There is a way to avoid everything. I'm happy when a warrior slashes, it does less damage than a stance. You die faster if all stances hit you, than if all slashes hit you.
About lock on I have nothing against it. When you use lock on it becomes "easier" to hit your target, but a hit is not certain, unless you're really into the use of it. You can sidestep a lock by going the same way he is currently circling, because the lock on will make him run in a perfect elipse from the sidestep, making him miss... Also very sharp turns in a high amount of speed will make lock on miss. Another thing is that lock on has a certain delay. Which means you can be faster yourself without lock on, than someone using it. So you can sidehit him, and backhit him. If you don't believe it, let me prove it. Im assassin, you're warrior. You stand perfectly still, having lock on on me. I will try to backstab you. This is possible due to the delay. If there was no delay, this wouldn't be possible. Also while lock on is active you have a "FORCED" way of movement. While without it you have a free movement only a locker could dream of. The range indication of using lock on is the same as when you use no lock. But it's due to this "delay" that it seems like a long range hit. I see much more advantages without lock on than with it.
Fireblasts. I hate them with all my heart... I hate when team mates spam them randomly at the enemy base setting me and 2-3 other team mates on fire... The same for lorb. The avrage mage now a days simply don't give a jack shit about their team mates when using these abilities, but also in general.
Assassins bombs. I don't hate it, it's the assassins last defensive mechanism which can be avoided by a single jump, and it has a cooldown. It's also the only thing they have for really succesfully killing a warrior if the backstab fails. Now I have nothing against the bomb, but the poison. Jesus... It blackens out my screen totaly. I can't see a thing, I have no idea if it's a bug or not, but I have NO visual at all, and i really do mean NONE. I only hear sounds of things, that aren't really happening, such as an archer drawing an arrow, fireballs being shot, and stance clangs, etc.
Forbs. I have nothing against them due to the nerf they have recieved. I even liked it on default.
Stoneskin. I got nothing against it, not even on default either. It's a great teamplay tool.
Is there anything I missed / overlooked? ...
