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: Newest Fury Changes on Alpha

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), World of Warcraft 0 Comments

A new alpha build is up, and that means a new slew of changes to Fury to even further butcher the spec. Let’s review the changes and assess the damage, shall we? Keep in mind these are just the changes I want to highlight, not the entire list.   Bloodthirst: Buffed from 200% damage to 300%, bonus crit chance removed, …

Legion Feedback: Fury – Talents and Artifact

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), World of Warcraft 0 Comments

I’ve written a few articles outlining my thoughts on various Warrior content on alpha, but without alpha access it was always the perspective of an outsider looking in. I’ve had the chance to play the alpha quite a bit this last week, and have new insight on many of the changes being done to various classes. I’ve given the majority …

Warrior Blurb: Execute and the Legendary Ring

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

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 …

Warrior Blurb: Various Gripes on Alpha Fury

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

The first alpha build saw some ups and downs to Fury. Some of the ups included seeing old favorites such as Overpower and Heroic Strike make a return, while some of the downs were Overpower being garbage and the talents being a mis-matched jumble. Despite the talents being shoddy, everyone was satisfied with Rampage and felt the flow of Fury …

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) 0 Comments

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 …

Legion and Fury Warriors: Fulfilling the Berserker Fantasy

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) 1 Comment

Reading the news from WoW’s panel at Dragoncon was quite exciting for many WoW players. Almost all specs are getting tweaked or overhauled, and some of them are even getting renamed to better fit their theme. After all, what a better time to do so, given the fact that expansions usually see class changes, and that Legion itself shouts Class …

My Wish List for Fury and Arms in Legion

Jaybee Role Check (Classes) 0 Comments

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 …

Cheesin' to the Top as Fury in HFC

Jaybee Mass Resurrection (Raids) 1 Comment

With the launch of 6.2 and the release of Hellfire Citadel, people are most likely going to be pugging normal and even heroic HFC groups for some awesome loot. Many of those people will probably be Warriors expecting greatness since the sims said Warriors are OP. But, many probably do not know how to achieve it. A lot of information is …

DPS Warrior Guide – How to Find the Pointy End

Jaybee Role Check (Classes) 0 Comments

            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 …
