Resilience

Post by Oestrus » Sun Jun 07, 2009 11:03 am

Calvin warned me these forums were kind of desolate, so I figured I would try to throw a conversation starter on here.

How much Resilience is suggested for a healer in the Arena?

I have been trolling Arena Junkies, MMO-Champion, etc. and the results seem to kind of mixed. Most people suggest anything between the 600-800 range is optimal and a few people say that 800+ is best. I just hit about 825 last night, with the purchase of some new Deadly shoulders.

I know that we're lucky enough to have some amazing PVPers in here, some that I've stalked furiously and pestered with questions myself (ZOMG Mullins) - so I wanted to see what the general consensus here might be.

In terms of my bracket, I'm about to crack the 1600s on my 2v2, with a warlock. And my 3v3 is made up of the same warlock, myself and a rogue friend of ours. We just started out, but are already approaching the 1400s.

Thanks for the help!

As a resto druid, 825 should be plenty. Try to stay above 800 and start working on getting your SP as high as you can.

What spec is your warlock.
I don't have the exact talent point spectrum for him, but I know he's doing the Affliction based PVP spec - with Unstable Affliction, Haunt, etc. His name is Slashgrin and he's from Thunderhorn, if you want to Armory him and get the exact details.

We do that for our 2v2 and we were doing that in our 3v3 - but we have seen how successful warlock/rogue/shaman was with a Destruction spec and he is trying that out. We had more luck when he was Affliction in that combo, but we haven't completely given up on the idea of making Destruction work.

Posting because my druid has zero resilience, and I keep seeing Oestrus's name.
Sue me, I like to edit.
