    warriors takeing to much damage

    I have heard alot of complaints of warriors taking to much damage and after prot warrior tanking in a crap load of raids i agree. Im deffinatly speced survivabilty and geared and gemmed that way to and still find my self takeing more damage then other tank classes in end game raids. after alot of looking into it and talking to alot of other tanks of all classes ive come to the conclusion it isnt our spec our gear or are set up it blizzard. they have given all other tanks more of what is needed for survival and continue to do so, not to mention we do 50% less dps then all other tanks. warriors are ment to be main tanks as well as druids who are given extra armor extra life the same cool downs as warriors and everything is speced for them so its not taken away by the 20% reduced dodge in icc yes its true to thous who didnt know this all ready druids do not lose 20% dodge in icc. they have decided to make the shield better for palidans then warriors and give them argent bs crusader and to top it off they give us dk tier gear and tell us to like it. forget the broken shield block stack dodge and parry so we can take away 60% of ur dodge in icc. pallys with 5k gs have better survivabilty then my 5737 gs warrior who set up totaly for survivabilty. how the hell dose the druid get more health and armor then me hello im a druid i wear leather but when i transform into bear form i have better then plate armor. the dk laughs at magic damage healz him self and dose 1500 more dps then us and has alot better panic bottons then a warrior and dont be surprised the dk tank is getting alot more help in the next patch.. blizzard get off ur butt and fix the warrior who clearly should be the best single target boss tank in the game but were not thanks blizzard

    You've reached the wrong conclusion. Spending some quality time on this site should fix your erronous conclusions

    My main tank is my warrior, the healers I run have told me that I am one of the easiest tanks to heal, easiest in my Guild for certain. I do not use a 'high survival' spec, I use the defacto EJ spec with decent gearing choices. My biggest rule is that Armor is your friend, never underestimate what a difference it makes in smoothing your damage intake.

    If I were asking blizzard for anything as a warrior tank it would be more ways to generate AOE threat. I don't have an issue with damage I take.

    Please do yourself a favor and research the other classes you are comparing your toon to. I'd also love to see an armory link of your "speced survivabilty and geared and gemmed that way to" warrior. My guess is that we won't see you back in this thread before it's locked.

    EDIT

    at least he used his toon name as his tankspot username: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...nfallen+heroes

    No, that's not a "max survivability" spec.

    This is funny. I have a warrior tank as my main and a holy priest as an alt, and I cringe when a dk is tanking because they are tougher to heal. Druids in bear form are pretty easy and pallys are okay, depending on the player, but warrior tanks are close to, if not the easiest to keep alive. Sure, the other classes have certain pluses, but they also have certain minuses. I'll take a good warrior tank over any dk or druid any day.
    Always stay behind your tank and in front of your healer.

    This thread has it all:

    - Druids do not suffer from Chill of the Throne.....
    - 50% less DPS than other Tanks......
    - Warriors and Druids are meant to be the main tanks.....
    - Something about taking away 60% of your dodge in ICC...

    And the icing on the cake some Gear Score references!

    I normally don't get down on people, but this is quite possibly the most uninformed post I have ever read on tankspot.
    There is something so appealing about backhanding someone across the face with a shield.

    Indeed! A variation to the "Every time Luke Skywalker complains" drinking game! "This is impossible!"
