The Care and Feeding of Warriors: A General Impression of Patch 3.2 {WoW}

Aug 8th 2009 4:49PM Another change for warriors that I haven't seen listed anywhere is that the Glyph of Battle now increases Battle Shout's duration by 2 minutes (up from 1). This is pretty cool, since it stacks with Booming Voice to give a 6-minute Battle Shout. It appears that the same change has been made to the Glyph of Command.

Also, note that Booming Voice now increases the radius of Battle and Commanding Shout to a whopping *45 yards*. Pure awesome.

Totem Talk: Ulduar non-set mail {WoW}

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: The strange case of rage generation in 3.1 {WoW}

May 28th 2009 2:26PM I have not yet read this full article, though I plan to do so as soon as I finish this comment. However, I would like to take a minute to defend GC with respect to the claim made in the first paragraph of this article. Here is the statement made about GC which I believe is incorrect:
"Ghostcrawler himself chimed in recently (in a discussion of the nerf to Titan's Grip and the effect it had on warrior DPS) to inform us that the claim that warrior rage generation was hurt by the changes was a myth created by warriors upset with the nerf."

Here's the quote GC was responding to in the thread:
"The fury nerf didn't seem to take into account rage lost and so it put our damage too low."

Here is GC's response:
"The TG nerf took lost rage into account. This was a myth started by warriors who didn't like the change."

So what GC was saying is that the myth was the claim that the TG nerf didn't take lost rage into account. He is *not* saying that the myth is that warrior rage generation was hurt by the TG nerf.

Why do I point this out? Because I think it's clear to most warriors that doing less damage means less rage generated. GC was being portrayed as not understanding this basic principle, when it's clear that he does.

Okay, now that I'm done with that, I'm going to get back to reading the rest of this article.

Tips for the Wrecking Ball achievement {WoW}

May 28th 2009 10:03AM This is one achievement that I've been dreading, somewhat. As a warrior, it is very difficult to get kills without becoming a focus target. About the only way I see this being feasible for me would be in 20 1-on-1 fights in a single AV (which is far more than I usually see in a single BG). I think I'm going to have to get a whole support group (pocket healer and wingmen) in order to pull this one off. =/

Maybe I'm just biased, but it seems to me that this is an achievement that definitely favors ranged classes. What do the rest of you think?
