. God, what's with all the whiners? Oh right, WoW community.

Since all melee DPS are in the same boat, we can conclude, of course, that Ghostcrawler also hates paladins, rogues, druids, and shamans.But we all know Ghostcrawler has a secret vendetta against warriors, because one killed his parents 12 years... wait, no he doesn't, because warriors are a line of code.Also, he has a level 80 warrior himself o.Okthxbai

It's easy to say 'what's with all the whiners' when you didn't wake up one day to find your DPS at one third of what it was before (yes, my main is a fury warrior, FML). I usually advocate Blizzard quite a lot, I understand the impossibility of balancing 30 different specs both in PvP and PvE, especially when everyone is rabidly screaming for their own to be buffed, but this time I find it a bit difficult to do so. I don't know if my post constitutes as 'whining' or not but I do think, maybe somewhat subjectively I admit, that Blizzard didn't do enough before releasing it to live and pretty much dropped the ball on 4.0.1.Thinking about the process they go through when designing, implementing and balancing such a patch I truthfully can't understand how something like that just goes under the radar. I mean, WoW is such a mathematical game, people use spreadsheets, addons, read up on forums and blogs about the right specs, glyphs and rotations to squeeze every last percent of DPS. People consider a 5% change in DPS as HUGE. And yet, through all the planning, writing and testing of the patch no one stood up and shouted 'Hey, I'm a melee character and my DPS is pretty much non existent compared to casters, what is going on?'.For the first time since I've started playing I considered switching mains, but I can't bring myself to do that because all the time and effort invested in my main achievement, pet, mount and profession wise. I've grown very attached to my main and I'll stick by him through thick and thin, but still it definitely feels bad when the nerfbat strikes you so hard that you wake up in the hospital and can't even remember who you are or how you got there. :)

Zvermm,After a couple days of learning the new setup, making some gear changes, and the adjustment Blizz made, our main fury warrior is back doing more DPS than before the patch. I think it is just a matter of spending some time figuring out the new system and what stats are important now.
@zvermmI understand your pain. I've got a Warrior who was hit, and I've got a Hunter that I'm not sure I like anymore. However, at least in the case of the Warrior, I can say that things will be different come Cataclysm. My friend who has played since vanilla told me this when I made my Warrior: "You can't go wrong with Warriors and Warlocks. They're always OP." I thus conclude that the nerf was not meant to be this bad, and is definitely balanced for 85. Come 85, if we're still too weak, you can expect buffs.
