Default Warriors are useless in 90% of the games content

Don't bother @ me it's true.

Nobody wants them outside of raids unless they're a charity case or desperation case pick for the group.

Every other class combo is better when grouping for a majority of the game.

Warriors live in the timespace of weekly raids, anywhere else, dont bother.

As a tank I agree, with a non shit tier 2h they are decent dps in a group tho.

Agreed. Warriors can output good DPS, especially if they are berserking.

SK's and Paladins are the better XP group tanks.

This is because SK's and Paladins don't have to rely on procs for hate generation, and XP groups don't need Warrior Disc's.

I know you have this strange hypothesis about Warrior pulling, but Warriors factually don't have any secret method of pulling. SK's and Paladins can pull in the same way as your Warrior, if you prefer that method of pulling.

The only time Warriors had a unique pulling method was years ago, when you could sneak pull with halfling Warriors. Sadly sneak pulling was fixed years ago, so this is no longer possible.

Doing fine is not excelling.

Needing meme setups or relying on chance to perform only 70% of the utility others get at their disposal, at will, and thinking you're on par is the highest dosage of copium they legally allow.

Of course. Warriors can tank in XP groups. I don't think anybody has said they can't. OP is pointing out they aren't as good in this role, which is true. If you could pick any tank in an XP group that doesn't need Warrior discs, you would pick a Paladin or SK over a Warrior.

You can root mobs when you have a Paladin or SK tanking as well. However, Paladin's and SK's can provide snap agro when needed. Warriors cannot.

EDIT: I am not trying to suggest people shouldn't play Warriors in XP groups, or that XP groups shouldn't take Warriors. Warriors simply have weaknesses outside of raiding.
