#4617517 Disc Comps or Re-roll Shadow?

Posted by Ac1019 on 18 November 2016 - 08:28 PM

Okay... so i never said disc was terrible. 

I happen to really like disc. I've stuck around every year playing it. Even when it was complete garbage at the start of cata.

I'm really just looking for composition suggestions that are proven to work. I know RMP is very viable because it leaves room for the priest to actually play. I didn't expect this to turn into a shit talk the class discussion lol. 

I just have a lackluster pool of people to play with right now so RMP is kind of out of the question.

#3656998 Worth coming back?

Posted by Ac1019 on 05 March 2012 - 10:11 PM

I stopped playing about 6 months ago and from what I've read the game seems to be fairly similar to when I left. I'm only interested in arena and was just wondering how the remaining few enjoy it. How is this season in terms of balance? Also, if I do come back I have a choice to play: Paladin, Shaman, Hunter, Warlock, Rogue. Would you suggest one of the classes in particular?

:rogue: :shaman: :warlock:

#3566200 How to handle pressure as priest

Posted by Ac1019 on 29 November 2011 - 02:29 PM

If i'm getting zerged by melee (TSG):
(Make sure you're in Inner Fire obvs)

As soon as they start running to you and right before they connect, pop PW: Barrier for the 25% damage reduction, you won't be able to cast it later in the game, or it'll be really hard if they're on top of you the whole time.

Make sure you save your trinket for strangulate if they throwdown first, otherwise its gg for the most part.

Pain Suppression after barrier is down, the meanwhile your teammates are peeling for you or trying.

PI + Inner Focus out of the throwdown to top yourself off, if possible, in an attempt to immune strangulate. Try to save Desperate Prayer for after the strangulate to pull yourself up again.

Also, make sure you use your 4pc set bonus wisely. Obviously you'll want to have close to 100% uptime on your PW: Shields, but try to use the 4pc to kite through the desecration, hamstrings, etc. while your teammates are peeling for you and attempting to get a kill.

+rep if helped. B)

#3553850 BGs now give 100 conquest points with no limit

Posted by Ac1019 on 18 November 2011 - 12:24 PM

Not like it makes much of a difference, anyway.
People who have a 1350 cap will just get their pts from BG's as opposed to being farmed in 2v2.

#3536224 Is overall participation down?

Posted by Ac1019 on 02 November 2011 - 11:50 AM

Not being able to obtain rating has a gigantic effect on participation.

It ripples down to every bracket. If it's hard for 2700 players to get back to their rating because of the clog of r1 at 2300-2500, then the 2300-2500s are dominated, and then the teams that belong there are stuck, and it goes down.

I mean on Ruin if I queue above 2200 mmr, I'm generally playing against multi glads every game because everyone is just team hopping.


Queue on my main at 2300 bracket on BG9 and all i queue into is r1 and multi-glads.
I feel bad for all the poor people actually trying to push 2200 =X

#3527705 MLS losing to hunter team on dalaran arena

Posted by Ac1019 on 24 October 2011 - 08:01 AM

Ya I think people are hating on Pookz too much as well.. That series (MLS mirror) was so damn close that really there were only a couple mistakes that made up for each loss, that series played 100 times over again would probably go 50/50

I was in my friends hotel room showering so i missed the mirror, but i pretty much watched every other single match. Team EG should have one, but they made silly mistakes.

DruidHausen is disgusting. If Skill Capped has that shaman, they would have won the tourney hands down. We nicknamed him "Druidhaus the Legend" lulz. :lol:

#3522724 [Priest] Playstyle question

Posted by Ac1019 on 21 October 2011 - 12:47 AM

I'm pretty new to a priest in PvP, as started priest in LK and it was a PvE only toy, now that i'm not interested in PvE any more this is my PvP toy, and i like it more than other characters. Since i'm quite new to priest in PvP in general it is obvious that arenas are also new for me as priest (was playing resto druid in arenas before and now playing as discipline). I have a couple of problems that i can't find a way out by myself.

Problem number one is DK/feral. If my team mate is in any sort of CC and DK/feral is running towards me to roll over my face it is pretty hard to get rid of them and they eventually just kill me. Ferals are slightly easier to handle, but still their damage is quite high. Is there a way to somehow survive that pressure? Ofc i use all defensive cooldowns but they just delay my death by a couple of seconds only.

Another problem - mages. I know that they are sort of designed to be that annoying, but how should i play against mages. If i stand behind the pillar to avoid a cc they are gradually killing my teammate, if i heal too much i turn into monkey/penguin/sheep immediately which makes it even easier for them to kill my team mate.

I am playing arenas with warlock, it seems to be more or less playable composition although we share DR on our CC, but as he plays Destro for the moment so we have at least a stun and a succub seducing one of the enemies.

1). Feral/Dk - Ebola, is the most retarded comp to try to live through as a priest. If you're playing any comp with very low "CC" ouput, you most likely are going to die because of the inability to peel for you. When I vs an Ebola cleave, the first thing i do in arena is swap to inner fire, then scream at my team mates to CC the fuck out of the DK before he makes his way over to me.

If you're playing with a mage get him to run out and nova the dk to stop him from getting to you and you guys should probably open on him really hard. In your warlock case... i guess shadowfury asap.

Any other class, just open immediately (or sap) to prevent your death. Like you said you can heal through the feral himself.

Make sure you're out of range so he can't grip you in as well. Hopefully your teammates can get him to trinket/ams so that you can full fear or something later on.

Worst case scenario: they both connect on you and your partners are unable to peel. Pop Pain Suppression at 100% along with PoM, Renew.

Using Inner Focus (Strength of Soul), Power Infusion, PW:S (freedom), trinket, can GREATLY affect your chances of living.

  • PS @ 100% w/ PW:S
  • Trinket MAIM
  • Immediately Pop Inner Focus (to immune STRANGULATE)
  • Flash Heal to Full w/ or w/o Power Infusion
  • Re-shield yourself for the freedom buff to gtfo.

    If the DK is smart he might not STRANGULATE you during your inner focus or he'll strang first, in which case wait it out. If a DK STRANGs me first I typically just shadowmeld to kill time while my Pain Sup is up. And then I'll Inner Focus the interrupts with Power Infusion and save my trinket for something else important.

    Also make sure you use your Barrier once your Pain Suppression is down to prolong your death as much as possible. If you have to sit a STRANGULATE make sure you pop Desperate Prayer to pull yourself back up out of it.

    xP hope i helped a little... with that one. Cooldown management is ridiculously important vs that comp and any melee cleave tbh, but sometimes you really are just going to die (unless they're half retarded) depending on your comp).

    2). Mage Problems - You realize you can SW:D polymorphs correct? See the macro part of the forum to get a SW:D macro that suits your play style. The "friendly fire" damage from SW:D will break enemy CC's that break on damage. Ex) Blind, Gouge, Poly, Repentance, Scatter Shot, Seduce, and more if cast immediately before the specified CC goes out. Its hard to perfect.

    Making sure to keep as much LoS as possible to avoid as much CC as possible is always good, but don't be afraid to cast. Just be sure to juke incoming counterspells. Also, keep your instants up at all times so that even when you're not casting heals you're healing your partner(s).

    To offensively screw a mage be sure to dispel his Frost Barrier for max damage! Lol.

    As for your composition. Disc Priest / Warlock is playable, but Destruction is not enitrely viable this season. I suggest Affliction if you want to get better. It's easily countered, though. There's much better comps out there for 2v2.

    I will say Shadowpriest / Warlock goes VERY well together :)!

    +Rep if i helped and let me know if you got anymore questions.
