The peace and harmony update made me jump for joy.--IkimonoI know my ParagonsParagon-icon-small 22:41, 11 December 2008 (EST)
Very unique I like it.(Timcago 00:11, 12 December 2008 (EST))
one thing after looking at it (thought i saw a different skill first), Hammer Bash removes all your adrenaline, so the only chance you're going to get to use "On Your Knees!" is when you KD with Enraged. Other than that it looks good.--IkimonoI know my ParagonsParagon-icon-small 09:10, 12 December 2008 (EST)
  • Use "OYK!" after you KD the foe with Enraged Smash
  • Spam Hammer Bash

wut? So bstrike someone with enraged, hit OYK and lose all the adrenaline you gained and somehow manage to be able to spam hammer bash? - Panic sig5 09:33, 12 December 2008 (EST)

You'd be better with distracting strike to catch skills when they stand up since you don't have the benefit of Daze. - Panic sig5 09:49, 12 December 2008 (EST)
yea, that looks better. Or you could bring "None Shall Pass!" for the Monty Python reference and an extra KD.--IkimonoI know my ParagonsParagon-icon-small 10:01, 12 December 2008 (EST)
Or you could bring something that isn't a 10e, 45s recharge bull's strike instead. Like bull's strike. - Panic sig5 10:55, 12 December 2008 (EST)
What do you reccomend to do then? You can drop hammer bash and still take oyk, or drop oyk? I would have to go with that one.... Frenzy+Nat Stride then? lol.... ~~     Frvwfr2     talk    contribs    admin   11:25, 12 December 2008 (EST)
I gave you recommendations. dstrike, prot strike, and bull's are probably your only choices there. - Panic sig5 11:35, 12 December 2008 (EST)

Look mate, i can't KD with that elite because they stop always xD.--ValeV 11:16, 12 December 2008 (EST)

And yet every warrior in PvP manages to hit their Bull's strikes. - Panic sig5 11:35, 12 December 2008 (EST)
LOL @ You. Hitting bull's strike is by far the most serious thing that a warrior should be good at; and it is far from easy, ofcourse becoming harder and harder against better players. —ǘŋƐxɩsƫ 15:13, 13 December 2008 (EST)
That's what I was thinking, if the target doesn't kite you can only KD with Hammer Bash, which means you lose your adrenaline and can't use OYK to recharge your stances. However, kiting is usually preferable to standing still and getting hammered with melee and ele DoTAoE. Anyhow Enraged Smash = adrenaline machine = Hammer Bash often enough to make this viable. Should be fun to test.--Spoon 11:53, 12 December 2008 (EST)
Question - Hows the timing if you Enraged->Prot Strike->HBash? How long are they up inbetween? ~~     Frvwfr2     talk    contribs    admin   12:05, 12 December 2008 (EST)

Hammer Bash+Enraged is kind of redundant. If your target doesn't kite, better for you. Knocking down a standing target mostly matters in a spike situation, and you don't use R/Ws in spike teams. Asdfg 13:34, 12 December 2008 (EST)

^What he said. There's already a 5 second recharge though :\ + hammer bash. Imo, if you hit with Enraged the first time, you've got a second KD to punish them, and by that time Enraged is recharged, then they stand up > Move > KD, and the wildebeest eat the grass. if you catch my drift.--IkimonoI know my ParagonsParagon-icon-small 05:01, 13 December 2008 (EST)

At a guess, I'd say Flail is for when you catch someone with Enraged and Lightning Reflexes is down. Kabu To 11:58, 13 December 2008 (EST)

This actually looks rather good; however, drop flail as it's trash on the current bar. Expertise makes you spam that precious prot strike so you actually still have damage. —ǘŋƐxɩsƫ 15:10, 13 December 2008 (EST)

I suppose that too is an aswell droppable stance. I'm happy when we're down to two of em.--Chaos Messenger 15:17, 13 December 2008 (EST)

I saw this coming a mile away when I first saw the changes. This is going to be everywhere soon. =.= Looks pretty good as is. Add poison for increased levels of epic IMO KaHasuken

A variant could be to drop sprint and LR for tigers fury and run as one (note that it doesnt need a pet). With 8+1 in BM this would allow you to keep up an IAS for 90% of the time, and have a longer lasting speed boost. Although this would lower you defence without a blocking stance.

Actually, it only makes energy better. If you replace Sprint w/ it I mean. Cuz Sprint is unaffected by Exp, and there are no 10e skills, which is the only reason to take 14, but NS is. ~~     Frvwfr2     talk    contribs    admin   22:59, 13 December 2008 (EST)
Well i thought the spread would be 12, 10, 8 or 12, 9, 9.--Relyk chtistmas2ChristmasRelyk 23:18, 13 December 2008 (EST)

You do realize that Hammer bash causes you to lose all adren. Therefore you can't activate "On your knees!" To recharge your stances? Just pointin that out

Ah forgive me. I didn't check to see if Enraged smashed got changed.

Psst, Enraged Smash costs energy and not adrenaline and can be used to fuel OYK but I dislike that. Fix the stances imo --Chaos Messenger 14:36, 15 December 2008 (EST)

OYK off the mainbar.. It's only useable if you get a KD with Enraged. I'd prefer Storm Chaser as the IMS. It lasts a while even with only a few points, and you can afford taking 1 off expertise, it doesn't affect skill costs. ---Chaos- 13:16, 8 February 2009 (EST)

The damage from this bar is simply put just too low, if they stand still you really have no +dmg attack and your KD doesn't even recharge any faster than the warrior version who gets more adrenaline from enraged. The only bonus I can see is that this can block, but is that worth the massive amount of damage lost by giving up strength and hammer mastery points?I heal if you shut it 03:39, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Then you're doing it wrong. E-smash + prot strike + hit = 6a. KD every 4 - 6 seconds if the target stands still, big damage + 2 KDs if target moves. Spam e-smash and prot strike. Hammer bars also don't have much +dmg attacks. Zyke-Sig 03:48, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
The thing is a War can do all this with higher hammer mastery and strength. The only difference is that the war also gets a thing called an IAS, which I guess is underrated. This can spam more often, but it just.... doesn't feel worth it.I heal if you shut it 21:02, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
