"That being said to be the best in Arena you MUST know your and every other class/spec inside and out."Oh like kittens you do. At the high end of Arena, you just need to know how the cookie cutter class combos of the current patch are played, because that's all that exists at the high end."the skills needed for pve are following a strat that doesn't evolve and only gets easier with gear."Let me tell you a story. I heard this professional drummer say how whenever he gets a new student who's an intermediate level drummer, the first thing he does is gives them a relatively simple beat to play, and that they have to keep playing it until he tells them to stop. And you know what? Most of them can't do it. They inevitably end up throwing a fill in somewhere, or changing up the beat.That's the problem with PvP players in a PvE environment. They're so used to the twitchy, on-the-fly improvisation of Arena that when they're presented with PvE, where it's just one straight-ahead strat, they can't do it. They make stupid mistakes. Now I'm not saying this makes PvE'rs better or more intelligent than PvP'ers. I'm just saying that it's two different skill sets.
