Fury on the beta

5 posts in this topic

Hi Folks,

 

I wanted to wade in on the Heroic Strike / Fury debate....e.g. it being removed from the spec in WoD. I didn't see a thread here on IV- apologies if I missed it.

 

I was agreeing with the general angry mob that this was going to over simplify the spec and had also heard that there were issues in over capping rage. I wanted to see if this held true, so I rolled a warrior on the Beta.

 

Happy to say that I thought it played very well- dare I say better than ever.

 

I had no issue with rage capping....Wild Strike, with its .5 second GCD, was allowing me to dump a ton of rage on command. I was playing with the talent Furious Strikes also, which drops the rage cost to 20. Even so, no problems in that regard. It was actually a ton of fun also...the ability really lives up to its tool tip. 

 

I also felt that the class has not lost complexity. Raging Blow now adds two seconds to the active Colossus Smash, so balancing this with Wild Strike and Bloodthirst seems to make the rotation seem more varied and interesting. Also, maybe its just me, but in live I just mash Heroic Strike during Colossus Smash. That feels less skilful compared to a considered use of Wild Strike whilst trying lengthen the Colossus Smash Window as much as possible. I think there's also a glyph to remove the cool down from Bloodthirst. Very interested to see how this all works out.

 

Admittedly I'm not the most experienced of Warriors, but I think the spec is in a very good place (for now). I feel that the ability pruning has worked very well in this case.

 

AOE also felt good. Not sure if this is final (need to check) but Whirlwind was giving 2 stacks of Meat Cleaver each time, stacking up nicely to a 4 way cleave of Raging Blow.

 

Cheers,

Nic

I'd love to give insight to how the Warriors are playing on Beta. Unfortunately, though, Blizzard has yet to grace me with a Beta Key and I've seem to have lost all entries made thus far.

 

With the cinematic and release date around the corner I feel that I may end up waiting until live to get any legwork in on seeing what they've done to the class.

 

I'm glad you made the post, though. It's good to read what others are experiencing and it seems Blizz is even taking note with the many changes they've made so far to them.

Enhanced whirlwind.....definitely like it. Makes the AOE rotation more viable for adds that go down fast smile.png

 

Can't seem to find the ability that allows for turbo Wild Strikes...must be in there somewhere...

Is there any feedback concerning the SMF, TG and Arms on Beta (with the last change they made)

      Here on Icy Vein's under the Arms Warrior DPS guide here is the recommended relic choice. I was under the impression that [Exploit the Weakness] was our top priority even if it meant 20-25iLvl difference. Since it would increase the proc chance by a factor of x2 with all three relics increasing Tacticians...
      Why does this guide on Icy Veins say otherwise? Is it because the information is out of date and hasn't been updated?

      Unfortunately this is not someting I can just run a Sim on because I don't currently have any [Exploit the Weakness] relics.

      So,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...

      How does Battle Cry actually work? Does the 100% crit chance guarantee a crit? I ask because I've been trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong to boost my DPS and noticed today, multiple times, while working on the Raid dummy I was not enraging when I expected to due to Battle Cry being up. 
       
      I created a short clip that shows this happening:  
       
       
      Is this normal or a bug?
