Warrior Blurb: My Wish List for DPS Changes

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), World of Warcraft, Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) 0 Comments

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 …

Warrior Blurb: Bladestorm Now and Going Forward

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) 0 Comments

Bladestorm has been a signature ability within the Warcraft universe for as long as it has existed. In Warcraft III, it was the very powerful ultimate ability of the Blademaster hero unit. In World of Warcraft, it was introduced as the 51 point talent in the Arms tree and remained just as powerful as its Warcraft III form. Mists of …

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) 0 Comments

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 …
