My Internet was messing up yesterday..Wouldn’t let me online and still won’t work today, great another postponed…post xD.
Recently a friend and I have been trying to do some pvp. I respec’d to a 2v2 arena spec and we tried our hand at 10 games to get some points. We could only get into the 1500′s nearly 1600′s but our team combo , Priest//Mage, isn’t the best. This team comp. requires us to out skill/outplay our opponents and make 0 mistakes. We have to time our CC’s, I personally have to focus on Healing us, Mana Burning, Help with the dmg, Know when to crowd control, know when to run off and drink etc. etc. This wasn’t so easy for me seeing as this is the first time I’ve taken pvp seriously since the expansion. We used to run 10 games just to get some points, me staying my pve spec and whatever talent choices my mage friend had at the time. This wasn’t so bad, I have about half a pvp set complete, the resilience helps me stay alive but not nearly long enough to make it count. (nerf burst please…)
When we were playing our games last week, all we ran into, every team, EVERY SINGLE TEAM! Had a resto shaman…I think there was 2 games out of about..25 that didn’t have a resto shaman. We eventually learned how to deal with this, depending on the situation / arena / other opponent, we had to Crowd Control the shaman and kill the dps, or Crowd Control the dps and kill the shaman. We had to time our fears/sheeps perfectly and take advantage of their mistakes. I think we ended up winning 3-4 more than we lost, nothing to accomplishing but we got more rating than we normally do. Once we get more gear I’m sure this would be a bigger success! We did some games after the reset had happened, and this time every team had a rogue. As some of you may know, rogues are just a Cloth wearer’s nightmare right now. I can survive them but not forever. If my partner doesn’t help me deal with it I’d die even faster. Of course, if I had 900+ resilience this would be a different story. I was only running with 494 at the time /shrug.
Overall, arena’s are fun to do with a friend who doesn’t get mad at mistakes and doesn’t take it as serious as others. Granted we did take them serious, but not so much as other people. I finally grinded honor for my pvp trinket (the new level 80 one) — Now time to lose 28 AV games for my Black War ____ (<-Can’t decide what mount I want yet..)
On a side note, Samodean has started a thread about Create Your Own Azeroth, over at Blog Azeroth. I hope that what I can bring to this project will be substantial enough (:
