Level 100 PvP
We're starting to get some good guides and info on Warlords of Draenor level 100 PvP, so I thought I'd take a moment to highlight a couple. Above is Pypo going through some of his more successful set-ups he's found so far. Also, you may remember Dillypoo from the Hunting Party Podcast a few weeks ago, and he's put out a level 100 guide over on Arena Junkies, which can be found here.
I haven't been enjoying PvP as much in Warlords as I had hoped. As I've already mentioned here, I was incredibly excited about Ashran in beta, it was just so much fun, but it is, unfortunately, a huge cesspool of terrible on live. I've tried on both horde and Alliance, and while it is a little bit more fun while playing horde, it's still pretty terrible. The thing is, it's not really fun to just slaughter people who don't know what they're doing. I mean, maybe every once in a while it's fun to feel OP, but it doesn't give me that adrenaline rush that I get from good PvP. So we've basically got the option of either playing with really terrible PvP'ers, or playing against really terrible PvP'ers. And really, I'm not that good at PvP, so when I'm complaining the quality in there, you can be assured there are significant problems.
I've also been really disappointed with the CC changes, or at least, the CC changes for some classes. We'll continue to see a lot of people die during one CC effect. Warriors of course have the best of this, it seems. Again, I'm glad they cut down on the duration of fears, I'm glad they made traps DR with other CC: those were great changes, but they should have gone all the way, instead of leaving a few classes really OP.
I don't have a much Arena experience in Warlords yet, as I'm still waiting for some friends to get geared and ready, but what I've done so far, it's looking a lot more balanced. There are still the few OP classes, but the Devs seem to be promising that once they get a significant amount of data, they'll hand out some nerfs. It's too bad we have to wait, but it's good to hear they're working on it.
Anyhow, there's my PvP rant for the day. I've gotten some good MM questions recently, and I'm trying to get the math ready so I can put up a post outlining my answers here by the weekend.
