12 Win Warrior Arena - Alexstrasza, Obsidian, Belcher, Spelleater! (14 games across 3 videos)

1 post in this topic

The draft: 
No Fiery Winaxe - however, there are some significant taunts - including Obsidian and double Belcher. 
Sideshow Spelleater has amazing potential - removing the Warrior's hero power that doesn't really impact the board. How about a Hunter's Steady Shot or a Mage's ping? 

The question is, will Alexstrasza make a difference?


VIDEO 1: 12 Win Warrior Arena Part 1 - He who taunts first wins?



1: Hunter - WIN - A straightforward game. The Hunter never was able to put a dent in my health.

2: Rogue - WIN - I thought I had a taunt heavy deck. The Rogue goes crazy with taunt after taunt! Sideshow Spelleater lets me win the game.

3: Hunter - WIN - After a few dodgy trades on my part, I taunt up. Deadly Shot kills my Obsidian - but Alex arrives to give me lethal!

4: Warrior - WIN - He who taunts up first wins?

 

VIDEO 2: 12 Win Warrior Arena Part 2 - Spelleater, Belcher, Obsidian value.



5: Druid - WIN - Starfire on a Cobra? Sure. I'll take that. Sideshow Spelleater lets me pretend to be a Druid. Playing a big tree won't save you! Obsidian goes to work here in a major way, backed up by Sludge Belcher.

6: Paladin - WIN - Cultmaster and Obsidian value takes us to 6 wins.

7: Paladin - WIN - Sword of Justice for the Paladin causes a slight panic. A 3-2 charging horse with a divine shield?! Coghammer? Kings? Another Kings? Keeper of Uldaman? Not enough!

8: Rogue - WIN - Double Slime from the Sludge Belchers wins the day.

9: Paladin - WIN - Secrets everywhere! Some interesting decisions get made. The Paladin makes a huge push at the end with Mind Control Tech, Keeper of Uldaman and Murloc Knight. The Paladin actually drafted NAT PAGLE! Alex gives me significant board presence at the end, allowing me to go face, face, face!

10: Paladin - LOSS - Perhaps some of my plays were questionable. Although, the Paladin has answers to everything (Consecration, Keeper of Uldaman, Mind Control Tech, Hammer of Wrath, Aldor, Murloc Knight, etc). One turn you are in control, the next, you are screwed. I dream about what would have happened if my Frothing Berserker could not be answered in the early game... Alex does nothing at the end for me. His board was too strong.

11: Rogue - WIN - Double Belcher says hello.

12: Warrior - LOSS - My opponent had Fiery win axe :-( I get punished by an Ooze for not using my weapon... I get punished for freezing the wrong minion. Even Tinkmaster Overspark can't save me. The Warrior plays VARIAN WRYNN just to add insult to injury.

13: Paladin - WIN - The Paladin actually gets Lil'Exorcist actually gets DOUBLE value from my deathrattle minions sad.png Despite the Paladin having a huge board, I make the decision to go face at the end, which ends up winning me the game. I stealth my Venture Co - which he was not able to answer. The gamble paid off!

14: Mage - WIN - The final boss. Nervous. Scary. I wasn't keen on drafting Inner Rage, but it actually has helped me in this series. Spectral Knight is such a great card in Arena. Can't be targeted by spells. It can be healed up too by another minion. That 6 health is fantastic. Even when at 1 health, it can't be pinged by the Mage's hero power. Oh - but wait - an Elven Archer can kill it! Good plays from the Mage. On an interesting note, Spellslinger gives me BLOODLUST (which I didn't get a chance to play).

      I am hoping someone can share their opinion on a very specific question I have about the Arms warrior rotation (FR build). It's all about the following situation which i encounter very often: Colossus Smash has been applied to the target, i have 1 or 2 stacks of Focused Rage, and Mortal Strike and Focused Rage are both coming off cooldown at the same moment. My dilemma here is whether i should cast FR just before MS so that MS hits harder, or if i should cast FR just after MS so that MS has a higher chance of resetting due to the extra 15 Rage i spent after it. 
      What i have decided to do for now depends on whether Shattered Defenses is up. When it is up, i use FR before MS so MS hits extra hard. When Shattered Defenses is not up, i use FR after MS. I should add that i have both the gloves and ring legendaries (lucky me), so Rage shortage is almost never an issue for me. 
      I hope i didn't confuse anyone, feel free to ask for clarification. Thank you

      Hi everyone
      I heard a rumor regarding patch 7.2.0 and "ignore pain". According to the rumor, Blizzard will nerf it. Is there any hold in that?
      Cheers

      Hey everyone and thanks for popping in and providing with some care :)

      I've always been a pretty decent warrior in previous expansions. Maybe not over the top but never bad. However, this expansion, I'm feeling terribly weak. I perform so much subpar my gearlevel that my precious warrior now is nothing but a mere alt.
      SO,  I finally decided that it's time to stop fooling around, I want to become a good warrior again! 
      I've put up a log from an LFR grp on Xavius and can ofc put up more logs if needed. I know I messed up a few priorities in this fight due to utter chaos (LFR u know ;P) but apart from that it's no MAJOR difference from how I normally perform unfortunately:
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/V3R9gAFZWDdhN68b#type=damage-done&source=5
      My gear is mostly tanking stuff but the stats are not that different in the end:
      ilvl: 868
      Crit: 13%
      Haste: 33%
      Mastery: 27%
      Vers: 9%

      I am using simcraft and pawn for my gearchoice and regularily scan to see if anything changes with new gear etc.
      Help is much appreciated and many thanks in advance!
