The Colosseum takes us inside the world of the gladiator to interview some of the top arena fighters on the battlegroups. Our goal is to bring a better understanding of the strategy, makeup and work that goes into dueling it out for fame, fortune and Frostwyrms. We're especially focused on the people who play these games, to further shed light on the world of the PvP player. If you'd like to be interviewed for The Colosseum, please feel free to contact us -- be sure to include your armory as a link!
This week, The Colosseum had the pleasure of interviewing Bandler, priest of Blackrock. Bandler is on one of the highest rated 5v5s in the world, as well as having exceptionally good "high scores" for arena statistics. Read on to find out what he has to say about priests, arena strategy, and practical advice.
The Colosseum: Why do you play priest? What is it about the class's toolbox that appeals to you for competitive arena?
Bandler: For me, priests are one of the most versatile classes. We're able to do steady healing, yet we can put out a lot of damage at the same time.
What's the coolest thing you've ever done in arena? Don't be modest.
I guess Shadow: Word Deathing a Blind is cool.
