WoW BHA Player vs Player

Holy smokes...I have an arena team...the joys of PvP will surely cause me to show up. I'm in...and I suppose I could invite all of you onto said team.

Any night when you folks aren't raiding will work for me. But I'm on a lot earlier than most of you, like 6 p.m. server. I'd prefer earlier than later because I have to get up so damned early.

Full disclosure: I'm an arena virgin. Yes, it's true.

More full disclosure: I'm only about 1.9K resil at this point. I'm in the crafted PvP plate gear and all but one of the honor-bought offset pieces (cape, rings, neck, etc.) I just upgraded last night to the 1H Baradin's Warden rep axe and am working toward the honor-bought main pieces (head, legs, chest, etc.). I could really use some conquest points.

Someone want to pick a night and time?

Just a heads up...check arenajunkies.com. They help with specifics with your class and what spec you decide on. I have a number of macros (mind you, I don't use any sort of add ons, so its kind of weird making macros) that help with the PvP aspect of the game...they're similar to cheater buttons. However, if you aren't proficient with the cheater buttons they aren't much of a help. In the arenas, its all about CC and burning a specific target. If you find yourself just running around in the chaos, you're effectiveness is decidedly weak. Its quite chaotic and very easy to find yourself hitting any random target. The best teams communicate very well and abuse the snot out of their CC. Just something to think about, I don't know how you can practice without actually doing it. As for a specific time...I'm swamped until mid June and only have sparse random times that I can play. Typically evenings, just not sure which. So I can't say a specific day, however I could potentially get a few rounds in this evening around 830est if its not too late.

Trying to gear up my warlock so I'll be around after 8 pm est tonight. Max hit and spell pen so far in crafted blues and honor trinket/cape. Anyone else gonna be around?

We need to get you and Enix in our arena team.
5v5
Boomkin, Holy Pally, Prot Pally, Mage, Lock.
Could be a ton of fun.

I don't think I'll be around tonight, but tomorrow I should be in and out after 7:30.

I'm 75 percent sure I'll be on tonight, MT. If you want, we can either BG or put together a 2s or 3s team for shoots and giggles.

Noob question (because I'm an arena noob): Do you get points for losing? Or do you actually have to win a match?

I ask that because I'm not adverse to losing my way to shinies. That's how my warrior got his black mechanostrider back in the day -- he needed 30 AB tokens, and I played 30 AB matches to get 'em.

Nothing for a loss. 180 Conq for a win.

I'm enjoying arena. I can't believe I am saying that but it is fun. I'm 3600 resil in boomkin. I could try to heal if needed too or go kitty. I will be on tonight after 8pm. If you need enchants let me know. I can help with crafted plate gear too.

grinds

We have a 2's 3's and 5's arena team thus far. The names are pretty awesome as well...I'll be around this evening if we want to do some facewrecking. As well, we're finding out more and more, its not really about how much damage you do, but controlling your opponent to the point that one of them dies and you don't. Using your CC effectively is the most beneficial then dpsing the snot out of peeps. I would suggest creating macros that will allow you to have a focus target and cc them with whatever your class happens to have. If we keep the heals down, then odds are good that we'll be successful.

And if you have sick gears like grinds then you'll dominate.

So i got a free week pass and when i signed up i saw a signup for an Arena Pass character. Anyone here doing this?

Anyone going to be around tonight? I need some Conquest and/or honor points.

Yessir...after 8 est I'll be bouncing around on one of the xosas.

Okie doke. I think I'll finally top 2K resil tonight. Even at slightly less than that I managed to hold off a paladin and shaman and a bunch of lvl 80 elites in the WG keep for a couple of minutes. (I died of boredom or Crusader Strikes - one of the two.)

I'd love to join you, but alas... I will be not available. Saturday or Sunday might be an option. I want conquest points too.

I'll try to get on and join that fiesta this evening. My basement has some standing water in it though...gotta take care of that mess first.

PvP takes precendence over trivial flooding issues, sir.

Word on the street is that the current Arena season could end as soon as June 21 -- i.e., two weeks from today. Any arena points you have left will become HPs.

So, the new season started yesterday. Any interest in teams? I've got a disc priest that needs 2 more pieces of gear before I can start. Should be good to go by this weekend.

There's a GWJ arena team, though it's not too active.

When I get back from vacation in a couple of weeks, I'd be up for 2s (or more) and some BGs. My prot paladin is sitting at 2.9K resilience, but I still need to grind out some offset pieces.

Anyone interested in rated BGs? I ran a few matchs with another guild last night that went well. We were low on dps and resilience but still went 2-2. DPS and tanks are definitely needed...

Edit: hopefully when Enix gets back we can get him in there

I'd be up for some rated BGs. Hit me up when you're online next. I'm usually on after 6 p.m. server for a couple of hours.

By "well," does that mean "win"? 'Cause I'd definitely be up for that.
