    Please explain why without once mentioning that "other games do it that way". And don't like ranged souls? Don't use them. There's still all those melee tanking souls, dps souls, and that support soul.

    A little too late for that isn't it? Tell me what good hybrids still exist in the warrior soul tree?

    51temp/25 reaver does passable dps
    54para/22champ also passable
    48bm/28para is pretty damn useful when you need that raid deeps

    The first is getting a pretty big boost with the change to Fester in Reaver. There are hybrids that can even be played in a raid environment, so warrior isn't as bad at hybridizing as people make it out to be (clerics have the worst hybridization, people just ignore it because inquisitor is flat out broken right now and it's the only thing clerics are playing).

    Yes, should have rephrased it. Guess I just rewrote what I sent to the warrior dev in private 6 months ago when I also expressed my concerns about the changes being proposed to warlord at that time.


    "Please stop killing what few is left of warrior hybrids"

    Thanks

    Yes, I tried it. I call it the more dots spec. I don't think it;s better than 28 para though.

    Don't expect much from the Hybrids. Top DPS will remain 61 Paragon, 61 Tempest and 61 Champion. Hybrids don't get better (or even equal) DPS or better utility, but sometimes can provide an alternative DPS rotation. For example, 51TP/25RV isn't better DPS than 61 Tempest, but it does provide a better rotation that doesn't have to deal with the silliness known as Wavelength.

    Any high DPS Hybrid will get nerfed, it's just a matter of time. On my rogue I find 38NB/38SIN to be far better spec rotation wise than either 61 NB or 61 SIN, but it will get nerfed soon, the only question is how big or small the nerf bat will be.

    I wouldn't say dead because they were never really alive to begin with.

    RB/VK, Tempagon, and Warpest are hybrids that are dead. With both souls of the hybrid completely gutted and changed to require high point investments on both ends to prevent any further hybridization. Yes, they were all completely broken, but now there is no hope for hybridization between them. I kind of miss having a spec that didn't rely on how often you crit during your 1m CD.

    I think we are all in agreement on that.

    Few more changes which are now live on PTS.

    • Fixed Shadow Strike so it now works correctly.
    • Added Rancid Cleave to the abilities affected by Shadow Strike.
    • Lowered bonus damage added by Shadow Strike from 33% to 25% and capped out the max contributing Reaver DoTs to 3.
    • Removed the default damage bonus for Reaver DoTs on Rancid Cleave.

    if the DoT contribution is capped, can we remove the limit of only reaver DoTs applying?
    I'd like to see the potential for hybrids opened up, rather than shut out.

    I'd also once again like to ask you to reconsider the shadow warp change. a targetable teleport is so much more fun than straight directional one (particularly as it can allow you to go up things to a target, something the changed shadow warp cant do.
