Playing for Priest Base Innkeeper Deck - Looking for obvious Priest misplays

Hello,

 

I've just started playing Priest (and HearthStone not too long ago), and wanted to play a few games with the base innkeeper deck before having a go at my own deck.

 

I don't know if that's something we do in HearthStone (we used to do it for Go (the strategy game)), but I uploaded a replay of my game at http://www.zerotoheroes.com/r/hearthstone/56407482e4b06cbc3d8bce82/playing-for-priest-base-innkeeper-deck-looking-for-obvious-priest-misplaysin case anyone wanted to have a look and help a n00b :)

 

Thanks for your help!

Yes, making your own decks is something people do. However, for new people like you, netdecking is better. This site is really good for netdecking and in case you have any trouble or question, you can simply ask. By the way, welcome to Icy-Veins forum :)

 

First mistake: playing the default deck. This site has basic decks and they are pretty good for basic decks (although I personally dislike Razorfen Hunter). In this case I guess you want a Basic Priest deck.

You wasted the Elven Archer by playing her on turn 1 for face damage. Druid's hero power adds armor, giving him more sustain. One damage against that doesn't do anything.

Playing Gurubashi on turn 6 was better. The only way he could deal with it was by Swipe or Starfall. In case he had swipe, his Token would die, but with the play you did his Token would survive and you would have no board at all. In case he had starfall,  he would spend his entire round playing it, giving you tempo. 

Playing Core Hound was bad and I feel you realised it. He dies to the minions on board and your opponent gains tempo. Gurubashi + Smite would be better.

Playing Mind Blast was good at any point in the game where you had remaining mana. Default priest deck doesn't have any spell damage.

Thanks for your comments! And hello to all of you, glad to be here :D

 

I actually don't like netdecking very much, especially when I don't know the game. I prefer to discover things gradually, and only start netdecking once I know what I'm looking for. Question of taste I guess :)

 

t1: agree, that was a bad play. I should keep the potential damage in hand rather than transform it into a weak creature on the board

t6: I see. I'm not really familiar with the responses the druid can have yet, but I understand now. I was probably too unreasonably attached to the cleric at this point.

t7: the reason I played the Hound was that I felt that it was capable of dealing with his minions, while the berserker couldn't. I didn't anticipate his buff though, and that proved fatal.

And I like to keep face damages hidden until I can go for lethal. It may lure the opponent into a false sense of security, and possibly play differently from what he would if he knew he was 5 hp behind.

 

Thanks again for the comments, they've been very useful!

      The Bloodborn is currently a Heroic raiding guild that is trying to break into Mythic progression raiding. We have a talented core and are very enthusiastic about raiding, but unfortunately we lack the numbers to attempt Mythic. We are a mostly adult guild ages 25-35 and would prefer like-aged people.
       
      A little history: The Bloodborn is a guild that has been around since The Burning Crusade. We started on the Lethon server and transferred to Illidan at the start of Warlords in an effort to find more players on a high-pop server.
       
      We have earned AoTC during every raid tier this expansion (and before!). We are a close-knit guild who help boost keys weekly, PvP, achievement hunt, and much more.
       
      We are willing to help people gear up for their tier. Voice is optional, but we use Discord and will require you at a minimum to listen.
       
      Guild Needs:
      DPS (Death Knight, Shadow Priest) are in high demand.
      Healers (Priest, Paladin, Shaman) are in high demand. 
      Accepting applications from all specs/classes.
       
      Raiding Times:
      Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday 9:30pm-12:30am(pst) 11:30pm-2:30am(server-time)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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, PUBG, 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 battletag: Vims#21684

      Good time, everyone. New set-bonus requires to do some rotation and now i mostly use binding heal + prayer of healing, but in case of running in Antorus - could surge of light from legendary be a good option? And maybe some other talent changes as well.

      Hi guys, I got some issues with my dps,
       
      I'm struggling to maintain over 650k dps...
       
      I'm new to fury warrior, was a mythic raider with my assassination rogue but... with the warrior it seems like I'm not doing something well...
       
      Here is what I do :
       
      OPENER
       
       
      Charge -> AVATAR+BC+Berserktroll -> BT -> RB -> RP -> OF …
       
       
      Trying to maintain enrage with BT or RP > RB > etc.. (normal rotation)
       
       
      I’m always tring to use RP at 100% rage,
       
       
      Do I have to clip it with BT ?
      I mean, when I’m enraged, my rotation is :
       
       
      RP (100% rage) -> RB -> BT -> RB > RP(100% rage)… with my +15% crit fillers
      I’m trying to pop OF everytime that I’m enraged (with BC if possible),
       
       
      I don’t have any set bonuses. No COF and no “good trinkets”…
       
       
      Execution phase :
      BT > EXEC EXEC… > BT > EXEC EXEC…
       
       
      I can’t link my armory…
       
       
      I’m Moca, War fury from SARGERAS EU
       
       
      Am I missing something ?
       
      I think that I'm supposed to be way higher, like 850k+...
       
      Thank you !
       
      Sorry, I'm french and new to fury, if you got some questions, don't hesitate :)
