The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Where the Action is Not {WoW}

Jul 16th 2009 8:01PM I know this sounds a bit cheezy but Karilyn has a point. We aren't being heard. I don't think rerolling is the answer. After all, it's a slow to get a response. Also last time Warriors seemed to disappear, they just made DKs in response. So what if we disappeared quite suddenly and in a very loud way? I'm talking about a "Walk-out" of sorts. We should find one day, when Warriors are most needed, and simply not log in on our warrior toons. I already hear the responses "I'll get /gkicked if I don't show up for raid" but half of you are already talking about rerolling anyways. WE could further the effect by forming a "march" on a server and rolling level 1 warriors and running from one end of Azeroth to the other. Even if it doesn't accomplish a thing, you will always remember having the most fun on a WARRIOR.

Ghostcrawler: "We still are not convinced that Warrior tanks are operating at some huge deficit" {WoW}

Feb 18th 2009 4:07AM AMG He's not QQing about how horrible warriors are. He's lamenting the loss of class specialization. Don't get so fired up. Warriors are not a hybrid class. Druids and Paladins are. Those classes are capable of healing, DPSing and tanking by swtitching forms or switching gear. Warriors tank or DPS. That's it. Because we AREN'T a hybrid class. Basically, what you're saying is hybrids should be as good or better then their non hybrid classes. WTF is the point of a non hybrid then? Why have more than one class in the game at all then? Just make everyone a form changing paladin, with some casts and the ability to use a bow. Hybrids should be good at everything they can do but never the best at all they do. Why'd you roll a druid if you wanted to be the best tank? I didn't roll my tank to be good at heals. Don't make my class suffer b/c you want to be the top of the heals, DPS, AND threat.
I WAS going to play nice.

Ghostcrawler: "We still are not convinced that Warrior tanks are operating at some huge deficit" {WoW}

Feb 18th 2009 3:50AM So they gave som AOE abilities to Warriors and some single target to pallies. That's awesome. Now everyone can tank everything to some degree. Why toss the specialization though? This big problems with War. Tanks in TBC was the lack of AOE, essentially needing to be carried in a raid to the boss. They fixed that, thank god. Give us back our single target specialization though. Don't buff the threat gen on multitarget, just on single targets. I don't mind having to tab target on groups b/c we shouldn't be the best AOE. Why are warriors still being punished for being warriors? Need proof? I did some armory trolling to look at Prot raiding specs in some top guilds and the top guilds tend to have their warriors at fury spec more so then anything. Doesn't that bother anyone else? It's like we go from one extreme to the other with this class. Prot was the only spec Pre LK and now fury seems to be the only spec during LK.

The Queue: It's always sunny in Azeroth {WoW}

Feb 18th 2009 3:17AM If racial abilities have been homogenized and no racial abilities give one race a definite benefit over others, then do humans have to get MORE rep then all the other races for the rep grind achievements? I'm not bitter or anything...

Breakfast Topic: Death Knights and you {WoW}

Dec 30th 2008 5:06PM Anyone still rolling one? are you serious? Come to the hyjal server and /who deathknight in hellfire. All there are are DKs. As too being jealous? If I were jealous, I'd go get on MY deathknight. News flash only the newest of new players CAN'T make a DK. Hero class? pshh. No I'm mad because very VERY few DKs know the slightest bit on how to play their toons. It's not their fault, after all they start out really at 58. Any other class would know almost all their moves to some degree at that lvl. I'd like to see DPS DKs control their threat and tanks able to hold it. It doesn't help that all the DKs just get mopped up into their guilds run and get thrown raid gear. It's disgusting. then they bring that threat pulling BS into my PuG and blame the tank.
Dear population of WoW,
Learn your class or get back on your healers and casters.
Love, Deq

Ask WoW Insider: The ninja debuff {WoW}

Nov 25th 2008 5:57AM As a warrior that mines, this does bug me. I do believe clearing the way to the node does make it yours to some degree.I won't say it should have any type of rule or debuff. Instead, I think it comes down etiquette. Should you steal my mob or my node, you will be remembered as having terrible manners. I see you as a less respectable person and as such, I would not invite you to groups or raids. Sounds harsh but if you are the type to steal what is going to stop you from being a ninja looter or leaving in the middle of a raid because you were out rolled.

Usually the ANTI-QQers are the ones that come in to question. Are you really tired of the crying or are you afraid your gold farming will be disrupted?
My advice is to turn the other cheek if you are the victim but DO take notes. Don't be a ninja or if you do, don't be surprised when you get treated like trash.

Breakfast Topic: Too much politics in your WoW? {WoW}

Nov 4th 2008 1:56PM It was becoming a problem with our passionate members so, our guild has made a "no religion or politics" rule for G chat and prefer not to see it in trade due to the guild name attached to the members name. It'll be over soon, so I can endure the trade chat for now. It definately is better than the anal spam on hyjal.

Ret to be nerfed "to the ground" {WoW}

Oct 21st 2008 2:26PM For Ret Paladins to be even near the top in DPS is a severe mistake on Blizzards part. Warriors and Rogues should be at the very top of the melee DPS scales. Ret Paladins have other abilities to entice raiders and guilds such as Buffs and Auras and now even a sap like ability for CC (WTF??.) The ret paladin has become more of a one man army then a fair and balanced class. No that's not funny. It's pathetic. If you wanted that, the console games offer thousands of options to do so. Instead the rogue and DPS warrior have to compete with these PvP spec'd paladins. The paladins have a viable healing tree and an EXCELLENT Tanking tree. Why does blizzard feel the need to give them my DPS spot as well? Honestly, what would you pick: A dps warrior with a 2 min buff of slightly increased health OR slightly increased damage or a Paladin offering more than 200 more dps than the 2nd place DPSer despite being poorly geared with buffs, cc, AOE, and even more damage with holy damage.
You joke about the "QQers" but seriously??" Arcane mages may be OP but as a DPS spec they aren't invading 2 other classes entirely.
Paladins now have 4 possible jobs. Healing, Tanking, DPS, and PvP. All of which they now excel at. Other classes are struggling with 2 or 3. There is something SERIOUSLY wrong with that.
Enjoy your World of Pally Craft. Call me when things get closer to balanced. Fable 2 just came out.
