Rextroy Reaches 2.4K Rating with Broken Arena Composition

Recommended Posts


Rextroy is back with a new video and an unusual Arena composition build around damage reduction that helps him easily reach 2.4K MMR.

Background Information

Today, we are going to destroy the ladder with a most unusual comp, Protection Warrior / Unholy Death Knight! We already pushed 2k back in the day when Shield Slam was one shotting people, but that has been fixed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F9uv...

So now we are instead going for defense, and that is leading us all the way to 2.5k MMR! Easily obtaining the Elite achievement.

The thing that makes it so powerful, is thanks to the DK / Warrior synergy. Death Knight is insanely strong against magic, thanks to anti-magic shell, zone, and spellwarding. As well as having solid healing with Death Strike.

However Death Knight is weak to most physical comps, but thanks to having a Protection Warrior partner, we bring DKs lots of damage reduction!

Such as a permanent 40% with Bodyguard BodyguardIt feeds us with shield slam procs as well, which makes our DMG almost as high as our partner's in certain cases... It will also break us out of any CC, thanks to the damage being transferred to us.

This will shut down most rogue comps, as well as hunter and mages.

We got Demoralizing Shout, which is a 25% dmg reduction for 8 seconds, every 30 seconds! Thanks to Morale Killer Morale Killer PvP talent.

We also got 2 charges on Shield Wall, which is given to our party members at 50% effectiveness thanks to the legendary Unbreakable Will Unbreakable Will.

Lastly, if we want even more defense, we got a 15% damage reduction debuff on an enemy, with almost permanent uptime - Shield Bash Shield Bash

Talents for Warriors

As stated in the video, here is a short overview of talents!

First Row - Devastator if the enemy attacks you, or if you are unsure. Otherwise Punish (20% Shield slam DMG) is good for our teammate.

Second - I go with Double time for movement, but the best one would be Storm Bolt in most cases, a stun is handy.

Third - Booming Voice Overall good for dmg and rage gain (which is survival).

Fourth - Crackling against stealthers for the opener, Bounding Stride otherwise.

Fifth - Indomitable is best so we don't die in a stun, also really solid healing, Impending Victory is interesting and could be good if you aren't afraid to die in a stun.

Sixth - Into the Fray / Ravager are both solid choices. Into the Fray especially since DK pets will add to the buff.

Seventh - Anger management is best overall, Bolster can make some fun burst DMG, however.


Morale Killer (always)

Bodyguard (not against pure magic, then go with the other 3)

Shield Bash OR Sword and Board (if you want defense or DMG)

As for Death Knight, I don't have space to write it all out, but Ipanic usually stays with the same talents as his armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/cha...

Some changes are Necrotic Aura VS Spellwarding if he wants survival or not Abomination instead of Necrotic Wounds against Rogue / Mage to find the rogue. Against Rogue / Healer he usually goes abomination, Necrotic Aura, and Wounds.

I have not tried this comp in 3v3 but could be insane with a healer since you are immune to CC and have so many defenses to give our teammates.

You can watch the Protection Warrior and Unholy Death Knight Arena combo in the video below.

      You can purchase Tuskarr-themed backpacks in Azure Span in Dragonflight.
      A single item costs 400 Dragon Isles Supplies, a currency gained from assisting friendly factions of the Dragon Isles in their fight against the Primalists. You must reach a certain Renown rank to buy the backpacks. 
      The items can be purchased from Tiktukk (28.67 34.32) in Azure Span.

      Merithra, Ysera's daughter, has a new Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion and it turns out it's not her but Ysera depicted in the loading screen.
      In the Dragonflight loading screen, we see the four dragon aspects, namely Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Kalecgos, and Ysera, not her daughter Merithra as I had initially anticipated.

      Merithra has a Night Elf Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion, which does not line up with the Elf we see on the Dragonflight loading screen.

      You can read more about Ysera in Dragonflight here. Please note the post contains major spoilers that were not available for testing on the Beta because Blizzard most likely wants to hide portions of the story from players, just like they did with Calia Menethil.
      Back in August, we covered a mysterious empty area on the map of the Dragon Isles. For further reading on Ysera in Dragonflight, you may also want to read the following post.

      You can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts in Dragonflight even if you can't use that armor type, but this does seem to be currently limited to Dragonflight ensembles.
      MrGM discovered that you can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts on a single character. Let's say you main a Priest (Cloth Wearer), but would like a Dragonflight ensemble for your Death Knight (Plate Wearer). With the new change, your Priest can buy and learn the Death Knight ensemble (set appearance) and your Death Knight can wear it.
      Placeholder for tweet 1573326601122717699 However, the change does not appear to retroactively apply to older ensembles.

      Madam Goya and her Black Market Auction House return in Dragonflight with two new locations!
      The Waking Shores Black Market Auction House Location
      The first BMAH is easily accessible in the first Dragon Isles zone -- the Waking Shores. However, you can only browse auctions here, you cannot bid on items.

      Take the flight point to Obsidian Bulwark and head straight to Steelsage Gao located at 43.08 67.43. 

      Thaldraszus BMAH Location
      The second location is just outside Valdrakken, the main city in Thaldraszus. Go to Little Scales Daycare (10.57.51) and jump down as shown in the screenshot.

      You will now be just outside of the entrance to the Black Market Auction House in an area called The Petitioner's Concourse (34.66, 60.50).

      Inside, you'll see Madam Goya and Mister Chu, her loyal guardian. Here, you can also bid on auctions.
