    Uhm, that's bullshit. Prot warriors were kind of a mixed bag at the start of the expansion, then later got a huge buff with the class update and the addition of devastator and after all that got some very minor nerfs. Current prot warriors are way stronger than they have been at the start of the expansion.

    No they are right. Prot warrior was massively overpowered at the start. Then they got nerfed hard and have never fully recovered.

    Useless Warrior article imo.

    It's as if they didn't play at classic. 2H warriors were frightening, even more-so in PvP. Arcanite Reaper anyone? Arms Warriors with raiding gear did pretty well. I still remember how our main Arms Warrior obtained Sulfuras and just cleaved through everything like butter.

    Also disappointed that there's no mention of the Prot Warrior damage buff patch in WotLK. Best patch ever for Prot Warriors (I had been Prot since MC). I could finally kill stuff so fast, that day I had the most fun in WoW since ages.

    Mage looked cool, and now it's even better.
    Shaman was cool and looks better in 7.3 except for CL.

    Hunter looked like dogshit and still looks like dogshit after the update... wth blizz?

    Limit "decided to not continue the race for this tier" for one simple reason. They had too many players get banned for account sharing. lol

    That Warrior article is seriously flawed and shows some serious lack of knowledge about warriors from past to now. Absolutely not recommended.

    That's a terrible, poorly-written article on warriors that glosses over large swaths of history of the spec, provides no sources or facts, and sweeping generalizations. Doesn't talk much about class fantasy, or the development of arms and fury into separate specs. Doesn't really talk about much substance whatsoever, really.

    Feed them more clicks/views through here, eh?

    The animations are cool, but the current build on ptr is so buggy that if your target dies prematurely, your character is stuck in a casting animation.

    RIP Arcane Missiles, more and more of Warcraft's signature blocky texture and animations gone.

    THose mage animations are crappy. Why change what isn't broken? How about fixing what is before changing what isn't?

    That's a good thing.

    New blizzard spell looks good.

    OK Now do the history of Paladins, Priests, Shaman, or Druid.

    After the addition of Titan’s Grip in Wrath of the Lich King, warriors didn’t really change much for the next few expansions. From the launch of Cataclysm through our journey to Pandaria and back to Draenor, there were no great alterations.
    How do you have an entire article about how warriors have evolved since vanilla, and then just gloss over rage mechanics (both in generation and in spending) being completely reworked arguably the largest change to the way the class was played that has ever happened, as "no great alterations"?

    Also a complete removal of stance requirements for abilities is just "minor quality of life" as a change guys.

    Good grief. Nothing really of note happened in Japan 1945 except for the firebombing of Tokyo and two minor nuclear explosions.

    Please take the warrior article out of here... there is so much wrong, this should not be featured on MMO-C!

    Warrior bad dps in Classic, lol... they did so much dps that aggro was the permanent problem for them and they did less dmg in the end, because threat... which is the reason why they totally shit on everyone on Patchwerk (but only really that fight)
