  • HOW TO FORM GROUPS FOR WORLD PVP
  • ==================================================================

    Forming Groups using The Premade Finder
    The World War Event is turning the entire outside world of WOW into the games largest battleground. We will be using the premade finder to organize groups. First open the honor tab press/click [H]>[Player vs Player]>[Premade]>"[CUSTOM PVP]" to form groups. We will be using this because at this time there is not a "WorldPVP" tab.

    To find groups in the premade finder now or during the event please go to the premade finder [PvP]>[Premade]>[Custom] and use the keyword "WORLDPVP" one word, and click find group.


    If we keep group names uniform we can form groups quickly. We will also be using the following tags for group names. WW/Hunt/Atk/Def/BG/Forming/HELP!

    Descriptions - Group Types
  • World PvP/WPVP - abbreviation
  • World War/WW - abbreviation
  • Hunting/Hunt or Ganking/Gank - a hunting party group that goes from zone to zone hunting for players and battles. Killing everything you come across. These group are what start and keeps World PvP alive and going strong.
  • Attack/Atk - a group that is set on controlling the zone. Also fighting and destroying anyone that may try to contest and defend the zone.
  • Defender/Def - aiding in defense of zones and cities. *None shall pass!*(Honorable Group + Role Play=Very Fun)
  • Bodyguard/BG - a group dedicated to protecting valuable cargo A.K.A. a Leveler/Quester in high pvp activity zones. Throw a raid marker on the "cargo" and protect it with your life! (Honorable Group+Role Play = Very Fun)
  • Forming/Reforming - a group that is forming or reforming & currently planning large combat.
  • HELP! - a battle is raging and they require help! Lots of enemy forces are in the area. (Honorable Group+Role Play=Very Fun)

    ==================================================================
  • HOW TO GEAR UP FAST! 700+PVE ilvl & 730+PVP ilvl
  • ==================================================================

    Ashran is and will always be the fastest way to gear up in WoD. A "winning" group in Ashran can earn you all of the following within one hour:
  • 4000-8000 Honor with Bonus Quests + Events + Rares + Honor Kills + Artifact Frag turn-in
  • 1500-2000 conquest for 3-4 Domination quests per hour
  • 12-20 common PVP pieces ilvl 625pve / 700pvp
  • 3-5 superior PVP pieces ilvl 670pve / 715pvp
  • 1 FREE piece of conquest gear *random* from first domination quest ilvl 700pve / 730pvp
  • You can spend the honor to make 670pve / 715pvp ilvl gear.
  • You can spend the conquest to make 700pve / 730pvp ilvl gear.
  • .
    This may sound crazy but I assure you it is not. I have geared over hundred of my guild members this way, and hundreds more on my server along with many others; for the world war event using this method. As stated it only requires a "winning" group. Repeat winning the Ashran Domination Quests, as needed to attain full gear. For tricks on winning Ashran or world pvp battles check the "Tips and Tricks + Helpful Macros" section of this post.
    .
    FUN FACT: Community groups like Wow Public Vent (now supporting both Horde and Alliance with the official home of Avengers & Hydra Premades) will take anyone under their wing with their motto "NO gear req. Just have vent. All are welcome!" These communities also assist in gearing thousands of players every day via these same methods I mentioned above. Search for them on the World of Warcraft forums or in the community section of this post.

    ==================================================================
  • WORLD PVP STRATEGY - TIPS AND TRICKS
  • ==================================================================

    Large Scale World PvP - Basic Strategy
  • Attack the Groups Core - If you team push into the center of any group, the enemy will always panic and split. Their healers will run and be unable to use effective heals because they are running. The dps will over extend their healers and die.
  • Attack as a Unit - If the group is pushing forward everyone moves forward, healers, range, dps, tanks, everyone. Melee prepare to be gripped and have defensives ready when pushing. So you can live through it.
  • Move as a Unit - The tighter you stack when moving the better. This allows for mass stealth, shared defensives, HUGE burst cleave on targets. This also allows you to get AOE healing. and a solid push into the enemy forces to split them from their healers.
  • Line of Sight - Many objects block spells in the game use this to your advantage in large fights. Try not to hide from your healers. If you have a lot of deathknights you can chain grip healers behind walls and wipe entire raids, by killing every healer.
  • Tank & DPS Support - If you play a DPS or a Tank, use your raid and defensives to save your party members when you can.
  • Banners & Toys - Guild Banners, PVP Banners, Griefing Banners, City Banners, & Toys should be used during the event. You can get buffs, distract the enemy, make them angry, create a choke point, and get bonus gear and transmogs from currency rewards.
  • Crowd Control - in large scale PVP you should focus CC on everyone. First CC the DPS to keep your raid alive (everyone opens with BURST@ start of fight). Then start CC on the healers MID fight to start killing the other team. *The reverse of this is true if you used a mass stealth raid attack*
  • .

    Group Types and Basic Strat
    Recommended Group Setups
      1+ Rogues for Mass Stealth
      1+ Mages for Portals + Food + ROF Circle for Kamakazi Attacks
      1+ Warlocks for Summon Stone + Cookies
      1+ Healers Always
      2+ Healers (10 man)
      4+ Healers (20 man)
      6+ Healers (40 man)
      1-5+ Tanks (40 man) great for front line stunner/silencer and team push
      1-30+ Melee (40 man) great for front line stunner/silencer +burst *wait for defensives or you will die*
      1-30+ Range (40 man) great for CC +burst, these groups cannot push effectively

  • Heavy Melee #Cleave - The area damage and hard burst of a pvp melee raid team is crazy. Deathknights Rogues Warriors +all other melee make for amazing combos. Mass stealth + move to center of enemy raid burst+aoe+cc = #REKT. Remember to mass stealth in before you enter combat for that surprise advantage. Casters will always run if you do this and they become free kills. The surprise attacks win battles.
  • Heavy Range #Cleave - These teams are your basic pug groups. Stand, cast, turret. If the enemy does not stealth attack or team push... you will win by sheer long range. It's gun wave time! Pew pew pew... (wait wrong game)
  • Everyone can Res Teams - Simple! Bring lots of Druids, Deathknights, Warlocks, Shamans. Everyone can Resurrect someone. So, play like you have God mode! Everyone get up front and GO HAM!


  • Tips and Tricks
    How to escape World War / World PVP
    It's really not that hard to escape the event. Do what you do normally. If your on a PVE server chances are the only area's that will be effected are those by capital cities and the cities themself. Dalaran, Shattrath, Garrisons are all 100% PVP neutral. If you need auction house go to a garrison or dalaran if your an engineer. Banks are everywhere. Anyone can set their Hearth to Dalaran. Just do that for a week or instead of Stormwind or Orgrimmar. Anyone under level 20 by default cannot be flagged for PvP unless you enter a lvl 20+ contested zone. All starting zones are safe. Aside from the random NPC kill. If you really want to escape it join a party on a PVE server while your questing. Queue up for a dungeon or LFR. Socialize with fellow faction members on PVE servers. Its an MMO not a single player game. People cant bite you through a computer... /bite. See, I tried and almost as effective as splash on a magikarp. Who knows, you might even meet your new best friend. Its a large World of Warcraft out there, there's a bestie for every personality.

    Next Level PvP
  • The Decoy - Have a few players outside attacking a city, have everyone else hiding in building or under cover waiting to gank the incoming defending raid. Use MASS STEALTH on a countdown + druid stampede to get into the middle of the enemy group. Pop out of stealth LUST/HERO NUKE #REKT
  • The Dinner Bell/Hostage - Every time you attack a "Flagged NPC" it gives a local defense warning. Some NPC's such as the one @ the top of the alter in OLD IRON FORGE, has an instant respawn. Constantly killing him sets off an alarm and it makes it look like your slaughtering millions. So save an NPC to kill and bring in more enemy players with the dinner bell/hostage.
  • Phasing Armies - If you want to really mess with people, you can always charge the enemy and leave group to phase back to a home server. Doing this to players will make them freak the hell out. Reform at another location if you want to continue battling on that server.
  • The Invisible Army - this requires you to have 3+ Rogues in your raid. You group up "visible or hidden" from the enemy cycle mass stealth and you do a flank around them, if you want you can split to attack them from all sides. Mages can invis and run to center and to creates rings of frost while DK's target Gorfiends Grasp the mages. This will completely destory the opposing team especially when you pop lust/hero burst+aoe cc.
  • .
    These strategies will work when executed properly. Enjoy.

    Bother my gameplay in any way shape or form and you can expect to be ticketed for zone disruption. Cause any form of disruption on any PVE server and you can expect to become VERY unpopular VERY quickly.


    Don't be such a Grinch.
    If you need auction house go to a garrison or dalaran if your an engineer. Banks are everywhere. Anyone can set their Hearth to Dalaran. Just do that for a week or instead of Stormwind or Orgrimmar


    So we need to be inconvenienced for your sake?

    No.

    Don't be such a Grinch.


    I very much doubt the majority of players on PVE servers will be too thrilled with the idea of having their capital cities disrupted. If they wanted pvp theyd be on pvp servers..and they arent.

    I dont mind anyone having fun. But not at my expense.
    Sounds stupid.
    I see that advert in Trade - right click - report for spamming.
