And you aren't a special snowflake either.In either case.. are we rogues? Are we mages? Are we clerics?
No we are not.
ST and AoE can be good, they can't both be excellent however, and that is what you seems to want. Champs currently on PTS have AoE on par with SC and Cab. You also want them to have ST on par with BS, Pyro, and Inquisitor. So you want Excellent AoE and Excellent ST.And if you're paying attention to the things I'm actually saying, then you'd know what I'm arguing against is the arguments people use for why ST and AoE DPS can't both be good in one spec... all of which, so far, are flawed arguments.
Nobody cares if you top ST DPS spec has better AoE than para. They care if it as as good of AoE as Champ, SC, Cab, and Sab. The later three of which sacrifice significantly amounts of competitive ST in order to have competitive AoE. All three are in the range of 70-40% of max ST DPS for their class. You want champ to be able to do 100% ST and 100% AoE. Which is against the trend.We need a 2H dps spec that is on par with DW, and vice versa.
If 51 Champ is tied with DW para, people point to champ's AoE and say it isn't fair.
If 51 RB 2h was tied with DW para, it still has better aoe than DW para.
If 51 BM 2h was tied with DW para, it still has better aoe than DW para.
You seem to think that AoE isn't valuable. You can always lobby for champ to be put down to BS levels of AoE, utility, and viability, but I'm not sure you would like the result.Champ is the only tree that is 2H viable that brings NOTHING ELSE to the table except for AoE. It has the least utility, lowest mobility and 0 rdps.
Both RB and BM balance better than champ.There is no soul that balances better for 2h st dps than Champ and ensures that warriors use most of their souls.
