Trying to break out as an RDruid

05 November 2013 - 12:20 AM

Hey everyone at ArenaJunkies.  I just got back into the game around 2 weeks ago and I've been trying adamantly to find people to play with to get back into 2k CR.  I'm sure there are many of you that share the same gripes as me, such as trying to find players that are around your skill level or finding players dedicated enough to progress with you even if you guys may not be similarly skilled.  I find that it's even tougher as a healer, since the win condition of the game lies in the hands of your dps (I'm speaking mainly in the context of 3v3 arenas, which I prefer to play).

I was able to get my 2k achievement in 2s/3s back in s12, and in 3s, it was quite the cakewalk as my DPS had awesome synergy and we cruised to 2k (WMD).  Unfortunately, I have not been able to find DPS with that kind of synergy.  It seems as if it was by luck I was able to find not only competent players, but players that work well with each other.  Trade chat is hit or miss, most of the times it's a miss and it really begins to take a toll on you as a healer when you go oom every game trying to heal while we have no pressure.

That's not to say I'm playing perfect--I've got quite a lot of things to work on.  But I feel that in my play environment, I could be at a higher level--I just haven't got the players to show it.  Basically I'm looking for some advice on how I can break out as a restoration Druid.  I'm currently sitting at around 1815 CR (I've lost 100 points over the course of a couple of days).  I try to play as much as I can to get practice, but it doesn't feel like good practice when my DPS cannot coordinate well or we cannot get pressure.  At this point, I don't know if it's worth it to just continue spamming games at 1700 MMR or wait long hours for players I've got on my friend's list who I've added because we did decent in the string of games we played.

Also, I'm wondering if there's a considerable difference between Horde and Alliance in terms of PvP.  I do have two druids, both Alliance, and I'm wondering if I should transfer one over to Horde.  I appreciate your replies; thanks in advanced!
