I played a warrior for the first time recently, and I've been loving every second of it. My toon is Wraegixx - Proudmoore. First of all, the nerf to our DPS is absolutely ridiculous and not justified at all. I play arms, and I have researched my class/spec vigorously. I know what talents to spec into, I know what glyphs benefit me and my rotation the best, and i know the rotation that maximizes my DPS and utilizes all of my Rage effectively.I sit, generally, on the top of the DPS meter in most cases. I don't have ANY BoA gear, all of my gear i either made myself or got through dungeons/quests.I beat out other classes (at my current level, and previous to) in DPS because of my skill as a player. I have seen other Arms warriors in the group with me sit right at the bottom, some of them with BoA gear on.As for the rage 'issue'... I generate a good amount of rage with my rotation. I'm NEVER in excess of rage, i never have rage I can just burn; I don't exactly have to 'manage' it exactly... but with the rotation I use, I'm basically always sitting at low rage (which is fine because it doesn't affect my performance or DPS... it's just how the class works and how I play the class specifically).My OS is Protection, So i've been Arms/Prot from a very low level and I know what it's like to generate rage for both specs.Once again, I don't have an issue with generating rage as a tank. Unless some Noob DPS decides to pull for me, and messes me up... but in most cases I can still pull the mob of them, pull the mob together, and tank the crap outta them.Personally I think it's all about the skill of the player. Knowing what abilities to use, when, and knowing what gear to have/talents to spec into and which glyphs to use.Don't hate on our rage, cause I believe it's just as hard to 'manage' as any other class resource in the game. And I strongly believe that Blizz is nerfing us unfairly... IMO.
