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

      As the title says, I've finally rolled a Tank and opted for a class I've always wanted to play; the Druid. Coming from a Shaman and Paladin that has done a lot of both Resto and DPS I felt it is time to try the other side!
      I have never tanked before...I was going to queue up for my first ever dungeon run but chickened out. I don't want to make a mess of it first time out before talking to some of you that have been here before. I'm still VERY low level...hit 18 last night while questing. Basic gear but have money from other toons if needed for gear.
      My questions are...when did some of you start your first tanking experience? Is gear at that low level of any importance or is everything pretty forgiving your first few times out so you can get an idea of rotation and how things work? Anybody have a few wipes on their first time out? Any advice for my first time out?
      Appreciate the hell out of the help! Thanks in advance and hopefully tonight I can partition off some time to get my first dungeon run in! I'm back after playing through until Cataclysm so it has been fun seeing all the new things added...a 6 year hiatus is quite a long time!

      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 battletags: 
      Stjern#2802 or Azkey#21565
