    Default WoW: Cataclysm Warrior Info

    They have posted up the changes coming for Warriors:
    New Warrior Abilities

    Inner Rage (Level 81): Whenever the character reaches a full 100 Rage, he or she will gain a buff that causes attacks to consume 50% more Rage and do 15% more damage for a short amount of time. This is a passive ability so it won't need to be activated by the player. The goal for this ability is to provide a benefit for hitting max Rage instead of it feeling like a penalty. However, we also don't want warriors to feel like they're supposed to pool Rage and do nothing until they hit 100, so we'll be closely monitoring how this plays out during the beta testing, and making adjustments as needed.

    Gushing Wound (Level 83): This ability will apply a bleed effect to the target. If the target moves, the bleed gains an extra stack and refreshes its duration, up to a maximum of three stacks. The ability is currently planned to have no cooldown, cost 10 Rage, and have a 9-second duration. Gushing Wound is designed to be weaker than Rend with one stack, but better with three stacks, which will be reached when fighting a moving target.

    Heroic Leap (Level 85): This ability makes the character leap at their target and apply the Thunder Clap ability to all enemies in the area when they land. Heroic Leap will be usable in Battle Stance and shares a cooldown with Charge, but the Juggernaut and Warbringer talents will allow Heroic Leap to be used in any stance and possibly while in combat. The cooldown for this ability might be longer than the Charge ability, but it will also apply a stun effect so you can make sure the target will still be there when you land.

    Man does Gushing Wound shit all over rogues. Heroic Leap is a good change a charge in battle stance is nice.

    Battle Stance already has Charge.

    The Rogue preview is up and, holy shit, the only thing more surprising than the buffs they get is watching the stupid Rogue community cry because they didn't get fucking Godmode. The ability to redirect combo points, a self-heal, an ability that potentially gives them 50% damage reduction for 10 seconds or more, and deployable LOS that prevents them from being targetted... Rogues currently fight with Shaman for the best preview so far.

    Rogues needed something, the combo points was long overdue. More defense was a must also because of the higher HP longer fights, rogues are still easy to kite.

    Not really that much of a buff because it comes with the largest nerf in rogue history. Cheap shot will now share DR with KS. The defense boost of 6 seconds on a 2 min timer is weak.

    Only good thing is the smoke cloud. Rogue + shaman + hunter might be viable. RMP gets stronger with this.
