What would you change about your favorite class or spec?

I’ve wanted Titan’s Grip tanking for World of Warcraft since the talent was introduced (back when it was a talent) during Wrath of the Lich King, to the point where I actually did tank with it, back when you could viably tank as a Arms or Fury Warrior as long as you dipped 10 to 20 points in Protection. The idea of using a 2h weapon and a shield has struck me as something that should absolutely be part of the Warrior toolkit, to the point that I side-eyed the Crusader in Diablo 3 pretty hard when they essentially got that same ability.

At the same time, I miss Single-Minded Fury a lot. I honestly felt like the solution from Warlords of Draenor was the best one, with Crazed Berserker really being the best possible evolution of how Fury handled dual wielding, and while I knew Legion was going to take one of them away and I wanted Titan’s Grip to survive more than SMF, I won’t pretend I wouldn’t have preferred if both had remained. Similarly, the loss of Gladiator’s Resolve, another Warlords change, made protection a lot less fun and interesting. In a lot of ways, Warriors peaked in Warlords — there were some cool talents and abilities that made the class more flexible and able to be played in a variety of ways that we’ve lost, and nothing that’s replaced them has been quite as cool (although Rampage comes close).

But Warriors are just one class, and every class has seen revisions and changes over the years. What change would you make to your favorite class, if you could? What talent, spell, ability or other option would you bring back or “unprune” as the kids say these days? What new option would you introduce? Would you go back to Legion‘s Survival spec for Hunters? Would you bring back Combat Rogues? Would you ditch Holy Power? What would you change about the class or spec you enjoy?
