Feb 17th 2011 9:25AM I've leveled my rogue/mage/pally pretty much exclusively through PvP, mage being the most recent. I buy the heirlooms I can, and just pick up the rest when i do a rando-dungeon here and there...but buy honor gear as often as I can get it. The cost of the old school gear is negligible in comparison to the lvl 85 stuff.
The real point to it all, and the author glossed over it very quickly...is focus on the objectives.
Things to do:
Protect the FC in WSG(new cap map)
Fight on bases in AB(Gil), and work to cap 3(2)
SLOWLY move forward in AV, and have half the team D
Focus on 2 bases in eye, and if you can't control mid, take a third base (base > flag)
It's all about the objectives, and although you'll see guys boasting about how they topped the killing blows, or had the most dmg done....if you lose, you all lose. Cap, Cap, Cap...then kill.
Loved this article...love that we can lvl in BG's.
Feb 15th 2011 9:32AM I couldn't agree with you more...We were wet noodles before 4.0.6, now we're slightly damp uncooked noodles and it's MUCH better.
I saw that the author said "PPL are QQ'ing about Disc being OP"...and if they are, I say "for shame...". If they mean in PvP, slightly diff story, but still not OP...every other healer was at a certain level, now disc is at that lvl as well, but in PvE it's freakin viable and I love it!
Feb 14th 2011 9:38AM All things aside from Moon can be disputed....Moon is officially Sheep!!!
It is written in stone......
Feb 7th 2011 9:30AM Never
My gaming buddy does them on all 16 of her characters...every....single....one....
Waste of time in my book, I have 310 flight, she has 310 flight...but I have the awesome gear to go with it, and she has trendy little love rocket mounts..."cool man..."
Feb 7th 2011 9:24AM Thank you for this article, I have learned a few things about how hunters work that I didn't know before. Trap Launcher is a new mechanic to all of us, so once more ppl get used to it, I'm sure we're going to frustrate you guys a lot less.
Also...please use the:
moon = sheep
green = hex
purple = fear (or MC)
star = sap
circle = cyclone
Square = Hunter awesomeness
marking mentality...I never understand why a tank will mark with a condom and say "hunter, trap that one".
Also...I didn't know about the pet, I guess no one ever told me and I just assumed they die from time to time and that's part of it. I'll throw a heal or something on them for now on if i see them getting low.
Jan 28th 2011 9:32AM Carbonite...it is the end-all questing, "google-maps" style, gatherer logging, enemy alerting, "where is xyz", minimap sorting, BG helping addon. If Blizz added mouse scrolling maps to the default ui, I MIGHT be able to live without Carbonite.
Addons I most certainly COULD live without....GearScore/PlayerScore.
Addons I'd cry over, but wouldn't quit. Xperl, Clique, TidyPlates, ArkInventory, DBM, Recount, ComboPointRedux, PowerAurasClassic,
Jan 28th 2011 9:28AM I use Xperl and Clique, but same thing, can't live without clique.
To the fella who says "do this, it's better" you haven't given click a chance. Anything you can do, I can do better...including macros tied to mouse-alt/ctrl/shift combos, separating in and out of combat, enemy or friend....anything. clique owns mouseover.
Jan 26th 2011 4:54PM I love dismantle, I love shadow step, i love cloak, I do really like vendetta. I love all of our cooldowns, but I hate our DPS in sub, and I hate that we don't have enough mobility CD's in mut.
Removing Prep from being reachable by all specs was a huge pvp nerf to combat and assassination....HUGE nerf.
Jan 24th 2011 2:45PM But...the silence is less, who cares about 5 energy, mages can blink away from me sooner now...and then I have 4 seconds longer to wait on shadow step now too.
Why do they think Sub needs any nerf at all? I just about can't take down a healer on my own, and typically can't take anything plate down on my own. The only time I actually get kills as sub, is when i follow someone else and just join in on the stabbing. In a 2v2, 3v3, anything matched up, I'm wasted space.
Mut...I crush, top killing blows, top dmg, hardly die...sub didn't need anything but buffs, no nerf was necessary...shadow step needs to break snares.
Jan 21st 2011 2:38PM Although you play alliance...and it takes every ounce of self control just to even talk to you without going nuts on power I + smite....I totally agree with what you laid out, especially in PvP. If you keep the healer up, you will stay up. If you let the healer die while you try to kill some random warrior...you will die. keep the healers up ffs.
