Dying in openers certainly isn't fun

still die in openers post vial nerf
Blizzard, stop playing SWToR for a moment and wake the hell up.

None of that will help a Resto Druid. Any other suggestions?

Wonder how those 2600 rdruids do it.

lol some classes cant be counters like dks if ur class sucks vs dks ur never going ot get nay better no matter what u do. personaly quitting wow n finding a game that has a ba;lanced pvp gaming scnerio for you is abetter option., blizz makes to much excuse to not balance out things when it be easier to just balance it n keep burst n cc down so people have a chance to live longer then 30 seconds. and many who say diferent play the clsases or team with the classes that will own you everytime and they dont care cos they know they face you, they win n thats all they care about is themselves not the other players who get mad n frustrated cos the game suits their ego cos they suck so bad that they can win no matter what you do. untill they face a team with same set up who are skilled n own them over n over then theyll be on here crying to. so in allhonesty find a new game to play with even pvp set up. im currently thining o putting wow aside for good cos their employees at least the ones who are responsble for design n game play only care about them selves n let the power go to their head n keep buffing themselves n if the nerf their class they nerf somehting that wont matter or affect their game play. welcome to wow n th crap it unfolds in your life. if your one who dont play op class or team with op classes ur screwed n they dont give a rats butt about you.

I am sure the team often training the shadow priest helps too. Having a nice agro sponge works for resto druids.
Hey relax guy, duel rogues constantly and you will get better at dealing with them since you're doing 1v1 it will carry over to 3v3. Relax guy come on.

I agree but at the same time you are one of the OP classes right now. Freaking Shamans have been amazing this entire expansion.

So have holy paladins.
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. :)

Wow. That is the absolute worst trying-to-be-helpful GM post ever.
Yes, I am rude.
So has anything been fixed in my week-long absence?
they just need to remove the game

that pretty much sums it up brah!
this game sucks
So I finally managed to dodge the angry barrage of 2k+ rated rogues running vial and hit 2.2k. The problem is I am currently too scared to que because of the shear amount of vial trinkets out there and the possibility of running into legendary daggers.

I have never been this scared in my life, I haven't played arena in over 2 weeks. I am currently having nightmares of rogues opening on me and killing me. It's not only rogues who keep me away from arena, Hunter/Melee cleaves are almost equally as scary. I like arena, I just dislike dying in openers. I dislike dying in openers so much that I can't even arena anymore. In WOTLK I never had this problem because it was actually balanced around that burst meaning people couldn't just rush in and spam CC and get a kill without risk of getting counter globalled. Cata burst is not intended therefore not prepared for meaning it's just plain stupid and gives unfair advantages to one side who can rush in and spend 30 second on CC people while being immune to damage and CC.

I don't really know what to do with myself. I have just been telling my partners I don't feel like arenaing but I think they might kick me off the team soon. I tried raiding I've just cleared 8/8 and it's getting a little boring. There are no real changes to fix anything in 4.3.2 except the vial nerf, but rogues still do crazy damage without vial.

10/10. . . Bravo!
Guys it's okay. Vial got nerfed, look at how balanced things are... r-right?



Well... guys... keep paying! B-because pandaland will fix it! I know you already paid Blizzard for Cataclysm and put your trust in them that they'd balance the game, but sometimes you gotta just blindly trust them again! I mean look at how much they learned from TBC -> Wrath -> Cata... r-right?
I couldn't find this thread. It was getting ganked by a rogue in a smoke bomb.
So funny how many people blame the game for their own inadequacies. If I cant get 2200 its because RMP openers are too powerful

This is a l2p issue
