It's just and deserving. A 7-10k burst opportunity every 12 seconds was a bit too harsh when you've got another 2 damage moves available after the Charge - Heroic Strike - Mortal Strike.

I get 6-12k burst on dk pressing Scourge Strike twice but, clearly, problem is in warriors D:

So we should keep an overpowered talent because DKs are overpowered as well, right?

No, because Heroic strike is fun and relaxing. Specially so in PvP.

Compared to DKs and Rets because you had higher mobility and target uptime. Shittier damage and utility, but yeah, beats me. They're gonna nerf rogue burst and ret mobility as well this patch. Also lock burst and DK survivability/control. All slight changes, except Juggernaut and Overkill.

If you're gonna rage, add in buffing resto druid survivability.

Never found it overpowered, just annoying that you knew you where going to die at a certain % of HP but tahts true with most classes. My biggest bitch would have to be ret palas and the speed they can dump all their abilties, all they effectivley have to do is wait for CD its not like even mana is an issue. Also, chains of ice wouldn't be so bad if it went fast to slow, i.e. 20% to 90% speed reduction.

Yeah, all paladins moan they they arent Overpowered but I have one and they are just a joke to be honest, it dosen't have good gear and it ruins well geared players.

3.1.3
Juggernaut: This talent now also increases the cooldown on Charge by 5 seconds.
Sucks, but charge in combat is still awesome.

Some more waffle from Blizzard regarding the changes.



Juggernaut nerfed in Patch 3.1.3

The problem was that Arms warriors with Juggernaut still had Intercept. We think it's fine to use those back to back once, which is basically what this change will do. The problem we were having is a warrior could keep bouncing back and forth between a couple of targets, keeping them both stunned which incidentally also interrupted casting. The casters were just never getting a chance to get spells off. Their only recourse felt like crowd control, but of course caster CC is typically magic based and could be dispelled, while warrior stuns and snares are much harder to get out of.

Getting up on a caster quickly is awesome, which is why we created the talent. Using Charge in combat is cool and useful. Using Charge in combat constantly is pretty brutal to casters. We thought about just increasing the cooldown of Charge itself so that the talent didn't feel like it had a drawback (because we have certainly heard from warriors unhappy with the Titan's Grip penalty). However we felt that was an unfair nerf to the leveling warrior or the tank who use Charge regularly just to solve a PvP balance problem.

We knew that removing the in-combat charge from Juggernaut would totally kill the talent and the idea, which is why we didn't do it. That is what I meant by nerfing it into the ground, though apparently some players interpreted that as meaning barely getting nerfed at all.

We knew it would be a controversial change, which is why we wanted to go ahead and get it posted ahead of time. This patch is small so it won't go up on the PTR, yet we didn't want it to feel like a stealth nerf if it just went in one morning unannounced.
