I'm actually super happy about War Banner. One of the things I said in my post on the forums (back when Blizzard was having that big class feedback push) was that, as a DPS warrior, I love Rallying Cry.When I'm on my Retribution Paladin, my rotation is worse and my fight mechanics are super wonky and RNG-based, but it's so great to be able to drop a Selfless Healer empowered Word of Glory, or toss up my Lay on Hands, or use Hand of Protection. Applying those tools at the right moment can really turn a battle around, and getting to heroically save a wipe is an incredible feeling. It looks like War Banner will give me more opportunities to have those heroic moments while playing my Warrior, and I like that, no matter how they implement the functionality.

There's good arguments for both sides. I am shocked to see anyone who plays warrior as a main that is looking forward to this. I can understand, if you play another class to want it to be more like something else. There are enough hybrids and support classes. I would have thought that warriors would want to stay pure. I am very skeptical of war banners, but like I said before, I will probably end up liking, if not loving them after I get to experience it.

You ARE a hybrid class. You can tank and dps. You are as much a hybrid class as a DK, shaman, or priest.The potential of this move for pvp is really impressive. I honestly can't see why you *wouldnt* want it. And jamming a banner in the ground to rally the troops feels like exactly the sort of heroic move a warrior would make. It doesn't seem totem-like at all.
