#4554237 rsham comps 6.2.3

Posted abolishedtehe on 16 December 2015 - 07:53 AM

(In my opinion) The best rsham comps to play from best to worst are

- Kittycleave
- Jungle
- LSD2

Top 3 are the only ones which are maybe considered tier1... Honestly you'll just lose anyways doesn't matter what you play.

these are some good ideas!

#4554243 Food for thought from an oldschool player

Just some words from an oldschool player in response to the state of competitive PvP -

The lacking player base and enthusiasm is the symptom, not the problem.  The problem is a lack of creativity and rewards that are worth hard competition.

Instead of complaining put your heads together and offer solutions-

Easy fixes that could be implemented:

1. Smaller scale bgs.  Think 5v5, 6v6, 7v7.  This alone would solve the problem of getting large groups of people together and staying together, while providing objective based pvp rather than sandbox style (not degrading arena)

2. Better rewards.  More cosmetics, more interesting titles.  Think class specific.  This would give more replayability, desireablility, and uniqueness to earned titles and cosmetics are always desireable (think glowing chest pieces for high ranks.. Huge horns in your helment)

Start with "what would really make me want to COMPETE to earn THIS AWESOME THING?" Work back from that.  I think you'll be surprised what awesome ideas that could be thought up

Not sure why it's not showing but I've played since vanilla and was the only DK in S7 to achieve rank 1 (lafu).  Thinking about coming back for Legion.  Let's make this game fun again.

Honestly, i think it's not a matter of what we need to do, but what we need to NOT do.
  • The PvP community needs to be serious about ostracizing cheaters. If you know someone who DDoSes, fly-hacks, or any form of obvious cheating, do NOT continue to play with them. Cheating has become way too common-place in the PvP scene, and while i know people don't agree with it, you foster its growth when you play with someone who perpetuates it or supports it.
  • Stop being so toxic towards the outward community. We are a minority of the dwindling WoW population; you can't be so selective when choosing people to play with and helping new players learn the game. I'm not saying you have to run a charity service and teach every sub-1500 player the game, but don't be cruel. Direct them to sites such as this one so they can read up and try and understand their mistakes. Be patient and help the people who truly want to get better and learn.
  • If you don't have a constructive opinion, don't consistently spread garbage. Everyone has bad days, everyone hates comp x/x/x or class x. It's okay to shit-post now and then, but don't make it a habit. If you think something deserves changing, explain why, and try and be constructive.
  • Support the infrastructure already present. GCDtv is going to great lengths to get people excited about arena, and honestly they're doing a great job. I'm not too familiar with organizers over in EU (the only one i remember is Bleached Bones?), but these guys work hard to take the game they love and get people interested in it. They need our support to grow and help the scene grow back with them.
If you really care about this game and enjoy it, you don't just roll over and die. I know it's hard when the company in charge seems to care very little if at all about what you love, but they're trying to be better. In Legion PvP and PvE will be separate, something we as a community have been asking for since late TBC if not earlier. Blizzard is ridiculous and borderline cruel when it comes to the PvP side of their game, but they are trying to amend for their mistakes, so they deserve some credit.

#4554399 Elemental - weapon enchant multistrike, why not?

However - is it correct that if I have 50% of the multistrike stat, then I should get two 25% chance rolls for multistrikes in PvE. BUT in PvP i get one 50% chance roll for a multistrike?

If that is the way it works, you should not be losing total damage, but "only" suffer the potential extra burst from the two spells you had in PvE.
old and outdated information, multistrike has 2x chances to proc in pve and 1x chance to proc in pvp, with no additional proc chance in pvp to compensate

Has anyone tried running with the multistrike enchant (mark of the frostwolf), and how did you find it? pro/cons   :)
if you want a realistic answer, you will probably not even notice the difference between the two over a large session of games - if you just want whichever enchant is "best", then pick the haste one and try not to think about it too much

#4554069 Elemental - weapon enchant multistrike, why not?

Posted Metaclassx on 15 December 2015 - 09:48 PM

Haste increases speed of dot ticks of Flame Shock (and therefore, more Lava Surge procs), cast times of all spells and GCD's.
Aside from the haste enchant being insanely good, it also scales better as a stat in PvP then multistrike does, even though MS scales better in PvE

#4402366 Burst ww 6.1

Posted Schackt on 19 March 2015 - 03:24 PM

Wait for Agi/Multristrike proc -> Expel Harm (for Chi, less energy than jab, doesnt need melee range) + Chi Burst (x2) + Tiger Palm + TEB + RSK + Sweep + HS. If you can, paralyze right after and do FoF. Even without the FoF, you end up doing somewhere between 50% - 70% of targets health if pulled off correctly. Problem is pulling it off. The burst is there, it's just a bit clunky to set it up.

#4402568 Life of a Warlock

Posted Fakalock on 20 March 2015 - 07:35 AM

I cant agree with u more... It is just not fun doing 2s as warlock (i only do it so i can get the 2.2k achiv.) Vs most comps i spend atleast 50-60% of the game standing still faking and making sure agony and curruption dosn't fall off. Some times i can kite away with soulburn port. Unforturnatly that only results in me accually getting one or two UA's up and nothing else.

I play Affli/rhsam. vs some comps we accually rape. Vs hunter/healer we have maby a ~80% winrate. Lucky for us thats a Fotm comp, so there is a alot of them. Struggle tho is when we face rogue paired with rdrood or rsham... Then we cant seem to win at all. I ge so little pressure that the enemy healer barley has to do anything. Vs rogue/Rdrood they never ever gets a clone off vs us. never! And they still just rape us in dampening. Every single time we accualy get pressure there is a cloak. The rogue dosnt even need to get of me to get sap out of blind or for a kick on my sham...

But then again i guess its surpose to be a bit like that. I mean, shaman is IMO the strongest healer vs a lock (all casters realy) so it should be hard ass hell...

Concidering that blizzard never readds something that they once removed I guess we will never get CoE or the breath thingy back, I would like to se them make the soulburn port be basic built in to the port. So that you get the sprint without a shard... That could make live a bit easier but still hard vs some comps...

One thing I've noticed accually helps vs quite a bit of comps is not to run with the "movment imperial effects"-trinket. But to run dubble dps trinkets instead (im UD) the proc and on use one. when the proc does it magic, fake one interupt->SF->fear the other target (generally a healer) and pop on use trinket + ds and burst the one not in cc down. Thats never enought for someone to die, but u get quite a bit of defensives. And u can folow up the fear with hex. I only use the "movment imperial effects"-trinket vs comps with alot of cc for me. I.e. mage/rogue, ret/rogue, mage/feral. Hunter/healer got lots of cc but i run dubble dps anyways.. else i wount score kills.

Sry for the novel ^^

#4397916 Takarita 1.9 rated

Posted Freshqtz on 08 March 2015 - 08:47 PM

Well maybe she is slightly higher rated than you because her partners might be a little better than the ones you play with. Also, if you prefer to watch Takarita instead of a glad level hunter then feel free to keep wondering why you can't break your own rating barrier.

#4398524 Focus Help, keep losing target

Posted Kris1383 on 10 March 2015 - 11:44 AM

Use a macro like this:

#showtooltip Mortal Strike (or bloodlust or something you "spam")
/cast Mortal Strike
/focus arena1

Then you just edit the macro when you enter arena and can see which arenaX is the healer or whatever target you wish to focus.

If you dont like that, you can make macros like - /focus arena1 and bind to F1 Key, /focus arena2 and bind to F2 key etc. But this will disappear when they disengage you have to press they bound key again.

The smart thing about the first macro is, that because you "spam" MS everytime the rogue, feral, discpriest etc disengage you will have them as focus again, as soon as they apear and you use your Mortal Strike.

The only downside is, that your kinda locked into focusing a specific target for the entire match, unless you take time to edit the macro on the fly.
