Enemy Druid: "Don't worry, my brave warrior, here comes a heal!"
Tazanian: "Stun hammer to the face! God, I hate treehuggers!"
Enemy Warrior: "Ain't *THIS* a bitch? /dies"
Team Blueragebar: "We win again! Way to cock block that heal, taz!"
Enemy Mage: "Frost nova FTW. Eat ice you stupid ugly cow warrior!"
Tazanian: /cast BlessingofFreedom
Herk: "Grrrrr.... /madcowspittle"
Enemy Mage: "Can't we just get along? EEEEP! /dies"
Of course the quote of the night...
Herk: "Sorry bout that, dude... I didn't see the rogue..."
So anyway, 7-3 for the 3v3 team, MM Hunter (Mabd), Herk the Hybrid warrior, and Taz the holy/prot/ret/insane pally.
Lost to two teams with shammies, and a Pall/Warr/Druid team. We'll get better tho. Spec when I replace the headphones/mic that blew out last weekend, and we can vent.
But uh... damn, arena is a lot nastier than I remember from last season... Melvin and Co are SCREWED. They'll either have to reform every week, or get used to 200 points a week. I've been trying to get magebert to respec his priest a bit to do some 2v2 with Mabd. What does he lack? Imp mana burn. "I've never really seen much use for it in Arena..."
Now a mm hunter and disc/holy priest should pwn in 2v2. And magebert aint a bad player... unlike, say melvin. He's just a raging idiot sometimes.
Still, its nice having a 3v3 team with two people with decent reflexes... I still suck, but, well, I come prepared. We will get much better. And Taz and Herk both will scale nicely with a coupla pieces of better gear. The team makeup works well... Herk had some concerns about that... the typical team he's seen was Lock/Pally/War
I think Hunters are taking the places of locks in a lotta teams. Decent control, drain ability, higher dps and survivability. (SL lock is harder to kill but does a hell lot less damage... UA lock does more dps, but goes down much faster...)
And that 41' range silence is a killa.
More disturbing... Herk's single minded crusade against the entire mage class now that I explained the whole BoF thing to him. He is to mages what Michael Myers is to sex crazed teenagers. Note that I haven't actually *CAUGHT* him pleasuring himself over the bodies of dead gnomes, but that kinda creepy sexual tension is definitely there.
