Why should DW be 300 dps above any 2 hander builds especially in a game where st dps is all people care about and whatever spec is doing the best st dps people will use regardless of aoe. Trion might as well scrap 2 handers all together cause i guarantee you if DW stays above 2hander in st dps you wont see any warriors with 2 handers. How about just making them both viable in st dps instead of gimping the other i mean with DW you already get tons of mobility and you dont have to worry about disconnects.
Either this or make both equal, wich is just to much work and in the end it's impossible to make them within 50-100 dps of eachother when it comes to both AoE and ST.
That would be in an ideal world.
Thanks to Val's RW spec, having both 2H and 1Hs were necessary to max DPS, both in AoE and ST.
I suppose that getting those 2H for AoEing will be too far deep in the instance to be competitive with mages or rogues.
But this is all supposition and I would not be surprised that it would eventually be that way.
That's just what i've been thinking. Looks like 2h are out of the picture once again. IMO ST is the thing that matters. Using 2h only for trash or very heavy add fights makes me sadWhy should DW be 300 dps above any 2 hander builds especially in a game where st dps is all people care about and whatever spec is doing the best st dps people will use regardless of aoe.

While other classes may be jealous of a warriors ability to do both aoe and st in one spec, they are also capable of many things that we are not, so it is not possible to do an apples to apples comparison with them to us. If they want us to be just like them, by all means, give us ranged dps specs, heals, and support souls, otherwise each class has their own little corner on different things.
As i recall the 41RB 2h spec is the leading one when talking about 2handed builds atm. 41RB also has range with spears and bursts.

Suggestion: make POTH+POTR+POTW+POTT melee req abilities and keep the rest as it is. Leave the range abilitites in RB tree. Or make them have same dmg in melee and when used in ranged reduce the dmg significant.
This would make everyone happy I guess..?
Look, lets be honest here. It's not just 2h that people want to have as the best ST spec, it's Champion. And it's understandable, too: Champion is the iconic warrior soul, so that's what many warriors want to play.
The trouble is that Champion is also the soul with the best AoE potential and Trion's made it pretty clear they want to separate the best ST and the best AoE.
Personally - as someone who strongly prefers to DW - I have zero problems with Champion being ahead of DW during AoE fights, so long as DW ST isn't subpar. But rogues, clerics and mages aren't going to be fine with one spec having it all. There will be no end of QQ, and unless the devs take the stand expressed by someone a few pages ago - that it's OK for warriors to have the best ST and the best AoE in a single spec because we're severely limited in options comparing to other classes - Champion is going to remain behind other souls on ST no matter how much the warriors don't like it.

I think the trade off of AoE vs mobility/ranged (2h vs DW) is a fair one. The only problem is that the rest of the callings don't care about those nuances. If one of our specs has both the best AoE and and the best ST the QQ storm will make sure it doesn't last (and by 'the best' I mean 'compatible with other callings'). I have no idea how the devs will resolve that while keeping the warrior community happy.
And lets be honest, there will be no end to the rogue QQ no matter what. It's what they do best.
Either way, at the end of the day it's kind of irrelevant. The bottom line is that unless Champion AoE capabilities are neutered I really don't see Champion ST being made compatible with the rest. I sincerely hope I am wrong but it's unlikely given the direction the devs seem to want to take.
