    Default 0 viable melee dps now.

    warrior is dead. i think its hilarious that the 7.5k hp chloro/lock mages that heal themselves are now the top dps in Wfs.

    Chloro/lock has always been top dps in wfs for one reason: nature's fury. With enough gear, and the warlock damage mods, this spell hits for about 1.5k on four targets every 8 seconds. Thing is: it chains from one to the next with a fairly noticeable delay, so it's not the same thing as a cabbie or a stormcaller nailing everyone at once. It's also pure aoe damage, which means it's not going to function very well as targeted threat removal - which is still the name of the game in competitive pvp.

    Warriors can still top charts, but they've always done it with most single-target dps. That's why, even when they don't top damage, they're always crushing KBs. Warrior damage, unlike a lot of the aoe "fluff", really matters.

    warriors are still killing whoever they target.

    as said above, no fluff involved. if you have a warrior on you, you're as good as dead in most situations

    The only warriors who think it's dead are the bad ones.

    if you are dieing to a warrior now you are bad. My rank 7 took easily a 45% damage nerf. Im hitting rank 6 mages for 800 with my hardest hitting finisher. Devouring shadows now hits me harder as an AOE than any single target ability i can use against a chlor lock.

    i dont have a single ability that can hit a rank 6 chloro lock for 1.5k after this nerf. These guys are tossing AOEs that hit that hard while healing themselves.

    Don't worry sunshine, sooner or latter people will discover Nightblade Rogues for group PvP. When that happens you can kiss all those silly lock/chloro bye bye...

    Its not even funny how hard a Nightblade owns a lock/chloro, perfect paper-scissors scenario.

    dont care about 1v1 that relies on a nightblade popping an hour and a halfs worth of CDs to win.

    Perhaps you know how mages felt when Trion nerfed Cinder Burst and Fulminate, and put Inferno on the GCD in one great movement of soul destruction.

    Or you're just trolling and/or bad.

    They are on 2min CD, if you have 2min CD's you know they are allways up..

    AND..

    Wait for it...

    The NB will kill that silly lock/chloro while being focused by the other team lol

    All his team mates need to do is just look at the lock/chloro while the NB is on him and its bye bye locki

    chloro/lock is a good spec, however we have steady dps. think about this. If you are in a raid, your war does 2k dps, however in a wf this dps is much less for many reasons. A chloro/lock does low dps, however it is consistent dps and so on the charts at the end of a match it appears that the chloro/lock did great dmg. Most of this dmg is not important though and had little effect on the match. The important thing was the healing. If you do not understand this you are ignorant and/or stupid.
