Pasting this from WoW Warrior forums to try to get some input.
Hi there! I'm a new warrior (had to change when they announced Glad spec, the idea looked too cool). Let me start this by saying I will ONLY play Glad, I don't really enjoy the other specs very much. I don't have any problems with the semi recent nerfs (20% off SS and Rev). Our damage was too high...I just wish it could have been done a different way. One of the unforeseen changes that the nerf did was to weaken the "Heavy Repercussions" talent putting it 8-10% behind Unyielding Strike.
This is fine and all...if using Unyielding Strikes didn't completely ruin my raiding experience! With my current keybind setup (which is nearly impossible for me to change, I've tried) I finish raid and my wrist/forearm actually hurts from having to spam Heroic Strike so much.
For all you non-warriors out there, most specs have an APM (actions per minute) of 45-60. Pretty reasonable. Glad Wars NOT using Unyielding strikes are ~70 APM. Still completely okay, don't like Heroic Strike, don't play the HS spec. Using Unyielding Strikes APM for Glad gets to 90-95 APM. NINETY.
Throughout an entire 5 minute fight. you will have 450+ relevant keystrokes. 1/3 of which will be Heroic Strike, which for those that don't know is OFF THE GCD and has it's own CD. Often leading you to hitting 2 keys at the same time. Constantly.
To sum things up. Unyielding Strikes physically hurts me and I don't want to take a talent that is an 8-10% damage loss. I would hope that we could restore Shield Slam and Revenge to their old state and just lower the bonus damage of Glad stance by 5% (or whatever number we need to make it equal to live) or change Unyielding Strikes to possibly increase the damage of your next heroic strike by X% per stack to remove some of the button spam.
