Nobody uses? Wait what who told you that?
I use it probably on every single fight this tier at one point or another.
Shit guys i use zerk stance all the time in pvp when im not in def stance...
Does not need changing.
Geme smtn 2 kielllllll.
I dissagree meathead, i do not need the 25% less dmg on the fights im currently at. Therefor i rather go berserk stance and get tons of more rage and squize out that extra dps. sub 20% with raid dmg = endless execute spam, who doesnt like that..
I'm not sure about you guys, but I stance dance like crazy (pretty much on stance cooldown) on Garalon heroic - and I love it.
Along with trading safeguards with my other fury warrior on every crush, as well as dropping my raidcoooldowns. I feel as if warrior skill cap is incredibly high right now.
Not to mention within all that maintain a cleave / single target rotation.
They need more fights like this, made progression so much more fun IMO.
Edit: forgot to mention d stance is also included in there.

I liked the original idea of Battle being single-target and Berserker being AoE. That's just as "right situation/wrong situation" as the current stances, at least. The situation as it stands is a good-sounding idea as well, but from what I've seen, the raid damage from most encounters doesn't seem to be strong enough to warrant switching. I should get my hands on some numbers and see what the cutoff is, which will be based on haste and stuff.
If I was going to buff either, I'd probably fixate on the names of the stances, go RPG, and do something imbalanced and stupid like:
-- Battle Stance: While enraged, you cannot be Disarmed.
-- Berserker Stance: While enraged, you cannot be Feared.
-- Vengeance doesn't count.
Yeah...that wouldn't be imba at all.
it is a lot when you lose a lot of health. And it happens in many pve situations.
It really is *true* stance dancing now. See a crush coming from Garalon? Pop zerker stance. Hop back out, rinse, repeat. Whenever you're about to take unavoidable raid damage, it's a great preemptive action that will generate a serious DPS gain.
I think i did the calculations a bit ago, and essentiall, if you are taking 6% hp in damage every 3 seconds, or 2% every second (Which happens a ton in any fight with constant AoE pulsing, Elegon sub 50%, Spirit Kings Titan Gas, Feng AoE phases, Force and Verve, ect), it'll give you more rage regen then Battle Stance will. Wth the fights i mentioned in particular, it'll give you about 50% more rage then Battle Stance. This is Arms only, I don't know Fury's rage regen, but if its still 10 rage per 2h melee swing, I would assume that berserker would be even better due to the 15% ish miss chance on melee swings, hit dependent.
Berserker Stance is definitely useful, it start being better than Battle Stance at about 10% damage taken per second. However, I prefer the old passif way of gaining rage when taking damage, I don't really like the idea to move that mechanic into a stance.
