Well, if Ravage is one word, I guess it should be something similar for a guardian, like a sunburst, blaze, exorcise, perish, decimate, breakthrough.... I dunno. I am sure there is a great verb out there.
Deal.

Pretty much.

I don't really care either way. I'm used to calling it Master Strike by now, but switching that to Blade Dance doesn't really grind my gears.

There is literally a thousand things you could discuss about this article. What do you think about the new utilities? What do you think about the new Sentinel/Marauder abilities? Do you think it will help their overall state in PvP? I could go on. Yet the thing people went for is: "I don't like that, change it!".

Yeah, a forum that has some useful discussions. That'd be great.

As I've said before, I don't mind this name at all. I don't think it's amazing, mind you, but it's no sillier than Master Strike and I actually prefer it to Master Strike. At least with Blade Dance you can argue that it implies multiple hits, something Master Strike doesn't do, on top of the aforementioned conflicts with the class' naming conventions.

I wouldn't be opposed to them changing it to something new, or even keeping Master Strike (I prefer Blade Dance but not by so much that I'd be bothered by them not actually using it), but let's not pretend that Master Strike was any less silly.

Personally I kinda like it from a RP perspective. Puts me in mind of of my favorite series of books. Fights between Drizzt and Artemis where always equated to a dance, and that's how I pictured their fight scenes while reading. Plus, to me, that's how a master would truly fight, as opposed to the hack and slash of a beginner. Just my 2c on a positive spin.

Please considering using a different name.

Sith Warriors use... Ravage. And Jedi Knights... Blade Dance.

EDIT: I and thousands (maybe, one day, millions!) more will be extremely confused if using the Blade Rush ability in the same rotation. Both have the word "Blade." Clearly, a new name should be considered.
Who the flip cares what they name it, it the least of your problems, when you got sorc blinking and teleporting around.

My take on it as well. The names on abilities do not matter.

The name is fitting because you can see how much strenght SW uses while doing Ravage while his Jedi counterpart...dances. The whole set of guardian animations look silly and now they also get a silly name to match

How about Blade Prance? And why does no one say Wizard anyway?
