Long time reader, first time writer.....I am really getting sick of wow nerfing dps warriors by definition warriors should be damage dealers. Soon as I lvl to 85 my warrior is purely going to be a miner/skinner cuz wow has made it clear warriors is only a taking class since 4.1 and we'll never be a dps class.

Dragonjc, DPS warriors will always face two hurdles. The first is that we are a hybred class to Blizz. I take issue with the exact meaning of this. If you mean that a class has the potential to spec into two out of the three main jobs then yes it is hybred. My thinking is that a class is hybred when it can DO multiple jobs with one spec. Being able to do good dps damage and tank for example went away with the 40 man raids. Not to mention dual spec put the final nail in the coffin. Why bring an arms/prot specced warrior when you bring an actual tank or damage dealer in plate. Anytime that the so-called "pure" classes of warlock, mage and rogue have been challanged Blizzard has quickly acted to bring hybreds down below them in pure dps. Is it fair? no, but it keeps people speccing into them. Its not the classes fault that they are only good for Pew pew and spamming recount. Finally, unless Blizzard drops arena and battlegrounds and goes just with world PvP, you will see further nerfs as warriors figure out ways to kill "pure" classes faster. For evidence, look at how fast they nerfed prot warriors halfway through Wraith. Mages stood about as much chance against a geared tank as a kitten standing in front of a truck. The developers went out of their way to point this out. Never mind a good mage will not let a warrior ever get close enough to do damage, we had to take care of the Ebay mages. Getting hit hard and fast with the nerf bat has been our lot since vanilla. We will never see large changes to our class for buffs, because being the tricky and intelligent fellows we will wring an obscene about of dps out of even the smallest buff. Too big a buff and mages and warlocks will fall over dead in their PvP starting areas before the contest even begins.
