WoW BHA Player vs Player

I am planning on some runs tonight. Also, I am gunning for a dungeon run in Tol Barad-loot and justice points.

Don't know if everyone here knows, but Tol Barad Honor points got changed. Used to be that you'd get like 1800 points for a win or something stupid, and 90 for a loss. Now you get 360 for a win and 180 for a loss, IIRC.

Yeah, that is the ratio. But they added some Warden Rep too. I still say it is totally worth it for 15 or 20 minutes of PVP. You will get more honor than if you just ran random bgs.

As to gear. I do not think we are at a point where we are under the curve of gear with people we are matched against. But I do think having set goals will be good. Ranlin and I are gunning for new weapons next week. I am also going to get more honor pieces.

Just save this week's points until next week. The main hand weapons are by far the biggest upgrades for everyone anyway.

Well I've got a good set of Honor gear now, and I'm virtually unkillable. It is pretty awesome to go most full BGs with only 2 maybe 3 deaths (mostly from getting cocky, or Hordies getting pissed and going out of their way to focus-fire me down). Unfortunately I can't dish out any damage. If I blow ALL my CDs including my new Trink the most I can do is ~3,600 DPS on a dummy. I'm getting crits around 16-18K from Holy Shock and Exorcism. My Prot spec can do better than that w/o even trying.

I'm going to bow out of the 2v2 team, and possibly the 3v3 team for now. I think I can bring some value to the 5v5 team though, if we ever get enough people online to try it out.
I'm also still very interested in R-BGs.

If that is your desire, cool. I would like 2 and 3 for folks ready to play several times a week, and it seems that those people are there along with me. I have seen some people talk in G chat about arena teams.

I still say we make Wednesday night and maybe Sunday afternoon pvp days. Try and herd all the cats together for some rated BGs.

Maybe if we can get a set time down so people who are slightly interested can try and plan for it we can get a big enough turn out. Right now most people are still scrambling to gear up for raids and farming rep to get to excited about impromptu pvp.

I thing Wed and Sun are set, we just need some consistency. I hope Valor and T11 gear is enough to get people from the PVE side onto Tol Barad and Baradin Hold(that is the name right?). Also, the Wardens are the big rep faction as far as mounts and pets go. And they have a ton of dailies to do for 16 gold each as well as being an area with plenty of fish.

I'll be on later tonight if guys want to get some 3s games in and do the TB dailies.

Also dont forget that when the Alliance wins there's an additional 6 dailies available in the middle. Out of those 6 3 of them cycle through 3 different sets after each win.

For those that want to jump into PvP, I can make most of the Ornate Pyrium plate pieces, and all of the Bloodied Pyrium pieces. Most of the gear takes 10 to 15 elementium bars, and 10 volatile fire.

FYI, the size of the raid determines which we run. With 15 people we will get access to Arathi, Gilneas, Eye of the Storm. At 25 we can run the huge battles-Alterac Valley, Strand, Isle.

2 outta the 3 we were within seconds of winning.

I would really love to get 15 and 25 man raids because I really love Gilneas and Strand of the Ancients.

I'll be around.

Count me in. I'll be on after 7:30 or so.

Also, looks like a lot of changes are coming for almost every class in pvp. Probably a good idea to check the notes so there aren't any surprises. For instance, druids are losing instant cast roots :(.

Most important, from the patch. Mineral, fish, and herb tracking no longer resets after an arena match.

Rofl

Wednesday night. Looking to run some battlegrounds. I am gunning for a 15 person raid around 9. Also, Baradin hold if we have control.

Additionally, I now have my main hand fist weapon. I both look bad ass and I doll out a ton of damage. We were wrecking folks last night in 2s and 3d.

Interesting read here for healers:

I did figure out my somewhat weaksauce DPS. I am still split between enhancement gear and healing gear in parts. That will be phased out in the coming weeks, I will hold onto it for when I need to heal in say a raid, but my purpose will be to max out my agility as much as possible. It seems that a little agility, can go a long way.

Also, I have seen some people in G-chat inquiring about arenas. See if Myself, Ranakin, or Tkfourtwoone are on and send them a whisper. We have room for people who want to play.

Also, to mirror the raid threads. It would be nice if folks checked in with availability on Wednesdays and/or Sundays for rated BG raids. We need 10-15 people to run a rated BG. No gearscore limit.

The RNG has been kind to me again. I picked up another 365 pvp piece last night outta BH(10).

That makes it giving out goodies for me 2 times outta the 5 (6?) runs i've done there so far. So my pvp ilvl set is now at 353

Outta those times i have seen only 1 365 pve piece (ret Pally legs)

Was looking at my other (72)hunter's pvp achievements. I so wish there was a way to transfer those. That guy is just 400 away from the 10k kill one, and already has the Knight LT title.

Some changes are coming in the next patch. There will be honor and JP vendors carrying trade goods-ore, cloth, gems, bags of herbs.

I think this is more a way to spend spare honor or JP when you get heroic geared. Personally, I would rather get the mounts. The black tiger mount and mammoth are bad ass looking. Also, I would prefer getting a new mount or pet patched in.

Um, shaping up to be a snowy weekend. If you plan oin being around, I will be running some breakfast BGs and arenas. Hit me up around 8 or 9 EST.

Weekend plans fell through so I'll be on a lot. PvP healbot...and I finally got a mic!

weekend plans for us are still spotty. It can go where i'm on just a few hours period or a few hours scattered across the weekend or back to full on poopsock mode.

Oh, if only there was a way to chnage your tag!

Someone has a sexy man-voice.

Goals for the coming weeks-chest piece this week. I still want to run BGs for honor which will turn into mounts.

The end of the season is nowhere in sight. But I think our main goal should be find a dedicated 5th, help get him/her geared. Simultaneous is that our 3s rating need to get up to 2200.

Check out MMO champion and Arena Junkies for tips on spell rotations, glyphs, macros. They helped me rework some things which have made me a wreckingball.

My personal goal is to get a valid set of healing gear . I figure that in a month or so, I should have good healing gear as an off spec.

Lets do some 5s tomorrow at 8 server.

I want to utilize my PVP spec a bit more before I have to respec again for raid on Thursday. I'm in full Honor gear with the Conquest shield and a PVE chest. I'm fully gemmed and enchanted, and am even more of an impenetrable fortress than ever.

If your heart is set on hearing my impersonation of a whiny Jew, I will be on closer to 10 server.

I'm up to about 3760 resilience...with me and Lawkjaw healing theres a ton survivability for you guys. I'm in for 5s tomorrow at 8. Can we make sure everyone has gladius installed?
