Does the damage ever improve?
My rank 9 Chosen is doing horrible damage compared to my rank 6 Marauder, despite wearing better gear. He's equipped with a big ol' sword, but the damage done is not really that noteworthy compared to a sword and board. Maybe it's because all the attacks I've seen in the game have had fixed numbers (that scaled with rank) instead of "weapon damage + x" and while they do appear to scale a bit with weapon damage, it's nothing noteworthy.
If any of you have played a Warrior in World of Warcraft, I kind of feel like I'm a Protection Warrior stuck in Defensive Stance with Revenge, Thunder Clap and Rend as my only attacks. I'd like some attacks that did more damage, because I'm getting tired of spamming keys. Really. I'd love an attack that chopped off maybe 25% of an "Equal" target's health. Let it rip a hole in my AP tank if it helps. I'm tired of hitting the same three buttons a dozen times before my AP pool runs dry and I have to auto-attack for a while before repeating.
Does the hurtin' ever start? Or should I throw any Warrior expectations carried over from WoW out the window and go for a melee DPS class like the Marauder or Witch Elf instead? I really love the damage of the Marauder. It feels a lot like a Fury Warrior from WoW, except in leather gear, but I want the big armor and weapons!
Had been looking forward to running into battle as a huge Chaos Chosen or Black Orc, swinging my sword/axe and cleavin' stunties left and right, but so far I'm not seeing any reason to equip a Great Weapon instead of a board.
Edit: Changed title.
