#3905563 Feral PvP Guide (5.3)

Posted Kerberus on 28 June 2013 - 07:32 PM

Hello there current and aspiring Furballs

Having observed the recent decline in numbers of active PvP'ers and after seeing a few posts (on the official forums) filled with basic questions about how to PvP as a Feral and never seeing an answer that really satisfied me, I've decided to write a fairly comprehensive Feral PvP Guide. This guide includes not only basic things like gearing, gemming and enchanting, it also takes a look at how to deal damage, feral gameplay in general and some other specifics.


I chose not to write it on the forums as spreading it elsewhere would have meant a lot of extra work and I wouldn't have been able to design it the way I wanted. Link to PDF:

https://jumpshare.co...7J5Eltihn565Av3 (updated to v1.4)

Hopefully, this guide will answer most of your questions regarding Feral PvP. Should you have more questions, have an idea on what else to include or would like to tell me how wrong I am on everything, feel free to reply to me here and I'll answer as best I can. I will try to keep it updated, be that for a new patch or inbetween.

Enjoy!

Well last season everyone complained about inactive ladders, now everyone whines as there are incentives to play. This very community gave the clear feedback that we want reasons to continue playing and not sit on rating.
How exactly is this supposed to make the ladders more active? (rating inflation+gear change)

-This will just make the ladders even more inactive, as there won't be any point in trying to get high ratings before the last 2 weeks of season because of rating inflation.
-People tend to get their cap from RBGs / 2v2. Having to play those 2 more will lead to less time available for 3v3 -> less activity in 3v3.

The solution to making the ladders more active is to merge the battlegroups and fix the queue system. Simple as that. If there are not many teams playing, how is a change on the rating system supposed to increase activity?

People tend to play arenas for fun. Not because they want to get the best possible gear and then stop. If the change goes live, you'll get the best possible gear maybe 1-2weeks before the season ends. How dumb is that? How can you even defend this change? If someone decides to sit on high rating, it's his own choice. They've propably played well to get that high, they have the right to hang around on that rating if they want to. They have the choice of camping for a title or the choice of playing for fun. It's their decision. Who are you to judge what they are supposed to do? From what I've heard, you've only got experience from the spectator side of arena. Sure, as a spectator you might think that this change brings more competition and action into arena. But it simply doesn't.

And what comes to boosting. The same people who bought the 2.2k boosts will just end up buying 2.4k 2.7k 3k 3.3k 3.6k 3.9k boosts etc. You really think this change will stop people from buying boosts?

Changing the rating system midseason would be dumb. Changing the rating system without testing the new system properly beforehand is even more dumb. The rating system has been changed a few times before, and every single time there were plenty of bugs and problems.

TLDR: The change would:
-lower overall arena activity
-remove competition from arena apart from last 2 weeks of season
-increase gear differences between players (There should be no gear differences in pvp expect for visual differences)
-make it mandatory to play RBGs if you don't want to fall too far from others on gear
-make gearing more than 1 alt pretty much impossible for normal people
-fuck up arena statistics (inbefore lolwhocares) Skilled 3.9k exp'd warrior LF team!11! etc. (atm it's pretty easy to check if people are terrible or not just by glancing through their achis / statistics / gems / enchants / reforges
-Won't affect the boosting business much of at all
-Current rating system is shit, but the change would make it even more shit.
-You are an idiot.

#3789629 BM Damage explanation

Posted GrieverZ on 12 October 2012 - 02:37 AM

Don't think anyone is defending BM, i sure as hell don't.

People are just pointing out the fact that most self righteous balance defenders aren't very vocal when their own class is at the top tough and its true. Can't blame people for being bitter towards hypocrisy considering how many times Warlocks and Rogues for example told people to learn to play in cata, for example.

Btw, rating/title bashing and ad-hominems are just as dumb as class bashing and brings nothing to the table, might want to start doing what you preach before blaming others for being whats wrong with these forums

What about weapons? Will there be any available for honor or we have to farm HCs to get any advantage?

Theres a blue set weapon that wil be available. "Dreadful" Gladiator is the set name for the blue honor gear. (yes there will be an honor blue set which releases tues if im not mistaken)
There are specific weapons that go with this set, however getting a 5 man heroic wep can still be beneficial if you wish to jump right into arena come tuesday.
