The Warrior is a new class for me. I still have a lot to learn and I think that a lot of information is missing in current discussions and the impact that the latest balance patch had on the different specs. Unfortunately, I haven't found a thorough analysis of the current meta on the Warrior, as I imagine that things are still evolving, from seasoned players.
So I've been playing Support Spb (build on metabattle) for about two weeks now, geared in cleric's exotics and minstrel's asc. trinkets. So I run around doing some OK heals, keeping Might up, breaking a few enchantments, surviving basically everything with the help of F2, and dealing do damage whatsoever.
Hammer seems like a joke. I would gladly trade some of the CC (5 skills, really?) for damage, because it's not doing any! Fierce Blow is supposed to be a big hitter, but the most I get out of Crits is 900. Also, with all the stability buffs around, skills 3-4-5 end up missing completely (invuln.), even with Break Enchantments cast just before. With a 25 second cooldown and a 1 second wind-up, Backbreaker seems to land maybe once every 20 attempts. Earthshaker and Staggering Blow also seem very flawed.
The tradeoff for the absence of damage is that I can give some heals, boons and rip enchantments while surviving through pretty much everything but a coordinated nuke. I sometimes find myself standing in the middle of my dead group, giving boons to nobody but myself, until they eventually put me out of my misery. I feel like I have too many tools to help me survive this long.
So my question is: Is this what a Warrior should be doing? I'm kind of having fun doing it, but it seems broken in that the spec seems highly situational, and that I'm rolling the dice every time I try to use my weapons offensively. Lower the survivability and give back some damage, maybe? Being a support obviously means having limited damage, but I feel like a two-handed Hammer should have some weight to it. I know for sure that I'm doing many things wrong, so I want to improve and understand things better. What are your thoughts?
