Only ran a few due to restrictions on available comps.

Feral Warrior Druid was surprisingly good. Any cleave I played seemed decent actually, since you can't really burst anything down atm. On PTR most every Druid has the new talent where they heal everything around them nonstop. NPCs, random people in town, EVERYTHING. Even with my healer CCd I felt really safe with both Druid's talents and 2nd Wind.

Warrior thread, but yeah this comp actually worked before the resil buff. Damage is pretty low now and they don't randomly kill you when Tiger Eye buff goes up.

Also, any Spread damage comp is decent. If you've every faced a DK who had twice everyone else's damage and half of it was diseases, that's basically Warriors and Deep Wounds on PTR.

Best will probably be TSG after DK buffs, KFC (Hunters still good despite lots of nerfs), and WLD.

Definitely going to try to play as much WLD as possible taking Bloodbath, plus the deep wounds buffs.  WMD will probably be really strong too with poly+clone and warrior putting out so much pressure this coming season.  KFC will probably still be strong too, even though hunters are a little weaker(more balanced) on PTR as far as I've heard.  I also think running with an ele won't be too bad.

Don't know how strong kittycleave will be without instaclones but I assume the bleed damage will be very scary.  And with the new buffs to frost I imagine TSG is going to make a huge come back, but I'm going to try to avoid running it.  I hate charging something the same time my DK grips it.

Overall I think we have a decent amount of options as far as comps go and I think we will be at a lot better place in 3s than we were this season.

Any suggestions for Warrior/Disc/X, with X preferably being caster? What would work best next patch? Ele, frost mage, boomer, etc. Also what would work for melee? Kitty cleave > all, or does turbo have potential?

WMP will be king imo. Other decent options are:

war/mage/druid
war/lock/druid
war/ele/druid
war/sp/druid (sps do pro damage)
TSG
KFC
war/boomkin/x (ye i know)

I advise you to play with a caster since it tends to add longevity to the comp, which will be necessary (imo) given that caster cleaves will rise in the next patch. I don't really see how zerg cleaves (like KFC or TSG) will work out  with so many casters around.

I can see TSG doing good because those dk buffs were pretty good, on top of Arms big cleave damage plus having MSR to help keep healer outta cc. but zerg matches are pretty boring. I will probably run either KFC or WLD

Since the slam buff was pulled back a bit, nobody thinks they'll be gods. It's just exciting for warrios and those who enjoy playing with warriors, as it's been like 2-3 patches since they were good now. A nice, non-op but good comp I loved to watch back in Cata was War/mage/priest and I always love playing with good warriors. Haven't been able to do that in a while.

Shaman/Lock/X. Will probably run only exhaustive comps (Shadowplay/Shadowcleave) early season, and more later on.

My friends and me are planning to run Heal-Priest + Warri + X next patch. Could you guys give us some advice on:

1. What spec should the Heal-Priest run?

2. What is better as X: Elemental Shaman or Balance Druid?

I really appreciate your help.

Best regards,

No. They wont. I know you want to think that but they aren't going to be the best melee.

Well, we definitely aren't best melee, that is, as always, reserved for dks. Rets are also strong but DKs are retarded. Healing has been nerfed by battle fatigue but has necrotic been nerfed to compensate, absolutely not :P

Only thing I've lost to at over 2.2 mmr on ptr in 2s is dk priest.

We are good though, personally I'm going to run WMS or WPS next season, mainly because I know a really good shaman. Just gone 11-1 at 2.2 mmr on ptr as WMS and beat some fairly decent teams. Had a bit of a blip vs an RMD who outplayed us like crazy..but that was player error not comp fail.

All in all I think we'll be pretty good next season within a fair shout of getting in all of our best setups.

Faced WLP a couple of times at relatively high rating too, that seemed to work although we did beat them.

My 2s Holy Paladin buddy has his cousin xfering to our server to do 3s with.  Problem is he's best on his Rogue.  May wing it anyway, War/Rogue/HPal.  Probably not the best, but friends/fun > strangers/goodcomp.

I've tried:
- shatterplay (was really good, shadowpriest and mage are do perfect / really good damage)
- rmp (is decent, can be really good if played perfectly)
- shadowcleave (looks like the comp with the most overall damage, consider everyone dying at one point)
- thugcleave (not that great but not bad either -- hard to tell if its good or bad..)

So far my 5.4 PTR experience.
I've met comps like:
- warrior/priest/mage ~ even it was said it was good above, It wasn't when I met them (met venruki). Shatterplay > that comp by far.
- rmp (rmp is rmp)
- wld (seems good!)
- KFC (seems okey, but i would trade the hunter for something else if i played warrior xD)
- warrior/sp/healer (really good)

others wern't worth mentioning aka PTR crap (double warlock / x) etc..

edit: rofl I didnt saw it was a warrior thread. Makes this post kinda worthless :D well warrior/sp/healer was good ;D
