So... Warriors. Do they suck?

Part my problem I think derives from the fact that this is my first ""real"" MMORPG. When I play a warrior in a D&D game he is an unrelenting instrument of death, not something for a monster to whack on but something for monsters to fear.

You''re right Eezy in that I think it does require a shift in thinking. This is not my usual warrior. I played Guild Wars extensively with a warrior though and enjoyed that immensely, being the tank. There''s collision detection in Guild Wars though so it''s MUCH easier to maintain aggro as the monsters can''t run through you to get at the casters. Also I grouped with some excellent monks who kept me alive. (Inspired me enough that I ended up taking a monk as my main char actually!)
