We're sorry if you ever liked playing a warrior but we at Blizzard have decided to phase them out....please pick a new class.....come on I use to like playing dps on my warrior but not so much anymore with the continual nerfs. Its just sad they balance the game around pvp when a smaller set of people play that compared to pve. Ohwell atleast I still have my tank spec....for now

Hey, Fury got a buff. What's with the Arms-tunnel-vision?

Warriors in my guild were having no trouble blowing the doors off everyone else's DPS, to the point where they're the one thing that worries me for threat, continually, during raid encounters.So yeah, given that the warrior is 2-3k DPS ahead of similarly geared -everyone else-, I'd say that nerf might be a wee bit warranted.

I would love to talk to your warriors then as all the ones I have run with are getting blown out of the water for dos by death knights and hunters in similar gear. I would love to know what they are doing different. To me its sad mainly that they balance around pvp.

Aedi, the problem with warriors is that the intended rotation was not the max dps rotation. Blizz wants you to use free slam!'s as fury, but it would be a dps loss to do that instead of using heroic strike. The priority rotation should look something like:Colossal Smash - Bloodthirst - Execute (under 20% health) - Free Slam! - Heroic Strike or cleave when over 50 rageInstead it's this:Over 20%: CS-HS-BT, and only use Slam! if you are at 0 rage.Under 20%: Execute. And that's it, just spam execute.Most likely the warriors in your guild are doing it "right," by using free slam whenever it pops. As of 4.03, they should never use slam if they can help it.I never go arms, but HS is also too much dps for arms too.Fury got a mastery buff to compensate for the loss of DPS for HS/Cleave. Blizz won't leave warriors in the dust, so don't get your panties in a bunch. If their dps tests low on the PTR, they will buff mastery, or, more likely in my opinion, they will buff slam (which they really should, slam still really sucks compared to where it should be).

Oh also, your warriors should spamming execute under 20%. Seriously. The only thing they should ever cast is execute. Maybe weave a colossus smash. But never BT, never HS, never Slam, never never never, only Execute and CS under 20%.
