May 13th 2010 5:56PM I could use help with this as well, I've got the whole single condition aura completely mastered but the mutliconditional is what's giving me problems.
Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
May 1st 2010 4:07AM That's not what we are saying.
A low geared warrior will do lower dps than a lower geared mage. This is caused by the current way rage functions, the harder you hit, the more rage, the more attacks. It's exponential. We take advantage of exponential scaling but we also suffer greatly at lower gear levels because of it.
A warrior in the highest tier gear available (be it naxx, ulduar, ToC or ICC) will do very good dps (in specific situations especially) because of this exponential scaling.
The flaw in the system is that warriors are balanced around the infinite rage scenario (be it cleave, boss dmg or just hard hits) and undergeared warriors obviously do not have that infinite rage yet we are balanced around it.
May 1st 2010 4:01AM Mr. Rossi, I 100% agree with your statements. Your extremely accurate when you describe our class and the way we perform in different situations. You are correct when you say we are losing our huge advantage in particular situations (cleave fights etc.) and have not heard a thing about them upping our dmg where we are weak (single target, moving etc). If these changes were implemented RIGHT now, during WotLK we would be EXTREMELY undertuned and would be pretty much pathetic compared to other classes in tanking and dps roles.
Having said that, I believe that Blizz is truly working from the ground up on class balance when it comes to Cata. I believe they will not release a truly unbalanced class for launch or even beta. You are correct that we will be undertuned, but I believe ( /hope) that blizz understands this and (like you said) brings up our baseline dps.
Your article has many valid points and I hope that Blizz sees this all coming and makes the necessary changes.

Apr 14th 2010 7:33PM lol I'm pretty sure he's talking about his own, presumably to not break CC?

Oct 13th 2009 8:09AM It is so they can use b.net to cross server (and game) chat for when they release the cross server LFG in the next patch. And with the release of SC 2 and Diablo 3 coming up why have 3 different accounts? Battle.bet accounts will be good for WoW.
