Warriors not viable in arena? WindWalker monks say hi.
i think nerfing warrior was ok, but i disagree gliph of gag order, maybe they should change it in to a heroic throw interrupt, and not a silence, just for not killing warriors utility at all.. avatar was too op, it was a 20 seconds freedom, that was god mode, but now, breacking snares or movement impair effects it´s fine, makes yo think a lot more when is the best opportuty to use your CD´s... im just level 71 with my first character in wow, warrior obviously, and i love it. Blizzard just make sure you are not going to kill warriors pls, they are fine this way, DO NOT KILL US .. that´s my opinion, and sorry 'bout my english it´s not my mother tongue.
Didn't mages get a little nerfing as well to their aoe slows/roots?
And it's totally possible that you, not only as a warrior, but also as an individual wow player are having trouble with one class. I think I remember reading that mages can be hard counter to warriors, but that class might be giving you trouble just because you are who you are. As a feral, I myself have had a lot of trouble with shadow priests (no clue why), I have a hunter buddy who can't get beat locks. You could do some research into mages. Getting to know your enemy and whatnot. It may give you more understanding into how they beat you.
HAHAHAHA a warrior complaining about mages...god forbid you have ONE counter class...Warriors are so absurd in current form against all melee and casters that fear....Bad warriors are rolling to high ratings...if you aren't then wow...I got into a 2v2(i know dont take it seriously) against 2 warriors...I popped IBF and every possible cooldown I could to stay alive and I still died in about 2 seconds...yea thats fair right? Stop complaining about one class being your counter. It's SUPPOSED to be that way...also it takes a lot more skill to be a good mage than a good warrior in todays wow....and in b4 people say oooo 1 shot macro for mages....you still need to know how to control your enemies as a mage...as a warrior its tie heroic strike to everything via macros and just smash your face on the keyboard...I know because I have a level 90 warrior too...as well as a mage and my mage is by far harder to win with.
Correction: moronic warrior players CAN'T be viable in arena. No longer can you become a god immune to anything and everything while you decimate everything with no sense of skill. Although you can still decimate everything with no sense of skill if they ain't a frost mage.
HAHA - OP not liking a taste of their own medicine? U were fine when u were a wrecking ball and we were all bitching about warriors. Now, you get to have a piece of humble pie while i sit here and eat popcorn. Your tears are like sweet sweet nectar. Just to be clear, i feel absolutely ZERO sympathy. In fact, i would go as far as to say this thread brings me joy and that warm fuzzy feeling you get when warriors QQ.
That is all.
You still have the highest representation of all classes. I'm sorry but you are totally fine, actually still a bit stronger than others.
Here is the class distribution of all classes in 3v3 arena, left column being 2200+ distrubution and the right column is global distrubution. All information is taken from worldofwargraphs.
This game isnt warriors vs mages. Because you cant 1v1 them does not mean you are not viable, infact they are still really good.
That being said I think mages need some nerfs. Their damage is over the top.
I think its kinda silly they hotfix rape locks, yet leave mages untouched. The whole idea that their burst is designed around a stun is a bad idea to start...
imo what made warriors so dangerous last patch was how they could stun into a blanket silence, while having huge dmg and mobility on top of it.
Mages are just as bad. I wish frostbomb was made to not crit on frozen targets.

Can we please stop posting things along the lines of "LOL SUCK IT WARRIORS" /diehard mage defenders/ another 60 people saying "warriors arent viable? LOL" ( missing any point of a possible discussion) and actually have a discussion about the state of warriors and mages in pvp? The OPs point was to ask why mages havnt gotten nerfed when warriors, hunters, locks, and hybrids all have. Just get past the " warriors not being viable" and actually post constructively...
The game isn't balanced around 1on1. Against a good mage you may lose 1on1, although most mages are derp derp idiots who will let you blow your cooldowns on them.
As I said, even with the nerfs - warriors do absolutely retarded damage. Warrior has turned from a graceful class in years prior where you could easily tell the difference between an 1800 and 2200 warrior - to a drooling idiot mongo class who can trinket the first thing while blowing all their cooldowns, and often still get a kill.

play an ele and then complain about viability
i don't even play a shaman and i feel bad for them
Warlocks got nerfed on their main damage spells
What about frost mages, Blizzard´s favorite creation?
They clearly don´t want any other caster to compete with mages, pvp wise
Shockwave cooldown needs to be nerfed to at least 30 seconds. Warriors are still too strong, mages are just the most OP atm. Doesnt mean warriors need a buff.
Being a DK ( a horribad pvp-dk with next to no skill at the class, i might add), i don't think any kind of mage is hard to play against. Being imune/almost immune to damage, able to doublepull, slow them down, stealing spells, debuff them, ranged stun them etc.
So with ops logic, not being top of all classes, there's no problem with frost mages.
But again, i'm bad, so i mostly meet bad mages.
Hard to take a thread serious when it's a warrior saying they are no longer viable, because his counterclass suddenly _can_ counter him :P
Everyone has so much to say
They talk talk talk their lives away
