Help for some advice about comps

Hello everyone,

I am an "old" PVP player who started in Tyr's hand & BLK MT before MC/BWL raids.
Now a family guy, I mainly play arenas with an equally old-school IRL friend and we need help !

We have severals charcters and would like to crack some ratings in 2s. I have some Arena XP playing with pickups or temporary mates, but nothing fancy: 2k on rogue in 2s and 1k9 in 2/3s on a Rsham. My friend is a very good solo player but lacks experience in arenas and is just waiting for guidance.

Here are our characters

Me : Sub Rogue / UH DK / Rdrood & WW Monk (and a full 522 set if i have to switch MW)

My friend : UH DK / Hunter / WW Monk

We would like to create 3 different duos to play 2s and approach a 1k9 rating at first before aiming for more and enter the 3s serious business.

Apart from the obvious Rogue / Hunter combo (Sub/MM ?) what can we play with our character base ?


Thanks a lot guys !

RDruid + UH DK can be a very powerful combo.  Mobile healer w/ HotW burn capabilities, along with the most powerful PvP class currently available.  I've seen UH DKs Obliterate me for 120k+.

 

I'd do Sub / BM for your rogue/hunter combo.  It's lost a lot of it's power, but depending on the comps you play against, the short-term burst can mean more than the lasting power of MM or Surv.  Combined with a good stunlock + Smoke Bomb, and the double stealth opener, should have no problems.

 

Double WW monk can be annoying to play against, because of Touch of Karma.  UH DK / WW Monk may also be viable, exploiting your mobility, and WW's Storm Earth and Fire.

Unholy doesn't use Obliterate (Frost-Spec) , but Hybrys is right Rdruid+Uh DK is a very powerful comp. The DoT pressure from Uh is INSANE and the mobility of the druid is just that much more amazing. 

 

Also I'd advise against Uh/WW (its the comp i have the most experience with), until you are both really geared and the Uh is confident in his ability to survive (or i just can't play Uh ;P).

 

Hope this helps, Cheers Swift :D

Whichever their big hit is, it hits hard.  I don't know DKs. =(

If I was trying to push rating I'd use either RDruid/DK, RDruid/hunter, or rogue/hunter.

For the rogue/hunter I'd still use MM over BM because their upfront damage (auto-crit on aimed shot, then a followup chimera that might crit is an obscene amount of damage). That and SS...


I haven't really seen any other comp, but I haven't really played for a majority of the season and it doesn't seem like a huge amount has changed... but I may be wrong.

If your pushing rating in 2's personally I would prefer going with a healer (again my preference), but I think that Rdruid/MM would be your best bet. However just play whichever class you feel more comfortable with. In time you will learn your weaknesses and strengths (as well as your classes) and can continue off of that. 

 

Hope this helped, Cheers :D

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      2x Alleycat 1x Emerald Reaver 2x Fiery Bat 2x Fire Fly 2x Jeweled Macaw 2x Raptor Hatchling 1x Stampede 1x The Marsh Queen 2x Tracking 2x Crackling Razormaw 2x Scavenging Hyena 1x Deadly Shot 2x Kill Command 2x Stitched Tracker 1x Cult Master 2x Houndmaster 1x Tol'vir Warden 1x Tundra Rhino 1x Deathstalker Rexxar
      Here's my current take on the quest Hunter. Stitched Tracker and Build-A-Beast in my eyes have really given Hunter some good and greatly needed flexibility. The ability to create an extra Tol'vir Warden, Tundra Rhino, Hyena, or Cult Master, or any of the various 1 drops needed for the quest allow for a nice range of minions without having to worry about getting that one draw you need to combo. Build-A-Beast is such a fantastic ability and the AOE that Deathstalker Rexxar gives is a very welcome addition. While a little expensive Exploding Bloatbat + anything with charge, preferably a Boar, gives Hunter a nice suicide bomb. Alternatively Hyena + anything with Stealth is a great way to safely build up lethal, or a Stealth Rhino to consistently hurl charge raptors at your opponent's face.  

      This deck is by no means perfect, but it's a hell of a lot of fun to play in its current iteration. I'm open to any suggestions or criticisms about how to make this more viable.
