How is it?

Post by Lichess » Tue Jan 20, 2009 2:34 pm

So I actually haven't done organized pvp at 80... just slicing up flagged mofos around Northrend.

So how is pvp at 80?

Strand of the Ancients is fun imo. A little more balanced than the normal BG's as well. Wintergrasp is ok, but they rely on a Tenacity buff to counteract the outnumbered parties. Very fun overall. Arena is pretty interesting: Spriests aren't very viable, locks are squishy but still ok at damage, "DK's are op!!"<--fuckin whiners :P, rogues can 2-shot just about any non-plate wearer, and some of the top 2s teams are holy pally/DK.

To me it will never be completely balanced, but I think it is more about skill now than class/spec/gear. I'm not that great so it's still a bitch for me to kill certain classes/specs mainly healers, but for the most part each arena match is a dps race. Whoever kills one on the other team usually wins the match. Balancing is just starting with this patch though so we'll see how things end up.

pvp balance atm is awful. 2 brackets of arena are dominated by pure dps teams and if any team wants to make it some where with a healer, your only choice is priest of paladin. DKs (pre 3.0.8 opinion) are insanely overpowered, considering a friend of mine does rogue/dk and he was able to sit in stealth while his DK partner solo'd the other 2 players....at 2100. Simply put, shit dies to easy, except for DKs and pallys.

I respecced and did some PvP on my warrior, it was absolutely awful. And I have PvPed for over 3 years, and this is the worst it has ever been for a warrior IMO. Scaling aside...its pretty bad.
