Sorry but this thread was not about level 50 wars. The OP posted this thread as a leveling war in pvp.
You play from range and spam attacks all day long. Unless the other focus you often, you'll be top 3 in damage all the time and if you aren't an idiot that keeps attacking targets with huge damage reduction and healing, you'll actually kill people pretty quickly.

It's your choice to run around w/o heals, and without sufficient damage mitigation if you play pure Damage spec, so don't cry to others when you're face rolled and don't understand why.
Outside of pure healing clerics, warrior more than any other class option is dependent on a team to back them up. Warriors in groups are an asset not to be overlooked.
Far too many of these QQs come from within a vacuum, neglecting to look at the whole picture is the reason for your falure, not the perceived imbalances attributed to Trion.
Here is the WF I just got out of. You will notice that I received about the same healing as everyone else and half of it was actually my heals. I run all my WFs solo; no healers and no premades. I have no doubt things will change at 50 but this post wasn't about war pvp at 50 it was about war pvp while leveling.
I think the first sentence is pretty clear.DPS builds -meaning non tanking souls- are pure garbage PvP wise as I level.
RB/pali/vk is insane with ravenous strength + pali shield buff + aggressive block. I'm not sure what the block% ends up being but it feels borderline OP vs another warrior or rogue.
And I still dont get why people say RB has bad burst. champ uses attack points as their own attacks. RB uses attack points as burst ON NEXT ATTACK. So attack point dumps are BURST + ABILITY, which with crits is on par with champ crits. Not to mention you can maintain pressure and burst from range, whereas if a champ gets put just 1m out of meleee range they lose MASSSIVE dps.
I have absolutely zero problem killing any class except uber (r6) outlast clerics which you can't killl with a champ either.
There is no "leg humping either lol" I can kill basically any class (except high rank clerics) with one rotation of spears, pali stun, and then one more AP dump before they even have a chance to react.
This is the RB/VK/Pali build I run
I have knocked VK before on the grounds of the dispell not being that great, but I have actually came to like it due to the block increase ravenous strength adds. That combined with martial shield, you can basically build up attack points doing nothing lol, it's great, and allows for non-stop AP dumps. Not to mention 2 interrupts (shield bash and earth burst) compared to champ only having one assuming the target is immune to cc.
51/rb/pali/para build i also use:
Champs rely on snares and stuns to maintain constant, therefore regardless of their burst have lost a lot of their effectiveness in 1.2 imo. Even if you have 50% healing debuff, doesn't matter if you can't maintain pressure, which is why I don't even miss the debuff.

Trion definitely needs to look into this because one selling point of this game was the soul system and if a certain selection of souls are going to be head-and-shoulders worse than the others, well, that goes against the diverse model the soul system seeks to mold itself after.
Definitely not the greatest though - survivability is pretty low, and bursting people down is a 50/50 gamble.
In my experience, I found that I won some, and lost some.
I made myself useful earlier when I went into port scion. PvE tank spec, grabbed a sourcestone and ran around church/bridge without turning it in for about 10 minutes. I didn't really do anything but still got high favor due to reaver AOEs and the fact that I had 0 deaths, lol.
