    Default Why would anyone ever play a warrior?

    I'm just curious why anyone in their right mind would ever roll a warrior if they were as gimp as everyone else wants them to be? They are the lowest ranged dps in the game currently, so already are a liability for raid content that favors ranged. This is the pvp forum though so bearing that in mind, if a warrior can't stand up on the front lines who is supposed to? If they didn't have the best damage at melee range, why ever play a dps war?

    This isn't a troll post just asking what people think their role should be, other than tanking..

    lol what?

    Warriors are primary DPS in both raid and PvP. They are just not self sufficient as other classes and require a healer to baby sit them (in fact if you ask me they are a bit too self sufficient right now).
    Warriors rock **** bro. I don't even queue without a warrior.
    Sorry if you expected it to be a solo pwnmobile. Try mage or a rogue instead.

    Maybe you guys misunderstood. I'm not saying warriors are useless currently. I'm saying people seem to say "well they have plate so they should do no damage." I was asking the question to those who always want warrior damage nerfed, what do you think the class should be good for if not melee damage?

    They should be good at melee damage. They shouldn't be good at melee damage, range damage, CC and utility in the same package.

    The last two more so than the first two imo. I dont mind the damage, but their utility and cc are way too accessible for such a damage out put.

    "Why would anyone ever play a warrior? "

    Because sometimes, you want to write a book report or watch TV while PvPing, but still have the full potential of the class at the same time.

    Warrior are currently one of the best melee classes ingame in both pvp ane pve with hood gear. Im a r6 rogue (sin) almost rank 7 now with full r6 gear and 1080 valor. And still decent geared warriors can drop me with 3 gcds or in a few sec if they get the drop on me. High armor + High valor + amazing 2handed dps = Rift demigods. Even in pve they Do very Nice dps, in raids my guilds best dos is a warrior with more then 1300 dps single. Some warrior souls still needs a nerf.

    MM and mages are supposed to kite warrors and its a guaranteed kill or so warriors tell you - kiting is dead - whats the ability they have to teleport on to you- called something like bulls***t i think - melee and ranged elemental damage so only valor mitigates it - Trion fooked up big time with warriors but are too gutless to admit their mistake - and dont give that tired old response "but oh you have range" 35 metres turns into 0 in about 2 secs with the gap closers in this game

    Well, duh?

    I'm a warrior and Rogues (well, sins or marksmen) can kill me when they get the drop on me. That's how fighting works...

    LOL! Truth there be in this. Truth there be. Being totally destroyed in 3, maybe 4 hits (if you're lucky enough to waste a pot healing yourself before being cut in half) will make your eyes bug out.

    You're thinking of the few Warriors (myself included) who spec 26 RB for Riftwalk/Planar Blade. Riftwalk is the teleport-to-target + CC break and Planar Blade refreshes the cooldown on Riftwalk whenever we crit. The advantage is obvious, but the downside is that:

    a) Your spells/attacks have a longer range than our Riftwalk;
    b) anyone who is speccing 26 RB is giving up higher damage and/or more mitigation for the ability to break all CCs (except Fear, but that's a bug) and teleport to their target nearly at will;
    c) Can only Riftwalk to targets in front of us and;
    d) Since we (generally) won't spec into any other CC breaks, you can root/snare/stun/stormshackle/whatever us from just out of range and we're completely f*cked. (assuming, of course, a 1v1 situation where we cant just Riftwalk to someone else to break the CC)

    Highlighted the most important one there. If you've got a 26RB CC'd and are standing behind them, they're your b*tch.
