A game with added reality...

So arena...

Aerthson the druid (arms and fury), our friend Sugars the lock, and Mabd were doin 3v3. Itsa O.K. We'll do better as they get more gear, and we iron crap out. Ima STILL making bad target calls, but I think that has more to do with my getting acquainted with the insane amount of CC a MM hunter, SL/SL lock and Boomkin have. We kept running into warrior heavy teams, and crushing them. (Cept for one were I made the uber bad decision to dps the pally healer on a pally/2 warrior team... just let the lock eat him while the druid CC's the warriors...)

Aerth and Sug still need to get their anti-rogue tactics down. Locks doan have much chance, but a Boomkin SHOULD be able to lay waste to a rogue.

The best match was us against three locks. I love killin locks. Almost as much fun as clubbing baby seals...

The there were the scrubs... Unbound and Majeure got their points in a 5v5 with Melvin and crew. Still hanging around 1320 ish on that team. Ifn ya know my Melvin stories... the best game was us against 5 shammies... Majeure with bloodlust is truly a terror to behold... those friggin Frostbolts are just sick fast damage, and with the rest of the team, Maj was left alone. Played with Herk (Arms & Fury) most of the matches, and it was fun to see us both on same page... a shame Melvin isn't capable of that level of teamwork...

Btw, Melvin wants Majeure to respec POM/Pyro. So there would be three mages on the team with POM/Pyro, adding greatly to the firepower. I told him hesa idiot...

So something I've noticed in the past month.

A lot of your melvin quotes sound like me....and my MMORPG friendsandfamily have a joke about my "magic 8-ball answers"(ie: [class] sucks/rocks at [role]).

This scares me.

On the otherhand?... I tank multiple mobs just dang fine.

3 POM/Pyro mages that kill maybe 2 targets and then die quickly themselves. Oh wait they'll ice block to live for 10 more seconds.

Boomkin's being able to lay waste to a rogue I'm not so sure about that. I know you get high armor as a Boomkin but typically unless he has mostly arena gear boomkins will have cloth armor which even with a times 4 mark is still laughable. That and being boomkin doesn't change your type so you are still sapable if a rogue can get in there. If the rogue vanishes after trees are summoned the trees will stop and are practically wasted. With as much CC as you have you could consider going back BM its calling you and you know you want to.

That's my whole problem with Rogues... If I catch one in the open I will CC the crap outta him. Unless he trinkets, Shadowsteps, Blinds, or does that dumb poison shit.

All of which seem to happen a lot. It doesn't matter if Nature's Grasp goes off when I am stunned.

Just like when I am playing Herk... if they lock me up with stuns... I get dead.

Course... Herk hits Rogues like their ancestors have offended him sooo.

@armsandfury
That and you have an ability that gains you health from being stunned as an MS warrior. Along with that you'll probably have a full rage bar by the time you get out and that rogue will eat it quickly. If there is any class a rogue has bad chances against its a warrior almost regardless of spec.

Im a gladiator rogue, and Im not gonna lie a rogue has very good chances against every class 1v1 if played correctly.

Boomkins dont eat rogues, they should almost never even get a cast off. Without high res you are basicly a slightly less squishy clothy.
