|Skill Changes (Warrior)|
Let me just start off saying for a class that is suppose to be the main tank, having skill that block is somewhat pointless. it's just going to break aggro and send them monster to your backline. Before Shadowform there was Obsidian Flesh tank, high armour and no blocking, maybe wary stance or Bonetti's stance for energy.
Second i would also like to say that blocking itself is a powerful effect, not much use for a tank, but easily abused for caster classes. Blocking shouldn't be an easy think to do, which most blocking skills in tactic are. but the short recharge makes them easily abuse for healer to reduce the pressure from them
I think warriors need a better option to reduce damage and perform as a tank, but still be viable to other class for self defense.
I've change the blocking skill into skill that help reduce damage. either copying something you would see in a monk skill or simple damage reduction.
With the shouts, they were nerf because of abuse from the paragon. With these changes, this would give back the original function, but with the downside of disabling your other shout and chants, think it as you shout something and in a moment to catch your breath
Finally with the change to the Riposte moves and the two elite are to keep in line with damage reduction with a more offensive build in mind.
