12 Win TGT Hunter Arena: Hyenas, Nefarian vs Malorne, Fel Reavers, bluffing Flamestrikes & Ball of Spiders (with analysis and audio commentary)

1 post in this topic

This is my 12 Win Hunter arena run, a tremendous amount of fun.  

  

Video with commentary:

 

 

 

Points of interest and analysis:  

  

- Watch out for the Warlock game featuring Nefarian and a FEL REAVER (game 6). My strategy paid off. I milled him and tanked 8 damage to the face from the Fel Reaver. The use of taunts to protect the Fel Reaver was theoretically genius. Victory was in sight and then I saw Nefarian. I dropped Malorne and a Freezing Trap to win. I almost lost hope - but managed to still win.  

  

- Game 9 vs a Mage features a fantastic Flamestrike bluff. He even says thanks when I start filling my board. I took the risk and there was no Flamestrike. Tremendous.  

  

- The last game against the Rogue was filled with tension. I may have misplayed a couple of times when considering a Worgen was on board for the Rogue and may interact with the Slime that comes out of my Sludge Belcher. However, the Rogue didn't take advantage of that!  

  

- I was ill when playing these games - so at times, I may have said strange things on commentary (calling cards by the wrong name, etc...) - please forgive me :-)  

  

Other points of interest:  

  

- Scavenging Hyena beast synergy is insane. it wins games. It reminds me of my 12 win Hunter run from August!!  

  

- Glaivezooka gives you such a strong start. Linked to that, Bloodsail Raider Glaivezooka synergy is so strong.  

  

- Webspinner giving you Malorne is hilarious. A Hunter playing a Druid card? I call it justice (considering how often Druid beats me on ladder).  

  

- There are no Highmanes or Animal Companions in this deck! How did we get 12 wins?  

  

- Steamwheedle Sniper can pick off big minions who are low on health. Incredible value.  

  

- In an ideal world, Argent Horserider would have 3 attack.  

  

- Multi-Shot wins games when used in the correct circumstances. A 5 attack charging horse with 3 health? Sure. I'll just use Multi-Shot.  

  

- Sometimes, this deck feels confused - as if it were suffering an identity crisis. Do I go face? Do I trade? Do I want to draw cards or focus on flooding the board? Oh well, it all worked out in the end.

  

- A Mage with Forcetank and Mirror Image is hard to beat. You know that tank is going face at least twice.  

  

- We actually manage to pull off Mechwarper - Metaltooth Leaper synergy at least once. That's all I hoped for.  

  

- Using a Cultmaster do draw one card is fine. It still got value. That's fine. More than one card is preferred. But one card is still fine.  

  

- Ball of Spiders vs Madder Bomber. We all know how that ends. Oh and in general, Ball of Spiders did nothing for me. Nothing.  

  

- Why can't I win jousts?

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes 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/world quests to improve your gear and 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 and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565

      I think simcraft doesn't have appropriate preset for qapla and aspect of beast talent.
      how can i find the preset for qapla and aspect of beast talent??
       
      (I don't know exact word for preset.  I mean sth like this
      # Executed before combat begins. Accepts non-harmful actions only.
      actions.precombat=flask
      actions.precombat+=/augmentation,type=defiled
      actions.precombat+=/food
      actions.precombat+=/summon_pet
      # Snapshot raid buffed stats before combat begins and pre-potting is done.
      actions.precombat+=/snapshot_stats
      actions.precombat+=/potion
       
      # Executed every time the actor is available.
      actions=auto_shot

      summon_pet=cat
      this was in mmo but i don't think this works appropriate cause when i used this DPS dropped about 20k.
      but when i used aspect of beast in-game DPS difference was not that much)

      This is my current pawn string from sims:
      Agility=21.87, CritRating=18.49, HasteRating=24.16, MasteryRating=22.94, Versatility=17.33
      Is anyone else getting haste over mastery and agi? I recently got the Mantle (FINALLY!), so not sure if that is affecting anything. I know crit used to be important for Mantle, so I am not sure why it would be the culprit here. I even tested swapping out my enchants to haste and it did provide a slight boost while maintaining the same scaling. Mastery is at 9300, Crit at 9300 and Haste at 8000 (Roughly), so I definitely dont feel I have enough mastery to start warranting haste over it and agi.
      Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this too?
      I do have the current sim build, so no issues there.
