These nerfs would be much better to deal with if Warrs didn't get screwed with every patch they've made since Wrath. I honestly can't stand being on my prot warrior. It feels horrible compared to my other tank classes...
I'm hoping that when 5.2 goes live that Shockwave will function differently for Protection versus Arms and Fury; namely not additional 20 second cooldown triggered if less than 3 targets hit.
oh look another they nerfed my class and that's why i no longer play WoW anymore
My point, though, is that in today's game, you, as a tank, do not require that level of control over mobs. If you did, don't you think every other tank would have a cone or AoE stun? And while yes, some tanks can spec into talents that bring similar control, none of them come to mind that have less than a 40 sec. CD. In other words, I'm sure no prot warrior will truly suffer dealing with the 40 sec CD if they use it single target it. It is what it is.
1 talent system too rule them all.
You are lying! I never hit you! YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, LISA!
Actually stuff like Bloodbath will just get weaker for Arms, because you can't have luck and align high TFB stacks inside those anymore. Burst all gone, while the overall damage is simply as weak as before. Stormbolt does even it up a bit and probably will be PvE choice for Arms next patch. Maybe we will see some funky cleave usage instead of HS just to buff the overpower damage by overpower glyph, hehe (not really though, because of weak rage income).
Although one can argue that next tier weapons are going to "fix" that damage problem again.
