What WoW expansion was the best for your class?
For me, it's hard to say which World of Warcraft expansion had what I feel is the best Warrior, because each expansion did a few things I've loved -- Wrath of the Lich King brought us Titan's Grip, for example, which is absolutely my favorite Warrior ability of all time, even ahead of Charge.
