2k in one hit vs r6 isn't burst? M'kay
I have champ/vk/para spec as well. What rb spec do you use ? Mb your spec sucks
SOOoooooo , which pvp rank is your pyro errr. Warrior I ment.
NO seriously, if you actually play a warrior then you just lost all credibility.
Yes 2 hand RB with SLI some VK etc can do ok but scales so poorly and misses some precious off GCD burst abilities.
More comedy plox.
Bursts don't actually scale AS bad as people think. You don't use a gcd with it thus you can do another point builder, so you only lose 40% weapon damage (thats quite a lot though) , and get twice the ap scaling (which is meaningless right now, but if they fix it it might just make up for the difference).
Rb/para/vk is just weak for burst. It CAN ocassionally hit for 2k in a gcd (if everything crits), but that's simply not enough. But hey,when all the stars align (crits, wm proc, no absorbs on target etc) dw warriors can burst glass cannon build r6 people harder than that at range.
Ill post 800 rs 1200 burst ss on a rank 6, one swing, l2spec
RB/champ/para your bursts will hit a max of 1100
in a 51 RB build your bursts hit for over 1200
A 1200 earth or storm burst ability is impossible. especially in your garbage spec.

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the un-****ing of our offensive souls.
Both patches thus far have been a severe *****-slap to warriors and melee in general.
Odds are they'll simply change the tool-tip on the souls to better describe the use of said soul.
instead of riftblade - offensive soul it should read:
Riftblade-lolz scaling is for nubs
Beastmaster - lol pokemon4life
Paragon - lol just lol
Champion - respawn timers are great for flash-games
and vindicator -- wtf 5 points in a tier 2 skill to give me 25% chance to see the word immune pop up over an opponents head...but only if I am behind them.
Basically, let newbie warriors know what they are getting into.
Or Christ, just cut to the chase and change the name of the calling to "everyones *****" and then you'll be spot-on.
Had lvl 50 Cleric Caster/Healer/Tank, at that time Warrior was OP in the BGs, I spent a ton of time in the droop position looking down and/or way back with all shields up healing others. I got tired of Guardian and went Defiant to see the areas of the map and quests that I had been missing, which meant I got into the PvP side just in time to be steamrolled by the nerf. Prior to the patch, I was a force in a BG and could keep someone occupied, specialized in pounding healers to keep them healing themselves versus healing the Fang carrier in Black Garden.
Suddenly, I can't get through the healer shields and they can outheal my damage, I have now gone through four spec changes and nothing is curing the issue. Without a reliable snare of some sort the new kite is death on warriors, I mean now ranged mages and rogues who are two levels lower than me will hunt me down "why because now I am dead meat" with only one or two ways to keep them close and they have just as many to get away meanwhile they never stop doing damage to me.
Right now I am running Champion, Beast, and Paragon, I can destroy and stay alive doing rifts all by myself, but I get destroyed while in BGs now. My tank spec is not as good as my Clerics spec was and that is really sad. Oh before someone starts in I was MT for end game guilds in WoW, I have seen the Litch King at my feet as well as having earned decent PvP gear. The issue seems to be not with how fast you earn favor but how fast you get rep to allow you to buy anything a chicken or egg/Catch 22 for those who didnt start out doing a 48 hr sprint when the game came out. However with a lvl 34 warrior being in a BG is just ugly.

You fail to acknowledge that as a melee class, you have to be in the thick of it. That's why we need pocket healers more. That's why our survivability is way lower than it should be. We don't have a pyromancer, inquisitor or marksman spec.
Yeah, anyone getting FF'd will die without healing, but warrior is the only calling that can't heal and does not have a real range spec. Open your eyes dude.
