Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the
World of Warcraft. Matthew Rossi will be your host today.
It's actually taken me most of this expansion to feel like I really am
a DPS warrior, instead of just a tank who isn't tanking at the moment. I still like
to tank - I make use of my prot offspec fairly often, I tank LFR, I do old Cataclysm
content as prot - but last night during Siege, as I finally got my second Greatsword of Pride's Fall
from Heroic Sha of Pride, it finally clicked
that yeah, I DPS. I raid with two DPS specs even though it means I have to respec between prot and arms every day. I spend hours researching the best possible and best feasible gear sets, I just set up a new Weak Aura that plays Cookie Monster at me whenever Recklessness is up. Man, is the Cookie Monster voice the best Weak Aura voice of all time? I don't see how there can be any debate of this issue.
I'm finally comfortable with my specs, my rotation, and what I'm asked to do in raids as DPS. I finally don't mind dying to stupid BS like the wall of elementals spawning on Heroic Dark Shaman just as I run out of the green ooze. I know exactly how to time my cooldowns for maximum destruction on H. Malkorok. I am a DPS warrior
I realize that I'll probably end up tanking now that I've said this. Anyway, for all of us who enjoy murdering things, be it with daggers, giant weapons, fel magic or the power of the arcane, elemental fury... however you kill stuff, this Queue is dedicated to us, the DPS.
This question is probably a little late to the queue but I was wondering about it after reading the last KYL article comments:
