Who knows, it's not even a content patch and it has been on the PTR for a month now, that's way too long.

As much as I'm waiting for it so as I can be a Blood Tank, I don't want them to release the patch until it's ready. So they can take their time as far as I'm concerned.

What Mojo said for sure. No patch is better than a bad one.

I think they are wrestling with a ton of balancing issues. There have been blue posts stating they are looking at a way to better balance 2handers so that they aren't psuedo gimp without making Pally and Arms Warriors broked beyond belief.

Also, they are working on retooling shaman, hunter, pally, perhaps mage and taking a strong look at how DK plays. This might not be a huge content patch, but for game play it strikes me as being a pretty bug deal.

You can be a blood tank now, it's just harder to do than the other 2 specs, but far from not viable.

I think it all comes down to one thing: Get rid of Titan's Grip. The ability to dual wield 2-handers is not only ridiculous, but far from being balanced. Who cares if you suffer from negative haste, you are still hitting like a truck.

But utlimately it's ALWAYS going to be an issue when a PvE game is balanced for PvP. In order to do it, they would have to start the mechanics over and rebuild the game.

Mojo, Fury is not at all over powered. None of our strikes are based on weapon damage, they are all a flat number + AP.

You sure, midget? I don't have a warrior, but looking at Wowhead:

Slam, Cleave, Heroic Strike and Mortal Strike (yeah, I know it's Arms) all do weapon damage plus X. Are these just old data or something?

Slam isn't very strong, it's impossible to spec TG and Mortal Strike, Cleave same as Slam. I am a raider and the TG warrior we run with does the same DPS as our other top people. It's far from overpowered.

To say NOTHING about the item stats you get from dual wielding two-handers.

Fury warriors are completely balanced around dual wielding 2 handers. They are not balanced around having no weapons and then get this huge boost above and beyond the rest of the world with their 2hand weps.

If you assume that TG is a 20% boost then the rest of their tree and DPS is balanced at 80%. Warriors are so far from being the OP class right now, trust me, I am raiding, I can tell you, they're not even close.

I just found out why they are nerfing Volley. Ye gods, man. If others have aggro, Volley, Volley, Volley, Volley, no cooldown high damage AE DoT that can crit on each tic. Uses a lot of mana? Who cares? Switch to Viper for half a fight and back to Dragonhawk! And it only uses one arrow/bullet!

Hunters have been overpowered since Echoes of Doom. I played a 70 hunter in WAYYY less than optimal gear that was topping dmg in raids at 70 against very good people.

They nerfed Barrens chat on my server. I'm pretty happy about it. HFP chat got a buff though. Apparently all the Barrens tools are rolling DK alts.
