    Default Question: Why even roll a Warrior after Beta6 Changes

    Here is the arguement:

    With a rogue you can:

    1) TANK
    2) Melee DPS
    3) Go Stealth
    4) Ranged DPS
    5) Bard for healing
    6) Have a pet

    With a warrior you can:

    1) TANK
    2) Melee DPS
    3) Have Pet

    There is the option for rift blade and ranged dps but it is no where near a marksman and with the changes in this last beta the melee dps will be lackluster compared to other classes. So the question is why even pick a warrior????? With the changes to the class in beta6 the warrior souls have no synergy and the ablity to make unique builds is gone.

    Because I think the class is fun, and it suits my PVP playstyle? Seems like a pretty good reason to me.

    LOL. Reason enough but for a player who wants to try a variety of things the devs made warriors with few options.

    As a rogue tank you have:

    physical mitigation and high threat.

    tell me, good sir, what a rogue tank has against spells.
    It is also my opinion that a rogue tank will not scale very well with level, leaving them at the off-tank slot for end-game raids rather than a main tank.

    Warriors look like theyre gonna be ballin tanks.

    but, they also look to be good for melee dps and pvp, since the changes to Champion make their 2H dmg ridiculously high.

    Rogues manliness level = 3/10
    Warriors manliness level = 11/10

    Your move

    you can make as many characters as you want, up to 10 i believe.

    for those that wish to try a variety of things, their problem is solved.

    The rogue also gets more pets... the warrior only gets 1.

    Not 10, only 6.
    Don't waste your time replying to me directly in a post.

    These forums are garbage and no threads can be subscribed to properly since 2010.

    Some people like rolling alts and sucking at everything end game. What about the players who like to work one class to max gear and abilities. Is it a sorry "You were dumb enough to roll a warrior. if you wanted to tank should have rolled riftstalker or if you wanted to melee dps should have rolled rogue".

    I am telling you guys... I have a bad feeling about where this game is going considering the changes in this beta.

    As a warrior you can totally **** with spell casters (VK is awesome)
    You can AoE-leech tank/dps hybrid.
    You can hit stuff with a big stick.

    A warrior played properly at the moment beats the melee rogue in terms of dps and survivability in my experience so if you wanna go melee go warrior.

    I think you're getting far too worked up over this. Trion isn't a bunch of slobbering ******s who happen to know how to code. If Warriors end up in a horrifyingly awful situation (they're not right now) then I'm sure they will take action to fix it. They're not going to completely alienate an entire calling.

    Best tank = warrior

    optional tank = rouge, cleric and mage (dont laugh, its doable with the ele pets!)

    best twohander = warrior

    best magekiller = warrior

    the calling wich Chuck Norris would choose = warrior

    should i continue?

    Instead of trying to convince others why you feel warrior will fail, why not play the game, and try different builds with warrior? If you feel so poorly about it, then don't role one. Let those who enjoy the class play it. This is still beta, who is to say new changes wont come from Beta 6 data they get?

    Even after the game goes live, there will be plenty of revisions as they continue to work on balance and synergies.
