The Warrior Changes in Warlords of Draenor

Undead Warrior Warlords BetaThe official release date for Warlords of Draenor (WoD) was Nov. 13, 2014. No there 6.1 patch has landed and a few additional changes were made.

The big change, as far as Warriors as concerned, is just the ten levels and the level 100 talents. Warrior tanks will lose their Vengeance, but will get a replacement, so should be fine. Ah yeah, lots of abilities are going away or being consolidated.

Arms Warriors, with their new Mastery, should actually feel more like Arms Warriors. Ditto Fury and Prot.

So are the changes good? Leave a comment and state your piece.

A Warrior Proving Grounds Guide – Raging to the Gold

Arms and Fury Warriors will both be able to handle the Proving grounds with little, if any, change in techniques or gear. Stats, gems, etc. willbe the same for both specs.

As you may know, one of the requirements for LFR (Looking for Raid) and for random heroics in the Warlords of Draenor expansion will be a Silver Achievement in the Proving Grounds. One might guess that the reason for this is all the complaining about “the bads” in both of those groups. Anothing might be the “insta boost to 90” system that WoW has implemented, which people feel will flood the world with boobs who have not the slightest idea of how to play their characters.

So, with that in mind, I’m putting up a series of guides on how to get that silver achievement (and higher level achievements) in the Proving Grounds. Some classes and specs will find it easier than others, but everyone should be able to do it.

The Proving Grounds have three areas of expertise:

  • DPS/Damage – where you, all by yourself, have to destroy all opposition
  • Healing – where you and your team work together to destroy all opposition. Your team is, ahem, not necessarily highly skilled.
  • Tanking – You tank and burn down all opposition. You will have a healer who you have to keep alive.

After Silver you can go onto the Gold achievment and then Endless. This is where you fight wave after wave until you get bored of the whole thing. Gold has ten waves, ending with a boss type Sha. Silver has eight, with no major boss.
