|This tongue-in-cheek page is an attempt to humorously portray the sad situation of the Warrior profession in the teaming order and our discrimination from high level/raid level content.

Warriors of the world, unite!
Warriors are the blue collar worker of the Guild wars world. A well trained warrior forms an important part of a balanced GW team, from pretty much all levels of play. While everyone will congratulate the worst monk in the universe for a job well done, the warrior will usually be the one less praised and yet will have worked his ass off throughtout the whole mission. But then, just like all other blue collar workers, people don't notice them unless their garbage piles up, the pipes are leaking ( or in our case ) they have no aggro control and keep losing their squishies... then wiping completely.
But then again, just like all other fellow blue-collars, the disparaging remarks begin : "Anybody can do that job. There's nothing special about being a good Warrior." "WAMOs are lame. WAMMO WAMMO WAMMO. Unoriginal and lame." Every day young up and coming punks from other professions keep saying that "Warriors are gimp" "Warriors are useless" and of course the all-time favorite : "Assassin/Dervishes can tank as good as warriors, if not better".
And it gets worse. Ever try to get a team for the Tomb ? Perhaps you'd like to try your hand at doing some of the higher level instances, or elite missions. Been having issues finding a team, while every inbred elementarist and rangers gets in ? As much as it pains me to admit it, even when bastardising yourself with a blatant bullshit setup that is, yet, somehow "required" ( the ebon tank comes to mind) a warrior will still have immense issues finding a team.
The warrior profession, let's admit it brothers and sisters, is in dire trouble. Not only have we lost the PR war, but on top of it, new threats from unfair and unpaid competition ( Like the infamous scabs , Koss and Goren) make our propects of finding and retaining employment poorer and poorer every day. We must take action immediatly.
Amongs other things , there are myths that we will need to debunk like the infamous elementarist's pickup line of "Warriors do no damage", "W/MO is a stupid and dumb choice" (while I personally believe it's smart most of the times, but that's a long discussion) and the whole "Warriors are useless in high level instances".
This is why The Warrior Union is currently looking for members. Until a sufficient "core" membership is established, this page will remain. Then, we consult and establish a plan of action. IF you believe in the principles of the warrior union, and are tired of the warrior class oppression, impose your signature below the line. Together, we can make a difference.

- Hell yes! You have to admit there are too many warriors without a clue though, so there's no wonder they have such a reputation. Both the warrior-hating population and the bad-warrior population need re-eduction I say! Still, I'm finding that the situation is certainly getting better, which is encouraging. — Hyperion` // talk 14:05, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
- Hell yeah! Warriors are so easily "replaced" in Guild Wars; but there is no replacement for a good warrior. All the wammos in Guild Wars are ruining the warrior's reputation. Warriors were a vital part of any great team, and still are!--Warior kronos 19:03, 11 May 2007 (CDT)

- My Warrior is only level 17, but I love him :) Yes, I play ranger mostly, I started it, I have noticed that the all important warrior is being left out of so much these days. They can just solo farm :) Ramp Ager 1:47, 28 May 2007 (CDT)
