Underpowered

The two characters I am currently playing in Legion, both now level 110, are a fury warrior and a frost mage. Let's have a look what the 7.1 patch notes say about these two:
Mage
Frost
  • Brain Freeze now also increases the damage of your next Flurry by 50%.
  • Waterbolt damage increased by 25%.
  • Water Jet damage increased by 100%.
  • Lonely Winter now increases the damage of affected spells by 25% (was 20%).
  • Flurry damage increased by 5%.
  • Ice Lance damage increased by 5%.
  • Frostbolt damage increased by 5%.
  • Ray of Frost damage increased by 5%.
  • Frost Bomb damage increased by 5%.
  • Comet Storm damage increased by 5%.
  • Ebonbolt damage increased by 5%.
  • Frozen Orb damage increased by 5%.
  • Blizzard damage increased by 10%.

Warrior
Fury
  • Raging Blow damage increased by 8%.
  • Rampage damage increased by 8%.
  • Execute damage increased by 8%.
  • Bloodthirst damage increased by 8%.
  • Odyn’s Fury damage increased by 8%.
  • Furious Slash damage increased by 8%.
  • Dragon Roar damage increased by 8%.
  • Ravager damage increased by 8%.
  • Enrage now increases damage taken by 20% (was 30%).
Is it just me, or did I manage to choose the two most underpowered specializations in the game? 

Comments:
I also have a Fury Warrior and I didn't feel particularly underpowered, but +8%? Hell yeah!
 
They are towards the bottom tier of dps at the moment. Although unless you are in a raiding guild trying to min max everything it really doesn't matter.

The difference between the top dps and lowest dps in the game right now is around 50-60k. That's not a lot.
 
They are underpowered in Mythic raids and level 15 Mythic dungeons. All balance tweaks which add or remove raw damage are usually aimed either at highest level PvE.
 
"Is it just me, or did I manage to choose the two most underpowered specializations in the game?"

I'm pretty sure I told you exactly that at the time. :)
