    I've never seen the reason behind two abilities that basically waste your attack points. Every time I play my warrior these abilities seem like arbitrary finishers.

    Okay, so you don't want to be taken seriously. That's fine.

    PS, get rid of warriors. Previous sentence says it all.

    i doubt you understand how shifting blades/arc work. i'd suggest reading the tooltip and trying it out.

    They do a % dmg based on your next 3 abilities use. Usualy its followed by Tranq - RW-RH in a Paragon anyway

    Unless they fixed it, difficult to test unless u get someone with a perfect shield that u can proc off of. All dmg is lost from these procs because u actually do 0 damage to your target. what i mean is, if your reaping harvest hit target for 8k and shield on target was 8k. u technically do 0 damage to the target. so Shifting blades is reading you did 0 damage to ur target and therefor the proc from it does 0%. Arc works the same way Procs off CP/DP and Delayed pulse or skyfall depending where u are in your rotation.(As i said, i am not sure if this is fixed but i doubt it since its been doing it since i can remember)

    they are basically pointless. its OGCD so obviously a DPS gain in total, but frustrating when u don't crit during it. Id be happy with a 15 second cooldown OGCD flat dmg ability, or even an on GCD ability to fit into the rotation rather then those abilities.

    You're complaining about PvP balance. These skills are not changed on purpose btw.

    Very rarely, i.e maelforge mini boss, but still people would make it through.
