In Topic: human or dwarf?

Today, 12:54 PM

Well, playing a dwarf allows you to have a battlemaster AND stoneform. I am convinced that dwarf is the better choice for holy and human is the better choice for ret.

I just can't decide whether a human holy is better than a dwarf ret...

Yeah, that's what I thought.

I'll play both ret and holy and can't decide.

Does this math you propose factor in the extra dmg from PvP 4pc, potentially WoG glyph and the fact that unlike PvE, we also need HoPo to support heal in PvP?

I'm not 100 yet, but mainly to keep the thread going and to answer your most general question:

Play style? Is it, Play mostly support until wings and then go ham, then support then ham or just focus on dps the whole time?

You never play "mostly support" or "mostly dps". You go with the flow. Pretty much all your support is instant cast so just get macros for every partner and every support spell and just throw it over your shoulder whenever necessary while DPSing all the time. By throwing it over shoulder I literally mean don't even turn around, just press the button and get it over with.

The mistake most players make (and I do it all the damn time when I play my mage) is trying to do "important stuff" first and damage second. Screw that. You're the DPS, you do the damage. Damage equals pressure and pressure equals opportunities. Opportunities allow clever use of "important stuff" to win the game.

Maximize your damage first, and only use your support abilities in clutch moments. Try to never lose pressure. And when you lose it, try to reset. Don't just stand there healing and hoping that by some miracle, the opponents' keyboard will break in half and they lose momentum and allow you to recover.

So, to sum it up.

Go ham and then when an opportunity arises, pop wings and go EVEN MORE HAM!

my 2 cents:

Stats: haste until you stop feeling that you never have one of your HoPo builders ready when you want to use it, then mastery

That implies more haste in 2s, less in 3s where you spend more time using GCDs to support and there's a lot more CC going around, you only really do dmg and have full uptime during burst windows.

EmpSeals/FV: 2s with a healer against a dps/healer - ES; any other matchup - FV (maybe ES against teams that try to stomp the Ret, not quite sure it would make sense with being global starved while being focused and stunned); 3s - FV in cleaves definitely, ES in control comps, mostly FV, tho
