12 Win Warrior Arena - Alexstrasza, Obsidian, Belcher, Spelleater! (14 games across 3 videos)

1 post in this topic

The draft: 
No Fiery Winaxe - however, there are some significant taunts - including Obsidian and double Belcher. 
Sideshow Spelleater has amazing potential - removing the Warrior's hero power that doesn't really impact the board. How about a Hunter's Steady Shot or a Mage's ping? 

The question is, will Alexstrasza make a difference?


VIDEO 1: 12 Win Warrior Arena Part 1 - He who taunts first wins?



1: Hunter - WIN - A straightforward game. The Hunter never was able to put a dent in my health.

2: Rogue - WIN - I thought I had a taunt heavy deck. The Rogue goes crazy with taunt after taunt! Sideshow Spelleater lets me win the game.

3: Hunter - WIN - After a few dodgy trades on my part, I taunt up. Deadly Shot kills my Obsidian - but Alex arrives to give me lethal!

4: Warrior - WIN - He who taunts up first wins?

 

VIDEO 2: 12 Win Warrior Arena Part 2 - Spelleater, Belcher, Obsidian value.



5: Druid - WIN - Starfire on a Cobra? Sure. I'll take that. Sideshow Spelleater lets me pretend to be a Druid. Playing a big tree won't save you! Obsidian goes to work here in a major way, backed up by Sludge Belcher.

6: Paladin - WIN - Cultmaster and Obsidian value takes us to 6 wins.

7: Paladin - WIN - Sword of Justice for the Paladin causes a slight panic. A 3-2 charging horse with a divine shield?! Coghammer? Kings? Another Kings? Keeper of Uldaman? Not enough!

8: Rogue - WIN - Double Slime from the Sludge Belchers wins the day.

9: Paladin - WIN - Secrets everywhere! Some interesting decisions get made. The Paladin makes a huge push at the end with Mind Control Tech, Keeper of Uldaman and Murloc Knight. The Paladin actually drafted NAT PAGLE! Alex gives me significant board presence at the end, allowing me to go face, face, face!

10: Paladin - LOSS - Perhaps some of my plays were questionable. Although, the Paladin has answers to everything (Consecration, Keeper of Uldaman, Mind Control Tech, Hammer of Wrath, Aldor, Murloc Knight, etc). One turn you are in control, the next, you are screwed. I dream about what would have happened if my Frothing Berserker could not be answered in the early game... Alex does nothing at the end for me. His board was too strong.

11: Rogue - WIN - Double Belcher says hello.

12: Warrior - LOSS - My opponent had Fiery win axe :-( I get punished by an Ooze for not using my weapon... I get punished for freezing the wrong minion. Even Tinkmaster Overspark can't save me. The Warrior plays VARIAN WRYNN just to add insult to injury.

13: Paladin - WIN - The Paladin actually gets Lil'Exorcist actually gets DOUBLE value from my deathrattle minions sad.png Despite the Paladin having a huge board, I make the decision to go face at the end, which ends up winning me the game. I stealth my Venture Co - which he was not able to answer. The gamble paid off!

14: Mage - WIN - The final boss. Nervous. Scary. I wasn't keen on drafting Inner Rage, but it actually has helped me in this series. Spectral Knight is such a great card in Arena. Can't be targeted by spells. It can be healed up too by another minion. That 6 health is fantastic. Even when at 1 health, it can't be pinged by the Mage's hero power. Oh - but wait - an Elven Archer can kill it! Good plays from the Mage. On an interesting note, Spellslinger gives me BLOODLUST (which I didn't get a chance to play).

      Since shield block doesn't do donkey dick for most of the tank buster mechanics and the boss auto attacks hit like a wet noodle, is it even worth gearing haste at all? Wouldn't I be better off going for only mastery/versatility?

      Hi,
      I've just finished normal with my main 890ilvl (54 points) prot tank and also with my 876ilvl (36 points) druid tank.
      My conclusion is the following:
      The protection warrior is taking way to high damage from almost all abilities except auto-attacks which are low anyway.
      Shield block doesn't work against any of the abilities in nighthold and doesn't help with any magical skills.
      Basically our block even with 2 set items, having aprox 65% crit block chance is useless in Nighthold.
      The fact that our main reduction ability except our 8k-ish armor is useless for all Nighthold bosses. Demo, LS, SW, SR are ok for stack abilities or strong abilities but they couldn't be frequent enough. The damage taken spikes are crazy...just crazy and I've kept IP 40-60% of the damage and decent 90% + bracket dps.
      Paladin tank and warrior tank used to be very similar in damage taken ( normal damage taken ), now paladin is taking 100 millions and warrior is taking 200-400 million on same boss. This is because their damage is percent damage reduction and that works for magical also, but our shield block is irrelevant. Also paladins block spells now.
      In regard to my 876ilvl druid, I've done Guldan solo tanking without any stress. I've done rest of bosses without a problem, only keeping 1-2 stack of ironfur up and using rest of my rage for the 30% reduction every 10 sec, and I won't even start with the amount of cds druids have. These runs showed me how warrior is 0 compared to paladin,druid and DK. 
      I would place warrior on last place under DK, as Shield Block is an irreleant ability in this raid. You can check logs and compare raids from EN and Nighthold. It seems that to be so-so with a warrior tank you would have to maximize versatility and ignore every other stat :|, maybe then you will start reducing some damage from this raid.
       
      I believe that even the first version of warrior tank from start of EN couldn't handle Nighthold as good as paladin,druid can now. They were just op at low level for being able to handle high mythic dungeons at low gear for stacking IP 2 million absorb, but they scaled bad compared to others and that IP would drop in 2 hits on Mythic EN content, making it so-so anywany.
       
      Post below if any ideas pop to mind related to the above problem. Thanks !
