Azure The Heartless.3261 Posted April 15, 2021 Share Posted April 15, 2021 Bad take but unironic. Exaggeration in title. I'll take 20 seconds baseline.Warrior is intended to be melee oriented, or at the very least lends itself more to melee play. Its ranged options are slow and telegraphed, and getting up close with your opponent is more rewarding.Ranger is the opposite. its melee options are slow and telegraphed, and its ranged options are faster. Despite this, it has more options for mitigating in melee range (even though it performs best outside of it) than warrior (even though warrior's damage comes largely from entering and maintaining melee range.) Not only that, but matched up versus Daredevil (which already counters the class mechanically), shield is mechanically useless because it is up at a rate of almost half the uptime of swipe, which puts it on cooldown immediately when used. I should be able to block with a shield more often than I can block with offhand sword. Warrior should be directly behind Guardian in terms of the robustness of its shield option.
