Re: The end to not so great era is today!

On a side note: goodbye Rend!

To all the bleeds I've looooved befoooooreee...

Hrm ... someone put together an inventory of abilities being removed in MoP. From the game entirely, I mean; Destro locks may not use Corruption anymore, but it'll be there.

Goodbye rend, goodbye throwndown, goodbye demoralizing shout. That's what I've noticed so far. I dig the stance changes - being able to go defensive stance in pvp for -15% dmg taken I almost feel like a DK! I haven't had a chance to really play yet though my very brief moment on the training dummy on illidan the worlds laggiest server (no it's not my computer) showed a big dps drop but I have no clue what i'm doing so hopefully that explains the loss of dps.

If you were DPSing the Raid dummy then that's what you did wrong

Good luck hitting a lvl93 mob at 85.

Do your rage gen abilities work in Def Stance? Prot's don't in non-def stance and you don't get rage from autoattacks in that stance for sure.

Demo Shout still exists as a minor CD for prot! (reduces damage from enemies hit by it by 20%, 1min CD)

And yeah, no more Throwdown, but hey. Fus ro dah, mang. Dragon Roar brings the hurt.

I'm not sure if MS will generate rage in defensive stance - I suspect not. But you should still generate rage from taking damage and the only reason to be in prot stance in pvp is if you're taking a lot of damage.

You don't generate rage from taking damage in defensive stance. Only in Zerker stance. Prot gets 1 rage/3seconds in Def (Anger Management), but that's just to help a little, and being in Zerker means Shield Slam and Revenge don't give you any rage.

It's a brave new world.

Oh bummer - so defensive stance will be even worse than pre-5.0 for a DPS warrior in pvp oh well.

Oh and btw yes I was attacking the raid dummy no wonder my dps was so terrible.
