Warriors are not stupidly OP at all, eh?

Being able to obliterate every other class 1vs1 is perfectly fine according to Blizzard.


Just because you're bad at PVP, doesn't mean classes are broken. PVP isn't balanced for 1v1, and they're already nerfing Prot in PVE too, just to appease the battleground kiddos.


How so? I don't remember anything about prot other than shield barrier nerf.

From: Glockass1 | #002
a good unholy DK can obliterate warriors

From: Glockass1 | #004
pillar hump + indirect damage.

From: Glockass1 | #006
necrotics + chillblains


How the hell does kiting with DoTs up = obliterate? A slow death is nothing near obliteration.
Unholy DKs get destroyed by Warriors, they have terrible physical damage mitigation.

If you're going to troll at least try to be semi-decent at it.


whatever

Oh, so literally nothing that would affect a tank.

The shockwave nerf will be annoying every once in a while when lag causes you to miss most of the group and/or you're not paying attention and accidentally use it on 1-2 mobs.

How does a Shockwave nerf not affect Prot? Shockwave is Prot's centerpiece, it's their iconic spell.

The shockwave nerf doubles the base cooldown of shockwave, but as long as you hit at least 3 targets that new cooldown is halved. The net result is that shockwave behaves exactly like it does currently for tanks.

Ohhhhh, you've not done anything higher than LFD, nor have you stepped in Brawler's Guild.
Gotcha.

I did but Bruce ate me. Strafing is hard.

So there are a number of occasions that can be counted on one hand where tanks will find the shockwave nerf to be annoying. An effort was made in this to largely only affect it in PvP. At least they did that instead of just saying "40 second CD cuz arena that okay?"
