Jun 25th 2009 3:06PM Ghostcrawler has recently expressed the sentiment that Warrior tanks are not getting a lot of attention for reasons outside of balance and mechanics. It might help explain why changes have been so slow despite having issues acknowledged.
The recent comments from GC:
"If warriors were too low and if we buffed them, I don’t see how that would increase the numbers on the other tanks."
"It’s not actually a goal to have 25% of each tank in Ulduar, but is also seems strange to buff the most popular tank. Won’t that just make them more popular?"
Population stats and past-history as the best tank are being factored in when considering prot warrior changes - despite the fact that some of the issues that have been acknowledged have more to do with quality of life rather than clamoring for huge buffs.
And that just plain sucks.
May 27th 2009 3:55PM It's always frustrating to read a point of view like this. Many of the statements are based on a biased out-of-game/out-of-lore perspective that makes assumptions like:
- all game/lore knowledge is available to us
- all game/lore knowledge is available to the characters we are criticizing
- all characters should have the same modern/western perspectives we do
I think the article "Varian Wrynn is Right" used facts more responsibly and hasn't been matched on the topic since. This was written merely to chest-pound and incite.

Aug 13th 2008 1:58PM Similar gray-area situation.
I got invited to tank a H. Mech. with 4 members of another guild. Only 1 of them had Omen installed, and there was often situations where they would pull aggro and get themselves, or all of us, killed. They wouldn't give me leader so I could mark (fine, whatever), and they rarely talked with me (I assumed they were talking on guild chat or vent.)
Anyways, we killed the first boss, but wiped on some trash just after. I suppose that was enough for them, so they told me to "L2Tank" and kicked me out of the group. So... I recruited some guild mates, got the group into the instance and finished the instance before they could.

Oct 25th 2007 3:33PM This may have been answered already, but does anyone know if previous versions (already in the hands of players) will be modified? Or will they maintain the pre-2.3 stats?
