Pssht whatever dude. Juggernaut is the best AC of all the melee classes (but yeah the story is the same).
Ehh, didn't mean to say a level 50 jugg is bad - the jugg comes into its own late-30s and gets better from there. Before then, compared to the marauder, I think everyone would have to say the jugg is clunkier to use.
But back to the OP - yeah, BW really cut down the number of projected classes and turned the ACs into just stat changers (which abilities/armor/stats you get) vs the unique classes they were originally designed as.
