World PvP on a PvE server

7 posts in this topic

I'm a bit new to WoW and as such I'm little confused about the server differences. How does World PvP function on a PvE server as compared to a PvP server? I understand that on a PvP server players on the opposing faction can attack you whenever they wish in a contested area but how does it work on PvE servers? Can you flag yourself for PvP on a PvE server if you wish to participate in World PvP?

Thank you for the response, Mutterkorn. How does the flag work? Is there an icon next to player names when they are flagged?

Yes you can. Simply type /pvp and you are flagged.

Your name is a different colour (green) when you are flagged for PvP

And there is a small faction icon on your Unit Frame.

Edit: I am not sure how long it lasts, but i think if you turned it on manually, you have to turn it off the same way. Only difference: If you turn it off, it will take five minutes until it really turns off.

The same happens, if you turn it on by attacking a guard or a member of the opposite faction. But i think here it turns off automatically five minutes after your last hostile action.

Thank you both for the information, I greatly appreciate it!

Additionally, if you have PvP quests, they will automatically flag you until the quests are completed or dropped (with a 5 min timer before flag expires)

You will have a resident pvp flag after exiting BGs for 5 minutes

One other thing, if it's Red, it's Dead

      The updated Icefury build suggests that Totem Mastery is taken.  However, nowhere in the priority whatsoever is it used.  It is, however, used in the Ascendance build.
      That being said, why would you pass on two talents of which you will actually include in your priority to take a talent for an ability you will not?  Or is there any error in the priority?  Is it worth casting?  And where at in the priority?
      Thank you.

      Hey yall! so i'm writing this because i just want to undesrtand something. my friend and i compared numbers today because we are both shadow priests albeit i have a higher ilvl than he does maybe by around 7 im sitting at 863 . 
      what happend was during the last fight we decided to do the same -ish rotations meaing we both had vamp touch and shadow pain up on the same boss at all times.
      at the end of the fight i found something odd,
      his vamp touch dealt 4.99m dmg with max hit at 315 and minimum 
      mine only dealt 3.71 with max hit at 335 but take this in, minimum hit at 17k LOLLL
      another thing that got my attention
      his max hit on mind blast was 512 k, while mine was only at 281k.
      his crit and mastery stands at 20% and 40%, mine at 24% and 42%
      his haste stands at 27 and mine stands at 24
      can anyone explain this? at all? does it make any sense at all LOL

      Hello all,
      So, first off, I've decided to bring my hunter out of retirement and have begun the (not so horrid) grind. I've reached the point in Legion where I have both my BM and MM artifacts and I've messed around the current "best" talent choices and rotations to try and see how they play out.
      I'm in the early stages of Legion levelling (currently 103) but I have mained a Death Knight since just after Legion started and wanted a nice old school rDPS alternative for when the raids call for it. I've messed around with both specs *briefly* (and naturally as I level I'll get a better feel for them both) and I can't really decide which route I'd prefer to go down and with the incoming changes to BM (buffs all around it seems) and nerfs to some aspects of MM I'd really like to gather the opinions of other people to help me decide which route is best for me.
      Things I've noticed so far:
      1. Focus regen is an issue in BM and too a lesser extent in MM, I constantly find myself out of focus for up to 1-2 seconds, so I'm stood AAing - is this normal? A product of low, under-geared, lack of haste?
      2. Sidewinders feels HORRIBLE to use. I'm all for using what is best for that DPS race, but this talent just feel so poor to use. It might be a product of the way I play my Frost DK, but I like having filler spells, and the loss and or Arcane and Multi shot spam just hurts my gameplay feel.
      3. Did I mention Sidewinders feels horrible? The fact it pulls everything unless I'm hugging my target in melee range really doesn't make sense to me either. Why is this the mechanic?
      4. From a round of log reading I've seen that both BM and MM (as of 7.1.0) perform better in various fights and in various ways -- But my guild mates tell me otherwise. This could be a lack of them personally playing either spec, but just something I wanted to query what people think, although I guess with the changes coming it isn't as relevant now.
       
      For anyone that can give me any advice on which way to go it would be very appreciated, I'd love to get back into Hunter, I just really can't decide which spec will suit me best in playstyle and raiding! (Also, I'm torn on a class fantasy level because Windrunner bow vs 2 pets!)
      Thanks for taking the time to read (and reply!)

      So, I am maining a Blood DK. I recently started playing some Unholy (Love the Lore and class Art ;) ). My dilemma is that I'm not that good, so in an attempt to truly understand the class I tried my hand at creating a DPS prio WeakAura.
       

      The WeakAura does:
      Not track CDs
      Not track Talents
      Shows (what I understands is the) single-target rotation
       
      Now I am looking for feedback on it. So if anyone wants, have the time and so on, pleas leave a comment if I got something wrong.
