Not gonna lie, I'm scared shitless about not having a real personal cd (as it stands, only having enraged regen). As it is, I'm constantly arguing with with my raid lead about if I should burn my last stand when I need it, or if I should rely on my healers to keep me up so I can use RC 45 seconds later.Honestly, Blizz needs to leave our CDs alone.

I main a prot pally, and I understand exactly what you mean. I feel much less squishy on my Paladin than I do on my Warrior, simply because I have so much more utility to work with. The Warrior has his advantages; more maneuvrability, for one, but I just feel like *I* have more control over my own fate.That, and having Divine Guardian and my other CDs on seperate cooldowns makes it much easier to blow a cooldown if need be.

Why do these share cd's... honestly?

@paulSo you don't stack them and gain crazy amounts of health and pop enraged Regen/Victory Rush to keep yourself up when your healers are dead on a 1% wipe. Also for PvP.I've actually saved the raid once or twice with a well timed Rallying Cry, and saved the tanks at least a dozen more. I kind of like having that kind of utility/power as a DPS Warrior, please don't take that away from me, other than my DPS that's all I have :p

@Natsumi no one is saying take away RC, just don't make us (the tanks) choose between us and the raid. My example is a perfect example of why this is a bad thing: my raid leader is telling me don't use last stand b/c he wants RC later on. Doesn't seem like an issue, but then I get low and need a cd, I then have to choose between me or the raid. Right now, the situation is in-elegant. It works, but not well. Tying shield wall into a raid cd should be a talent or a glyph, not a set bonus. That way, it's a choice and us not being forced.

@VSUGet yourself a DPS Warrior for the raid, they bring all kinds of useful stuff to it. I bring 4% physical, 30% bleed, Str/Agi, Rallying Cry, a reliable interrupt, and if asked nicely Shattering Throw (really only useful if there are several Physical DPS dealers) in addition to my solid raid performance. Alternatively I can bring Str/Agi or Health, 5% crit, Rallying Cry, and a reliable interrupt in addition to my solid raid performance (though I'd rather stay Arms, it is the superior spec after all ;) ). In addition to all my super fun utility and damage you get to use your Last Stand when you need it, thus making your raid leader and yourself happy.

Unfortunately, I am the warrior in the raid, and we are melee heavy as is. And I concur onthe strs of the dps warriors, but unfortunately, it doesn't change the fact that the 4 set is ill-conceived, and needs to be changed. Don't make the tanks into selfish asshats b/c they want to keep thier CDs for themselves and not be pigeonholed into saving the cd for the raid. Make it a glyph or change a talent for each tank. Don't give it as a set bonus: it's just wrong.

lol, tell your melee to reroll as a REAL melee class.

My raid lead is very okay with sacking RC for Last Stand because, as he puts it, "If we need Rallying Cry we're doing something horribly wrong." - to which he has a point. Rallying Cry is something a warrior tank shouldn't worry about, but a warrior DPS should (Remember it's talentless ability... unlike Last Stand). Now a Warrior DPS can time a Rallying Cry with a Prot Warriors Last Stand and still get the effect, but like having Kings and Blessing of might at the same time you need two players in the class. Regardless if you're tanking you don't have Rallying Cry - it doesn't exist, Last Stand and Enraged Regen is too potent together to not use.
