    well, lets say that in PvP it is probably the most easily mitigated damage.

    The reason you have 4 souls is to provide negative feedback on all 4 at once, rather than focusing an educated feedback on 1.

    Well I happen to like using two handers on my warrior, the only problem is riftblade doesn't do much for two hander champs, not much at all really. Got any builds that will make that not suck?

    Not intimately familiar with warriors. But as I understand it Riftblade is much more versatile at pvp atm.

    If you won't give up your 2h spec you may be stuck here sir.

    So it would seem, I was hoping someone could come along and show my theres a way to do it. Personally I've tried so many builds and found them all lackluster. Probably burnt 20+ Platinum on this purpose alone these last couple weeks.

    That or target low armor people and just avoid shields/plate. Can still be fairly effective ;)

    Yes physical damage is gimped. Unless you have godly gear you'll be swinging that two-hander like it's a fly swatter. It's lame, really lame. Even softies (mages primarily) sit there and laugh if you're mostly physical specced damage. Then again, that's probably why I haven't logged onto the game in about three days. Sick of being forced to conform just to compete in pvp. Out of all the souls available for warrior (or rogue for that matter) one, which is non-physical damage, is the soul you see the most. Riftblade and Nightblade. Sad really.
    It's dangerous to try and reason with delusional people.

    With Valor coming in hard and maybe resistance gear/runes you may see spell damage taking a nice hit soon too. But physical damage is always a hassle to work around.

    Thats what Ive been doing. Last night I went through port scions switching targets that I could Bladefury crit on over 700 damage. I may have found one guy, but for the rest of the game I was useless, I basically had to wait for someone to come by and help me kill my targets. I got the rank 4 2H Weapon btw, doesn't really do jack.

    Unless they boost Physical damage with Valor, Champ builds in PvP are going to be a thing of the past. At that point I'll have some choices to make
