(It was a ret word of glory, not hpal.)

And i don't want to be overpowered, i love casting 90% of my spells (It's actually disturbing, but surprisly fun :D), but we are not rewarded in WoD by casting, i just want to leave this awful state of :

"Change you class, Jimjim, create a shaman, claim your destiny..."
"And in what, Gul'dan, is this class better than mine?"

#4062419 Frost/Unholy 5.4.7 guide

Posted sarma on 23 February 2014 - 01:45 PM

DK frost guide (6.2) Dual wield

PvP Talents

Posted Image


Those are talents that I use as default in arena.

Level 15:
Plague leech is mandatory for frost. Refreshes 2 runes on demand shortens waiting time for swaps.

Level 30
Lichborne for both specs is most viable option as it provides fear break ,polymorph/sleep immunity. Amz is 3 sec duration with 20% reduction for quite some time making this talent totally useless in pvp ,
purgeatory on the other hand is something you can pick in case you end up meeting team that doesnt have warlock,warrior,shaman,mage,hunter or priest

Level 45
Aspxyxiate is mandatory talent , even it comps like tsg or smokecleave.

Level 60

Blood tap (no rng)

Level 75

death siphon is best option , provides best hps. Vs burstdown teams such as thug you can consider using pact instead


Level 90
Desecrated ground - Extra pvp trinket and best option in this tier

Gorefiend has usage in 5v5 and rbgs but for 2v2 and 3v3 its just not good enough

Remorseless winter is a pve ability and it has no use in arena games but
you can sometimes pick chillblains + remorseless winter as 5.4 strangulate is no longer on global cooldown so using strangulate+remorseless at same time on a shaman , priest or paladin healer will guarantee that rw stun will go off as they cant dispell/freedom stacks while they are silenced. Yet again if those healers are paired with enhancemet shaman , hunter , ww monk , or ret they can freedom their healers every time you silence+rw them making your RW useless.Also if mentioned healer is dwarf (most of them are nowdays) this combo doesnt work at all

Level 100
Necrotic plague - sindragosa is single target dps loss as from 6.2 froststike value for dw is much greater then it was before also it provides a bit more sustained dps output

You can pick defile if you are worried about your plague randomly breaking cc when you are playing smoke or any other comp with breakable cc



Glyphs

Prime Glyphs:

Frost :

Shifting presences - mandatory rp has great value for dw
Dark simulacrum - mandatory unless you meet mw/war/hunter for example
Runic power - mandatory since it provides enormous dps increasment
Icy touch - Good , but if you already have purge in your team consider using something else instead (dps loss)



Minor glyph :

-Glyph of resilient grip - mandatory

Enchants / Stats
General Priorities for Stats :


Frost :
Mastery > versatility > haste > ms > crit


Viable DK Comps
Dks are in pretty bad shape in mop and even worse in wod but you can still reach high ratings.
I recomed  tsg , smokecleave or shadowcleave



What rotation do you use in PvP?
There is no "specific" rotation in PvP. Have your rp on high levels while having atleast 4+ runes ready when you are bursting down kill target.

Addons:

I recomend getting magic runes but you can use this script if you dislike addons

/script RuneFrame:SetScale(2.0)
/run RuneFrame:SetPoint("top", 0, -325)

change values to move it where you want

-gladius or s arena or move anything to move your arena frames


Matchups comps and strats :

Tsg -



Defensive play : most important thing is to not overlap defensive cds with your healer or use them for nothing.Also make sure that you do not overextend too much and make your healer life impossible by doing so.

Have in mind that dmg from other team (even with strongest of strongest of cooldowns up means nothing if your healer is free to do his thing) Blood presence should keep you safe in those moments , and if your healer gets cc/locked you should consider using a cd on 70% + hp preferably

Offensive play - everytime you do grip>aspyx on enemy healer you need to force something big out of other team

Have high rp + atleast 4+ runes ready wait for km proc ,make sure your arms warrior is ready to burst (charge>cs ready) grip aspyx into dr stun (this should force big cds from other team all the time or you are doing something really really wrong)
Your monk should always incap target that can peel or offheal at this time


Rinse and repeat untill you win

Have in mind that dmg from your team (even with strongest of strongest of cooldowns up means nothing if enemy healer is free to do his thing) Kills should always happen during lockouts or if someone overextends with his pvp trinket on cd he can get hardswaped and die in 1 stun

Smokecleave :

Defensive play : most important thing is to not overlap defensive cds with your healer or use them for nothing.Also make sure that you do not overextend too much and make your healer life impossible by doing so.

Have in mind that dmg from other team (even with strongest of strongest of cooldowns up means nothing if your healer is free to do his thing) Blood presence should keep you safe in those moments , and if your healer gets cc/locked you should consider using a cd on 70% + hp preferably

Unlike tsg you can use your grip defensivly in smokecleave stopping that crucial deep>poly or else.



Offensive play :
- openers usually happen on healer and if you are doing your thing correctly you should force quite alot from enemy team from just opening
- Cross cc 1 target while you are bursting down so your rogue is free to do his thing , always follow up saps with your stuns > blind
- Before kidneys make sure you are on high rp and have atleast 4 runes ready , having km proc is a bonus.

Have in mind that dmg from your team (even with strongest of strongest of cooldowns up means nothing if enemy healer is free to do his thing) Kills should always happen during lockouts or in smokebomb if dps is without a trinket and no defensives he can use in stuns

#4081495 AAJCI: Week 1 - Discussion

Posted sarma on 16 March 2014 - 10:36 PM

Instead of making a new post ill just elaborate abit on topic that i made like 4 months ago regarding concerns and suggestions i had for wod. You will notice alot of things I mentioned here are already implemented.

1 . casters should cast again , instant casts should be rare
- they said it will be fixed in wod

2. castable CC spells should not be affected by haste or cast slow debuffs

- we are speaking about 15+% difference between starting and last season in xpac. Latency etc also has great impact here not everyone can play on 10ms. Way it is now it just promotes people to use interupt bots etc since 0.5 sec cast clones are impossible to kick with 50 latency. Kicking should be a mind game not way it is now either you prekick or you get a clone in your face with a kick on cd

Im pretty sure every caster can get 30% passive haste from gems and gear on end of xpac. Why should a fear poly or clone be 30% easier to get off on end of xpac then it is on start of it?

3. cast slow debuffs should be reduced to 10% in pvp or removed from game
- this went through already on live

4. all crits should be reduced to 150% of normal dmg in pvp
- they also implemented this in wod

5. Offensive cd stacking should no longer exist because all specs shoul have 1 offensive cd on 1-3 mins

We all seen how bad cd stacking was in mop. Doubt anyone will disagree on this one



6. Removed should remove blankets

- Already done for mop

7. Fear and poly should share same dr

-Some people would disagree on this one but way it is now its impossible to keep a fluent game with 8sec dispell. They can either put those spammable cc on same dr or add CD on them which is more likely.Either way i think this is going to be fixed somehow

8. Armor penetration should be removed from pvp or greatly nerfed

Example : sub dmg is really bad with no restealths and insanly good with openers. If openers can be countered rogue dps is laughable. This just provides frustration both for rogues and their enemies. If arpen is up to stay in pvp it should be no more then 30% for any class that use it. Compensate dmg elsewhere


9. Melle specials should no longer do 400% more then autoattacks do

-400% + dmg obliterate for example? You cant predict when its going to happen twice or 3 times in a row resulting in a 3 gcd death


10. Necrotic strike healing debuff should be based on weapon dmg not ap procs

I had said this million times so far. NS should no longer be based on attack power because it scales much better for unholy then for frost.Also with abusing of tailoring+orc racial+engineer gloves + trinket on proc it could skyrocket in s12 for example more then doubling the absorb of a normal ns.


11. frost strike , envenom , chimera shot and all hunters/melle dmg abilities that do non-physical dmg shold get scourge strike treatment

-Armor should matter in pvp. Nowdays it doesnt mean anything because of how those attacks i mentioned work.

12. mages,locks got some additional dmg reduction from ranged physical attacks

- I dont belive there is anyone here that thinks that hunters dmg on mages is fine.

13. They should reduced number of stuns each class have (example : shockwave and stormbolt in same tier)

-already done

14. They should reduce number of defensive cds for dps specs

-With removal of cd stacking defensive cds should chill as well. There is no reasoning behind resto druids have 8 major defensive cds they can rotate infinately. That is just an example


15. They should reduced healing of hybrid classes can do and they actually got some utility spells instead

Healing on hybrids is really bad thing. Either its too strong and promotes turtling or its too weak making those specs broken and weak.
Giving them more utility spells and limiting heals to minimum is a fair tradeoff i belive.
Example if a ret pally can do 1 instant flash every 30 seconds but that heal is like 20-30% of someone's hp thats ok.But then give them something else. Hand spells can actually harm instead of help etc.
I think that they can do this and keep niche of a certain spec but limmit it to couple 20-30 sec offheals. Please do not get me wrong! Im not saying that every hybrid spec should be the same or every ret should become arms war with 1 heal they can use every 30 sec on teammates.Im just saying that defensive healing hybrid with burst was proven to be bad. Its either op or really really weak.

16.They should reduced number of instant cc spells or put them on a very long cd.

They already making this happen

17.They should reduced frequency of instant heals , smartheals and their efficiency in pvp

This is also being done as i read.

18.They should reduce almost all self-freedom or snare removing mechanics undispelable snares should matter way more in pvp (chains of ice,hamstring,piercing howl,concussive shot)

This is crucial part. With dispell being 8 sec cd roots and magic slows are almost impossible to dispell.Magic slow should never be stronger then a non magic one. IT use to be that since day 1 of world of warcraft. Now magic slows are much better due to dispell change
Undispelable snares should matter way more then they are now.

19. They have to reduce number of all mini trinkets in game

CC is taking a big hit. Breaks have to do it as well.There is no need to have multiple trinkets if cc is reduced they way it is going to be


20. They should remove all double gap closer/excape spells

If they fix mobility and undispellable snares there is no reasoning to have multiple gapclosing or gapmaking spells. Melee will have uptime with only 1 gap closer and casters can kite with just 1 gap maker.


21. Agility and str should no longer provide parry/dodge for non tank specs. ****

This is crucial as well. Not a single melee is having fun hitting someone that has 20-50% passive parry or dodge on end of xpac.Its too much rng and with expertise being removed i dont see reasoning for this to stay. Mitigation is tank thing not dps thing. Evasion and other things are cds. Those should matter but passive mitigation should take a hit


22. Getting polyd with pummel on cd and spellreflect should not happen anymore
This is lattency issue but with longer casts and haste not affecting cc spells it should happen very very rare.

23. shapeshifts should no longer remove snare effects and provide  immunity against polymorph effects, resto druids can rootbreak but not snarebreak

Once again snares should be more important in pvp.Giving someone 30 sec minifreedom is ok even to every healer spec but total immunity or no cd removal of snares is just bad game mechanic in my oppinion.


24. Hunters cc is completly reworked they cant keep healer in cc 50% of arena game anymore

This is already being done but Im not quite happy how it looks for now as well

25. Tremor totem - See removal of minitrinkets tremor is one of them that needs to go or have a 3+ min cd

Ill also add a lis of spells and abilities that in my oppinion need a overhaul

-dematerialize
If they need some sort of stun protection they can give 10-30% reduced dmg in stuns.Or shorter stuns or anything. Compensate on any possible way but total 2.5 sec immunity on 10 sec cd is just too much. This means you cant put a hamstring after charge etc.

-void tendrils not having a dmg treshold is really bad , If they want to make them undispellable but killable its fine but not having dmg treshold is just bad

-psyfiend is another one which should take a hit. Either its too op or just too bad like now anyone can 1 shot it by just an autoattack or whatever

-feathers and body and soul should be reworked .Too easy to get fears

-spectral guise should have much longer cd but they should compensate and make it a 2 min oh shit button for a priest.Means removes slows dots etc and you vanish for 6 sec reposition even get a winning fear with it but if you use it bad you will be penalised

-symbiosis should be banned from arena

-sotf should no longer increases cast time of cc spells , already explained this before

-heart of the wild should have 15 sec duration or no longer work in arena

-ring of frost should have a longer cd and they can compensate on it making it bigger or even changing its radius every sec meaning you can easier get people or use it to reposition teams

-frozen orb generating procs should be looked at

-demonic gate should get nerfed even more or removed completly from arena

-subterfuge is already fixed for wod no remarks on it

-disorienting roar should be looked at

-double time should be looked at they alredy stated that warbringer will be mandatory

-msr should replace sr - think this is already done

-disrupting shout should replace pummel - think this one is already done as well

-safeguard should no longer break roots - alot of cc breaks should go this is one of them

-monk glove bonus should be removed - snares should matter

-double grip bonus should be removed- Retarded mechanic i doubt anyone will disagree on this one

-sparring and glyph of sparring should be removed- Rng and it provides frustrations for both monks and melle hitting them

-tigereye brew  should be looked at

-stampede , wild imps and forest of totems should no longer be usable in arena and you can actually see something around you once they are up

This is just a annoying mechanic. Makes you lag and you cant see clearly whats happening with 10 pets on you.They also do 25% dmg in arenas why allow them anyways then?

-double freedom,sac,bop should go as well - see too much defensive cds

P.S if can someone can edit this for typos it would be great since my english is really bad . Thanks


#4058807 Don't be an asshole

Posted Nadagast on 21 February 2014 - 12:09 AM

I'm sure everyone has seen how much trolling and general douchebaggery have infected AJ.  I'd like it to stop.

Trolling and assholery puts AJ on a downward spiral.  People troll/asshole-it-up, which leads to less people using this as a forum for serious/reasonable discussion, which leads to more trolling, etc.  AJ always was and continues to be the most popular place for new players to get into the PvP scene.  Any community relies on new members to sustain itself--by making this place a wasteland we are doing nothing but ensuring our own demise.

Before you post a reply or topic, ask yourself: am I being an asshole?  If you are, change your post to take a more educational tone.  If you're feeling heated about something, take some time to cool off before replying.  Don't immediately assume someone is trolling you, some people are just not very knowledgeable.  Worst case, if you reply in a calm educational manner, you've posted something informative for the hundreds or thousands of lurkers who will view your reply.  These are generally newer PvPers, and anything you do to help sustain them as arena players helps all of us.

On any set of forums, it's easy to forget that almost all of the people reading it are lurkers, who will never make any posts.  Lurkers cannot be trolls, they can't be assholes, they are just here to learn or read interesting things.  Post interesting, informative content.  Post drama if you want, but don't be an asshole.  Fuck the trolls, post for the lurkers.

#3936595 Corruption in the Department of Justice!

Posted Pandalol on 10 September 2013 - 06:03 AM

So as I'm sure you all know, there has been some funny business, as there always is at the end of the season with a certain employee of the DOJ. This of course is everyone's favorite paladin, Rambojohny. It all starts as most arena stories do, with a bit of win trading. Rambo, ever thirsty for that elusive Rank 1 title, decided to trade with "FUN TIME JENNA" a game a piece to land on a rank 1 tie with "boys are back in town."

However, Rambo and this team have a volatile relationship, so he sent an envoy to speak on his behalf. Ryanz extended the Tyrannical Gladiators Olive Branch to Fadezz, only to be completely ignored:
http://i.imgur.com/5VKdt0e.jpg

Diplomacy isn't always the answer, so this of course meant war. Another round of wintrading was scheduled to go down, but this time the wool was pulled over our hero Rambo's eyes and he was left high and dry. A 1-1 wintrade turned into a 1-0 DDOS and dip, leaving him down 8 points and without a paddle. "Not this time" whispered Rambo, quivering with rage. Desperate times often call for desperate measures, and it was time for Johny to talk not with his gaming, but with his wallet.

The following is an AJ private message pow wow with Zunniyaki and Rambo. I won't even say anymore, let the pictures speak for themselves:
http://i.imgur.com/ES9EMM7.png
http://i.imgur.com/EpOifdZ.png
http://i.imgur.com/RZQdZAP.png
http://i.imgur.com/avagq8t.png
http://i.imgur.com/n3tB6c8.png
http://i.imgur.com/OHbNiN9.png
Of course, Zunniyaki turned down this illustrious offer. 0/2 there Ramby.


Deplorable. Despicable. Just downright dirty. The Department of Justice are supposed to be pillars of Honor and Integrity. Rambo being among this elite cadre, even if only in a Janitorial capacity, should be absolutely ashamed of himself. But our big spender doesn't stop there. He approached Poppychulo, inquiring about DDOS or hacked team disband services for $1000. Reedz was asked to wintrade, despite being on a non linked BG (smooth Rambo). And of course there was the money proposal to seestraightz that backfired as previously mentioned.

Obviously this is nothing new to RamboJohny, but its always nice to see the proof and the stories. So please gentleman, do your part in assuring that Rambo receives proper punishment. Cheating never wins.
