SPELLPLATE!/shakes fistHonestly, I'd like them to remove the warrior ranged slot and let us equip a third weapon as a stat stick.

Why? Weapons have better stats than the ranged slot so the class would have to be rebalanced around having this bonus. For what purpose? You can't see the extra weapon on your character model.

"You can't see the extra weapon on your character model"But what if you COULD? How awesome would that be?They wouldn't have to re-balance the class. Just have the stat-stick weapon only give something like 50-75% of its stats, depending on if it's a one- or two-hander.

I guess I dont' understand where you would see the 3rd weapon; on your toons back? This may be nitpicky semantics but "Just have the stat-stick weapon only give something like 50-75% of its stats, depending on if it's a one- or two-hander." is rebalancing the class. How do they work that in? Is it inherent to the class? Don't forget prot warriors and shields. It's a lot of work for very little benefit, sorry to rain on your parade, I'm really a nice person once you get to know me :P

Um... how does a random ranged weapon with stats differ from a melee weapon with stats as a stats stick?Other than be balanced differently. Back in BC there was a crossbow(?) that was a 'tanking weapon'. It had Defense on it. A stat stick is just a stat stick regardless of model. What you WANT is for the Ranged Weapon to be on par, stats wise, with melee weapons. This isn't going to happen, as it would effect game balance.

Yeah, what good warrior wouldn't have a holdout shortsword or dagger or something?

-Candina@WHNo, actually, the purpose wouldn't be to boost powe,r but to make itemization for warriors eaier. Rihgt now, for a warrior tanks ranged slot, the Devs have to design and itemis a tank gun. Same wiht a Str/Stam gun. Id rather just be able to slap a weapon in that slot and call it good.

surely any self-respecting warrior would hold the third weapon between his/her teeth?

Take out the bow/x-bow/gun and give warriors a new type of item for that slot... CODPIECES.Studded Codpiece of Edward the Odd1276 armor+161 StaminaDurability 90 / 90Requires Level 85Item Level 359Equip: Increases your parry rating by 72Equip: Increases your mastery rating by 72

@ Alex:As much as I love your idea, the thought of parrying with a codpiece frightens me.

@MusedBut mastery of the codpiece, man!
4-05-2011 @ 8:48PM
Not to mention the stamina... Hello ladies ;)

I'm afraid to ask: how does one parry with a codpiece? /gaspI guess that could be a tauren racial.

just let them use relics. they share the same relics as pali's and DKs. problem solved.

Matthew, tell me you have seen trailers for "Your Highness".Now think back to when they were in the arena.A man was killing people with his sex. A "Martial Sexist" if you will. That, is how one would parry a weapon, especially since your groin is protected by armor. That, or just spray some Old Spice down there..."Your crotch is now diamonds".
