I love scenarios and I just figured out why.
I love scenarios because I can queue up and run them as DPS, and when I do, I end up DPS tanking everything. Whether or not there's a healer, it almost always goes the same way. I queue, get in, wait to make sure everyone else is there, and start charging into things. The damage I take I mitigate with Die by the Sword
, the Draenei racial and my ridiculously high parry chance. Finally, after eight years
, I can get a sense of what arms tanking would be like and it's glorious. It's exactly what should have happened after Wrath of the Lich King
, instead of DK's losing
tanking spec versatility, warriors should have gained
it. Let's rename protection into juggernaut spec, and all three trees should be able to tank or DPS!
No? Just me? Ah well. At least in scenarios, this is exactly what warriors do
. I come in as prot and I wreck faces, I come in arms and I Bladestorm/Sweeping Strikes everything onto me. And I'm having a blast doing it.
Scenarios are perfect content for the warrior just getting used to level 90, finding your feet and trying to decide what role you want to play in instances. They're like danger room
practice sessions and you get to be both Colossus and
Wolverine, throwing yourself
at the mobs. I find them excessively satisfying. For some, though, they might be a little daunting. So we're going to talk about how to approach the scenario as a warrior.
