I thought I would farm some Pirate Warriors today!
Made a counter deck for it and only faced every bad matchup I could find with Dragon Priest, 
I'd run Ooze and Chillmaw, but that does nothing against reno decks except for when they play Medive and Jaraxxus. 

Lucky me :p 

PS: I've picked Dragon Priest for a 60 gold daily quest. But It didnt worked out for me.

Do you guys also have those moments when you switch deck and the meta looks like its all shifted?

On lesser samples - all the time. The moment I switch thinking "I'll catch my good matchups now" I get my worst ones.

And I can't counter Pirate Warrior with anything. Literally. I'm just dead turn 5 through any draw I have. Thanks for slowing the meta, Blizzard!

All the damn time, hence why I pick my poison for the evening and stick to it through hell and high water.

I never thought I would write this sentence out. But for someone with limited play time like me; more games lasting five minutes finished by turn 6 and less sleep-inducing thirty minutes long Control match-ups going into fatigue is a very good thing.

I guess I'm just playing the right decks but I'm yet to lose against a pirate warrior. That's through a combination of face shaman/murloc pala/dragon priest/demon zoo. I'm guaranteed to lose my next game against them now though ...

For the past two months or so my opponents have been pretty much exclusively either a mirror match or a zoolock. If I'm playing a deck that I enjoy, I'm pretty much guaranteed to face a zoolock with a perfect curve who wins turn 4 or 5 which causes me to almost throw my phone out the window. If I play some other deck that I don't enjoy as much but need for a daily quest, I get a mirror match.

I've had it happen 3-4 times in a row which feels really weird. I'll play like trap hunter, dragon priest, healadin, and C'thun druid and somehow get a mirror match on every one.

It's great! I can do like 10 comment replies in the time it takes my opponent to decide whether to Armour Up! or Shield Block.

I have to say my dragon priest list is doing amazingly well. its almost a copy of this sites list only with some holy nova's thrown in.

other than that I'm playing taunt warrior, jade druid, jade/deathrattle rogue and secret mage.

I can advise most of those in general but only the priest and mage seem to hold up against pirate warriors,

its all about saving your removal for the right minions.

 

my meta (lower ranks on EU) seems to be mostly jade druids, some mages and ofc pirate warriors. Im also seeing evolve shamans and taunt warriors. and the occasional renolock.

I'm playing removal Priest, it's great. I just sit there and remove everything they play until we fatigue.

Sometimes I wonder which is the worst between aggro and this.

I've played this before prior to the new set.  Wasn't entirely viable.  Had it's moments and some games where I'm sure my opponent went mad.  But more often than not I didn't have the necessary card, or too many minions with 4 Attack were present.  There are a few new cards that may make this a bit more entertaining.  Still tough against aggro though, just too many minons to try to deal with.

I had a "So today" element the day before yesterday and today.

On Tuesday I was on rank 6, then I managed to drop down to rank 9 in around 2 hours. With an incredible score of 1:14.

And today I climbed from rank 8 to rank 5 with 13:2.

Same deck.

But on tuesday lot's of pirate warriors (I play midrange Shaman and loose more games vs pirate warrior then I win), today just one.

Been having pretty good luck with reno priest.  I only really ever lose if I can't answer a frothing berserker, or unlucky mulligans.

I generally play one deck every season (different deck every season but I don't generally switch halfway through), reno mage right now, and I just got queued up against the same player twice who plays one of the greediest reno lock lists I have ever seen (Blast Crystal, Rag, Combo, Jaraxxus, the whole nine miles).  Just sort of made me really salty.  Like what sort of moron plays a deck that greedy in an aggro meta?  I mean he got rewarded for it since he queued into me twice, but still, I just hate it when people make stupid decisions and they are rewarded for it.

Calling a person a moron is not the nicest thing to do. He may practice the deck against unfavourable match ups, he may don't care about ladder position and play this deck because he finds it fun.

      This post will be mostly a rant and then a question. 
      Question first:
      Is there any more I can do to boost my Bad Luck Protection and get my next leggo ? (Velens, HPriest Ring and Cloak remain)
       
      My Pain:
      After getting my 7th stupid non-BiS leggo, Maze's Unwavering Will, I felt that I might actually have a chance at getting the sacred Cloak of Infinite Parse (Hnnnnggg). 
      So this past week I farmed...a lot (well a lot for me). It was Memorial Day weekend so I had ample time to do: 
      Emisarrys, Mythic World Tour, Mythic + (11 and then a bunch of random keys), Nether Portal Farm, all the Wyrmtonuge caches I could grab while portal farming, RBG daily for the AP, Raids, (LFR, Norm, Heroic of all the raids, and mythic of En and one boss in NH). 
      Feeling confident that I would get a leggo any day now  I grabbed my mythic cache yesterday hoping for one. Sadly, no leggo.
      So I go back to the grind and start doing the Broken Shore WQ. See a rare boss is up. Kill it. Loot.... (Cue Metal Gear Solid guard alert sound) ORANGE TEXT! oh my go..Amani's Cord of Hope... -_- :'( . 
      Cue guild trolling and me hating my life.
      Bliz pls. Y u do this?
      So now here I am, almost 12 hours later, feeling pretty down about it l that I "wasted" my time and still no payoff besides 1.9 billion AP. 
      Please help me farm legendaries faster. Tips are appreciated. 
      Signed,
      Septuagint, the Broken

      I have noticed something disturbing at my Garrison in Draenor since reaching level 110 in Legion....
      That is that the follower missions available at your Garrison are now having item level requirements to do, and there does not appear to be any way to increase your follower's item levels besides doing quests that have a high item level requirement. It is like Blizzard is saying, in order to get this, you have to complete that, but in order to attempt that, you have to already have this?? Is this a catch 22, or is it just me??
      So, my question is whether there is any other way to increase the item level of your followers in the garrison besides the quests?? PLEASE clarify, and THANKS in advance!!

      so ive been wanting to play arms more than fury in mythic plus  but when i simed my self it said i should be doing 400k while i only do around 300k average ( dungeon) ik this might be for a raid but either way its no where close to 400k . 
      armory : http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/shuhalo/Slipknöt/simple
      i find myself at a lack of procs for CS and stuck with no rage while everyone  else in the group is doing damage while im just sitting there waiting on a meele swing

      My raid member is having issues doing reasonable DPS as a Fire Mage and I lack the knowledge to help him.
      His armory http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/kelthuzad/Capitano/simple
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fFkKYDqMZ981XPRh/#type=damage-done&source=10 I didn't specifically choose Ursoc I just feel that it is a good baseline of what he does with minimum movement.
      I can get more details from him if required. He is getting mad at himself for not understanding what he is doing wrong. And my knowledge of classes stop outside of melee.
