"The warrior class is now free to expand. Just for that reason alone, I'm interested in watching how War Banner unfolds. "Ah, good. The precedent it sets will surely allow enhancement shamans to get their tanking ability back. ;-)

I'd like to see our oral inspirational abilities enhanced upon. Heroic presence should be ours. Remember the warrior in 300 telling the story to the entire army of Greece before leading them into battle? Words move people, it is all about being a leader. We have left too much of our leadership in the face of war to our paladin brethren. Imagine you are barely holding off wave after wave of enemy attacks and the Ultramarines show up and back you up. Yeah, heck sounds like a heroic presence to me.

Paladins inspire, protect, heal and bring about righteous fury. Warriors defend, intimidate and destroy the enemy's defenses as they feed upon victory.

@ Sqtsquish:I couldn't agree with you more. My favorite D&D class (from 4th edition) is the Warlord, a martial fighter who serves as a "healer" of sorts by restoring his allies' will to fight. Warlords use tactics, oration and warrior codes and mythology to boost their allies, and they have abilities like auras that represent tactical advice and maneuvers that let them move allies around on the battlefield.Now, obviously, D&D is turn-based, grid-based and has vastly different class paradigms to deal with. I'm not suggesting that warriors become healers, or that they just get paladin auras with a different name. Still, if they're looking for good inspiration for ways to expand the warrior class beyond shouts, strikes and combat sprints, that would be a good place to start looking, in my opinion.
