I like to compare the warrior class with other plate wearing melee classes, the death knight and paladin.
Even though Warriors were good in patch 5.0, not for long in patch 5.1
Avatar no longer immune to snares
Gag order does not work on players anymore
Intimidating shout is now 90 second cooldown
Disarm will only last 8 seconds
and yet paladins and death knights
will still be on top with burst and healing, Favouritism Blizzard?
Bring the them back to par with the warrior,
The warrior only has 1 heal and they aren't very good compared the paladin and death knight
(enraged Regeneration, Second wind or impending Victory)
3 heals, world of glory, flash of light and (Holy is Prism, Light's Hammer or Execution Sentence)
is too much for them, all paladins do is kite,
paladins use their speed and building up their holy power spamming word of glory toping up the paladin's health every time like unlimited Lay on hands, spamming their Burden of guilt or Repentance and sacred shield makes it a whole lot harder cant snare a paladin, hand of freedom and Emancipate, remember?
spamming piercing howl is just a rage waster
Did i forget to mention increase healing, holy avenger, a 2min cooldown and Avenging wrath a 3min cooldown, a total of 50% increased healing, you don't need to be a mathematician to know retribution paladins heal excess amount for a spec that is dps, too bad i wont have a good chance stopping heals when Gag order is taken out
Now on to the death knight, once again they don't need 3 heals Lichborne, Death strike and
(Death pact, Death Siphon or Conversion)
Spamming Chains of ice and Death's advance or Chilblains is a very strong control, yet no nerfs there
Personally i would love to see paladins nerf to the ground but we all know that wont happen in a million years
"cough cough, "favouritism"
so i suggest removing Word of glory and Emancipate from Retribution paladins they already got hand of Freedom
Should make paladins wait that 25 second cooldown
Remove Death strike from unholy and frost death knights, no one likes a spammer, death strike should only be Blood spec and make chains of ice a 10 Second cooldown
And finally for the warrior, Improve the talents enraged Regeneration, Second wind and impending Victory,
or add a secondary heal baseline
and if blizzard really needs to nerf Gag order just make it A silence for 4 seconds but a 24 second cooldown
but warriors really need control
make piercing how cost no rage
Reduce Recklessness to a 2min cooldown
Taste for Blood(overpower has 50% to gain 1 stack up to maximum 3 stacks of Taste of Blood)<more consistant
Show a little love to warriors try not nerf all time, make this class more exciting
