#3401920 Shadowplay vs TSG

Posted Nearz on 29 July 2011 - 09:49 AM

Make sure the pal is CCed all game (quite easy for a shadow+lock which are not being focused).
Put insane pressure on both dk and warrior (no fear just hit them hard, death coil+disarm on reckstorm).
At one point, they should go defensive.
The key is your dps, u should totaly rape the warrior (while the paladin is feared/silence/hex).

#3400148 Is balance and class representation an illusion of our perception?

Is balance and class representation an illusion of our perception?



I'd like to get some honest feedback in this thread about what people's thoughts are about the current top comps in the game and if we unknowingly over exaggerate how good certain classes/comps are (shaman warlock etc).

Now that might sound really stupid but let me go on.

What if some comps are extremely good that just aren't given a chance?  What if there are a lot of comps that would say make hunter a really good class, maybe even something stupid like fire mage survival hunter (random nonsense).

I feel that the way arena is played right now is we see all these super skilled players play RLS, RMP, etc and the game just goes on to copycat them, forcing all classes in those comps to gravitate towards playing those comps.

What if top skilled players tried new comps and I don't mean q'd them for one night, I mean actually put effort into some random comp for a couple of weeks tweaking strategy and found out that it was actually really strong?

Look back to wrath when before twixz and flex showed off beastcleave at their first MLG no body ran it, 1 week later nerf beastcleave.  Kind of what happened when the United States saw how successful LSD was on euro BG's, it then blew up in the US. (Also ATC ie straight to the top)

So in all honesty do you guys think that maybe there are some dormant random comps out there that we don't realize they are good because we will never give them a chance?  Thus making classes in those random comps that might be good seem overpowered?

Do you think classes are nerfed more because they are broken in pvp or because they are given the perception of being broken because they fit into a certain flavor of the month comp that everyone decides to play.


#3382327 Resto - staff this season?

Which do you guys prefer?  The 100+ spirit or 33 int?


int since it has been said like 100 times that INT > SPIRIT if you are hitcapped from the spirit.

Spirit does a shit to our manaregen, Int is mana spellpower and manaregen.


Staff vs 1h/off

- 33 int
+ 9 sta
+135 spirit
-0.73% crit
+ 0.4 wpn speed


i would go 1h/off becaue imo  almost 1% crit and 33int are better than 9 sta n 135 spirit, tho you can reforge that extra spirit into haste, making it almost as good as 1h/off for druids.

priest: staff
druid: 1h/off


#3376867 This vicious cycle.

Posted Reesezpiecez on 18 July 2011 - 06:51 AM

While a wonderful theory and all, its pretty ignorant to think that Blizzard would intentionally imbalance this game so that they can keep the 3% of their playerbase that arenas hooked on phonix


#3368177 Blogs about RBGs & arenas

Posted Ansi on 14 July 2011 - 05:24 PM

It seems to me all the pvp blogs and sites died out lately.


Right now I just read AJ, which has ~5 percent great content hidden beneath piles of one-word replies and personal flamewars.

Sites like Worldofming went down, Hydramist is all about those two guys and Skill Capped is pay or fuck off. What else is there? Maybe I just forgot.

Are there any decent sites left worth reading? By decent I mean sites, where people put an effort into writing and write new content and discussions often. They can be class specific, I don't mind.




#3354373 What do you think R. Druids need?

Posted GLopez on 08 July 2011 - 11:36 PM

Nerf Efflorescence and Tranquility by x percent and buff all other healing by x percent.


#3341161 New to spriest, a few noobie questions

Posted Nixxy on 03 July 2011 - 09:45 AM

multidotting should never be a priority or goal imo, you should be like for example hard nuking 1 target, then swap to a second while dots still running on first - if you do it properly and healer doesnt have enough time to heal up the first who's dropping from dot dmg, you can swap back to first with mind spike burst. Should be looking for situations like that imo.

Shadow has rly good single target pressure, should exploit that. Lots of good swaps and concentrated nukes is better than trying to keep dots on 2+ ppl imo


#3342313 which comps will ele work with

Posted Guest on 04 July 2011 - 12:00 AM

eles will work with none. the buffs are just being overhyped.
they will be just as shit as they were in s9


#3325851 Ferals - Do you ever use Thorns at high rated 3v3?

Posted Datah on 27 June 2011 - 03:08 PM

there are no important situations where it's worth spending globals on thorns (it's a negligible amount of damage, contributes nothing at all to burst windows, and costs 2 globals unless you were already in caster form - there's always something better you could be doing)

in fact, the only time it's useful at all is situationally to kill snakes instantly against hunter teams, if you're already in caster form (or if you are expecting a snake trap soon), or occasionally as dispel cover


#3274302 4.2 - Destro Locks Viable

Posted Magneta on 01 June 2011 - 04:07 AM

Even if immolate was completely undispellable, destro is still garbage. The spec only worked because you could take off 50% or more of someone's health in a chaos/conflag. The burst windows just aren't large enough to chaincast 10 chaosbolts/incinerates to get that same damage.


#3294229 Hpalas in cleave vs wizards

Posted isabis on 10 June 2011 - 11:21 PM

Bubble first CC and trinket second one (sometimes it's vice versa, if it's team with CC on different DR you should bubble in 80% cases on first CC you get) and if you manage to break one CC with a Sac it's a big plus.
Hug pillar, never rush in to stun, when CCer like mage or lock comes closer then 20y to you stun him IMMEDIATELY, don't hesitate (use HoJ glyph aswell because it's godlike).
When you get locked or blank CSed run behind the closest pillar.
Pop wings and divine favor as soon as you see opponents popping anything like pillar of frost, icy veins, reck, berserker etc. It's better to pop wings/favor as soon as you see opponents popping offensive CDs then waiting for your team mates to get low on hp, it will result in much more pressure from your team.
That's pretty much it.


#3331752 LETS RECAP SEASON 9 AS IT COMES TO A CLOSE!

Posted Bumeyes on 29 June 2011 - 08:24 AM

Rampant MMR exploiting knocks genuine Glads off top spots.
Blizzard extend season by a week just as MMR exploiting is hitting its peak.
Messed up system means people never lose rating at the start of season, requires ladder reset but not before people claim 2700+ statistics/achievements.
Scoreboard timer leads to people being teleported out of arena mid match.
Fury of Angerforge trinket bug.
Attacks ignoring resilience in Arena.

Early Wrath Ferals
Pre-nerf Warriors
Post Nerf Warriors
Frost Death knights
Mage damage
TSG
MLS
LSD 2.0
Double healer warrior prenerf
Prenerf KFC
Deep Ring
10 second Smokebomb (on prep)
Disc priests unplayable at season start
Resto druids best healer in 0 comps
Paladins only viable in Cleaves
Ele,enh and destro specs gutted
Shadow priest dispel protection not fixed until final weeks of season
Resto shamans outhealing entire teams with Cleanse
Resto shamans going from best healer to...best healer by a wider margin with the implementation of Spirit Link
