Grats, though I leveled with some alliance prot warriors that did even better than you. The record I have seen was from a female human named Shieldslam with the accents over some letters, 32-2.


Only had one pocket healer, you'd imagine?

I still don't get it how Blizzard conceives this as alright, while holy shock needed a fix right away.


Umm.. because warriors would be a DPS spec while holy pallies are a heal spec?

I mean, you don't see priests or resto shaman one-shotting people with heals that just so happen to be able to be used on enemies.


Since when shield slam is a dps thing?

It's not, they're fixing it.

Shield Slam now receives a 50% bonus to attack damage from attack power (down from 100%) for Warriors below level 85.

I have to agree with Elaus on this one. They didnt nerf holy shock because it was used by healers, they nerfed it because it was one shotting people. When you can just walk up to someone, press a button and they die, as any class/spec, it obviously needs to be fixed.

Since there aren't tanks in PvP. You heal, or you DPS. if the ability does damage, it's a DPS ability in PvP. However, you are either a healer or a DPS, whereas holy shock was oneshotting people and then they'd just turn around and heal the team to full, whereas all the warrior can do is oneshot people.

I'm not saying it won't/shouldn't be brought in line, I'm explaining why holy shock was a higher priority.

They are, but let's be honest, low level PVP balance is pretty much a non-issue.
#17VonkilingtonPosted 4/17/2013 11:11:55 PM

low level pvp isn't balanced?
