I'm starting a rating-push 3s with my buddies' Aff lock and Hpal and wanted to get some input for strats for our comp. I'm posting in the druid forums because I'd like some feedback centered around what I can do, as a feral druid, to best benefit our team.
After taking-into practice all the advice I get here, I plan to record/stream and post our experiences in the vid forum for further critiqueing on our play as a team rather than just me.
Quick Background on Me:
I've played since vanilla, mostly BC and beyond. Most of my pvp has been casual RBG and arena pushes to 2.2k or less on either UH DK or Enh Shammy. This is my first season for both A) maining a druid and B ) planning to make a serious push into the 2.5k + realm in 3s (I'd like RBGs too but nobody will take kitties to those). With that said, I'm neither a stranger to the other classes nor an expert on them.
My lock friend has typically played disc but swapped to affliction lock and has taken a strong fondness to the playstyle. She is quite proficient at the class/spec but hasn't yet mastered it, much like myself playing feral.
My Hpally friend has mained hpally in WotLK and Cata in both PvP and raiding and is highly skilled and comfortable with the play style.
The three of us have played together since Wrath in raids and PvP alike (2s, 3s and RBGs) and already have a baseline synergy to our playstyle.
So far, I've put into practice not going full-tilt in the opener (with some exceptions that require a fast, hard kill) and rather saving the "one-shot" macro for when my lock has full dots up and is ready to drop SB-Haunt on our kill target; we line-up the kitty CDs with SB-Haunt, Dark Soul, and Drain Soul. We've discovered a great deal of flexibility exists with "split dps'ing" due to the strength of lock dots and have, on occasions where the opposing healer is quite strong/good, compound dots with spread bleeds. Our ventures haven't taken us past the 1.2k mark due to inconsistant healer presence and a very casual attitude as we wait for our Hpal to get to 100.
Anything else you'd like to know to help you, help me, just ask!
**EDIT** My toon is Halden - Firetree (US). Proxy settings here at work won't allow me to link my bnet account right now, I'll do that once I get home.
