12-2 TGT Paladin Arena run - Videos and analysis - featuring Loatheb and my MVP Frost Elemental vs. Deathwing and a crazy Taunt Warrior!

1 post in this topic

I recently managed a 12-2 Paladin arena run. This series of games had it all! Everything from facing Bloodknights, to giants, and even Deathwing!!

 

There was also the curious case of a Shaman with double Mana Tide totems, Hexx, a Kodo and Mukla's Champion. Whatever I did, the Shaman had an answer.

 

There was also a poor Rogue with terrible RNG. This was the exact opposite to the Shaman. Whatever the Rogue did, it just didn't work out for him! Lots of 'I am sorry' emotes!

 

My Frost Elemental was the MVP that helped me survive through a number of games. Such a valuable card when you are: a) Trying to survive and build board presence, or B) Trying to win by pushing lethal.

 

Loatheb was good for me too - at least as a 5/5 body. I am going to assume that he blocked out spells that could have been played on turn 5 onwards. Really good against Mages and Shamans.

 

There were no Equalities, no Consecrations and no Truesilver Champions. Yet the deck still managed a 12 win run. Coghammer did prove useful - and I would argue it is better than Truesilver Champion due to the divine shield and taunt effect.

 

The final game to get my 12th win saw me go up against a taunt Warrior. Wow what a tense game. The Warrior had it all - constant taunts, weapons, etc! If a Warrior can make it so far in an arena run, you know the deck must be CRAZY!

 

I recorded the drafting process and games, and uploaded to Youtube - with audio commentary:

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.

      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.

      - Experience on 4 or more bosses in EN Mythic.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      So, as you know, Execution Sentence was reduced by 15% in the last hotfix as seen here https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/20478238/hotfixes-january-18
      With that, I am curious to see if execution sentence is still worth taking over Final Verdict (without legendary cloak).
      Thoughts?

      Hello,
      the gods of rng decided to reward me today with a  Draught of Souls titanforged from the timewalking chest. My question is, do I use it when I have max stacks of crusade or just use it on cd? Say for a fight that lasts 6 mins.
      Thanks!
