#4409540 DK/WW/Hpally - Correct playstyle

Posted Volkovitch on 14 April 2015 - 09:42 AM

Hello Dk,

1. What strategies do you use vs. RMD and Godcomp? Who to kill?

Vs RMD and godcomp you need play Unholy if you can, for a better survive. Vs Godcomp and RMD All target is good. You must switch and focus that you can. The Priority is your survive... It's not easy I know, but it's possible! If you want look punchcleave VS godcomp: GamerLeague Twitch Rediff tournaments games.
2. How do you position against the above teams and in general?

If you know use your deffensive CD, you can stay on mage/drood/Sp, but if you waste a big CD, you need kite on pillar. (With Unholy spe you can to have an insame liferegen).


3. When should the monk tunnel the healer with my me and when to split (example, vs WLS the monk likes to go on the warlock while me and his spirit tunnel the shaman.

You can split 3/4 of game vs warlock (affly), and switch for kill. Slip or not it's not a real problem.

4. Asphyxiate vs. Strangulate? Necrotic Plague vs Breath? Frost vs Unholy?

Asphyxiate 90% of time. Necrotic Plague, Just in frost for use Plague Leech. (You can play with Breath in frost for a big burst).
In Unholy, Only Breath, it's good for do a real burst.
You can play frost or Uh. Frost it's easy gameplay, and uh the game play that is spe less easy.

Sorry for my english, and good luck for your future arenas!





#4410960 PvP Q&A With Holinka

Ashran
"-One thing they are thinking about, is allowing you to cap your conquest just on asharn, but you would need to participate in all areas of asharan to achieve this."

Did anyone else see this? This might be one of the more terrifying things he mentioned! I'd rather que double the arenas I am now to cap than do Ashran at all. Even early season when I was gearing I used my free will to decide not to do Ashran because the extra conquest wasn't worth being in that place.

Can't we just go back to wintergrasp or just kill a boss.

#4407196 The Complete PvP Patch-

Posted Dills on 05 April 2015 - 11:05 PM

I dont think 12 second clone cd is the right change in all honesty. For the most part druids can spam clone so freely with mage druid because mages are so tanky and have nothing better to do than to spam cast sheeps all game, which in turn makes it so that whenever sheep is being rotated, rdruids can follow clone up after someones sheep dr ends. I don't think the real problem is the clone/sheep itself, it's moreso the fact that mages are extremely tanky and have nothing better to do than to spam sheep since their only real damage is ice nova (even lancing takes more set up than ice nova) and with druids having pretty good healing output as well, it just lets too many clones happen. However outside of mage druid it's a lot harder for druids to get clones off, so imo the better solution is nerfing things like flameglow/blazing speed and gutting ice nova and buffing either something like frostbolt/frostbomb to make those worthwhile to use over than just nonstop sheeping until nova is up (as well as constant clones to follow up)

I don't understand this excitation about playing Vanilla. Of course, it was a good new MMO back in the day, one of the first to be accessible to almost everyone. The problem is, i read lots of false facts about it, especially :

- It's a real mmo when you level up, you have to play with other people compared to now. False, false, false. You can have your level 60 character by playing alone, by doing 0 group quests or instances, just by doing normal quests. I did it, considering Shadowpriest was not really accepted for PvE because "mumumu, i prefer mage"

- It's rewarding. Rewarding for what? For having a 60 character? It was time-consuming, some classes were painful to level up (priest, warrior, paladin), other not (hunter, warlock, mage), PvE was extremly spec selective, time-consuming too (50% of the raid was farming your fire/nature/frost resistance, potions before, 15% of creating group+Going in the area - 40 peoples -, 15% of killing trash, 20% of killing bosses).
PvP was the same, people who play MORE was more rewarded, considering no inter-realm battleground and no desertor, you were facing the same team over and over after 20min waiting in Tyr's hand.

- "Questing" was not as easy as now. Really? Most of the people here don't read quests, of course it wasn't "easy". But if you did, it was as easy as now. If you really want some old school RPG with hard quests, just play Baldur's gate or Planescape Torment.

I loved Vanilla, but i would never play it again, even if it was free. (And people who know me know that i'm a jew about free things)

Oh, and about :

Also, WoTLK ( or well, S7/S8 ) is regarded as the best thing ever.

You should really try to search the old posts here about S7/S8, it's hilarious. :DDD

"Like the WoW PvP forums without the garbage." Heh

Just make legit vanilla realms already and be done with it, if not then sit there and watch your sub count drop

Here's the problem with that statement - I'm actually enjoying the game right now compared to Cata/MoP, for what it is - a casual MMO game which lets me casually play with my friends and be successful in it. I might be in the minority, but hear me out.

Regarding arena, sure, facing certain comps is fucking aids, however that's to be expected with this being a melee friendly season - in most cases it's a retarded melee cleave or RMD, in rare cases it's something like Demo LSD and Godcomp which managed to miss the memo about game being uber melee centric right now and wizardcleaves not being viable.

Now let's forget for a moment that Holinka feels like a incompetent guy that just got hired for publicity stunt ( "hi guys we have your pvp guy here" ), and that arena is not heading in the right direction - there's not been a last season of the expansion so far that has been worse than its first few. 6.2 for example HAS to bring certain adjustments to certain specs, maybe even return some of the purged abilities, not because of the PvP population but because the PvE population is whining about the lack of versatility they once had.

-------------------------

Regarding PvE content, I don't remember PvE being this good for a long while. I hated Cataclysm PvE content, I hated Mists of Pandaria PvE content. WoD PvE content is just fine.

I hate Garrisons, and I hate the fact that Blizzard is not forcing us to go into the world. But that's okay, because I only log for PvE and for arena. Seeing a person outdoors is the exception rather than the norm, and that's an aspect of the game I'd like to see them return - that's the ONLY aspect of the game that vanilla has over any other expansion, the rest of the game is fucking shit compared to now. Vanilla PvE is ten times worse, I'd cut my dick off before grinding ranks again, and collecting 900 gold for level 60 mount is aids as fuck.

If they made a Vanilla Server, then a WoTLK server, and just deleted whatever current expansion they were working on, I would continue to play the game.

Would you really ? I'm the first one on this forum to constantly talk how previous WoW's were better than whatever the current expansion is, but I wouldn't pay them a single penny to play vanilla again. I had my fun in vanilla, unlike most of you who are posting here, I started WoW back in 2004 on release on US realms when I was 14 and I played through entire vanilla as a hardcore raider and PvP'r. I dearly remember that time as I met a lot of awesome people ( I also remember a redneck we had in our raids that once had to AFK to help his mare give birth to a pony or something ), and enjoyed the great game WoW was. I'm the first one who will never play vanilla again - vanilla suffers from the ex syndrome.

Similarly, I had the most fun, PvP wise, in Wrath, and I'd NEVER play a progressive Wrath realm. S5 was fucking HORRIBLE, S6 was fucking HORRIBLE. S7 and S8 were fucking awesome, but mostly because of the people. Facing Hydra's RMP on stormscale on a team I'm boosting, learning a few new tricks that makes beating other RMP's a breeze, facing Barburas and learning how to beat other Warriors consistently. The community on Arenajunkies...


At one point you guys have to take your rose tinted glasses off.

I've posted maybe 2 weeks ago that Fury execute has to be bugged, to which our resident warrior Flavours replied that it's not.

So either it's intended that they're hitting me for 100k+ whenever RNG decides it's time to, or it's bugged as fuck. And to the rest of your claiming "peel", just fuck off and stop being biased basement dwelling cunts.

You all claim Mages are aids as fuck to play against, guess what - their damage and control is at least scripted as fuck, you know WHEN EXACTLY the cooldown on their damage is up and can plan according to it, RNG damage ( f.ex. Ele Shaman s8/s15 ) that randomly ends games is not fine at all.

and the fun part about mages is "you know when things are gonna happen but you can't do anything to prevent it  :) "

don't get me wrong.. you can interupt poly etc. but once they get a deep +poly/ring people are dying.... and it's not that hard to get off a deep-poly

Saw the video. A Fury Warrior Pops everything he has, and you don't stun him and your Mage doesn't block, even though you presumably know Priests have dog shit healing output. I think its perfectly acceptable for a really heavy burst focused meele spec to be able to kill a Mage in 3 hits if he uses everything he has and the Mage doesn't press anything. God knows Mages don't die outside of retarded burst windows like that.It was by no means the kinda of omgwtfburst damage like the famous Rositajones Feral gib. It was very predictable, a one time thing,and you guys didn't respect his 3 minute cool down with any hard cc or big defensives so you payed for it.

There are over a dozen different ways you could have lived but this thread isn't about how you didn't use one of your many outs but how you seem almost personally offended that your  Mage had to use one of his two  blocks. Plus you aren't exactly playing a fair spec or comp there buddy. It's hard to take this serious.

The fact that you're even trying to defend that damage is absurd at least I can admit to combat rogue being stupidly broken as fuck

??? dude if you took one look at his buff bars you would know what is going on

he has double weapon proc
he has reck up
he has avatar up
he has enrage proc
sudden death proc
his bloodthirst crit ontop of all this as eh charged when he opened
and you just sat in stealth and watched him kill your mage??

the next game he pops all his cd's (reck and avatar) when your mage is in hypo, and then you're all surprised he dies? like what

he literally in on full poly dr when he has reck, maybe your mage should be thinking before he polys random targets, or maybe you should be thinking before you spend your combat points, what was the point in doing damage to a hunter when your mage is in hypo and the warrior has reck up? you may aswell be afk hitting the hunter

your mage streamed yesterday and died in half the time that warrior killed him in to godcomp, but i guess that doesn't count because they're casters so it must have taken them mad skills

open your eyes dude, and the game will get alot easier, i mean when you where watching your mage die in stealth, what are you looking at? your mages health? it's clearly not the warriors buffs

oh and the difference between that and red spree, is that you can peel the warrior

those random s8 killings as ele only worked vs bad players who got caught in the middle with little awareness
I mean I remember getting a lot of them as an ele shaman, but vs the great players, it basically never happened. Considering all s8 ele shaman damage was casted and I mean ALL (literally casted more than basically any caster), I would say it was fairly telegraphed with all randomness being attributed to lightning overload, which couldn't even proc lava burst in wrath. Wasn't that post cata ele bs where eles run around spamming instant lava bursts and win the lottery.
do u get an e-mail or something whenever s8 gets mentioned on aj :confused:
