Warrior Blurb: Bladestorm Now and Going Forward

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

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 …

Warrior Blurb: Newest Fury Changes on Alpha

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

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: 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 …

Legion Feedback: Fury – Talents and Artifact

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

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) 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 …

Warrior Blurb: Various Gripes on Alpha Fury

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

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 …

Fury in Legion: Too Angry to Live

Jaybee Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) 1 Comment

Fury has received a very controversial change to one of their cornerstone abilities going into Legion alpha. Enrage, a proc’d damage buff that grants you access to your Mastery stat, was given an additional effect that makes you take 30% more damage. The reaction to this change was heated, but the feeling turned nuclear once all the pruning of Warrior …

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 …
