Warrior Blurb: My Wish List for DPS Changes

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), World of Warcraft, Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

Warriors have seen several renditions so far in the alpha. With each new version, some problems get fixed while others become even more glaring. I wrote my first wish list back before alpha was released to give myself some comparison points as we progressed deeper into the alpha cycle. After nearly ten builds worth of class changes, I figure it’s not …

Legion Feedback: Arms Warrior Talents and Artifact Traits

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), World of Warcraft Leave a Comment

Overview Arms is the second Warrior spec I tested in-depth on the Legion alpha, and since it followed my Fury testing, my Arms feedback is somewhat colored by that experience. I immediately noticed how much smoother and fluid the Arms rotation felt when compared to Fury, and that is basically the overarching theme of my entire Arms review. I will …

Warrior Blurb: Execute and the Legendary Ring

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

Welcome to another Warrior blurb, where I either discuss or whine about something on my mind related to Warriors. This week I am going to discuss (or whine about) the legendary ring and its role in Warrior parsing – particularly Arms Warriors. Many people are probably saying that the ring greatly affects everyone’s DPS and ability to parse, and Warriors …

Transplanting Vrykul Fantasy into Warriors for Legion

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), World of Warcraft 1 Comment

A solid Warrior identity has been hard for Blizzard to nail down since the game was released. While other classes were unified by something across all races and factions, being a Warrior meant different things for different races depending on your faction. Going into Legion, Blizzard has put a laser focus on the Vrykul for exploring Warrior lore, making everything …

Warrior Blurb: Two-Handed Fury, Legion, and Putting a New Spin on Arms

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), World of Warcraft, Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

Two-Handed Fury has been a community favorite spec for a long time and was mourned greatly upon its loss in Wrath of the Lich King. Gaining fame from Indalamar’s Vanilla Fury Warrior video, two-handed Fury was characterized with consistent burst from casting Slam and the auto-attack swing reset that followed. Wrath of the Lich King launched years later, and with …

My Wish List for Fury and Arms in Legion

Jaybee Role Check (Classes) Leave a Comment

Warlords of Draenor brought many changes to all warrior specs and even introduced a never-before-seen way to become a true DPS as a tank spec in the form of Gladiator Stance. In fact, Arms perhaps saw the most changes since having had many abilities either rolled into talents/glyphs, combined, or cut entirely to help carve out their very own unique …

Arms Rework: The Good, the Bad, and 6.2

Jaybee Role Check (Classes) Leave a Comment

Patch 6.0 brought a lot of ability pruning/merging for all classes, but some would argue that a few particular specs were affected more drastically than others. Arms is one such case, as it had probably the most controversial pruning/merging of abilities of all the specs. The results were so drastic that one could label the changes a ‘rework’, although that was …

DPS Warrior Guide – How to Find the Pointy End

Jaybee Role Check (Classes) Leave a Comment

            Warrior’s have been on a roller coaster ride of balance throughout Warlords of Draenor. Gladiator began as the best warrior dps spec before being nerfed, and then Arms was briefly allowed to deal awesome raid damage before getting nerfed as well; all the while Fury was doing its usual thing of sucking at the …
