My Week in Arena and WOTF Nerf

First, I watched the MLG tournament this weekend, and it was great! It sucks that yet another RMP team won though. I'm getting pretty tired of that over-represented comp in 3's that's for sure. The amount of CC the comp has is just ridiculous. I'm hoping that blizzard makes a change soon, maybe putting sheep on DR with blind or something similar.

That said, my week in arena was fairly productive. On my warlock, I managed a 1500 rating in 2v2 with a disc priest, using nothing but 5/5 hateful and 2 PVP rings and PVP trinket. I managed to pick up a couple more pieces this week after that, so my gear upgrades are underway. My goal is to get 1800 in 2v2, then find a decent 3's team, playing as an affliction lock. Next week I'm starting 2v2 with a resto shaman in my guild. I've never played 2v2 with a resto shammy, so I'm hoping that goes well. I've been watching vids, and reading up on guides to try and get a handle on the nuances of using a resto shaman healer.

On my druid, I'm currently doing 2v2 with an affliction warlock. He's very experienced, and was about 50 points off of gladiator several seasons ago. This team is also at 1500, and we're getting a lot of nice upgrades for the warlock. He's very skilled and really knows what to do without it needing to be said. I'm hopeful we'll go far on our 2's, and eventually find a good DK to run DKLD for 3v3.

Lastly, I cannot cheer enough for the will of the forsaken nerf. This nerf is long overdue. There's a reason any time any team has to go up against another team that has a fear in arena tournaments that they all choose undead. It's pretty OP, so the fact that WOTF will now incur a 45 second cooldown on your regular PVP trinket and vice versa will be a very welcomed change. No more UD rogues using trinket/wotf. Many locks are excited about that I'm sure! I'm now glad my rogue is a BELF. :p


  1. even though the wotf nerf is indeed a nerf, it's still the best racial and everyone will still choose undead

  2. yes but gone are the days of going up against all undead teams that just WOTF fear 1, trinket fear 2, and now are on some serious DR for fear.
