Ah, the all-knowing Matthew Rossi. He kept saying that he expected a warrior nerf and here it is. It's a fairly sized hit but thankfully not earth-shattering. I wonder how much this will affect our stat weights with hit....

Calling Rossi a prophet for foreseeing a warrior nerf in a patch is a bit much I think. Take a look back at it and there have been pretty significant nerfs to warriors in every major and most minor patches going a ways back, be it nerfing mastery values, changing charge and intercept mechanics, that goofy change to juggernaut in 4.0.6, figuring out what the heck they wanted to do to Titan's Grip way back in the day, making Bladestorm disarmable, etc. That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but I'm sure there's more.It's not stretching too much to say that many of the buffs we've received have been because of how over the top the nerfs that came before them were. How much the reverse is true I think is an interesting concept. It's definitely amusing that this 5-8% nerf comes on the heels of the 40% buff to white damage in fury and the unnerfing of Colossus Smash for arms in PvE.

Dude, I was joking. You put way too much thought into proving a joke wrong. /clap
