After staying up for 3 hours and working on my 3s team, I'm officially at a lost of what combo to do in any of my brackets. Baelgun has nothing (relatively) in the way of good arena players to choose from, so my choices are very limited. Currently I'm trying sh. priest rogue (and have been for a while), but I just can't get above the mark. Of course the rogues don't have my gear either. 3s we tried tonight as resto druid, rogue, sh. priest to no avail. 5s I'm doing as sh. priest double bm hunter, resto shaman, resto druid which I got above 2k last season. Basically I'm sick of being a nelf sh. priest and was wondering if there are any other nelf sh. priests with my gear or better willing to give any advice. The only shadow priests I've personally seen above 2k in any bracket are something other than nelf. Do I suck, or is it my pathetic racials combined with a difficult class to play in arena?

So after viewing your rogue. No wonder you're above 2k . . . I lack a rogue with the gear of yours (pve) with the talent needed. I'm at a crossroads. That extra dps does everything to getting that one guy down in 2s.

How so? I'm dead serious . . . show me one above 2k in every bracket. 2s sure . . . combined with a very well geared rogue that's fine (which I don't have). 5s even . . . with our makeshift group we make do. But show me one in the world above 2k in every bracket and I'll gain some hope.

As to the statement concerning why so few play it. It's because it sucks. Plain and simple, I know I'm not the best nelf sh. priest out there, but I consider myself to be skilled. The racials lack and arena can be a win or loss depending on racials. I'd love to see one that exists.

My last post before I pass out from sleep deprivation. After looking at these people all I can say is great job. I think it involves a lot of skill (and gear). The gear part my partners lack in, and I don't assume I'll be getting up high any time soon. I've resorted myself to no chance on the baelgun server. I feel like the only possibility is if I get on a server with more than 1 guild with BT on farm :/. Thanks for the heads up on the people . . . if anyone else knows of any . . . or has great advice, I'd love to hear it.

i pvp'd with 4 different rogues this season 2 have been full pvp, 1 full pve gear, and 1 in kara epics and we broke 205 comfortably. We could easily break 2k in 5's if i had a mage to play with zzz. and 3's well 3's its a pain to get a resto shaman that wants to heal clothies

So I'm assuming you would do rogue resto shaman sh. priest for 3s? Then you would do mage, rogue, sh. priest, druid, lock for 5s? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Oh and 134-93 in 2s isn't comfortable in my book. That's a 59% winning percentage . . . seems like you have your trouble at times.

So transfer. I've never even heard of Baelgun..

So if there was another team in which the player shared the same racials/skill as those in this one, but queue dodged dual undead (or anything else that puts them at a blatant disadvantage) and wound up with a more favorable ratio, would that make them better?

Of course they're going to have trouble at times; it's not a makeup without counters.

The SP in my 2s and 3s is a NELF.

Dunno why you're down on NELF priests, Shadowmeld is handy for not getting charged and staying out of combat so the Rogue can sap.

I'm pretty sure starshards and 20% melee dodge for 20 seconds are THE two best possible shadow priest racials. Undead is really the only shadow priest with better racials than you cause of WoTF
but one of their priest racials sucks ass. Night elf is the only priest where both racials are useful in 3/4 games.
