We are warrior and priest, both glad couple of times and 2.6k++
Experience required: 2.5k++
Attitude: Most important, we will play a lot of games, testing. Don´t be a rager and be open to feedback. Obviously if we lose to shitters because someone didnt op def CDs you can flame him to the ground.
They should've kept the interrupt on heroic throw, but without the blanket silence, and nerfed the ability for warriors to pop all their cooldowns @ once. Gag order throw was one of those really fun abilities to use.
2200 rating/ or gladiator to acsess the (Main Forum) in the meantime this the waiting room is a subsitute forum great for asking questions and discussing tactics.
or even entering ask gladiator forum if you have specific questions you are interested in asking.
restricted like this I belive to keep the discussion there for higher rated players to be able to discuss and keep the discussions on somewhat a higher caliber of content. (not to say everyone qualifies but generaly speaking seasoned gladiators tend to be quite good at the game)
these sub forums waiting room and ask gladiator gives you much help and is being read by many gladiators from across the board.
Personaly ive gained alot of help in this forum that I would not have gained otherwhise to help me improve my play.
This is a simple spreadsheet I've made to help determine the relative value of PvP power for warriors. It is also useful for helping you determine how to gem, which socket bonuses to use or ignore, which honor/conquest pieces to purchase, and which stats to reforge.
If you're not familiar with WoW spreadsheets, then I'll do my best to try to give a quick explanation of how it works. I use a popular tool called SimCraft to generate values for how much one point of every stat gives in DPS. This is mainly a PvE tool, but I try to configure it to more closely resemble a PvP fight. For me (personally), this means: setting enemy level to 90, using "helter skelter" combat mode (chaotic and PvP-like movement/uptime), average fight length to 200 seconds, only using the buffs and debuffs that my 3v3 has available (10% attack power, 5% stats, and 4% physical vulnerability), using defensive stance, and removing all food/flask/potion buffs, etc. SimCraft is responsible for the bulk of the math actually going on here, I am just taking the values that it spits out and incorporating some PvP stats into it. Please note that if your gear differs from mine, or if your arena team's buffs/debuffs differ from mine, your stat values will be different. How different? It's hard to say without fully simulating it. You can either use my stat values and hope they're relatively close to yours, or you can import your own character into SimCraft and run your own simulation.
The primary goal of this entire spreadsheet is mainly the Wowhead link that it provides at the bottom. This link is setup to rank gear in ascending order, while showing you which gems would work best in them (note that the recommended helm gem seems buggy, but the rest should be accurate). And one of the more valuable purposes of these stat weights is to see how PvP power currently compares to your other stats. Increase your current PvP power and you will notice that its value (or stat weight) will decrease in comparison to others. (But remember that both strength and PvP power scale off of each other, so as you get future gear upgrades you will need to re-simulate. I will be updating the spreadsheet with my own values every so often.) No more wondering, or just assuming, how PvP power stacks up against strength or crit gems!
Another interesting stat is resilience. Since resilience is a defensive stat, it is difficult to put an exact value on it when compared to offensive stats. I created a drop down menu for you to choose how much you value resilience (which is going to depend entirely on your comp, play style, and personal preference). By default I have chosen to make it equal to crit (for a balanced build), but if you change it to be equal to mastery (glass cannon), you will notice that it will advise you to skip over many of the resilience socket bonuses. If you set it back to be crit, you should notice the Wowhead link telling you to utilize more of the socket bonuses again.
The rest of the spreadsheet is pretty self-explanatory. I have set expertise to be worth zero since I am currently expertise capped while reforging entirely out of it. Hit I have set equal to mastery, since those are the two stats that are interchangeable when it comes to reforging and trying to get close to 3.00%. Don't be afraid to play around with manually adjusting any of these values. If you don't have Excel, you will probably need to upload the .xls file on your own EditGrid account (to actually be able to edit the cell contents).
