Avatar - Bloodbath - Bladestorm ?

from 1on1 and 3v3 arena point of view . what do you guys think is the best?

I mean Bladestorm breaks roots and its also nice to use when your SS and Revenge are on CD . Its also on a short 1min cd
Bloodbath 1min CD aswell and decent dmg boost i think but is it really that much dmg? 30% of my dmg as a beed effect or just 30% of 1 SS as bleed? i dunno

Avatar is a juicy 20% dmg boost AND breaks roots like Bladestorm does. BUT its on a 3min CD .. this is a looooot imo

seems like these 3 talents make the most difference between glad warriors huh?


bloodbath is just too good, it stacks each time you do damage, on a 1 minute cd? yes plz

Bladestorm is useless and a waste of a talent. Play with a pally/hunter or go gnome. Better yet, do all three.

Bloodbath and avatar are based upon what kind of comp you're running and what kind of mood you're in

Running rot comps like WLD then bloodbath is most certainly better, but nearly every comp I've been playing recently I just go avatar and kill their healer in the opener. I'm sure it'll change a bit down the line, but honestly it's just preference.

Going to blizzcon looking for a fight is like going to the official wow arena forums for pvp advice :)

If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, bin Laden, and you, I would shoot you twice.

bro you got +rep'd by rapture...

Evening gents

Real man play arms! j/k

But I mean srsly after trying out arms in 3s skirmish as much as I can, my general feeling about arms is that we can still hope. Survival isn't really as bad as I expected with couple tweaks in the glyphs setting and it would also depend on the comp you play.

@Gforce

So I want to become invincible as Prot Warrior. Can you give me a stat priority? I'm talking about the hardest thing a man could hit.

My guess would be:

Bonus Armor > Str > Vers > Mast > Multi > Haste ?

Also, should I still be in Gladiator's Stance if I want to be THE TANKIEST in PVP? Is Defensive stance better?

DNADota, about the def stance:

Fun fact: Blizzard made all tanks take 50% more damage in PvP, however, this doesn’t apply to protection when in gladiator stance

Did heroic leap get about 10x buggier/less reliable on *any* nonflat terrain to anyone else, or am I just (more) terrible at placing it?

Oh, yeah, sorry I missed Stamina. Does it come after vers ??

Also I was thinking about Multi since it activates Blood Craze.

So I guess it should be more like:

Bonus Armor > Str > Stamina > Vers > Multi > Mast > Haste ?

- or -

Bonus Armor > Str > Vers > Stamina > Multi > Mast > Haste ?
