Tempo Swing Paladin Build

2 posts in this topic

Hi Guys!

I've only been playing Hearthsone for about 8 weeks. I've wasted a small fortune on sucking at Arena but it has given me a fairly reasonable collection. With a long history in social Magic the Gathering I thoroughly enjoy deck building. I have top tier builds for most classes and some very unorthodox alternatives.

I have built most netdeck versions of Paladin and have experimented with all sorts of styles. I've finally come up with a build that is not only fun to play but does suprisingly well against some of the power decks going around including Hunter, Handlock, Control Warrior, Ramp Duid and most definitely Priest. Mind you i'm ony at rank 13 smile.png

Anyhoo here's the build:

 

1 Abusive Sergeant x 2

1 Argent Squire x 2

2 Argent Protector x 2

2 Bloodsail Raider x 2

2 Echoing Ooze x 2

2 Ironbeak Owl x 2

2 Sword of Justice x 2

3 Aldor Peacekeeper x 2

3 Harvest Golem x 2

4 Truesilver Champion x 2

4 Consecration x 2

4 Dark Iron Dwarf x 2

4 Defender of Argus x 2

4 Dread Corsair x 2

5 Sludge Belcher x 2

 

Now this decks primary focus is to swing the board to your side. The use of sticky minions: Argent Squire, Echoing Ooze, Harvest Golem and Sludge Belcher allow you to maintain board presence.

Abusive Seargant, Sword of Justice, Dark Iron Dwarf and Defender of Argus allow your minions to trade above their weight much like Zoolock.

Enter the Pirates!! Dread Corsair requires either weapon in play and you end up with either a taunt 4/4 for 3 or a 3/3 for 0 and the Raider as a 4/4 or 6/3 for 2. It is this decks ability to gain significant value from its cards that allows it to maintain pace.

Sword of Justice also synergises with your stickies. Echoing Ooze gives you a 2/3 and a 3/4 for 2!!! Harvest Golem a 3/4 and a 3/2 for 3 biggrin.png Now thats serious vaue.

Now, what happens when you dont draw a weapon? This is where the tech cards come in. Argent Protector for efficient trading, Ironbeak Owl sorts out all the Deathrattle shenanigans, Aldor shuts down the bombs and Consecration, well it does what it does wink.png

So where's the draw card? Tried them all and the just get in the way. Besides, you should almost always have board advantage after turn 5. Of course this might be a bit late vs Zoo but  I've still won a couple.

Here's all the combo's:

SoJ + Raider/Ooze/Corsair or anything else for that matter even you hero power.

Truesilver + Corsair then Raider. Try this: 1st turn Squire, 2nd Ooze, 3rd Ring into Truesilver and drop 2 x 3/3 taunt, 4th drop a 6/3 Raider and give it divine shield!

Seargant/Dwarf/Defender + Protector lets you turn any minion into an immune battering ram. I do find you should only use Protectors on a creature attacking that turn.

I use the Peacekeepers on anything with enough power to kill my taunters.

You will find that once you have a weapon out you should be able to dominate the board in most games. Zoo can out rush you but thats why its number 1. Hunter can do fatal even when you have the board and I would love to throw in some Earthen Ring Farseers but cant find the room.

Oh and this build probably performs best with the Ring so Squire, Ooze n Raider may need to be priorities when going first.

All in all this decks ability to generate high value minions, trade above its weight and without loss, and tech around power cards (Owl n Peacekeeper vs Ragnaros) lets it dominate the board in most situations and is alot of fun to play biggrin.png

 

Would love to hear some feedback from anyone willing to give it a try.

 

Peace.

Right.

After another 15 games with only a 30% win rate, it has become blatantly obvious this deck struggles in the late game particularly due to lack of a draw engine. i dominated pretty much every game between turns 4-8 but if i wasnt able to deliver fatal then it petered out. Pallies lack of mid game draw and poor synergies with Acolyte of Pain and Cult Master make it very hard to maintain the rage. Dont think the new xpac will help this build either sad.png Still lolts of fun tho!

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/d3Qbkf6nqpoP4bxQ9YB2m
      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!
