So after taking a look at the patch notes of my beloved Guardian Druid I guess we'll have to adjust so some significant changes.
- Rage Generation took an overall nerve.
- Ironfur took a double nerve. First by lower availability due to lower rage Generation and second by having its effect reduced from 100% armor to 80%.
- Another double nerve is Gory Fur, now lowering costs by 25% instead of 50%, paired with lower overall rage generation.
- Some talent changes that need ingame testing, like damage buff for Pulverize and the new Talent replacing displacer beast.
In total I find this to be a nerve for this spec, that is not evened out by 4% damage increase on many base skills - espeacially when reading, that the damage increase is a lot higher for many other classes/specs (that in some cases also needed it way more, but you get what I mean, I think).
I like the thought about more Focus on deciding whether to use ironfur or mark of ursol, since we won't be able to use it in quick succession anymore.
So how do my fellow Guardian Druids think about These changes? Did anyone experience it on the PTR and can give some comparison to the live version pre 7.1.5?
How noticable are the changes to our gameplay?
I am hoping someone can share their opinion on a very specific question I have about the Arms warrior rotation (FR build). It's all about the following situation which i encounter very often: Colossus Smash has been applied to the target, i have 1 or 2 stacks of Focused Rage, and Mortal Strike and Focused Rage are both coming off cooldown at the same moment. My dilemma here is whether i should cast FR just before MS so that MS hits harder, or if i should cast FR just after MS so that MS has a higher chance of resetting due to the extra 15 Rage i spent after it.
What i have decided to do for now depends on whether Shattered Defenses is up. When it is up, i use FR before MS so MS hits extra hard. When Shattered Defenses is not up, i use FR after MS. I should add that i have both the gloves and ring legendaries (lucky me), so Rage shortage is almost never an issue for me.
I hope i didn't confuse anyone, feel free to ask for clarification. Thank you
Hey everyone and thanks for popping in and providing with some care :)
I've always been a pretty decent warrior in previous expansions. Maybe not over the top but never bad. However, this expansion, I'm feeling terribly weak. I perform so much subpar my gearlevel that my precious warrior now is nothing but a mere alt.
SO, I finally decided that it's time to stop fooling around, I want to become a good warrior again!
I've put up a log from an LFR grp on Xavius and can ofc put up more logs if needed. I know I messed up a few priorities in this fight due to utter chaos (LFR u know ;P) but apart from that it's no MAJOR difference from how I normally perform unfortunately:
My gear is mostly tanking stuff but the stats are not that different in the end:

I am using simcraft and pawn for my gearchoice and regularily scan to see if anything changes with new gear etc.
Help is much appreciated and many thanks in advance!
