    Warrs are still much better than mages and rogues, if not clerics. That's not an opinion, that's a fact. The butthurt p2 wars who cry about a nerf have no place in this world.

    Bad Warriors are a nerf, and good Warriors are still good.
    Even free cost too much now

    Warrior always will be (or at least should be) top melee dps - obviously with a pocket healer in a place like scion warriors will top kills and likely top damage (unless there's a giant aoefest on the bridge throughout the entire game)

    Only bad wars were nerfed to the ground.

    Propably too busy designing their next raid dungeon. They never do a single test concerning pvp balance. The only reason they nerfed parachamps was because of some dozen hundreds pages of complains on the forums.

    Pure PvE game.

    Congrats on your astute observations, not even realizing that the warrior in the screenshot is indeed the OP himself.

    It is definitely a trip to see Warrior A complaining about the "nerfs" in the same WF where Warrior B is rock 'n rolling...

    That guy had crazy pocket heals, Warriors with unending pocket heals CAN do that, most other dps classes can do almost as well with the same amount of heals.

    Warriors have some good dps builds left, but they all involve one soul, Riftblade. Other classes have had the same problem after Trion nerfed one of their main components with a half-assed jackhammer. In this case it was our physical dps that took a massive 30%+ cut and now crits 1k Valor targets for about 600 damage on our best attacks.

    So sorry guys, until Trion figures out how to properly bring our damage in line your going to be seeing more and more rfitblades teleporting around and lighting people on fire, and it's going to seem overpowered because were all going to be running Riftblade builds in order to stay competitive


    Short answer

    Riftblade: Powerful

    Other Warrior DPS souls: Sub-par

    He did 60k of self healing, he's like an extra cleric healing, haha. I guess blood thirsty?

    As for wars, far as I could tell para/champ got the downgrade (didn't seem big but I noticed a change in a high para build) but Champ/+ is still great (barely got touched). Plus LW can be on any build (and should be on every war PvP build).

    No idea on what next patch will bring and gear/cooldowns also make it very hard to tell who has what edge over whom. But a geared war is a quick death unless I have most to all cooldowns available.
