    I really disliked having to switch between stances to use certain abilities back in the day. Personally I'm happy they took it out, although I can understand your sentiment. As a prot main, I would love to have gladiator stance back though.

    Stance dancing didn't take any finesse or make you skilled, stop kidding yourselves. QoL change to get rid of it imo and much rather have it this way.

    It's not like the game already feels slow enough nowadays. Might as well add a bit more.

    If and only if they bring back the exact rotation of cataclysm arms warrior, i'd be intrigued to have stances back.
    If not? Hell no... It was never that fun to be honest, not in classic, not in retail. Only during cataclysm did I actually find it fun and adding to the skill ceiling.

    They could bring them back but instead of limiting ability use, make them give big buffs in certain areas so you want to be in that stance for cerrtain abilities. they could even make stance dancing a thing by adding an ability or talent that gave a bigger buff for a short time after swapping stances.

    Sadly, that ship has sailed.

    Stance dance used to be the best part of being a Warrior, and i will remember it fondly. Main reason why i like playing Classic so much.

    This.

    Everything was macros and there wasn't any extra 'skill' involved. Also, why this thread again?

    No, just no. It's just terrible and feels clunky. Also considering all the gcd changes it would feel even worse.

    I hated the "stance dance". I like stances, but not having to switch stances mid rotation just to maximize. It felt like an identity crisis.

    No one loved playing Warrior more than me back in the day, stance dancing felt amazing but it's an outdated concept and pointless nowadays.

    Fuck stance dancing, never enjoyed it. Never enjoyed my warrior more than in cataclysm when they removed stances for the most part. Didn't have to switch to berserk stance in order to pummel. Didn't have to switch to defensive stance in order to pop shield wall. With everything being on the global CD now, stance dancing would kill warriors.

    Ye that is fucking nice.
    Make classes a little more difficult to master, easy to play is oke.
    That is not dead which can eternal lie,

    I don't miss stance dancing as part of your rotation but I did quite enjoy having to swap them depending on the situation in PvP.

    Consequently, the current iteration isn't too bad IMO - although it bothers me to have to talent into it. I'd appreciate a baseline solution, ideally incoporating the reintroduced prot abilities into def stance.

    Stance dancing was horribly implemented TBH. It shouldnt come back (like just about every unpruned shitty ability) in its former state.

    They could however stand to reintroduce it in a way that works with the modern game, the only way i can see 'stance dancing' working would be as 'aoe' stance and 'single target' stance. Basically just renaming sweeping strikes to berserker stance with berserker stance icon above your head.

    If you want to stance dance, go play Classic WoW.

    I miss stance dancing but I get my fix in Classic.
    Live will always be a braindead mashing with little thought (will still try the new xpac though).

    Yes I agree with you, the dance itself could be macroed but as you say it required the player to plan ahead to some extent. Not saying it is a huge thing of its own but all these small bits taken away adds up.

    Hinter basically did this in cata with our aspects. My guild hated me because either had /cast !aspect of the hawk in so many of my abilities and all they would hear is the cast sound over and over again lol.
