Is War Caster really that great?
Divine casters excluded, you still need a free hand for material components. An Eldritch Knight can't cast Fireball without an arcane focus, meaning they can't dual wield, 2-hand or s&b without sacrificing spell options, which are limited enough already. War Caster solves the somatic comp problem only, so Burning Hands and the like are available. Still, WC isn't the cure-all some make it out to be.
