Apr 3rd 2012 9:06AM The fun is feeling SUPER BOSS when you run headlong into a pack of 5 enemies and snare-walk all the way through the middle of Warsong Gulch and DON'T DIE. It's great imagining how pissed the other team has to be not being able to get you down haha.
Apr 3rd 2012 9:04AM I am a PvP convert. I HATED PvP and found it dumb and ridiculous for a long time. Then I started having a very volatile work schedule (never knew what days I'd be working one week to the next) and became unable to raid reliably. With my new scheduling problem I did the only thing I could: I turned to PvP.
My main problem with PvP originally was that it is so gear dependent and even though I am a Warrior I was dying in 3-4 hits: ridiculous. So for a bit I just assumed PvP was some huge gank-fest where first hit wins. Then I got some gear (and realized how quick and easy it really was to acquire gear, contrary to my belief originally!) and started living even on 3v1 for long enough for backup to arrive (a good 30+ seconds) and I was able to start learning counters, when to use Throwdown, appropriate times to blow CDs, etc.
Then I not only started to like PvP, but I quickly came to LOVE it. While PvE provides great rewards in learning fights and developing your rotation (I personally as a DPS LOVE that feeling I get when I know I pulled off a PERFECT rotation the whole fight) and, of course, killing the big bad guys and saving the world, PvP offers an ENTIRELY different thrill. PvP in WoW is visceral and quick. You press one wrong button and you could be toast. Instead of mastering rotations you now have to master CCs and target priorities and EVERY PvP battle is different, even when fighting the same person multiple times, its reactive rather than premeditated.
EXAMPLE OF MY KEYBOARD IN PvE: click. click. click. click.
EXAMPLE IN PvP: clickclickclickclickclickclickclickclick!
For me personally it's kind of split as PvE is relaxing and PvP is exciting :).
Mar 30th 2012 11:27AM I hear "deeps" a lot and have myself grown fond of it, though not in the way most people use it. I tend to save it for sentences laced in sarcasm like when I'm having a bad day with the meters I'll be like *THAT GUY voice* "Yo bro check out mah mad deeps!"

Mar 28th 2012 9:50AM College student here. I feel your pain.
Mar 28th 2012 9:49AM While it's not necessarily a "FEATURE", honestly the only thing I'm not excited about is Mega Damage.
32K hits do nothing for me. I miss hitting for 200 where the number I saw actually MEANT something. There is such a thing as numbers that are TOO large.

Mar 21st 2012 10:50PM Should I keep refreshing my account page or is wave 1 over?
Mar 21st 2012 9:02AM I'm leveling to 90 and immediately gearing up for PvP to test out the new PvP stat system and experimenting with the world PvP quests. While I love dungeon-delving and the raid finder, I'll be saving those things for when Mists actually goes live as those get stale much more easily.
