    Shield Wall dropping for Fury 5.1

    Good day,

    After 5.1 it appears as though for Fury you can no longer pop on a shield, pop Shield Wall then go back to 2xWeapons and keep the buff.

    Has anyone else noticed this as having to stand around like Billy no mates with a shield on makes me sad inside.

    If one of you kind people could verify this it would be appreciated

    it appears or you can not do it? Have you tried keeping your normal mainhand on or is the buff removed just with unequiping your offhand or is it removed equipping your shield only? Just some questions to help you figure it out without me speccing fury :=)

    It was like that pre patch, at least for arms. So I'd say it's a fix if it was bugged for fury earlier.

    It has been doable since ICC but I'll test it here shortly.

    Sorry typo on OP. Yes i meant you can no longer do it for Fury.

    For Arms you always lost the Shield Wall buff as soon as you equip you 2her but for Fury you could always keep it up after 2xweapons were equipped.

    Its a shame if its changed

    Yep, no longer possible, but we can still do things like Heroic Baelroc soak, just need to keep the shield on now.

    This is a good fix, I don't see why they would actually keep something like this in the game. Its called Shield Wall, it only makes sense that it would require you to have a shield equipped for its duration in you want the full benefits.

    Good fix for PVP. Shitty that this makes warriors have that gone for PVE.

    As Fury I was experiencing this for weeks before 5.1. Experimenting with it caused me to drop my Shield Wall macro because I noticed my buff disappeared the moment I swapped my shield off. Although, based on the number of people insisting otherwise here, I'm wondering if I was hallucinating or something.

    What I did notice in 5.1 is that Spell Reflection now has the same behavior for me, leading to another deleted macro. =/

    No, it's just asshattery.

    Developers think that it adds flavor to this absolutely tasteless class. They think its fun.

    Which just baffles me, because if equipment lag and losing dps/pressure is so much fun, then why are Warriors the only class in the game that has to put up with it? I don't think anyone would care if you could still be offensive with sword and board, but ever since they raped Warriors in the Cata prepatch, it's just a huge, huge disappointing dps loss to even use Shield Wall.

    Now the only time it's ever going to be used is when it will make the difference between life and death.

    I will agree with you

    when every class in this game has to equip white weapons and be locked out of core class abilities to use defensive cooldowns.

    Melee isn't awful for Challenge Modes; you are. Melee players are a liability for the windows of time in which a tank keeps an enemy mob faced towards them, resulting in an exorbitant loss of damage or death. Melee players are a liability for people who keep rooting mobs next to them. Melee are a liability to a healer that cannot heal.

    So if it was called tenacity instead of shield wall, you'd be kk with it?

    Finally. The only reason ive been seeing so many terrible fury warriors is because they all could use a shield wall/weapon swap macro and burst with 2x 2handers and shield wall up. As arms I usually got a duel request walking from shrine to flight master from some fury, was wondering why I didnt get any this week =P

    Yeah... terrible warriors, using their class abilities like that. Positively unheard of

    Ya. TERRIBLE. WARRIORS. I love em. All of em. I hope they keep playing. Because the more terrible warriors running around without blanket silence and no more shield walling without a shield now, the more likely my next target to think im on of those TERRIBLE WARRIORS, allowing me to kill them easier.

    TERRIBLE WARRIORS:
    Warriors who cry about nerfs.
    Warriors who macro HS into every ability.
    Warriors who cry about other classes in PvP.

    WARRIORS:
    Warriors who kill members of the opposing faction and or large scary monsters.
    Warriors who do not go through a box of tissues each patch drop.


    See? subclasses! its a very complicated class

    Not really, just a lot of buttons to micro manage but when doing DPS, you macro a lot of those. The basics of the class aren't complicated at all, at least, not more complicated than any other class anyway. By the way, those subclasses of yours, they aren't mutually exclusive. A good warrior can be upset about patch notes. Just saying.
