It’s already been stated an ungodly amount of times why blade dance will not work in its current state. It absolutely does not work with Venthyr, regardless of tuning.
And just because something has always been doesn’t mean it always needs to be. It doesn’t have to press a certain build. We’ve never had this many systems that have impacts on builds in any WoW experience to date. Legendaries, Covenants, soulbinds, conduits, and Domination sockets (if they aren’t straight up removed which they should be) all contribute to let the player have a numerous amount of choices. It seems weird to give us free reign over which covenant that we can choose then instantly bring a set in that pigeonholes us into one build/covenant.
I do also want to point out that this is in the warrior forum, 33 posts in. Class Set Feedback: Warrior - #33 by Kaivax
Things can change.
We’re not necessarily favoring a Venthyr based set - Eye beam is one of the couple shared abilities that could be used between all builds currently. That, and it’s very clearly our top performing single target spec. It’s likely correct that it would push a venthyr/cycle build a bit harder, but it wouldnt be basically dead for Night Fae.
My personal suggestion was a throw glaive set as a neutral ground - something that isn’t being used but can be used by each build. It would even potentially open up other legendaries to use. Outside of TG, you have Immolation aura, Chaos Strike, Eye Beam, and Fel rush. If we remove eye beam as that favors Venthyr, we still have 4ish workable alternatives that should make everyone happy.
And to the people offering suggested changes to still utilize blade dance – Why are we even still offering suggestions based on the “every 5th cast” piece? Do we not agree that it feels terrible and should be thrown out? At best it offers a slight increase every 25 seconds. at worst you may not get a proc for minutes at a time, effectively making the 4pc a 0 dps gain on shorter fights (mainly looking at m+ for this). I don’t know how anyone can defend that.
