MoP = Death of Warrior Stances? Discuss
Just wondering what peoples thoughts on this are, ever expansion stances for a warrior have become less and less important, since WoTLK all but those minmaxing PvErs would stay in one stance depending on their role Tanks needing Battle Stance to Shattering Throw, Arms Warriors going Berserker Stance for Execute (which we still do I think) and Fury Warriors going Battle Stance to rend dance (WoTLK)
This made stances exclusive really only to PvP, constantly having to switch for the given situation. Killing Intercept on Arms warriors and making Recklessness available outside of Berserker Stance allowed us to remove Zerker Stance from our bars entirely.
I haven't been following MoP as closely as I have most up coming expansions but it seems that stances are going to be just like a Death Knights Presences now. I know people say stances were an outdated mechanic but I've always loved stance dancing, it just made any encounter PvP or PvE that required feel more engaging and klutch. I always loved doing it when tanking Nightbane something a lot of Warriors couldn't do (for some reason..)
Only beef I had with stances was the rage penalty which I never found needed. I'm also not sure how i'm going to deal with my keybinds since a lot of my binds are exclusive to the stance I'm currently in.
I'm pretty sure the Warrior PvP community isn't too happy about this and for good reason since Cataclysm's changes drastically lowered the Warriors skill-cap, something that is generally low to begin with since Warriors have among the easiest roles in Arena. Even Spell Reflect losing it's shield requirement saddens me.
