Help for some advice about comps

Recommended Posts

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

      Hey guys,
      my wife recently made my kul'tiran Monk into a custom playmobil figurine 😄
      Check out the video she made, and if you like, leave a comment. She would be very happy
      What do you guys think?
      Any ideas what character would look good, made from playmobil?

      Hello everyone ! 🙂
      I recently return to BFA and i have a question about the hunter BM rotation. 
      My concern is about refresh Frenzy and cast "Kill command" on cooldown. Indeed, many times i have to face the dilemma to choose either loose my stacks of Freenzy or delay "Kill command".
      So is it worth to slighly delay "Kill command" in order to refresh Frenzy ?
      Sorry for my approximative english !

      <Fun is for Casuals> is a serious but casual horde guild on US-Hyjal. We are serious about raiding without the intense hours. Even when recruitment status is none, we will accept exceptional applications for all classes. For a full list of what we're looking for check out https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com . 
      Our raid times are Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00PM to 8:00PM server (PST) with raid invitations sent out a few minutes prior to that.

      We're interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      Raid attendance is essential. We don't want people sitting on the bench but we also want to make sure we're raiding 6 hours per week. We expect you to be available for at least 90% of our raids. Be on time and prepared for raids. This includes flasks and other consumables. Discord is mandatory and a working mic is desired. You're appropriately geared for our current content. Effort and thought have been put into your gear/gem/enchant choices. You wouldn't show up for a job interview looking like a scrub, why would you apply to a guild with improper gems or some insane spec? You're up to date with your class. We expect our raiders to perform to the best of their abilities. You have a computer that's not run with hamster power or requires a hand crank. Some encounters are taxing on a computer's resources so if your toon can't even handle Orgrimmar it's not likely to do well with 20+ whelps that need AOE'ing.
      You may be interested in us because:
      <Fun is for Casuals> uses the personal loot system. There is no loot council, or DKP. We won't eat your babies the first time you stand in something you have no business being in. Repeatedly do it and we'll break out the bibs and BBQ sauce. We provide a limited amount of consumables and flasks on hard mode raid nights. Discord isn't a circus during raids. We're focused on the job at hand and you should be too. We don't want someone to miss a an interrupt because they were distracted by fart jokes. We are not interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      You roll on BoE items then sell them. Unwilling/unable to spend an entire evening on one boss during progression. While this is rare, it can happen. Drama queens. If you have a problem bring it up to E. This is his job. Don't announce it in guild chat or during a raid. Your issue will have nothing to do with 99% of the guild. You are 17 or younger. We try to keep guild and discord chat PG-13 but occasionally a few four letter words appear out of nowhere. Additionally, we don't want someone's mom interrupting their raiding to get homework or the dishes done. Follow the instructions at https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com/ under the Recruitment tab if you would like to apply.
      If you have any question, feel free to contact E. at DbD#1309
