Too scared to Arena...

As you already mentioned, in the upcoming patch there is a change to Vial of Shadows that should reduce some of the burst damage you are experiencing in PvP.

Dying in openers certainly isn't fun, and can be incredibly frustrating if you're the one on the receiving end of such a coordinated attack, but don't give up! In addition to perhaps taking some time to focus on other activities such as Rated and unrated Battlegrounds where you have more people to watch your back, you might also consider browsing some PvP videos from other members of the community to not only help inspire you, but to also arm you with a further arsenal of tactics that you can use to your own advantage against opposing teams.

Also, from my own experience, when I was having a lot of trouble against a certain class or spec that I felt countered my usual tactics, I found it helpful to sometimes grab a friend that played that class and spent some time dueling them so that they could critique me on areas where I could improve my skills, including my timing on using certain abilities, and how I could counter some of their own tactics. That way when I stepped back into arenas, I was more confident in my own skills and felt better-prepared for how to expose the weaknesses of my enemies.

Keep at it, and remember there are players out there equally as scared to see you step out onto the Arena floor. :)


Ok, I watched some videos.

I could try an infinite number of possibilities and still be unable to counter/avoid this in any situation.

Lets be honest, you can't balance PvE and PvP at the same time while still having so many different class/spec combinations. At that rate, they can't even keep one of those balanced so how are we to expect them to balance both at the same time?

If you want balanced PvP, find another game because WoW will never have balance.

@blue Vials is not really going to reduce the burst in pvp since it is going to proc MORE often but the damage is spread out.. so classes like a rogue or feral who have under 1sec white swing damage will be procing this trinket doing even more damage but over time meaning RLS will still be insane and hell even better due to the damage.


I think you don't understand how proc trinkets work my friend.

<Example>
Say the trinket right now has an internal cooldown of 30 seconds. Meaning that no matter how fast you hit, you can only get 1 proc every 30 secs.

Well now they are changing it so that it will do 1/3rd the damage but have an internal cooldown of 10 seconds.

That would mean that the trinket will still generate the same amount of damage over the coarse of say a boss fight +/- a proc or two but in a short fight you may so an additional proc but for greatly reduced damage.

That would mean less burst, but higher sustainable damage.

He plays a rogue! Of course he doesn't care that people are getting destroyed in PvP! He plays the class that does it!

First blue post I have seen on the arena forums in....idk I didn't think they even post here.

How about commenting on warriors finally? You know that class that has seen nothing but nerfs to the point where there is no point in playing one in PvP? It would be nice to ya know maybe stop ignorning your customers and actually post in a thread people care about.


Ya this needs to get talked about, id like to know how the devs feel about warriors in arena atm, And i know the many gladiator warriors who rerolled to something else in the last season til now would like some talk from the blues about this subject.

Im sure most of us would also like to hear blizzards thoughts on RLS, Or just even lock/shaman synergy. Also how do the devs feel about rogues?.

Another thing that would be nice to talk about is resto druids in arena, What do the devs think about them?

This will not happen, I just do not understand blizzard, every little thing is held to secrecy and then POOF thrown at us and then we get told "thats it, either l2p or roll something stupid OP" and faceroll through the entire game without even learning how to for example, KICK.


why learn how to kick when you have a half dozen other abilities to use when they juke it anyways?!?!?!
