PvP

17 posts in this topic

Hey, do you think we could get a PvP dedicated section? Me personally, I love PvP.

People could post Ideas for the best Strategies for Bgs, or the best comps for Arenas. Some How-to guides for people who want to start working on their PvP skills.

I would gladly create a list or two of tips and tricks for PvP.

A PVP board would probably make a good board, although I think I remember seeing somewhere that new board creations were being put off until more users and board traffic was there to accommodate it.

Exactly, at this point there's no real point in making a new board just to put 3 threads in them. The class specific subforums (and maybe a pvp board and/or others) will be added once the traffic gets a bit higher and the current forums are too cluttered.

Can't wait for it, I'll probably be the most active poster there.

I wish we could get atleast one subforum now :/

We are going to add the class subforums this week-end. In the process, we will add a PvP subforum as well ;)

Just thought I'd jump in and say I got my ability_warrior_trauma.jpgWrecking Ball

Normally I play Disc PvP and heal but just started on my crummy rogue. Never ever really tried for the achievement before but was a nice buzz getting it in an 85 battleground :D

congratulations, I haven't been able to get it yet. My priest is just too bad. I think I'll look for a premade honorable kill farm this week, it should work that way.

My favourite thing in PvP: killing rogues.

My most hated thing in PvP: rogues.

Congratulations, though :)

Nah I dislike rogues and DKs... nothing worse than getting that DK down to about 5%, half a tick later he has full health, DG you in and all your kiting cool downs are gone so all you can do is pop a snake trap and a couple of raptor strikes to knock off about 1hp while getting smacked in your face.

I do like hpallys. They are awesome. Scilencing followed by pew pew pew stun arcane blast pew pew pew DEAD.

I'm sorry to say this, Sanketsd, but Frost Mages are extremely unbalanced and overpowered, at least against most melee classes. I know that discussions based on the statement I just made just go around in circles, but the only weakness I can possibly think of for a Frost Mage in arena is the fact that they are a cloth wearer and thus take more damage from physical attacks. To counter that, you have:

  • The ability to CC players without a cooldown (Polymorph). Even if diminishing returns exists, it's only 15 seconds and he can still CC alternating players. Compare that to a Warrior who's got his only CC on a 2 minute cooldown.
  • The ability to root and slow enemies constantly (including with your elemental).
  • Practically untouchable thanks to Blink (15 second cooldown, really?) and roots. Also you can Blink out of stuns... come on.
  • Reasonable self-healing through glyphed Evocation. Nothing outstanding but it exists.
  • Emergency invulnerability thanks to Iceblock.
  • Insane burst DPS. Truly, a Deep Freeze + Frostbolt + Ice Lance is beyond devastating.
  • Lame combinations like Polymorphing someone and putting Ring of Frost on top of them.
  • Oh, Counterspell, blanket silence on a 24 second cooldown FTW.

DKs can be annoying, but I feel that they're quite sensibly balanced and not at all impossible to kill. Although if you're a single melee DPS vs a Blood DK, good luck.

      I have a few questions concerning the upcoming expansion:
      First I wanted to ask, how everything with legendarys and artefacts is now going to be, are there still gonna be legendarys with the same role as in Legion and what about artefacts, are the HoA armors the new artefacts ?
       
      Furthermore I wanted to know wheter or not pvp is mandatory for warfronts and island plundering or if you don't need to be a top pvp player to still achieve some nice things and interesting rewards.
       
      With warfronts I also wanted to enquire how the gameplay most likely will look like, they are pve events so you shouldn't need to be a pvp player, right ?
      Also one last question, how hard do you think the warfront rewards will be to get ? The transmog does look quite nice and I wanted to ask if it is gonna be something, that is going to be locked and only available to hardcore players

      The clock is ticking ladies and gentlemen.  In these dark hours we are fighting off Armageddon on a dozen fronts. It is easy to be weary and it is easy to forget purpose.
      My name is Reverend John Hagee and I am the seventh son of the seventh son. 
      I have come to bring you a holy message engraved upon my very soul by the light. Evil exists; it is has been recorded in the books of history. Written in the blood of our families who have died fighting the unholy horde. We cannot hide from this evil, it has shaped us.  It has become part of who we are.  My grandfather fell fighting at the dark portal in the first war and my father fell fighting the undead in Stratholme. My family has served the light with a fiery faith for generations.  And I know one day the light will see fit to call me home from the field of battle and so shall my sons take up the holy banners of the alliance and meet the cowardly horde on the fields of battle. 
      Arthas tried to consume our world with his undead masses.  Deathwing shattered the very grounds of Azeroth.  The Iron Horde tried to accomplish when the Azerothian horde have always been too weak to do, annihilate us all. We are living in age of enemies. There is the savage inhuman orc that drank of the demon’s blood before invading and slaughtering our kin.  The forsaken whose souls are so twisted they no longer feel the light, who are led by the banshee queen who soul is owed to the old god Yogg Saron. The once great tauren, an old race that is supposed to guardian nature yet allies itself with corruptions of nature!  The trolls who so readily excepted the horde..who have been the enemies of humans and elves alike for more than an age. We are living in age of enemies. Surrounded and attacked on all sides.
      I have served the light all my long and weary life.  I have come to the conclusion that while we idolize its ideals we have missed its personification that dwells amongst us.  Surely, the night elf goddess Elune is the very manifestation of the light we worship.  Elune is herself is a goddess of the light, shining on us and guiding us in the dark hours.  How many times has her power been manifest when we need it the most? How many wounds mended by the night elf sisters that serve Elune?  Is it not she who cleansed the soul of the fallen dragon aspect Ysera?  The dreamer who had been our ally for countless fights fallen by the legion but cleansed by the might of Elune!
      If we accept Elune as the lights will incarnate, then you must accept that the Night Elves have a sacred place within our faith. We must provide support to this conflict for they are Elune’s chosen people.  What we do for them, we do for ourselves. They are a race brought into existence by Elune, blessed by Elune.
      In Ashenvale the horde rears its head, destroying the sacred forests of Night Elves.  It is an ever-growing struggle between our allies, the forces of good and the horde, the corrupting darkness that consumes our world.  In the bellies of Warsong Gultch the great evil of our time struggles against our persecuted brethren, the Silverwing Sentinels.  If there is one thing I can make clear it is that Elune has chosen the Night Elves as her people and we have chosen ourselves to be there allies. To the savage horde know this, we shall meet you on the fields of battle and you shall know the power of a mighty god.  We will be the tool that smites you and washes your stain from this land.  We shall condemn you to the ravaging maw of the twisting nether. I call all those who serve the light to answer the needy call of the Night Elves. Alliance, I call on you.
       
       
       
      For the advocates of peace remember this, to see evil and call it anything other than evil, is to be evil.
       
       
      Okay, probably bad rp attempt aside, <warsong ministries> is looking to build some twink teams.  I ran a 19 guild called <I found the flag honest> prior to the separation of the brackets and only recently discovered twinking was viable again.  I personally run 19s, 60s, and am working on a 99.  I have a few other 60s and 19s in guild but would like to expand.  If you have a homeless twink or want to build one, please consider rolling on Khaz Modan or Azjol nerub and joining us.  Any bracket welcome as well as mains.  I will help you get set up in any bracket to the best of my ability. catch me in game under Johnhagee, historical, absolution, moonseed, or undying. or just add the battletag omega#1452
       
      This Alliance will disintegrate if we do not come together and drive away the demons, whatever form they take.

      Hi ya'll - My Mission is to a make EVERYONE comfortable in PvP and have FUN knowing they're playing their class well, and are able to help contribute to the team. This should decrease the amount of griefers, salty dogs, ragers, and quitters in PvP throughout arena / bgs!! It's my goal <3
      Pushing towards that I wanted to share a PvP Guide I've put together breaking down talents, honor talents, and how to do the rotation for Elemental Shaman. I hope it helps you guys and gives you an edge in PvP. I'll be putting together some more to help break more pieces of PVP.
      Elemental shaman are at the BEST place they've been in for PATCHES!! So it's a great time to push rating and try some different comps out!! 
      My top 3v3 comps:
      1) Boom + Ele + MW/Hpal
      2) Destro + Ele + Heals
      3) Sub + Ele + HPriest
      4) Ele + War + Rdruid
      5) Spriest + Ele + Heals
      My top 2v2 comps - anything other than these is kind too hard to handle with how often there are melee in 2v2.
      1) MW + Ele
      2) Rogue + Ele
      3) Ele + Rdruid
      4) Ele + Hpriest
      Let me know what works for you and what doesnt!!
      The future guides will include
      1) Arena Guide - dealing with positioning, when to do damage, communicating , and key addons that will help you
      2) Battleground Guide - what specs work for each map, little tips and tricks per map type, and how to communicate with your teammates well
      3) UI - reviewing how different UI setups can REALLY enhance your pvp gameplay
      4) Keybinds and Macros - Trying to call out the little changes you can make that can make a big difference, and things you may not be thinking about for Macros/keybinds that could blow your mind.
