Posted 18 June 2011 - 05:13 AM

I recently started PvPing on my PvE Main (Resto Shaman), and I'm finding in full Bloodthirsty gear with 3.5k resilience that even if I manage to fakecast against a Deathknight, Warrior, Feral Druid or Rogue I just die to the fact that they can circumvent the fakecast with stuns, silences, (death grip in the case of DKs).

I'm just curious if it's even worth it to fakecast and just try to hardcast at 100% hp against these "high damage" melee specs. I don't have any trouble against casters because for the large part I can stop a lot of their damage with Wind Shear/Grounding Totem and dispells, but melee just seem to roast me.

Any tips? :s

Well you can always eat a 4 seconds kick into a 5 second kidney shot and see how that works

well when you fake and they dont kick and you fake again and end up doing 0 healing then get strangulated, it's not worth it. lol.

I know you can ground Mind Freeze, but between Throwdown, DG, Strang, Pummel, Charge ... TSG just rapes me even if I do get past Pummel/MF :s

its worth it unless you are one of those people that likes to fake cast from 80% to 30% health then realize you have to cast then get locked out

My favorite part about Skull Bash is not using it and watching people fake cast all day :)

It really sucks to fake against DK's, kinda need to be aware of how high the necrotic stack is before you decide to juke further. If the DK just holds his interrupt and you juke like 4-5 times you're just gonna end up being dead anyway cause of necrotic :~) Btw 30% slower cast time on necrotic strike was totally needed
